Among other things, doodles are very hot in scrapbooking today. And why not? They are so much fun and easy to work with. I think the most difficult aspect is making sure your layout isn’t too busy or that the doodles get lost in the page. This scrapbook page I just completed features doodles from Wish Bliss Studio at After 5 Designs. I also threw in a cute, doodled banners – banners are also trending right now.
Sometimes, deciding what to scrapbook can prevent you from actually scrapbooking. Looking at years and years of photos can leave a scrapbooker at a loss as to where to start. My new mantra – JUST START ANYWHERE! I am not going to scrapbook chronologically – it is too restrictive. I imported several photo folders into Lightroom and I just previewed a general imported file when I came across these wonderful photos of Matty & I from 2003. As I am usually the photographer, there aren’t that many photos of me. By taking self-portraits, I was able to capture a special moment between myself and my son. I also don’t believe in using every photo either. Just pick the ones that speak to you or tell a story.
