OUR AMAZING SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT IDEAS
Creating a scrapbook page using a 3×3 layout. Think tic-tac-toe!
When it comes to easy and fun styling options, creating a 3×3 design is at the top of the list.
Choose four photos for your scrapbook page. Using card stock, divide your background paper into nine equal sections–three blocks across and three blocks down.
Make the dividers a half-inch wide. Before adhering the dividers into place. trace the inside of the middle square and the four corner squares.
If necessary, crop each photo to fit inside one of the corner squares. Ideally, the photo should fill the entire square and once the dividers are added, it will appear as though the photo is framed.
Cut a piece of card stock for the center square of your scrapbook page. Add your title to the card stock. Adhere the photos and title to the page and then adhere to the dividers. Use the empty squares for journaling and embellishments.
The same format can be used with three photos instead of four. Arrange the photos horizontally, vertically, or even diagonally.

Focus on one photo – Simple yet elegant
Is there a photo that speaks for itself? Does just looking at the photo trigger an emotion?
Make a scrapbook using a 5×7 copy of the photo, place it off-center onto the background of your scrapbook page. Add a title to the upper left corner of the layout. Journal beneath the photo with just a few words. Add a border to one of the sides of the layout and embellish with a tiny bow, old buttons, or a sticker message.
Journal on index cards – Quick and easy.
Index cards are a great way to help in creating a scrapbook album. Try this:
1. Begin with a solid background for your scrapbook page.
2. Frame two photos with the same paper or cardstock or even washi tape on your page.
3. Place the photos in the upper left and lower right corner, with at least an inch and a half from the photo to the edge of the paper.
4. Using the index cards, journal about the photos. Feel free to use these cards throughout your scrapbook pages. It's a great journaling idea for a scrapbook page.
5. Center the index cards in the upper right corner and lower-left corner of your scrapbook page.
6. Matt the journal cards with a quarter-inch of paper.
Use different shades and a pattern of one color – Divide the background.
To highlight a couple of photos, scrapbook layout ideas can easily be diversified by using different shades of one color.
Let's say for example, that you want to make a layout of your kids jumping into the leaves. Use orange as your background. Cover the left half of the background with a leaf-patterned scrapbook paper that has muted yellow and orange leaves in it. In the center of the page, adhere orange card stock that is lighter or darker than the background. Now you're ready to add your photos to the card stock. Add a title to the page and journal in the lower right corner.
Embellish the page with a few tiny fabric leaves.
Incorporate different size photos – Enlarge the focal point.
Slant your photos. Super easy!
Crop your photos – Use circles and a square.
