Welcome to Part 2 of Creating a Heritage Scrap Album. Great to have you here for more. 🙂
So you’ve gathered some photos, you’ve collected some extra details and information and now you want to bring it altogether and turn it into an Album. Yay!!
Where to from here?
For me, I find it helps to use photos that are all similar in shading and colour. A great deal of your older photos will be in black & white, sepia or similar. Photos from the 1960’s and later will more often than not be in colour. The great news is, there’s really no hard and fast rule on using ‘heritage’ shaded Papers or Card.
If you are working with colour pictures, pick one or two colours from your photos and feature these colours in your Page background. Otherwise, the sky is the limit.
Below are some images of different ways you can do a Page Layout to inspire you with the next step.

Some of these Layouts may be originally done for other reasons; if they inspire you, and you feel they’d look good with your selection of photos, then go for it! There are no hard and fast rules where making your own Album is concerned.
However you choose to create your layouts, the main thing to remember is you are making memories to share with your loved ones for years and generations to come. Have fun with the process.
Select your Album and feel free to decorate it however you feel works. To make your treasured photos last the generations to come, ensure your Pockets, Sleeves, Papers, Cardstock and Embellisments are Acid Free. Why? So they don’t corrupt and break down your photos. This is why it’s important to store any of the documents in Acid Free Pockets.
There you go…that’s my guide to Creating a Heritage Scrap Album. I hope you now feel more confident and empowered to go ahead and create your own Album. Remember, have fun with it, and enjoy the stories you’re uncovering.
Till Next Time!! xx
