Although most little girl scrapbook layout ideas would focus around the colour pink, sometimes it is nice to focus on a different colour. In this case I have used the blue from the dress and added in a few expected girl colours such as yellow and pink.
Begin making this page layout by taking a piece of white 12×12 scrapbook paper from your scrapbooking supplies.
Decide which photograph you are going to use and cut it to the size and shape you require.
Find a piece of blue scrapbook paper that matches the dress or the colour that best matches the person in your photo.
Use the blue scrapbook paper to mount your picture. Mount it leaving approximately a 1cm gap all the way around the photo to form the frame for the picture.
Then mount the picture onto white card leaving the same size gap around the edge.
Find a similar piece of scrapbook paper and cut a large strip using decorative scissors to leave a decorative edge.
Attach the strip to the right hand side of the page using double sided tape.
Cut a smaller panel from the same piece of paper you used to mount your photo onto and mount it onto the page on top of the decorated panel using 3d foam.
Then simply attach your photo using 3d foam.
Print the name of the child onto the blue scrapbook paper. Use a nice font and blue writing so it matches the dress. If you do not have access to a computer or printer then use scrapbook stickers or handwrite your wording.
Cut around the name using decorative scissors to give it a nice edge.
Mount your wording onto white card.
Then attach the name to your scrapbook page layout using double sided tape.
If you have any vellum quotes, place these along the left hand side of the picture. Choose wording that corresponds with your scrapbook page idea.
Now that you have built up the base of this scrapbook page layout it is time to work on the embellishments.
Select some coloured prima flowers and place different coloured buttons inside each flower using sticky dots.
Then attach a strip of ribbon across the scrapbook page before fixing down the prima flowers. Make sure you place the prima flowers on the page before gluing them down so you can get a good idea where you want them to go.
Making scrapbook page layouts of your children is a fantastic way of capturing moments in time and much better than simply adding a photo into a standard photo album.
When you create a scrapbook page you can add so much more to a photo and with the wording and memorabilia you can include in your page layouts you can fondly remember your children’s younger days forever.
