People often think of albums as being a clean and crisp way to display scrapbooking projects, but more than anything an album should be a self-expression. While traditional and mini albums may limit you to certain styles and ideas, a scrap-journal begs you to take chances with your creativity, embrace free expression of your photos and journaling, and put many rules on the backburner. Find a way to best express yourself through these diverse scrap-journaling ideas.


Choose a favorite (or antique) chapter book for your larger scrap-journaling projects. Remove about 1/3 of the pages randomly throughout the book. Adhere pages together in groups of three to create a cardstock-like surface. Add gesso, spray ink, and embellishments to your journaling.


While design is still an important factor in scrap-journaling, remember that this book is a representation of you as a person and design principles are more flexible in this medium. Add embellishments or sentiments that particularly speak to you, and don't worry about mixing themes.
