Honor Veterans in a Layout

This Veteran’s Day, remember and honor family and friends that have fought for this country through a scrapbook layout dedicated to their service.



Design by Erica Hernandez

When you have only a small photo, give it star quality with an uncluttered design and a few well-chosen embellishments. To boost the presence of her grandfather’s World War II military portrait, Erica framed it and filled the extra spaces with punchy colors. The frame’s dark edges match the feel and coloration of the photo. Add a date and place the photo was taken, as well as journaling about  your family member’s service.

Design by Christa Paustenbaugh

Focus on a special role and use journaling to explain how it affects your daily life, as Christa did on this page about being a military wife. Create subtitles or small bits of journaling with pint-size letter stickers. Use a circle punch or another shape punch to transform scrap paper into easy page accents. Cut your journaling into strips, then group similar ideas on journaling blocks.
