Free Scrapbooking Ideas

Apr 28, 2008
Take memories that are precious to you. Add some scraps, some mementos or photos. Frame these collections with borders, stickers etc., add some decent journaling and you have the creative hobby of scrapbooking. Scrapbooking allows you to revisit those memories any time you want.

If you are new to the art of scrapbooking, then you should start out with simple scrapbooks. Projects such as birthday albums of kids or any simple easy project is what beginner scrapbookers should start out with. Doing it this way takes the confusion and complication out of it.

With the popularity of scrapbooking, there are many websites that cater to it. On those websites, one can get many free scrapbook ideas. When you start your project, you may have a number of ideas or thoughts about how you will set it up. With the vast number of different possibilities of themes and layouts, it is a good idea to write down your ideas and then go online to either add to them, investigate other ideas or just look for some complementary items. You must always keep the focus on the original subject. Everything flows from that subject.

With the internet saturation of society, there is no reason to be confused about the subject or ideas for your scrapbook. There are virtually unlimited ideas about scrapbooking in general. Free services include laser cuts and printing of pages. These ideas and services are easily obtainable and the best part is that they are all free.

Another good source for free scrapbooking ideas is newsletters. Most scrapbooking website offer them just for you subscribing to their list. They will supply content to help you get your ideas going. Every newsletter offers something new to think about. Make a directory on your computer and store these newsletters for future references. I like to have a notepad screen available to jot down new ideas.

Getting your kids into scrapbooking is much easier with all the free items available both online and offline. Newsletters will expand their idea base. These ideas will enhance the child's imagination to decorate their scrapbooks. Remember to keep the project compact and simple. The worst thing you can do is to overload their minds with too many ideas. If you do it right, you will create a life-long love of scrapbooking for the child. With all the free templates and ideas, children can finish their projects easily and cheaply.

You can look at your project many different ways. With all the free scrapbooking ideas available, you can see your projects in lots of forms. An example of a good idea is when you are involved in a scrapbook project, sometimes you can't use all the photos. Collect the photos not used and save them for a new project. For instance, suppose you were making a scrapbook about your child's first birthday. At some point you decide that the scrapbook is finished and that adding more photos would make it look cluttered. Take the extra scraps photos and save them for a new project. Perhaps you can make a scrapbook that is a representation of the alphabet. You could use photos of the cake for C. Mix them in with photos of cars or anything that starts with C. Scrapbook subjects are as numerous and varied as anything. They needn't be about people or events, although that is what is most common.
