I wanted to create something personal for my dad for Father’s Day, to steer away from the typical golf gifts and chocolate. I had such a special wedding day and part of that was hanging out with my Dad and him giving me away, so I wanted to show to him how important that moment was for me.

Everyone is different when it comes to making a scrapbook, here are some handy hints and tips to get you started . . .

You Will Need

  • Decorative papers – you can NEVER have too many decorative papers, and there are lots of different designs out there to choose from.
  • Adhesive letters – If your not too keen on your handwriting, stick on letters are a great alternative for spelling out titles. They come in a variety of different fonts, colours and sizes.
  • Ribbon – I do love ribbon, the variety of what you can now buy has come on in leaps and bounds in the past few years, you name it you can (probably) get it, from glitter sparkly ribbon to rustic hessian ribbon.
  • Double-sided tape – I prefer to use double sided tape when making scrapbook pages, as sometimes glue has a tendency to seep through the paper and cause the colour to run, plus there’s the added benefit of not having to wait for the glue to dry!
  • Embellishments – As with decorative papers you can never have too many embellishments, they come in handy for all sorts of projects not just scrapbooking. Buttons and adhesive gems are great for adding a bit of sparkle.

How To Make

  1. Choose photographs that are special to you.
  2. Start with your background. What colours and textures reflect the mood or atmosphere you want to portray? Is it more of a modern or more traditional twist? This sets the tone of your page
  3. Include texture. I added blue buttons as it suited the handmade theme of my wedding, and suited the tone of the photography. I also included a three dimensional frame to crop one of the photos so that is draws more attention to that moment.
  4. Add Typography. Is there something you want to say about that moment? I spelt out ‘Dad’ and ‘Memories’ which is pretty generic but I think works.
  5. Add something personal. I added a scrap of lined paper and wrote a message to my Dad telling him how much he means to me. You may want to write about something that’s happening in the picture, or a personal message if it’s a gift.
