Something all four of these scrapbook pages have in common is there is only one spotlight photo or even no photos. I think the “Twenty Quotes I Like” page could showcase a special favorite photo as well. Also unique about these examples is how journal inspiring they are. I have a personal journal of favorite quotes and it would be so awesome to include a page devoted solely to my love of special quotes. A page devoted to meaningful quotes would reveal much about the scrapper’s personality and character.
“10 Things I Love About Being a Mom” is not only a touching tribute, but also a wonderful journal prompt. I could see even longer responses being given with more details. Or this could be a recurring theme in successive albums. The spotlight photo would show changes in the scrapbooker from album to album and create a timeline theme that is consistent throughout the family albums as the years go by.
Sometimes I only have that one great shot that I want to scrapbook so the page has to be extra special--extra creative. That’s why I love the “Seaside” page with its simplicity and minimalist beauty, yet the page is filled with a lovely memory. This is a mostly wordless journal page with only a short caption to capture the moment concisely.
Of course I would want to create a fabulous (yet simple in design) album page devoted to one of my favorite and helpful past times. This can also be a wordless journal page with just a Pinterest Board title to say it all. As with the real Pinterest Board, choosing a catchy board cover photo is very important and draws the viewer to click on for more.
These Pinspirational album page layouts have made my priority list when I sit down to get creative with my family photos. I hope they inspire you as well. Please visit my “Cuttin Up” Pinterest Board to see all the wonderful ideas I have come across so far.
