Scrapbooking made easy

As most of you know I am a digital scrapper.  I love having awesome layouts and really cool pages to display my pictures.  However, living in an apartment it’s very difficult to stay organized.  On top of that, finding a good chunk of time to work on it so that I get something done is difficult when there is a toddler running around.  So, almost 10 years ago I turned to digital scrapbooking.  I created my pages with my digital photos and printed them and put them in a binder.  Many many books later I am still at it.  I am little more behind on my projects than I would like to be at this point, but it’s a lot easier to get caught up this way.

In an effort to get caught up I took some time to work on my 2012 book and I thought I would share some layouts that help bring out the best in what I am trying to say.

Telling a story with your page

Baby and his puppy


Sometimes the pictures that you take at a particular time lend themselves to tell a story, not from your point of view but of whomever is in the picture.   I have many books where they are written from the perspective of my son, our dog, or our cat.  🙂

Telling a Story

Story Page


Similar to the other layout.  This one tells a story in order of what happened over the course of about 2 minutes.  Babies are crazy and thank goodness for digital cameras.

Themed Layouts

Theme Page


Creating a themed layout is as easy as incorporating color.  Adding the Italian Flag behind these pictures makes it super easy to figure out that we were at some kind of Italian festival.

No words at all

No words Scrapbook Page


And sometimes the pictures just speak for themselves and you don’t need words or embellishments.    I find myself using layouts like this a lot more mainly because I take a lot of pictures.  But also there isn’t a particular story, it’s just candid shots of my family and having those is what I love about scrapbooking and having pictures to look at.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Be back soon with more layout ideas!!

    I need to get back to scrapbooking! I am so behind! You’ve inspired me to set a block of time aside to scrapbook as one of goals next week!
    Your pages look great!
