A week ago I went to a scrapbooking event and decided to try out some new designs for my scrapbook pages. This is the start of a new scrapbook album of the holidays with family in 2010. Scrapbooking is a way to preserve memories, to chronicle events, and to tell your story. And it’s also a way to express your creativity. I have not been scrapbooking for that long and am still working on developing my own style in this medium.
For these pages, I designed borders to run across the top of the page and give continuity to each spread. A spread is two pages facing each other, i.e. side by side, when you open and look through the album. The titles encapsulate what is going on in the two pages and don’t need further explanation: “Thanksgiving Day Lock Out” and “New Laptop I Want my Internets!” Paper punches were used to add embellishments and corner accents were added to frame the photo collages. The focus is on the photos and the design pulls it all together.
