Idea # 1 – Choosing the right scrapbook layout background. Romantic or whimsical.

Choosing the perfect background will help set the tone for your layout. For romantic pages of your wedding or engagement scrapbook, use a dark shade of red. You can also incorporate a scrapbook sheet showing wedding rings, or a one with love birds on it.

To add humor to a page, find a design with "XOXOXO" or kissing lips. Large craft stores, as well as scrapbook websites, carry a wide variety of wedding-themed sheets. Some sites offer customized options as well!

It's a great idea to purchase a design that has two hearts drawn in the sand with the beautiful ocean in the background. Inside of each heart, you and your partner's name will appear. You can also try using wedding gift wrapping paper for your scrapbook background.

Idea # 2 – Draw attention with special effects on photos

Choosing how to display your photos is key for your wedding scrapbook layouts or engagement scrapbook.
Because your photos will be the focal point of each layout, it's worth putting special effort into displaying them.
Here are three popular scrapbook ideas that will help your photos really come alive:

Choosing the right background can highlight your photos
  • Display photos as a filmstrip. If you're creating a layout of memories, use three or four photos to make a filmstrip. Just as a person might watch an old family film or video to relive a special moment, the "filmstrip" will give the same sentimental feel. Crop the photos into the same size squares. Using black card stock, create a frame for the photos, leaving even spaces in between the photos. Along the top and bottom of the frame, punch with a single hole puncher, giving the effect of a filmstrip.
  • Create black/gray/white photos with a hint of color. To draw special attention to a diamond ring, a bouquet, or a candle, use a program on your computer that will let you turn the photo into black/gray/white and add color to just one object. The result will be stunning!
  • Design a mini-book. If you have several photos of your engagement, wedding ceremony, etc., consider adding a mini book to the corner of your page. For instance, you might want to create a mini-book of your engagement with photos of you two facing each other, his reaching out for your hand, him getting down on one knee, the showing of the ring, your reaction, and then him putting the ring on your finger. If the layout is in relation to relationship scrapbooking, you can carefully cut and remove the plastic to reveal the mini-book on the page. Use transparent tape to reinforce where the plastic has been cut.
You can also do this for other special events that happened in your relationship that happens to have been documented well.

Idea # 3 – 'DEAR SWEETIE...' Make sure you include those love notes!

Did you and your hubby exchange love letters and notes? Do you still have them?
Choose a few of your favorites and photocopy them onto acid-free paper. Frame each letter or note with ribbon, twine, or strips of cardstock with hearts punched out.

Include a photo from the time period of the letter. Journal where the two of you were located when you received the note. This becomes especially touching if your husband was in the service or living in a different state because of his job.

You're also going to want to print out screenshots of your most memorable chats or text messages? If not, you'd want to put in some of the funniest or craziest exchanges in your relationship even as far as back before he became your boyfriend.

Idea # 4 – Make a top 5 or 10 'what i love about you' list

One of the hottest wedding, engagement, or anniversary scrapbook ideas is to have each person make a list of the top five or ten things that they love about the other person.

Be sure to include serious things such as, "I love how you tell me I'm pretty even when I don't feel pretty" or "I love that you get on the floor and play with our kids each night before we tuck them into bed."

Also include fun and quirky qualities, such as "I love your crooked eyebrows that distract me while we talk" or "I love after a good dinner you always tell me that your mom should take cooking lessons from me!"

It's a spectacular idea if you can do this together. You and your boyfriend, spouse-to-be, or lover can come up with an amazing list of fun and even weird habits you love about each other.

To make things even more creative, you can even keep a list of secrets or favorite things you do together and put them in an envelope or card and turn your scrapbook pages into a time capsule where you open these letters on your next anniversary or even on the nearest Valentine's day.

In years to come, these love lists will become very meaningful to the two of you.

Scrapbook stickers need to enhance rather than take over a page.

Idea # 5 – Recapture memories of a special date

What is your favorite date that you and your significant other have gone on?

Was it a romantic night with dinner at a nice restaurant, a movie, and then a stroll through the park? Or maybe an adventurous camping trip in the mountains? Was it a day that focused on helping others, such as serving in a soup kitchen or taking dogs for walks at the SPCA on Valentine's Day?

Anything you did from your first date when he just became your boyfriend to great adventures you've done together in the course of your relationship is something you'll surely want to have on your scrapbook. It's a creative way to remember your favorite day with each other. Here are some scrapbook for boyfriend ideas.

Make a special layout for this date. Include photos, ticket stubs, part of a brochure... anything that you have saved. This adds another dimension to your engagement or wedding scrapbook as it truly commemorates the moments where and when you fell in love.

Bonus: Your Beautiful Couple Scrapbooking Layout Guide

Having a life-long best friend is how I see having someone in marriage for eternity. This is my inspiration for this love scrapbook page layout idea.

For my scrapbook layout, I wanted to show the practical scrapbooker in me. The technique I used for my page is creating your own pattern paper.

You also have the option of creating your own embellishments with your own tools and equipment... or to even be more practical... upcycle or recycle materials for the love of Mother Nature.

In my layout, I focused on creating my own pattern by painting on a design. If you think you're not good at painting, it's not a problem, and do some abstract strokes. To save time, choose easy-to-dry student's paint. I created my own handmade heart tag for the lovely couple to matt their photo with.

Done in predominantly sweet color tones and hues, I wanted to make it look cute or sweet, hence entitled it, "A LOVE STORY".

Tell your love stories thru embellishments or some collected memorabilia from that wonderful day captured in a photo and now into a page. If you have none, you can opt for cut-outs from magazines or an old card lying around. It's a small but meaningful way to save nature, right?
Here's how I made this absolutely gorgeous page!

This was done last or after the handmade heart tag is adhered to the layout, to further anchor the tag to the paper thru stitching. But, you may also opt to stitch on your handmade tag before adhering It to your layout.
