Experiment with scrapbook paper and design a layout that makes things pop!
Try choosing scrapbook paper that will make your pictures pop.
Let's say you have three photos of your little white poodle and she has a red ribbon on her fur. You could choose a cute dog-themed scrapbook paper such as paper with bones, paper with different pictures of dogs on it, or paper with the words "Woof! Woof!" scattered onto the page. However, you might want to consider using bright red paper and accessorize with white embellishments. The red paper will bring out the bow in each picture, which otherwise might just be overlooked.
Another way of making layouts pop is to use contrasting colors. If you have photos that are filled with vibrant colors, then tone the page down by using scrapbooking paper that is neutral or soft, such as off-white, taupe, light green, or a faded blue. If you love the vibrant photo colors, then use black or dark brown as the background as this will really bring out the colors.
Putting together a spread that contains black and white photos? As you explore the paper scrapbook aisle, look for paper that has a vintage look to it, or choose a bright solid background.
