Scrapbook Layout Ideas: Smile for the Camera

Are you looking for scrapbook layout ideas? Today I’m sharing a layout featuring pictures from when my kid didn’t want me to take his picture. Say that 10 times fast! 😉 More often than not, my oldest tries to duck and hide when I pull out the camera. But guess what, I take those pictures anyway. And then, I scrapbook them. That’s just the kind of gal I am.

  • Scrapbook Layout Ideas: Document even the photos they didn't want you to take. http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2nI #scrapbookingDesign Inspiration: I used a layout design from my class “Scrapbooking Outside the Pocket.” I love pairing Project Life cards with photos for a fun layout design.
  • Color Inspiration: Since this layout is all about pictures I started with the strip of cameras and chose the colors from there. Plus it’s bright and fun, which I also love!

I knew the type of page I wanted to create so I went looking for photos of my son trying to block or get away from the camera. The two I found were both vertical photos, so I paired them with a 4×6 pocket card. I love the way this balances my page by creating a strip of photos across the layout.

I grabbed another pocket card for my journaling, this time in 3×4. I decided that this would also be a great place to hold my title. Using pocket cards in regular scrapbooking is super simple and an excellent way to use up that stash!

My oldest may roll his eyes at this layout, but I’m so glad I have this stage in his life documented. And now he can’t say that I never scrapbook about him. :) And I often remind him that if he wants me to create pages about him he has to let me take pictures as well!

Scrapbook Layout Ideas: Personality

Are you looking for scrapbook layout ideas? Today I’m sharing a layout about my youngest son’s personality. When the camera comes out, this guy typically hams it up. He makes all kinds of silly faces, but every once and awhile I catch a serious look. And while he definitely has a silly side, he’s a thoughtful kid too. I loved representing both sides of his personality in one layout.

  • Scrapbook Layout Ideas: Document personality photos! http://wp.me/p4nAhc-2nu #scrapbookingDesign Inspiration: I got this design idea from “Super Simple Scrapbook Challenges” with Stacy Julian and Darci Dowdle. The challenge was to arrange three 4×6 photos into a block and fill the spaces with patterned paper.
  • Color Inspiration: I went with colors that reflected my son’s bright and fun personality. They also happen to be some of my favorite colors. :) This layout makes me happy all around.

As I upload photos I always delete and tag my favorites. I have a category for personality photos of each person in my family. As I was scrolling through the pictures in that category for my youngest son I was struck by how much they showcased his personality. No other story needed, just him!

To keep things balanced design wise I dropped enamel dots around the edges of the page. I created a visual triangle across the entire page but also tried to make mini triangles at each point. In addition I made sure that all three colors were represented in each corner of the triangle. Three photos, three colors of patterned paper, three colors of enamel dots…threes are all kinds of awesome!

To wrap up this page I used some letter stickers to highlight the two sides of his personality. It was a bonus that I had stickers in exactly the right colors. :) Sometimes my scrap stash hoarding pays off.

A totally quick and simple page design that can be repeated again and again. Love that so much!
