Video Blog | 5 Ways to Use Shapes to Start Your Scrapbook Page Designs | Get It ScrappedThis lesson from Lynnette Penacho first appeared as a part of the Get It Scrapped Membership class “Canvas.”

When it comes to building the foundations of her digital scrapbooking layouts, Lynette Penacho is a HUGE fan of shapes. Her shape tool is by far my most favorite of her digital scrapbooking arsenal–it’s the digital equivalent of paper punches. The more layered repeating shapes on a page, the better.

In this video blog by Christy Strickler, we’ll explore Lynette’s top five go-to methods for using shapes as the foundation of scrapbook page layouts. Christy will share tips and ideas for taking these digital pages to paper or hybrid form.

Scrapbook Pages Inspired by the Flea Market Style | Get It ScrappedThe “flea market” decor style is eclectic one often including a curated collection of pieces that are seeminly unrelated, each with their own story, and yet combining to tell a bigger, single story.

This style incorporates objects one might find at a flea market, vintage pieces, second-hand belongings, or antique collectibles. These items often have contrasting patterns, unique textures and stylings and even a worn or old look to them.

See the stories and designs our creative team have made using this complex and charming style.

 

Christy Strickler says, “The story here is of my son and how he was very cautious about goats after one was a bit aggressive with him at a petting zoo. He was not thrilled that a goat took his bread when visiting a friend’s farm.”

“I had vintage ephemera featuring goats that was perfect for this page. Using the flea market style allowed me to mix old with new for a vintage fresh feel. I used some items that felt older due to their color or pattern and then added pops of brighter blue, green and light orange to make it feel more energetic.”

Deborah Wagner says, “This is my daughter, granddaughter, and me dressed up as angels for Halloween.”

“The flea market style seemed the perfect choice to give my page the old-fashioned tone I wanted. To give a timeworn appearance to the photo, I appplied digital actions. My clusters were created with jeweled flowers, beads, feathers, and lace: all the baubles you might find at a flea market. The white and pink feathers, flowers, and wings tell the story of our angelic day. The black elements and brushes were added to represent Halloween, and provide contrast.”

Sian Fair says, “This page is about some of the old buildings we explored in Berlin. Every window I looked up to seemed to me telling me a different story from its past.This particular tenement building had been converted into chic shops selling all kinds of things: a very fancy kind of flea market. But, more than that, I liked the idea of the history behind the building being represented by a collection of ‘Granny’s attic’ type embellishments.”

“To get the look going, I first of all turned to my scrap basket, which has a little bit of everything left over from previous projects. Then I found a lovely little packet of punched shapes and bits and pieces sent by a friend. Anyone who has ever taken part in an embellishment swap could make a page like this! I chose a white background to keep my page looking fresh and modern, and I added a big black bow to ground all the tiny pieces. I deliberately left the date sticker blank because the whole page is about going backwards and forwards in time.”

Kelly Prang says, “A friend of mine loves photography, and her daughter is an amazing dancer. They went out for a photo shoot to capture some images of her in her costumes for one year’s version of the Nutcracker put on by her dance company. I loved this capture and wanted to make a page using it.”

“Growing up, I took dance classes, and remember loving the costumes, makeup, bright stage lights, and audiences at performances. I wanted to create a page with a layered, busy feel to tie into the feeling of waiting backstage all crowded together in a small space for our cue to perform. I also spent many weekends wandering through flea markets with my family. One thing I always loved to look at were vintage papers, ephemera, and photos that were for sale at one particular booth. So, as I set out to make a page in the flea market style, I decided to use layers upon layers, with vintage looking ephemera and ribbon, string, and sewing.”

Kelly Sroka says, “Recently I replaced  old bookcases in my family room with two antique pieces I found at a local consignment store. I immediately fell in love with these pieces at the store and could not wait to have them in my home. I used the flea market style to document this new furniture because both pieces are different yet both are going into my home. The pieces also have histories that bring a flea market feel into my home.”

“To design my page, I chose papers and embellishments that looked vintage and antique, used and worn. The papers have vintage floral patterns. To accent the photographs, I used a kraft bag, cork stickers, tulle, and a doily–all of which give the page an antique look. As a final touch, I distressed the edges of the patterned papers to give them a worn feel.”

Scrapbook Ideas for Using Meaningful Shapes and Silhouettes in Your Scrapbook Page Foundations | Get It ScrappedThe first layers you place on your page play an important role in your design’s final look.

These first layers (and their shapes) create visual weight, directional pull and contribute to the balance of the design.

