If you attend a scrapbooking party or a demonstration, there’s a good chance that you’ll get to see some inspiring vintage scrapbook layouts.   To get a jumpstart on creating your own vintage scrapbook, here are some steps to help you get started.

Choose your photos

When vintage scrapbooking, either choose photos that are truly vintage, meaning the old black and white photos, or transform the look of your current photos to appear vintage.

You can also get a cool app like “instagram” for your iphone, this way you can take photos and then apply vintage filters to make them look old in a matter of seconds.  I like to change my photos to sepia or black and white to get that vintage style look.

If you opt to use current photos, include props that will give the appearance of authenticity.  For example, if you’re taking a photo of your young children then include antique toys rather than today’s legos or baby dolls.  Keep the background simple in the photo as well.  Try not to include modern day items such as a flat screen, a computer or a microwave (kinda kills the vintage vibe

Select vintage paper

You’ll find a good assortment of vintage scrapbook backgrounds at your craft store.  For instance, you might choose a black and white background that has a pair of vintage white gloves as the main focal point or a background with an antique car.

Another great option is to use sample wallpaper.  Quite often when a store gets in new stock, they get rid of their old sample wallpaper books.  Talk with the manager and you may be able to get the book for free!  Although these pages are smaller than the standard 12×12 scrapbooking page, you can still use a page as a portion of your background.  A lot of the pages have a vintage appeal and will add texture to your scrapbook page.

Be very selective in regards to color as you as you design your vintage scrapbook layouts.  Think in terms of old fashioned and not bright and bold.  Adding a little color as an accent is fine, but don’t let a color overpower the page.  The majority of the page should be neutral, brown, gray or green.

If you enjoy digital scrapbooking, you can find a wide assortment of vintage scrapbook pages.  You just need to scan your photos, choose your embellishments, and then download.
