Time again to share inspirational examples of real life scrapbooking from around the Web! See if you can get your creative juices flowing by taking a peek at these fun finds…
I just love how Karen_Johnson incorporated a favorite line from a fabulous children’s book into the journaling & title of “Eat You All Up!” This page really jumped out at me in the gallery, particularly because of the bright, childlike letters against the watercolor style washed out background.
Using a list of journaling prompts is a great way to capture real life, but figuring out how to make that attractive on a scrapbook page can sometimes be tough. “Today” by emilymerritt is a great example of how to do it with style.
“Good Guy Gone Bad” by Linz is so much fun to look at, from the silly story to the fantastic use of this kit to the perfect layering and fun title work. This is a page you can sit and look at for a long time and just keep finding more things to love about it.
A favorite way to document the first year of life is to highlight what a child is learning and doing at a particular stage. “Just Rory” by Anna xx is a fun example of this technique … I like how she carried the ball theme throughout the design, from the journaling to the photo to the background paper. Two more great features – the title work is cleverly worked into the story itself and the angle from which the photo was taken makes it feel as if little Rory is about to jump off the page and throw that ball right at you. Cool page.
Another fabulous example of eye-catching title work is “Class Work Show Case” by shades of bliss. I love how the white background made this page really pop out in the gallery and the variety of angles used when taking the photos really adds to the overall design. The idea of lifting this almost makes me anxious for school to start again … almost.
I’m always a fan of pages that pull together photos taken over a significant time span, such as shown here in “Time… Changes Everything” by TracyPea. The simple design of this page really lets these photos take center stage and even though I’ve never met this young man, I’ve enjoyed looking at how he’s grown and changed over the years.
“G’day Mate” by nzmumof4 is another example of a layout where the light background really helps make the page stand out. I love the layering in this one and the use of the journaling cards poking out of the side, as well as the nice blend of realistic and more cartoon-like embellishments.
Bucket lists are always fun to scrap and I fell in love with this one by iJenny the second it caught my eye. The little bits of pink against the neutral background are a cool touch and the use of the perfectly balanced variety of font sizes and weights adds a lot of fun to the page, as do the actual items on the list. A perfect way to wrap up this week’s Story Board!
