Scrap booking Ideas

If you’re new to scrapbooking, you’ll need lots of free and easy scrapbooking ideas to help you along! This website is here to help beginners get started on this addictive and rewarding hobby where you tell stories… using papers, photos, glue, words and your memories!

Scrapbooking shouldn’t leave you feeling overwhelmed or constantly behind. It’s okay not to make a layout for every photo or every moment (or every new product). Perhaps the key to simple scrapbooking is not just with the layouts themselves but the entire scrapbooking approach.

Identify your reason for creating a scrapbook. Are there stacks of pictures in a drawer that you want to do something with? Does your iPhone currently have over a thousand pictures of your kids? Do you want to commemorate your wedding anniversary by displaying your favorite moments? Or would you simply like to take on a project to satisfy your inner-creative? Figure out why you want to start a scrapbook and what it will allow you to do.


A smaller size means less intimidating space to fill. For layouts: If you only make 12×12 pages, try creating an 8×8 page and then mounting it on 12×12 cardstock for a framed effect. Likewise, if your pages are always 8.5×11, try mounting a smaller layout in the center (or off-center).



Maybe you’re making a baby album for your adult child. Or maybe you didn’t have a baby book of your own, and want to create one. When scrapbooking years after the birth, you might find you don’t have many photos or a lot of journaling. Can it still be done? Of course! You might need to estimate on dates of certain photos: “About six months old, 1950” instead of “Six months old, September 22nd, 2005”, for example. Yet you can still capture the memories of that special time. Interview relatives. Look online for historical facts from the baby’s birth year. And looking back, it’s always interesting to include what kind of person that baby grew up to be—future doctor, lawyer or scrapbooker?



Butterfly Origami

I am sure there are many tutorials out there on how to make an origami butterfly but I thought I would put a short tutorial together to share with you on how I made mine. The nice thing about this butterfly is that you should have everything right there with you that you will need to make these lovely fluttering creatures.

Let’s start with an easy one. Choose the size you would like your square to be, mark it out on your paper and cut it out. I like to make cardboard templates when I am wanting to make more than one of something. I used 3,4 and 5 inch squars for my butterflies.




Start with your paper white side up. Fold in half, open, then fold in half the other way. Now Fold the Paper in half diagonally, both ways. Fold all four corners into the centre and crease well. Turn Over and Fold all four corners into the centre again. Open out the model so far. Fold the outside edges into the centre line. Holding each inside edge from the point at the centre, bring these edges out to the points shown. Then, fold the top edge downwards and flatten. Rotate the model, and repeat step 7. Fold the top half backwards and flatten. Fold down the front outside corners. Fold these outside corners inward.




Fold the butterfly in half. Now fold the top layer backwards, at  the angle shown. And now fold the back wing backwards also at the same angle.
