Have you been having a clear out and recently come across some old photos or have just had an event that has left you with a load of pictures that you don’t know what to do with?
Why not create a scrapbook? A scrapbook is a decorated album that is different to a standard photo album because it contains far more than just pictures alone. A scrapbook contains scrapbook page layouts that are decorated and embellished with memorabilia such as tickets, certificates, souvenirs together with personalised scrapbook quotes.
Creating a handmade scrapbook will preserve and protect your most treasured memories in a beautiful and unique way. No scrapbook page is the same so you will soon be looking at your scrapbook page layouts and thinking ‘I really am the best photo album creator’.
Not only is scrapbooking becoming one of the most popular hobbies, it is a fantastic way to relax and unwind and there is an immense sense of achievement after each scrapbook page is completed.
Some people may consider they are not ‘arty’ enough or do not possess the skills to attempt such a project but even amateur crafters and children alike can enjoy such a comforting pastime. It is also something that can be done with all the family and need not be expensive.
Even if you feel you are not the best photo album creator once you have started to create your very first scrapbook page layout the ideas soon start to flow.
The first place to start is with your pictures. Choose the ones you wish to use for your scrapbook page layout. Remember this type of album does not have to include every photo you have and more often than not the best photo album creator will only add one or two pictures to each page.
You will then need to find some items to embellish or decorate your page. You can do this buy purchasing items in craft shops or just use everyday items you already own. The most important aspect is to add any memorabilia that you have from the event or time the picture was taken to give the page layout that extra dimension.
If you do not have any suitable embellishments, then always add a date and place name so that in years to come you can look back and remember exactly where and when the picture was taken.
Being the best photo album creator is not all about skill and art work. Sometimes throwing together and experimenting with colours that you would not normally put together creates a totally unique and special scrapbook page layout.
It is always wise when creating a scrapbook page layout to lay the pictures and other embellishments out before securely sticking them to the page, this way you can have a good look at what the end result will be and make any changes before its too late.
