TOP 5 Scrapbook Ideas I LOVE!
One of my favorite ways to glue ephemera to a page is with washi tape!
You can also store your ephemera on your page in creative ways.
One scrapbook idea is to make beautiful envelopes for them. This helps store them and preserve them.
Once the baby is born, you'll have hundreds of photos and memorobilia.
In the scrapbooking world, this is called ephemera.
Those arrows sum up how I felt at the time. Life was moving in a different direction and it was hard to tell at times which!
Don't be overwhelmed by the number of photos you may have at the end of your holiday. Travel scrapbook ideas shouldn't be stressful (it's a vacation after all! 😂).
Below is a double page spread I created. Double page scrapbook spreads are great when you want to fit lots of things in.
As you can see on this page I have my plane tickets, passport stamps and 5 photos (some on display, others tucked away in envelopes)
This is a very interactive page, and one that's fun to create!
You could even use washi tape as a cute way to seal your envelope and a ribbon to produce beautiful borders.

Here are a few tips you can use to get started:
♥ Create one double page spread for every year that you scrapbook.
♥ Choose some of your favorite photos from the year that tell the stories you want to tell, then journal about each photo.
You can always go back to add in some embellishments later on - just get your photos laid out on a page and your thoughts and memories written down, then it's likely that more ideas will flow!
Keeping a list of scrapbooking ideas for different events is important. Having a note-pad of ideas always helps when I don't feel creative!
I love creating spreads that have every element of my everyday experience.
Here's a few examples...
Scrapbooks don't always have to be about photos of your loved ones.They can also be a masterpiece showcasing your collections.
From collections of candy wrappers, you've kept from different places across the globe or leaves you've slowly gathered over the years.
Creating a scrapbooking page of your collections is a great way to keep all of those beautiful memories come to life.
Create a scrapbook page that will highlight all the things you love or even the things and places where you want to go or what to do.
This is one of my favorite things to make. I love making my scrapbooks more interesting.
I put all my efforts into creating DIY projects (like making your own pouches for hidden journaling) so those who see my scrapbook albums see somethign hand crafted!
I create small tabs on some of my pages. I also design pull-outs to make every page interesting and fun.
Also mini envelopes are a great addition to the page and can be adhered using a small strip of washi tape or glue stick.
Making your own embellishments is fun and absolutely more affordable when scrapbooking. Whether it's creating washi tape ribbon, washi tape flowers, to scrapbook printables, this is one of the things I love to teach scrapbook beginners.
Making your own DIY embellishments is much cheaper and makes each of your pages more special. I have a ton of DIY embellishment ideas or inspiration you may want to try on my scrapbooking blog tutorial.
As I've mentioned interactive scrapbooks are my thing. Sometimes I create small pockets or envelopes and hide a little bit of remembrance like a small leaf, tiny photos, small trinkets I've received from people related on that page or place I've gone to.
These cute little projects are also known as journal scrapbooks. Because you can write some lovely journaling in there too!
It's a great way for me to also make use of scrap patterned papers that are lying around.
When traveling to different places, adding a map is one of my loved scrapbook ideas for creating a full 12x12 scrapbook layout spread.
You can make your own scrapbook printable map and glue it onto the scrapbook page. Then cut your photo to the size of the state of Texas and put it over the state. You can complete the entire map of your country if you do that.
This design doesn't always work especially for different types of maps. You can also try putting a map in the middle of the spread and scatter your photos around.
Make sure you use a baker's twine or yarn to connect your photo to the place you've visited on the map. This is a great inspiration for those who really love to travel!
Visual story telling! I love scrapbook like this! They are a great reminder of where you went and what you did!
Some people don't like to put together massive 12x12 scrapbook photo albums, if you're one of them try creating a smaller version of your scrapbook!
Miniature scrapbooks are fun and you can create an entire DIY scrapbook with simple things you have lying around the house.
From cut-out cardboard boxes turned into beautiful scrapbook album spreads using stickers, craft paper, and memorable photos!
Note: Having the perfect title for your scrapbook is as important as having the right layout and embellishment for your scrapbook page. Check out our book full of amazing scrapbook page titles and have access to thousands of page titles for you to choose from.
