Scrapbooking is a really fun way to keepsake your memories and tell amazing stories with your pictures.

Devote a special page to your sweetheart, or include the family pets and funny stories about them. You don't have to have a lot of money to come up with creative designs.

In fact, most of the items you will need are probably sitting in your house already! Below you will discover some unique ideas that you can implement to make your scrapbook amazing.


This free scrapbooking idea is a great way to dress up your pages. Letters are a must in the scrapbook, and instead of using fancy and expensive purchased letters, why not use something we all have lying around? Here are some great ideas of themes and where to get some beautiful lettering!

Family Vacation

For this free scrapbooking idea, let's say you want to do a page on your family vacation. You've got all of the amazing pictures ready to go, now you just need lettering to make headings and whatever else you want. Why not take some letters out of a magazine? With all of the different kinds of script found in magazines, you can find all kinds of great letters. Just cut and paste!


For some great letters for a holiday, like Halloween, use things that are saved from the events. For example, you can get some letters from your kids’ Halloween treat bags. You can find spooky looking letters on packages that come from your children's Halloween costumes, makeup packages, and other things that feature letters. This is a great free scrapbooking idea that will make your pages look amazing.


Another great free scrapbooking idea is to make borders out of things that you already have lying around the house. This is a great way to use up leftover materials. If you have extra material from a project that you've completed, try using that for your borders. Below are some great examples of things that can be used for your scrapbooking needs.


If you've got some extra wallpaper that is really pretty, you can cut this and use it for your borders. This is an especially good free scrapbooking idea if you have nursery wallpaper or border left over. You can use the cute wallpaper for borders on your children's pictures or you could cut out any characters and use those on the pages as well.

Contact Paper

You can use contact paper the same way as wallpaper for your scrapbook borders. This is a great free scrapbooking idea if you've got some really cute contact paper left over. You can cut this into your border, and it's really great because most contact paper is already sticky!
