Scrapbooking is more than gathering photos and writing captions, it's an art form that reflects your personal style. Use the tips in the following list to help develop and polish your unique scrapbooking style:

  • Take a look at different scrapbooking styles to see which ones you like. You can experiment with many different styles to come up with a look that's all your own.

  • Finding predominant colors in your photographs for a particular album can help you choose the colors you want to use — usually a three-color palette that unifies your layouts.

  • Creating a pleasing layout means imagining that a tic-tac-toe grid is covering your page. Position your most important items over the focal points where the grid lines intersect. That's where your eyes naturally focus.
