Celebrating Scrapbooking: Scrapbook Layout for National Scrapbook Day!

Hello everybody ! Soraya here to share a new layout using the gorgeous « Wild & Free »paper pack by DCWV available at Joann Stores. Love all those chic patterns, it was so hard to choose but I finally went for wood, butterflies and cards!

I cut those beautiful butterflies to custom one of the cards. I layered a small butterfly on the card then sewed them together with the Stitch Happy Pen. So easy and so fun ! It’s seriously one of my favorite tools!

Then I completed the title with the Word Punch Board for the word « day ». Love how the small letters are cut out so that you can see the wood pattern through them.

Five Scrapbook Page Ideas

Happy National Scrapbook Day from We R Memory Keepers

Hello friends! We hope you’re enjoying all the scrapbooking inspiration on the blog this week. Since Saturday is National Scrapbook Day we thought today we’d share five scrapbooking tips or ideas to help jumpstart your creativity. So grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy our scrapbooking roundup.

1. Create your own page background and accents

Fringe and Score Board Scrapbook Page by Becki Adams for We R Memory Keepers

Using your craft tools, you can create a custom page background and embellishments for your scrapbook page. On this lovely Mother’s Day layout, designer Becki Adams created her own woven paper background and beautiful paper rosettes with the Fringe and Score Board. What’s so awesome about this tool is you can cut or score multiple 1 inch or 1/2 inch increments at the same time. What a time saver! You’ll have more time to make those precious memories.

2.  Make sprinkle shaker pockets

Sprinkle Shaker Pocket Scrapbook Page by Eva Pizarro for We R Memory Keepers

We love this clever twist on the shaker pocket trend by designer Eva Pizarro! She used the DIY Party Sprinkle Punch to make sprinkles for the pockets, and then incoporated the pockets into her eye-catching sunburst design. With the Stitch Happy sewing machine she added the perfect finish with definition and texture.

3. Add additional journaling with mini envelopes

Adding mini envelopes made with the Mini Envelope Punch Board not only allows extra room for meaningful journaling, but it also creates a pretty cool design element! We love that Nancy Damiano was able to tell such a special story using this technique on her scrapbook layout.

4. Include memorabilia on your scrapbook page

Memorabilia Scrapbook Page with the Heatwave heat tool by Chantalle McDaniel for We R Memory KeepersDesigner Chantalle McDaniel created the perfect backdrop to showcase her son’s sports awards on this scrapbook page. She used coordinating colors and added some shimmer with the gold letters she made with the Alphabet Punch Board and Mini Alphabet Punch Board. The unique blue metallic background was made with the Heatwave pen and some blue metallic sheets. This layout is #1 in our book!

5. Add some mixed media flair to your Father’s Day page title

Father's Day Mixed Media Scrapbook Page by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

If your patterned paper is a bit too bold for the look of your scrapbook layout, try delving into some mixed media! Use a white paint wash to tone down the brightness of your paper. We love how designer Soraya Maes softened her Mini Alphabet Punch Board letters with some paint, and then gave them some definition by outlining them with black marker. We also love the layering effect she created with the Frame Punch Board.

Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you’ve found some scrapbooking inspiration and ideas for National Scrapbook Day this weekend. Enjoy the rest of your week, and happy crafting friends!

National Scrapbook Day Roundup

Happy Friday, and Happy (Inter)National Scrapbook Day tomorrow! We’ve been celebrating all week with plenty of scrapbooking inspiration, and today we’re going to cap things off with a roundup of some fabulous memory-keeping projects we’ve found on the internet. We love to see what you’re creating with our projects, and we hope you enjoy the inspiration!

Use your Envelope Punch Board (or 123 Punch Board) to make pockets for your scrapbook page. You can use your pockets to include extra photos, memorabilia, or journaling. CLICK HERE for more details and a process video by Zinia Armoiridou for Hip Kit Club.

Make a statement on your scrapbook page with a large bow embellishment! Use the One Piece Bow Die and the Evolution Advanced to create your bow from your favorite patterned paper. For more photos and details about Kim Jeffress’ beautiful layout, visit the Heidi Swapp blog HERE.

Mini albums are a great way to preserve photos and memories, and we love how designer Renee Zwirek used our Glassine Papers and Frame Punch Board as part of her Cinch book. For full instructions, visit the Pebbles Inc blog HERE.

Our Font Punches are perfect for adding decorative details to letters punched with the Alphabet Punch Board, but they’re also great for adding punched embellishments to your scrapbook pages. We just love how Chantalle McDaniel added some tiny flowers to her page with the Marquee Punch.

Include beautiful hand stitched accents to your scrapbook layout with our Sew Easy Floss. CLICK HERE for more about this gorgeous inspiration piece by user Puddin Head on Scrapbook.com.

Memories don’t have to be documented in an album. Designer Kim Jeffress recorded her family adventures in a Heidi Swapp Memory Dex, and easily added her journaling directly to the cards with the Typecast typewriter. CLICK HERE for more photos and details.

Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you’ve enjoyed this scrapbooking roundup, and that you have a wonderfully crafty (Inter)National Scrapbook Day tomorrow. Crafty cheers!
