Sometimes it's hard to keep the inspiration when you are trying to come up with ideas for scrapbook layouts. You might feel that you have run out of ideas or just starting out and really don't know where to begin.
Either way, the following chapters will help you create an eye catching layout!
When you're learning how to scrapbook, you need to have in mind what you want to create and for what purpose.
For example, you may want to create a full book, just a page, or even a poster. Don't let a full book overwhelm you it's better to start off small than not start at all! Traditionally scrapbooking pages are 8 X 8 which maybe a good place to start. A lot of the scrapbooking paper, borders etc are based on 8 X 8.

However if you are not beginning scrapbooking and are more experienced try something new that compliments your theme.
For office memories create a Rolodex scrapbook album with your pages on each Rolodex page. Or if you are creating a family scrapbook album present your scrapbook pages as a family tree theme. To take that idea further each page could be a leaf of the tree. You could choose colors that compliment this such as greens, browns and pressed leaves and flowers as decoration.

There are two ways to gather your ideas and thoughts on your scrapbooking layout
1) Collect photos keepsakes, scrapbook supplies such as magazine cuttings, scrapbook paper, colored cards, ribbons, buttons that are relevant to your topic and design a layout around that. e.g. From your holiday you might have the tickets, photos, receipts and menus. Put these all together and work out what works best for the page size you have chosen. Then you can begin to see what colors you would like to use, what sort of border etc. Or
2) Decide on your color and theme, what style of patterned papers to use from the start e.g take the colors from your wedding or blue for a baby boy and then gather all relevant pieces, photos, borders, colored card that relates to this color.
Deciding which way works best for you will depend on your topic and stage you are currently in. You may be about to have a baby and want to capture all of your memories in a scrap book or find yourself with loads of photos, cards and keepsakes and want to present them in a scrap book. For the latter choose number 1.
Either way, map out your layout and design first. It is critical to the overall look and feel of your book. You need to know how much space you have got and how many photos you can include.