When those first layers are shapes or silhouettes that are relevant to your story, you not only affect the overall design of your page, but you also infuse it with meaning.

Our Creative Team has made pages that show you examples of shaped foundational layers.

Nicole Mackin says, “The story of this layout is about my daughter putting together and filling out her Valentines.”

“I chose the heart shape to focus on the holiday of Valentine’s Day. I traced a template and cut it from two different patterned papers that I layered for depth. It’s placed to bleed off the page edge to add interest. The heart shape automatically becomes the focal point and also creates different lines to work with.”

“I put photo inside the heart, but placed to the bottom right so the viewer can always see that it’s obviously a heart.To balance the weight of the heart cluster, I added an embellishment cluster at top left.”

Stefanie Semple says, “We took a roadtrip to a game farm in the Karoo during the winter holidays. I enjoyed taking photos of the different landscapes we encountered through the front window of the car.”

“This shield shape reminds me of roadsigns, and it was my starting point for these photos. The photos worked perfectly in the design, allowing me to showcase five different terrains and times of day. As all of them worked well as background photos, it didn’t matter if the title and elements obscured part of the photo, there was still enough to get the gist of the terrain.”

Kristy T. says, “My children often create and decorate all different types of paper planes. The boys, particularly, love to invent  elaborate games with different rules and levels.”

“I used a triangular shape in my foundation to echo the shape of a simple paper plane and the act of folding paper.  I created the shape by cutting the arrow paper diagonally first and then trimming the leftover piece to give the ‘open’ triangular space for the newspaper print paper.  I also trimmed the papers slightly so that I could leave pieces of the of the newspaper print paper showing on the lower edge plus left side of the page.  This creates a subtle visual triangle and adds a bit more detail to the page. I added emphasis to the lines of the triangle using washi tape and a border strip sticker.”

“The lines of the triangle act as leading lines, so it is a natural choice to place the photograph and journaling where the lines intersect. The triangular space is left open to showcase the folded newspaper print pattern and allow the viewer’s eye to be led upwards along the title–just as a paper plane flies up and into open space.  The colors in the washi tape and the embellishments along the base of the page add balance and draw the attention back into the page.”

Audrey Tan says, “This page is about my boys learning how to snowboard for the first time.”

“I used a snowflake shape as my first foundational layer. I created the snowflake on Photoshop, placing a photo on four of its points and reserving the other two points for title and embellishment. Hence, the snowflake became my focus in telling the story via pictures. The center of the snowflake holds the journaling.”

Christy Strickler says, “This page documents the bond I have with one of our cats. I am pretty much her favorite human.”

“I used two shapes as the foundation for the page: a square and a heart. The square represents the solidity of our bond. I layered a heart overlapping it to represent how much we love one another. The size of the shapes forced me to play a bit with the size and placement of the photos. Both pictures are slightly smaller than 4″ x 6″ in order to fit them within the shapes. Once I had worked out where to place the photos, I was then able to place the title, journaling and other page elements.”

Jana Oliveira says, “I have a series of layouts that are as much art journal as scrapbook page. This is one of them. On these pages, I play and record messages for myself.”

“In this case, the shapes in my foundation blend together, with each other and with my photo’s silhouette. I applied gradient colors to them to contrast with my shape that is all black. I used a silhouette of my portrait that would mix together with my paper. The kits I used had great graphic shapes which I always love using. As I have a tendency not to use a lot of 3D embellishments, graphic shapes like this help to enhance the page.”

Scrapbook Page Starter: Use a Story-First Approach | Get It ScrappedQuite often a scrapbook page comes out of the simple desire to get a story told. A “story-first” approach means you:

  1. start with your story first, writing it before you design,
  2. make room for the written story on the canvas right away,
  3. choose the right photos for that story, and
  4. finally, you’ll use color, motif and texture to layer meaning onto the page.

 

Ronnie Crowley says, “When my daughter was home for the holidays it came up that her boyfriend has said yes to something he didn’t like. It made us laugh as I had done the same early on in my relationship with my husband and I shared the story of the Mars bar. I knew had to document the story and so jotted down the basics.”

“Once I knew approximately how much text I had, I reviewed the digital templates I had looking for one that would work. I don’t often start with a story first but having written it I had a good idea of how much space I’d need for my journaling and this limited my template choices. As someone who starts with pictures first I had anticipated finding this technique harder to use, but, in the end, it worked well. Having chosen my template I knew I needed just one picture to I quickly found in the “creative commons,” a place to find photos that can be used for free. I’ll be doing this more often to record memories from the past for which I don’t have pictures.”

