Scrapbooking page ideas can be about anything and everything. Here is a scrapbooking page idea for half way through a pregnancy.
This scrapbook page layout is made from just one piece of 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper, and one piece of 8 x 8. It is, in actual fact cheap to make but looks really effective.
Sometimes, experimenting and doing something a little different such as folding the paper you can really make a scrapbook page look quite professional with very little added embellishments or cost.
The background is cream coloured bazzill bling card stock. I like this type of card because it has a texture to it and the bling range has an added shine to it.
Bazzill bling card stock is available from any good craft store or card stockist. It is relatively cheap in cost and makes a nice change for standard plain card stock. You will also be spoilt for choice when it comes to colours with this range.
The striped piece of scrapbooking paper has been stuck to the back of the card so that when the flaps have been cut and folded back the striped scrapbook paper can be seen.
I have secured these flaps in place with small gold brads and placed the photo behind it.
You may have some baby themed brads in your scrapbooking supplies that would look even better on this pregnancy scrapbook page.
A long strip of the stripy paper has then been cut and placed above the main picture so that embellishments can be added to it.
These scrapbooking embellishments have been purchased from a shop and are made from metal. The footprints are perfect for a baby scrapbook page. It is worth having a good look in your craft supplies to see if you have something similar that will also fit in with this theme.
If you have a baby footprint rubber stamp you could stamp and emboss the image several times, mat and layer it on corresponding paper or card before attaching it to the scrapbook page.
The tag has been made from the same striped paper and the information which has been taken from a pregnancy book has been placed on the front. I have used an eyelet to stop the paper from ripping where the ribbon has been threaded. In this instance I have used organza ribbon but any ribbon will work just as well.
Some of the stripes have been carefully cut from the 12 x 12 scrapbooking paper and placed in the corner of the card, which brings the whole scrapbook page together nicely.
Always store your scrapbook pages in a scrapbook purchased from a reputable retailer as it will be acid and lignin free and will therefore preserve your pages for years to come.
