Handmade Family Scrapbook

Hello friends ,

I have shared a few glimpses into my Family Scrapbook that I am maintaining for my son's milestones and kind of journal of us yearly. All this while I have filled up albums that were store bought you can see them hence I decided to make one for ourselves now that I am confident pulling this off !

Handmade Family Scrapbook

Over the years I have come to learn that when you start a Family Scrapbook book, the only rule is there are no rules! Just go with the flow, use your creativity and enjoy the process!

Here are pre-designed layouts that I have created in the album. 

To start with I have gone with simple double punched corners which I have bound with a ribbon but later on added Book binding rings as I added photos the album went on to be bulky.There are many techniques one can use to bind the pages together. For someone who is making the album for the first time, spiral binding is the easiest method or goes for simple punch in the pages and binds them together with a ring.

I started making the album using 300 gsm Card stocks that are sturdy , I have even tried handmade paper for scrapbook albums you can see I have shared  HereHere and Here .

Scrapbook papers are also known as patterned papers and I love mix and matching them for my creations. There are scrapbook kits available with themes that you can choose from too but I always prefer mix and matching and making use of my scraps.

I love making my own embellishments from my scraps ,  I love stationary so I mostly use Locally available stuffs in my creations or make my own embellishments available around in my house.

Now this album is ready , I have the toughest job to do... ie printing my pictures and journaling 
( writing details ) about the picture. First Sort Your Photos and then the process gets easier !!

I love to have my pictures in 6x4 inches ie the post card size but at times an event needs more than one picture then I go for collages in 8x6 inches.

Do you journal / scrapbook your travels ? I would love to see how you document it , Do let me know will love to drop in and drop some love .

Hope to have inspired you all !

Thank you so much for visiting & taking the time to comment on my blog. I love to hear from you & truly appreciate your feedback. Have a crafty day!
