(And definitely some “Oh my gosh, how did you do that?!” exclamations from people who flip through your albums!) See for yourself with blog contributor Sachiyo Omitsu’s geometric scrapbook layout idea!

Sketch Round-Up Jan. 10-23

Sketches are two-fold winning wonders… how so? Well, for one, you can develop stunning projects without having to go to the trouble of designing a page completely from scratch — the blueprints are right there for you to work off of! On the flip side, sketches also allow you the freedom to include whatever tickles your scrapbooking fancy and means most to you — little knick-knacks and memorabilia, handwritten stories, special photos and embellishments, stickers and borders that add a punch of personal pizzazz and signature style. Whichever side to sketches you lean toward (or maybe a combo of the two!), they’re a surefire way to get the creativity flowing! Let’s see what you put together with these innovative ideas below.

Snuggle Into Storytime With This Infant Scrapbook Layout

Long before babies understand a single word, most li’l ones love to hear their parents, grandparents and siblings (and really, anyone!) read out loud. Storytime combines soft snuggles, bright and eye-catching pictures, fascinating voices and sounds, and of course, you! It’s a sweet and relaxing way to bond with baby. As an added bonus, a 2019 study found that babies who are read to every day are exposed to 78,000 words each year (or by the time they reach the five-year-old mark, around 1.4 million words cumulatively from storytime!), which could mean a positive impact on their future language skills! Well, let’s get comfy and creative, for it’s time to button up your memories like a cute onesie and make this so-in-love infant scrapbook layout!
