Want to get more creative scrapbooking tips your layouts?
Today I want to give you some scrapbooking ideas to help you think differently about your scrapbooking and perhaps even inspire you with these scrapbooking tips!
A timeless bit of scrapbook advice is to keep some of your scrapbook pages simple.It's easy to feel like you have to put as many photos on your layouts as possible. But I'm a big believer that in many cases, less is more.
In the page below, you'll see I used one picture, put it on a really chunky black matt, and then embellished around it.
Using one photo also creates an un-mistakable focal point on your layout.
Plus, when you're only scrapbooking one picture your page automatically feels more open. Having space on your page is a good thing!
By keeping the scrapbooking ideas that you incorporate on your pages simple, you can also actually save on supplies and start scrapbooking on a budget.

The backdrop of your scrapbook pages can have a massive impact.
When deciding on scrapbooking backgrounds I generally follow a simple formula:
1. The more colors and busyness of the photo/photos the more simple and plain the background needs to be.
2. The more plain and simple the photo/photos is, the crazier I can get with my scrapbook background.
A great example of where I've followed rule 2 would be in the image below.
You can see I have a simple image of young girls in a sepia color. The photo is plain, simple with minimal action.
The scrapbook backdrop is full mosaic, bursting with colors and activity. And as I'm sure you'll agree, the scrapbooking ideas shown in this layout just works.
Simple and uncluttered pages are generally the best approach to use for scrapbooking albums.

Do you tend to place your scrapbook titles in the same spot on each layout? Do you use the same type of lettering over and over? Mix it up!
The beauty of scrapbooking is there are no firm rules that need to be followed. Try placing your scrapbook title vertically or along the bottom of a page.
To create the actual lettering, use scrapbook stamps, precut letters, letters torn out of a magazine, stenciled letters or letters typed with a really fun font.
A sticker message can even be used as a title. You can also make use of the amazing Cricut machine tool in your scrapbooking.
