Scrapbook Using a Timeline Format

Hello Friends,
I created this layout for the Get It Scrapped blog using a timeline format.  Read the full blog post here.  It was a great way to summarize the events of our girls weekend to Lake Chelan all on one page.

Now let's go create!

Scrapbooking With Red, White, and Blue

Happy 4th of July!
Using red, white, and blue in scrapbooking is not just for the 4th of July but can be used for other types of celebrations.  I created this layout several years ago.  These are vintage photos of me and my siblings at a bike race in our hometown.  The use of an Americana color scheme is just what I needed to bring this event to life.  Adding in stars, flags, and some sparkle in the title brought it all together. Try this color scheme on other layouts such as:

  • picnics
  • bike rides
  • parades
  • neighborhood or school activities
  • pool or lake fun  
Don't forget to document those stories of your childhood.  I have vivid memories of this annual bike race and the red bike I had.  Just wishing I could identify more of the kids in these photos.  To my friends who are not in the US, these colors are great for you too. Have a safe and memorable 4th of July!

Now let's go create!
