 How to Make Easy Scrapbook Pages | Get It ScrappedUse this 7-step formula to make easy scrapbook pages. Amanda Jones paired one black-and-white photo with a same-sized block of washi strips and mounted the two on a shared mat. Amanda says, “I knew I wanted to use this silly photo of my son on a simple page, highlighting some of his quirky personality traits. I added my journaling in a list-type way to make it punchy and take up less room on my layout.”

How to make this layout

  1. Trim one photo to 5″ x 3.5″ and trim a piece of white cardstock to the same 5″ x 3.5″ size.
  2. Adhere strips of washi tape across the 5″ x 3.5″ cardstock block, leaving a space 2/3 of the way down tall enough for your title. Add title with alpha stickers or by die-cutting it from the block.
  3. Mount the photo and washi-adorned cardstock on another piece of white cardstock measuring 5.25″ x 7.25″.
  4. Select patterned paper with strong geometric pattern and just one color plus a neutral for your base.  Adhere the photo block 2″ from the top of the page, at horizontal center.
  5. Adhere coordinating strip of washi tape across bottom edge of canvas.
  6. Add journaling on strips of varying length below the washi block.
  7. Embellish within journaling with flair and at end of journaling with tag or label.
