Generally speaking scrapbook layouts tend to be square.
Or sometimes rectangular shape.
And that’s usually pretty much it.
But it doesn’t have to be.
Let’s explore some ideas for scrapbooking outside the square and adding some extra variety to your scrapbook layouts.
And a circular scrapbook layout is so easy to make. And can be so effective.
And by the way, this works for both digital scrapbookers and traditional ones too.
OK so let’s try something a little bit more adventurous.
How about this Heart shaped layout I made for my daughter for Valentine’s Day?
I reckon it looks pretty cool; what do you say? And being a non standard shape gives it some extra ooomph.
And yes, it works for both digital scrapbookers and paper scrapbookers.
Want some more shaped scrapbook layouts?
Digital scrapbookers can find out how to do it here.
Paper scrapbookers need to work on a sheet of acrylic transparency and should choose element that help to show off the ‘transparentness’ of the layout.
I’ve cut rings instead of circles. And you can see how I’ve trimed this photo to remove the sky and just left that area transparent.
This is a really fun scrapbook layout I think. And very versatile.
I have a free digital scrapbook template for you to download here. Together with the instructions for how to use it to create your own scrapbook layout.
Once you start thinking ‘outside the square’ for shapes for scrapbook layouts the possibilities are limitless.
I made a 50th Birthday card using a template I made from the numbers 5 and 0. Just increase the size, chop off the back part and you have a great scrapbook layout in the shape of numbers.
What other shapes can you think of that would work? Let us know below with maybe a few directions on how to do it.
