Scrapbooking Layouts

I've been playing around today, and here are some layouts that I've come up with, let me know what you think. No I didn't design the stuff myself -- I used these elements from a designer at scrapbookflair.com and I decided where I wanted them placed.

I've also been practicing some new techniques here -- playing around with my wedding photos that were only taken with a disposable camera and were not anywhere close to being done by a professional. So I've scanned them into my computer and am working on a gift for my husband for our 10th anniversary coming up in June !!! So I need to get busy !! I also used these layouts from a few different sites around the net. I've been looking around for free stuff that I like and thought that this was some cute stuff. The page on the left I used elements except the prongs from scrapbookflair as well and the page on the right I can't remember where I found the background. I'll have to backtrack and start keeping better notes of where I get these things.

And I've started Ethan's birthday pages, and here are the first few that I've put together. They might not go in this exact order in an actual scrapbook but you get the idea. I can't remember where I got everything, sorry!! Someday I hope to learn enough to design my own elements and e-papers. I'm so addicted to this digital scrapbooking now. I've downloaded a free software just to get started and learn the basics, and now I'm hooked!!! So I'm slowly working on scanning in my old photos and putting them on disc as I complete years. I'm going to go in and scrapbook all of that. Now that I know what I'm doing I can go back and easily put things together. It'll be a lot of fun for me. And hopefully a lot of fun for my family in the years to come as they look back at all of these memories.


  1. Looks fun! I haven't ever looked into the digital scrapbooking thing. . . maybe I'd actually get some done that way! ;)

  2. Hey, your pages look awesome! I have been toying with the idea of going digital for our family photo albums--simply because I feel like I only have time for short-term projects, like baby books.

    Oh, by the way, me and the boys will be coming to Utah for a few weeks in July. Will you be around? We could paint, if you still were interested. . . .

  3. These look great, Wendy! I'm impressed.


I like feedback.... so go ahead and leave me some comment love. Thanks.
