My Family History Scrapbook Layouts

Here are some of my scrapbooking pages and layouts. They are a work in progress. But as you can see, I keep them simple.

I have retouched some of the photos with an older version of Adobe photoshop. 

You can add more embellishments and information to your pages than I do in these layouts, but these pages give you an idea of how your first pages can look.

In this layout, I used a piece of paper that looked like old and worn corrugated cardboard, then matted my photo on black cardboard. I also used ribbon to the left and along the bottom and added some stickers - one to write my great grandfathers name on and the other a saying that fitted the page.

The above page was also very simple - I used paper from a heritage style pack I bought from a department store, then matted the photo on a stronger shade of maroon like the design in the paper. Stickers were added for the name and the lower right.

In this page, I used striped paper and similar colored matt for the photo. The flourishes in each corner I bought off ebay - I think they were laser cut and I bought a pack of 10. The flowers were bought from ebay and a department store.

This was one of my first heritage pages. I matched the coloring of the photo with the paper - again from a pack of paper from a department store. I matted the photo with corrugated cardboard, a matching plain cardboard and black cardboard.

The stickers for his name were found in a "dollar" shop and matted on to cram carboard that had been cut with edging scissors and then onto black cardboard. The hourglass was also a sticker I found in a "dollar" shop.

This is one of my favourite layouts, although I don't have any genealogical information on it.

I used paper that looks like an old newspaper and placed over a piece of black cardstock. I also matted the photo on white paper and then on to black cardstock that I had torn the edges. I also added a piece of ribbon I picked up somewhere along my travel.
