Family Scrapbook Page

This post is for a family scrapbook page.  It also serves as another tutorial on creating scrapbook  pages in Design Space.  You can make your own embellishments with Design Space.

Family is a very common theme for scrapbook pages.  I hope to show you the versatility of Design Space when creating pages.  You can do cutouts on the top page that show through to the bottom page color, cutouts for your pictures, write on the page, and make your own embellishments.

What You Need:
        • Download File
        • 2 sheets of 12 X 12 cardstock
        • tape and liquid glue
        • acid free tape (Painters Tape)
        • various scraps of cardstock
        • pictures
        • Download File
Paper Selection for the Family Scrapbook Page

One of the 12 X 12 cardstock sheets can be patterned paper but not both.  It is just too confusing. Other than that use any paper you want.

Cutting the Paper

The hole size can be changed if you are more experienced with Design Space.  If you want to do this and aren’t sure how, email me and I will send you instructions.

Design Space cuts the top page to 11.5 X 11.5 inches, making a 1/4 inch border around the whole page.

  • Edit

Before you glue the top page to the bottom page, attach the pictures where and how you want them to the back of the top sheet with painters tape.  I hand cut a square of fancy paper to go behind the word family.  Tape it to the back too if you decide to do that.

The family of owls can be attached with liquid glue.

Now you can attach the two pages together with the top page centered on the bottom page.  Notice how the cutouts and the gaps on all the sides show the back color. Glue the embellishments to the top page where you want them.

 Your Family Scrapbook page is finished.  If you want a two page layout repeat to make the second page.

  1. Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks
