5 Beach Scrapbook Tips To Inspire You!
Beach Scrapbook: This layout features just 3 photos! Hint – be selective with what you include!
You need to choose memorable photos that you'd love to look at every time you open every single page.
It may sound hard at first to not put all photos in your scrapbook. But as you begin to search and sort through your beach photos, you'll be able to piece together which ones are perfect for your beach scrapbook. You'll be able to visualize pages with these great pictures and start thinking of scrapbooking layout ideas. Create a pile of 20 to 30 photos that you absolutely want to include in your beach themed scrapbook.
You might have taken 20 beautiful sunset photos, but you'll need to choose just one or two of them for your album. The kids may have built several sandcastles, but just a couple of pictures will be needed for the album.
If you were to make a list of the top ten favorite things about your beach vacation, what would you choose?
♥ The sunsets?
♥ Kids swimming?
♥ Seeing a dolphin in the far distance?
♥ Diving through the waves?
♥ Collecting seashells?
Let these favorite activities become the sub-themes for your beach themed scrapbook.
Begin each layout by choosing different backgrounds. Most craft stores will have several beach-themed backgrounds to choose from. Keeping your photos and sub-themes in mind, have fun selecting background paper that will support each sub-theme. You might want to read our article on selecting the right type of scrapbook paper.
You'll find a paper that looks like sand or waves, pages with seagulls or starfish, and even paper with tiny beach pails and shovels.
Scrapbooking paper is very abundant, I'm sure you'll find an amazing backdrop for your scrapbook page. If you're not so fond of the supplies and layouts in a scrapbooking supplies shop, search for simple yet beautiful blue or sand colored paper.