Kelly Sroka says, “My son joined our local fire department as a junior firefighter when he was fourteen. He was not too thrilled to be a member at first, but as he learned more about all areas of firefighting, his interest grew. After a few years he became an integral part of the station and was awarded Junior Member of the Year in 2105. Today he is studying to become a wildland firefighter.”

“I have wanted to document this story about my son for a while. Unfortunately, I do not have any photographs of the ceremony in which he was given his award. Here, I took a story-first approach. I opened up a blank document and wrote the story on my computer, not thinking yet about how I would eventually create the page. After I had the story, I went through my pictures from the last few months and found two photographs that showed my son as a firefighter. I used patterned paper and embellishments that describe my son.”

“The story-first approach is not one I use often–I usually begin with photographs. However, I have realized over the years that I have many stories that I would like to document even though I may not have pictures directly related to the stories. Creating this page took me a little longer than usual because I had to look for the pictures I wanted to use, but I am so happy to have this story documented and will definitely use this approach again.”

Jana Oliveira says, “My story is about all the changes that recently happened in my life and my one little word for the year: Embrace.”

“Once I had the story written, I knew I wanted the journaling to be as big as the picture, so they both would take center stage in the layout. I put a picture of myself parallel to the journaling so the reader knows it’s about me. I used very little embellishment to keep the story highlighted. I use this approach often when I just I want to talk through the story, often with a picture of myself.  I find this approach freeing when it comes to choosing products for my page. If they don’t have much importance to the story I don’t feel I need to use them.”

Nicole Mackin says, “While my daughter and I were looking through heritage albums my mom had made, my daughter realized that a lot of our ancestors lived and settled the area that we recently moved to. She made a comment about how we were meant to live here. I used her quote as the basis for the page.”

“Story-first is an approach I don’t often use, as I mostly let photos or products guide my scrapbooking process. It was, thus, definitely challenging for me. Once I figured out what story I wanted to tell, I typed my journaling on a basic white cardstock so I would have the freedom to use it however I chose. Then I looked for a photo and products that would fit the theme of the story. I did really like this approach as I feel that there was more intention behind the layout. But as someone who fits my journaling into my almost-finished page at the end of my process, starting without design or product choice figured out was tricky for me!”

Kristy T. says, “This page is about how I think about things a lot, which can be good but can also be really exhausting and tends to affect my sleep, so sometimes I just wish that I could switch my brain off! I was pleased with this page, and it made my husband smile.  I probably wouldn’t have made time to create it, if I hadn’t spent some time thinking about what was happening right now and what stories would I like to tell.  I don’t often scrapbook about myself.”

“As I thought about my story the title of the page came to me and I knew that those words would be the main way I would tell the story. Thus, I needed a bold high-contrast title and supporting imagery. I visualized how I would represent my story, so drew the light globes around the space for the photograph and journaling within the frame.  I added extra words and random dates ‘floating,’ plus simple embellishments to support the story.”

“I use a mix of approaches to my scrapbooking but it has been awhile since I started with story first.  I like this approach because it means I consider more story possibilities, and that I can prioritize the stories I want to record. I generally write my journalling last and just make sure I allocate space on my pages as I create.  I think for longer stories in particular, writing the journaling first would be very helpful.”

Debbie Hodge says, “I started with a story of seasonal change and these photos that were snapped from my living room window over the course of one week. I’d been taking shots as the river behind our house changed dramatically in a few days — from completely iced over to melted, including coming over the banks and being a home for returning ducks. I wanted to present the sense of this quick change.”

“Here, I’ve got three photos taken on different days but within a short period of time, and 3 journaling bits to tell of these three instances. The title is a clear and descriptive label and the colors, patterns and motifs all support an outside spring-season story.”

“The process here is how many of my pages go together: I start with story, understand the page-parts needed, and then allocate space for those parts, arranging them on the page.”

Include the Vintage Looks of Past Decades on Your Scrapbook Pages | Get It ScrappedSpecific decades or eras of time are often associated with particular textures, music, fashions, art, food, and so much more–all of these  making up this time period’s style. You can draw inspiration from any of  those elements to evoke a sense of that time on your scrapbook page.

Our creative team took a look at our detailed “decades” pinboards on Pinterest, and made their own pages full of texture, color, motif and other elements chosen to trigger a sense of four past decades: the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.

See what they’ve done and then get to work on your own vintage-styled pages.

Karen Poirier-Brode says, “This page is about my grandson’s obsession with robots and his father telling him the bidet function on the toilets at my home was a robotic toilet.”

