I started Scrapbooking over 25 years ago in the usual 12 x 12 layout since then I have started making smaller scrapbooks that I have shared here and ask doing project life...but there are still certain occasions I love to throw down on a piece of paper and document.
Ok so to start grab the photos you want to scrapbook - you can add however many photos you want but I like to keep simple and generally if they are large 4 x 6 photos I like to use an odd number like maybe 3
I have been using my Prynt photo printer or Instagram camera photos for my layouts lately so I chose to use 2 photos for this layout
I found this amazing pad of big die cuts by DCWV so that helped with my idea planning. Then I had to choose my paper
These were the die cuts I chose to go with my 2 photos
Now for choosing my paper
Still not working - if I used the paper below the die cuts would blend in to much
I think I found the paper I’m going to use.
Now play around with your pieces and find a layout you like or looks good to you - don’t worry about will it make it into a magazine - this is for you - something for your kids and their kids to look back on. Stress free
I really wanted to use that small block with the gold palm trees but I could t got it into the layout so it looked good to me so I pulled it out and didnt use it
And here is the finished layout! I love it
Have fun with it and enjoy it - try not to put to much pressure on yourself - make memories not headaches ( wink)
Have fun crafting ya’ll!
