Favorite Scrapbook Layout

by Lain Ehmann on March 30, 2012

As I’m dealing with family stuff, getting ready for True Scrap, and planning Layout a Day (LOAD) 512, I thought I’d share some of my favorite simple scrapbooking layouts. This one shares some of my favorite principles:

-Documenting conversations. Using people’s own words makes such an impact!

-Using a single large photo. For personality pages, I often use just one photo.

-Simple embellishments. When your focus is on the story, you don’t need a lot of doodads on your page!

    Such a great conversation! Wish I had scrapbooked when my kids were that age. LOAD212 and looking back at older photos (I DO have a lot of those!) has helped me remember a lot of things I hadn’t thought of in a long time though. Looking forward to True Scrap 3 and LOAD512!