“Robots and space and comics were great themes of the 1950s, and this style worked well with my story. I used 1950s images from Shutterstock and retro-styled fonts to evoke this era on my page. The photo of my grandson in his superhero outfit was stolen from his mom’s Facebook page, so coudn’t be enlarged too much, but he fits well on the small planet Mars in one of the images I used. The cutout trimmed photos were part of 1950s ads and busy backgrounds. Text blocks with strokes were also popular then.”

Shanna Hystad says, “Last year my husband and I stopped for burgers at an old Drive-In that we used to go to when we were in high school.  It was fun remembering old times and tasting those delicious burgers again.”

“I love the 1950s.  I often think that I should have grown up in that decade.  It seems like life was simple and the style was classic.  I incorporated the 1950s style by using retro fonts in my journaling.  I also printed my photos in a photo-strip arrangement, converting one copy to black-and-white and the other to vintage color.  I added 1950s elements from a scrapbook collection by SEI: the Mayberry Collection, which I love.”

“I knew these Drive-In photos would be the perfect fit for my 1950s theme.  I enlarged and edited the photo of the Dicks Hamberger sign and printed it directly on white scrapbook paper.  I wanted the sign to be the focus of my layout.”

Stefanie Semple says, “My parents separated when I was 4, and it wasn’t until I was in my 40s that my Father gave me slides he’d taken, including these photos here. I have very few photos of me and know only a few of the stories associated with them. These are of me playing swingball, and the journaling comes from my mom’s recollections when I showed her the photos.”

“I designed to evoke the 1960s as I was a child of that time. The clothes I’m wearing in the photos are reminiscent of that era–way too short for my liking now–but stylish then. Woolen and crocheted clothing was in vogue then, and I remember a green crocheted dress that I adored. The doily at top on the page reminds me of it. Colors in fashions then could be bright and bold, and nothing was very matchy-matchy–like the color choices in the layout. I overlaid a map on a wood grain to add to the faded feeling of an era gone by.”

Amy Kingsford says, “This page is about my grandmother and a specific memory I have of spending the night at her home. I wanted to recreate the same 60’s inspired look that was prevalent in the colors and motifs that decorated her home and her closet. I used a strong retro color scheme, and accented it with several 60s-inspired motifs and embellishments.”

“Though this particular photo of my grandmother was taken in the eighties, everything from her glasses, to her hairstyle, to her mustard colored couch and her flowered wallpaper was representative of the sixties.”

Cynthia T. says, “We went to see Hair the Musical when the Broadway Cast came to London’s West End. It is something hugely important in our lives: to me it was the musical that made me into a performer, and I had told my daughter all about it since she was three years old. At age six, she could sing all the lyrics, and she ended up following a career in the Performing Arts, so this was like a dream come true to both of us.”

“The musical is from 1970, and reflects one of the most important times not only in the US but in the whole world’s history. It made sense to reflect the decade not only with photos but with the page design.”

“Still being a bit of a hippie at heart, I love the colorful tie-dyed effect, which I incorporated with the background paper and the slide viewer element. It not only brings the 70s feeling onto the page, but let me include several photos without crowding. The paper with swirls, and the font for the title (Psychedelia) added more 1970s touches.”

Amy Kingsford says, “This page is about an apartment my husband and I almost rented that was carpeted entirely in green shag.”

“To transport my viewer back to the 1970s, when green shag carpet was all the rage, I used several 70s-inspired motifs and patterns including color blocking, viewfinders, vintage cameras and other little vintage snippets.”

“I grew up in the 1980s. My memories are of music icons, fashion influenced by them and fun slang language, some that I still use today. I used these influences in color, texture and motif on this page. Neon colors of pink, green and turquoise are grounded by black and white. Records and cassette tapes reference music. The lace represents fashion influenced by Madonna and Boy George. Some my favorite slang words and phrases are also scattered throughout the page.”

The benefit to working with geometrics is that they are versatile:

  • You can combine and manipulate the pieces for different effects. They’re interesting.
  • They aren’t necessarily feminine.
  • Most geometric prints have a secondary color of white or off-white – so they mix with other prints well.
  • They are a wonderful way to bust some of your scrapbook stash

Nicole Mackin says, “I love that the design of this sketch guides your eye to the photo because all of the elements look as though they are coming from outside the page toward the photo.

This page is about my husband telling my daughter after her dance performance that she had made me cry because I was so proud of a challenge she had conquered prior to the performance. One interesting thing about this page is that there is not any patterned paper. I was able to use all cards to fill in the different boxes. This type of sketch is perfect for using up some of those project life style cards.”

