Each year as scrapbooking continues to be one of the top hobbies enjoyed by people of all ages, more and more ideas are being shared at scrapbooking parties, on the internet, and through craft magazines.
Here are the seven hot scrapbooking techniques you should be using on your layouts this year!
Whether you choose to weave a border, photo frames, or different shades of green to add grass to a page, weaving adds a fun texture and look to your layout.
Although you can use construction paper to weave with, experiment with different materials, such as: patterned scrapbook paper, wallpaper, ribbon or durable wrapping paper. If you use a small weave, you can adhere your weaving to pre-cut stock paper to create most any design. For example, flower petals look stunning made out of weaving.

Try blending polka dots and plaids together, or how about mixing different shades of orange and reds together? By sticking with two main patterns or two colors, you'll be surprised at how well they can work together.
Whether you're scrapbooking a card, a mini scrapbook, or working on a scrapbook page, adding texture will make a big difference in your layout.
Burlap, textured wallpaper, sandpaper, lace, and corduroy have been super popular choices this year.
Embellishments can provide texture as well. Tiny hearts, silk flowers, brass tacks and tiny pom poms are fun choices.
If you're creating a layout that will be kept in a plastic sleeve, then you need to be sure to choose embellishments that aren't too bulky. However, if you're making holiday cards, then you don't have to be as concerned.
One of the key ingredients in creating an awesome scrapbook layout, is to experiment with new ideas!
Even if you have your favorite template, just by adding new textures, glitter or a little bit of a weaving, can make a huge difference.
Don't be afraid to mix and match patterns or putting together two colors that typically are kept separate. Implement some of these scrapbooking techniques and you'll be onboard with this year's new trends!
