Here's 3 Stress Free Scrapbooking
Tips For Ravishing Pages!
♥ Use a neutral background. Beige and off-white are actually two of the most popular colors for backgrounds. By using a neutral background, it allows you to choose a color theme for each page, but as an accent. For example, I recently created a layout of my daffodils that were just beginning to bloom. I framed each photo in yellow to match the flowers and used an orange background for my journaling space. I was pleasantly surprised at how much the yellowed popped against the beige background. The backgrounds don't have to be solid. I tend to look for scrapbook sheets that give the appearance of some type of texture. You can also purchase scrapbook albums that actually have scrapbook pages with a finished off-white background. There is no need to adhere a background to the pages.
♥ Alternate between two colors. For many scrapbooks, it works well to alternate between two colors for the backgrounds. While putting together a baby scrapbook album for my niece, I alternated between yellow and green. When I started the scrapbook we weren't sure if she was having a boy or girl, but I was excited to get started on the scrapbook. Another fun idea is to use school colors if you're putting together a graduation scrapbook album. Recently a friend created a family tree scrapbook album and she use dark green and mauve for her backgrounds. It was truly a stunning album.
♥ Use either pastel or bold colors. I also discovered that if I'm going to use several colors, to stick with pastels or bold colors. Some of the backgrounds are solid, while others will have a design in them. Pastel colors work nicely for baby albums, little girls, or wedding celebrations. Bold colors work great for little boys, teens or sports albums.
