10 Ways to Decorate Your Pages

Decorating your scrapbook may be one of the best parts of scrapbooking, but sometimes, it can be easy to get stuck. If you’re a scrapbooker who is looking for some new ideas, check out this list of then different ways to decorate your pages:

Scrapbook Layout

  1. Add pressed flowers, leaves,  shells, seeds, or other organic materials to give a page a more natural feel.
  2. Use ribbons instead of paper as a photo border. It’ll add so much more dimension!
  3. Don’t be afraid to make your own embellishments. Many of us buy the pre-made ones, but if you want a scrapbook that’s truly unique, get cracking on some original embellishments!
  4. Have an empty page next to your scrapbook layout to use for journaling. Have a loved one (or yourself) write down the memories that surround the photos on the opposite page.
  5. Include non-traditional scraps, such as ticket stubs, receipts, program pages, or newspaper clippings in with your pages.
  6. Play with texture by using texture papers or fabric as part of your scrapbooking layout.
  7. Use photos of all different shapes and sizes. Use craft scissors to cut out different borders or shapes.
  8. Swap supplies with a friend. Get together with a fellow scrapbooker and ask to swap supplies so that you both get a unique decorating perspective.
  9. Use postage stamps, stickers, or stampers to add something special to your pages
  10. Use paint, colored pencils, crayons, or markers to make your own designs and embellishments – all you need is some creativity and imagination!