Karen Poirier Brode says, “My page is about the quality of patience that I find lacking at times in my life. I liked this month’s sketch because it has a nice clean graphic style and let me use a lot of patterned paper without being overly fussy. I liked the use of a small, medium and large patterned print for each of the main patterned paper blocks in the original layout and duplicated that. I reduced the size of the print on the journal card to make the pattern more neutral. I used an alpha from another kit which I recolored to coordinate with my primary kit choice. I like lots of embellishments, and it was fun to see how I could incorporate several of them in one small embellishing spot. The kit was fun with the complementary colors of red-violet (like my glasses frames and lipstick) and yellow-green.”

Marcia Fortunato says, ” I liked that this sketch could accommodate several photos and/or patterned paper, which made it very flexible, and that the spaces were around the outside with the journaling in the middle – something I wouldn’t normally think to do.
My layout is about my husband’s entire family gathering for my mother-in-law’s 80th birthday. This was the first time we had all been together since the children were small, so that made the gathering even more special.”

“An event like this usually has many pictures, so even though the original layout used only one photo, I knew that I could replace some of the patterned papers with photos. I also replaced some of the open spaces with coordinating patterned papers.”

Scrapbook Ideas for Using Active White Space | Get It Scrapped

The shape of white space in a visual design can be ACTIVE or PASSIVE.

Active white is area left open on purpose. It separates content and is a design element itself.

Passive White Space occurs naturally, for example in the area between words on a line or the space surrounding a logo or graphic element.

Use white space in your design to make it easier for the human eye to understand your content: minimizing clutter, creating emphasis, organizing your content, creating groupings.

Here the creative team has made pages with generous and “active” white space and tells you how they did it!

Ronnie Crowley says, “My daughter moved into her own apartment this year and the page is about her first Christmas tree.”

“The addition of the stitched Christmas tree in the large area of the white space below the block of photographs activates it and adds tension to the design. It also provides an anchor for the star embellishment behind the title “Joy” while supporting the theme of the page,”

Stefanie Semple says, “My Facebook feed was full of photos of the Super Moon on the nights of the 14th and 15th of November 2016, and this layout features my attempt at documenting it.”

“I used a design with asymmetrical white space running between two clusters to contrast my two photos of the super moon, both blurry but one taken during the evening and the other after dark. The two distinct photo clusters are viewed independently, starting at top left, the light embellishments and yellow flower and journal card highlight the daytime photo. The second photo grouping is darker and at the bottom right so the eye ends up there and then takes in the journal card and views the moon once more. The arrows also direct attention to the two important spots.”

Christy Strickler says, “As a holiday treat, my son and I got flavored coffee and pastries from a local cafe, and that’s the story here.”

“I wanted the focus to be on the photo, so I placed it as a part of a a layered block in the bottom left of the canvas, leaving generouse asymmetrical white space around it.”

To keep the photo block from being perfectly square, I broke into the white space by extending pattered paper bits, journaling strips and the title from the main block. I wanted something around the edges of the layouot, but not a perfect frame, so I used bits of tape to create a sort of broken frame. The tape is striped with some of the striped bits pointing towards the photo.”

Jana Oliveira says, “We went to visit my husband in Seattle, and soon we are going to join him there. As we explore the city I love to take pictures of my husband and son from the back as they are walking. I think it’s reflective and signifies their bond and friendship: they are partners, and my son loves his daddy’s company.”

“Behind the photo, on the large open area of the canvas, I added a copy of the same picture but just with an outline effect using an app called iColorama. It is a reflection of the main image. This is a method I use over and over again in my pages, it brings unity when I look at the pages I think make the reader to think about things that were going on when you give a second angle from the picture and makes a nice interaction with the main picture.”

Sian Fair says, “This page is about a collection of souvenir shops and cafes we discovered in Berlin.”

“I started this page by creating two distinct areas: the title spot and the photo spot. Then I used the space in between to draw the eye from one to the other and round the page by adding trailing clusters which shape the white space whilst still leaving the canvas looking uncluttered (I hope!). As the page is about finding relief from the bustling city in a friendly cafe, I liked the idea of my page combining space to breathe with the energy of the trailing plants, just like the ones in the photo.”

Karen Poirier-Brode says, “My page is about a class in ceramics and how much I like it.”

“I decided on incorporating asymmetrical white space into my background–though that background isn’t necessarily white: rather it’s a patterned paper. I broke the left edge of my white space with my main photo and embellishment cluster to draw attention to the picture of me with the drill in the ceramics lab. I also broke into the white space on top with my small embellishment cluster of washi tape and button. This position gives that group more emphasis, as does its distance from the photo cluster and the title, and this helps balance the page.”
