Scrapbook Layout How-To

Design by Erin Clarkson

Step-by-Step Instructions
1. Arrange and print your photos, leaving room for a title, journaling, and a strip of embellishments. Erin's layout is a 9x9" scrapbook page, so she was able to fit all her photos on an 8-1/2x11" sheet of photo paper. If you scrapbook in a larger size, have your photos printed at a lab capable of printing larger sheets, or print your photos in two batches and size them to fit your page.

2. Mount the printed photo collage on a sheet of white cardstock, leaving room on the left for a strip of green patterned paper. Print out your journaling and title on blue paper and cut to fit the space as shown.

3. Add holiday-theme stickers or other embellishments to the empty space to finish the page.
