    • Enhance an Acrylic Scrapbook Album Cover

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Erin fashioned an acrylic page into her album's cover, placing a sticker and rub-on title in areas that would complement the page that lies underneath when the album is closed. She also added metal-rim tags to the right-hand page, which highlight the star, heart, and dots designs printed on the acrylic page.

    • Use Multiple Materials for Scrapbook Album Pages

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Erin purchased chipboard, felt, and acrylic pages with shaped edges to create texture throughout her album. To get a similar look, die-cut pages from similar materials.

    • Make one Scrapbook Album Page Stand Out

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Erin used a clip to keep scrapbooking supplies in place on her felt page. She kept the right-hand page simple to let her left-hand journaling and photo stand out. A simple, chipboard heart gives stark contrast to the acrylic album page.

    • Use Stickers for Quick and Easy Album Journaling

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      For quick journaling, Erin embellished patterned-paper covered pages with simple phrase stickers. Minimal accents let Erin's photo and color scheme pop on this mini scrapbook page.

      Erin filled her mini scrapbook pages with large, expressive photos. Bright patterned paper, stickers, and chipboard accents give the album a carefree summer vacation look.

    • Create a Distressed Look on Scrapbook Album Pages

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Erin inked or sanded all scrapbook page edges to give her album a distressed, cohesive feel. This finishing touch adds style and covers and trimming mistakes.
