    • Find the Right Album

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Because this scrapbook album spans four years of high-school events, Melissa Inman chose a sturdy, extradeep album for maximum storage.

       

      SOURCES: Album: Scrapworks. Patterned paper: Chatterbox. Stickers: American Crafts. Brads: Junkitz. Paper flowers: Making Memories. Memorabilia keeper: Show it All.

    • Make It Easy

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Let divided page protectors break the work into manageable portions. In this album made for a friend, Melissa filled the title page protector with a pretty collection of high school memories.

    • Organize Your Photos

      Design by Melissa Inman

      When planning your pages, look to the photos. Melissa sorted hers by event and made a quick outline to determine the number of spreads and the type of page protectors she would use. You may need to resize or crop your shots to get them all in.

    • Consider a Pocket Structure

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Select two to three types of scrapbook page protectors to vary the look of the pages while still maintaining unity throughout the album. Melissa selected styles with four, five, and six blocks along with regular 12x12" page protectors.

    • Choose Coordinating Papers

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Select papers and a few versatile embellishments that will complement your photos. Sticking with one manufacturer's line helps keep everything cohesive.

    • Select Flat Embellishments

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Add dimension with your accents, but remember that the album needs to be able to close.

    • Convert Photos to Black-And-White

      Design by Melissa Inman

      If certain photos clash with your scheme, convert them to black-and-white.

    • Make a Full Scrapbook Page

      Design by Melissa Inman

      To prevent the look from becoming too modular, Melissa made one page of each spread a full 12x12" layout.

    • Assemble Journaling Blocks

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Because this album was a gift, Melissa included blank journaling cards that can be slipped in and out of the protectors, making it easy for the recipient to fill in her own thoughts.

      Vary When Necessary

      Design by Melissa Inman

      Place a title vertically when you've got an extralong one to fit. For consistency, Melissa used the same stickers as she did for the horizontal titles.

      Box Up Memorabilia

      Design by Melissa Inman

      After she completed the pages, Melissa added this shadow box in the back as a handy catchall for bulky memorabilia.
