Simple and Easy Scrapbooking Inspiration in 2020!
1. Using Patterned Papers
A crowd-favorite product to design your scrapbooking pages is patterned paper. As a scrapbooker, I am sure you keep a variety of them in your scrapbooking stash! However, in case you don't have one stocked up for use, you can easily find them in most craft stores. They come in many bright and unique designs like beautiful flowers and fun fruits!
2. Making a Flower Wreath
Once you have your supplies ready, it's time to create your flower wreath! Pick a couple of little and big pieces from your pack and arrange them around the scrapbook page in a circle. Placing them perfectly is trial and error. Just keep moving the pieces until you see and get the perfect fit.
When you have made your flower wreath, you can proceed to prepare your photo. For this layout, I suggest using only one photo. As regards the photo mat, you can use any design you like as long as it goes well with the overall style of the scrapbook page. After you got that made, adhere it to the center of the circle. Add a title embellishment and your new lovely and unique scrapbook page is done!
3. Designing Your Page with Washi Tape
Washi tapes are a great tool for decorating just about anything. However, they are most useful for embellishing scrapbooks! If you do not have much time in your hands to decorate a scrapbook page, I suggest you give this idea a try.
To start, get a variety of washi tape designs that you love. This may be any kind of design - plain color, foiled, seasonal, floral, or for best results, a mix of every one of them! Next, choose a side of the scrapbook paper where you would like the washi tapes to be. Once you have this decided, start cutting out strips of varying length and stick them to the scrapbook paper. One of the tips in using washi tape is do not use a scissor to cut it. The more creative way of cutting them is by tearing them by hand. This will create a unique texture that I simply love!
Once you have filled up your chosen side of the paper with washi tapes, take your photo and adhere it to the opposite side of the paper. Using a photo mat in this layout is also a great idea as it will balance out the elements to both sides of your scrapbooking page. Next, add embellishments to fill up open spaces on the page. Then last, to finish the page, write a brief journaling telling the story of the photo.
I wish you a great and fun time trying out these ideas! I hope you have been inspired to make your own pages. As these are all simple and easy, you can even make them with your kids and the family!
