Scrapbooking 101

Step 1: Think of your content

What is it that you are looking to fill your pages with? With great photo scrapbook ideas, you can get started on creating the perfect personalised scrapbook album, which has your photos on both the outside and inside. Some people love documenting pregnancies, their first year of marriage, baby's first year and summer holidays. Once you have your inspiration, start gathering your scraps. These can include anything from photos and love letters to tickets and post-it notes.

Step 2: Decide how you want to organise your scrapbook

We suggest thinking about how you want the final project to look, and who it is for. If this is a project just to fulfil your inner creative, then you can be as scrappy as you like, but if it's to be presented at a special event, you might want a little structure. 

Step 3: Choose your size and layout

Choose from small, medium and large scrapbooks - the sizes are below.

Step 4: Create a design for the front and back cover

Once you have chosen your size, you can then create your design for the front and back. Again, think about:

  • Who the scrapbook is for
  • What event or occasion you want to preserve
  • Whether you want to include text
  • If you want an elegant or a more rustic look

With our design interface, you can add as many photos as you want to the front and back cover, or scale it back and just print one powerful photo to best showcase your theme. You can also add text to your scrapbook cover, perfect to note the date or occasion. 

Step 5: Fill your scrapbook and make memories

The fun part! Start collecting little mementoes from days out and events that you want to remember in years to come. Even memories from a chilled day in the park can be preserved by picking a flower that you were sitting next to. Scribble the date, who you were with and what you were doing for a creative display of your memories.

Make a Collage

If you can’t decide on which photo to use, you can upload multiple images and create a photo collage. This can be done using one of our pre-set montage templates, or you can create your own entirely from scratch. It’s super easy to do and the possibilities are endless.

How to add your collage to your product

Step 1 – Click the start design button & select your product options.

Step 2 – Go to the ‘Images & Text Tools’ tab, click the ‘add images/Text’ button on your product & ‘Select Images to Upload’ or use the Facebook/Instagram tabs.

Step 3 – Choose the images you want to use for your collage, upload & select them from the uploaded photos list.

Step 4 – Click ‘Create montage’ & select your collage style.

Step 5 – Add the collage to your design.

Hints and Tips

  • The more images you add to your collage the smaller each image will be. Fewer images will be larger and give you more clarity and detail.
  • The more people in an image, the less detail there will be. If you have 10 images of a group of five friends, each person will be smaller than if you have 10 images of just one person.
  • Try to make sure that the longest side of each image is around 10 centimetres. There is a handy ruler built into the design tool to help you with this.
  • Smaller products will not be able to fit as many images as larger ones will.

Step-by-step

The hardback cover of your personalised scrapbook is bound in Monroe Satin, which has been printed by our technicians using an up-to-date digital printing technique. This permanently bonds the fibres and the eco-friendly ink giving your outstanding print quality with no surface texture or residue. Craftsmen then use traditional bookbinding methods to fill your personalised scrapbook album with elegant, Italian ivory paper. 

Everything is fully checked for quality to ensure it meets our high standards before being sent out to you.

Montage maker

The Monroe satin we use for the hardback covers is a woven fabric, so we recommend using images and designs with bolder detailing or larger photos to ensure a sharp finish. If you'd like to create a photo collage on the front and back, simply upload and select several photos then choose one of our ready-made montage styles or have fun arranging the photos yourself. Just like the potential of your scrapbooking ideas, what you can print to personalise the covers is limitless. The covers have metal corner protectors, however, this shouldn't infringe on your design.
