2021: Title and End Pages
While I am working on scrapbook pages for a yearly album, I store them in 12×12 boxes. When all of the pages are done, I count them and find naturally breaking points to figure out how many albums I would need for the year. In 2020, since we were all in lockdown, I only needed one album. But in 2021, when I decided I had to get out and do stuff I ended up needing three albums!
I find matching albums, and then work to create matching Title and Ending pages to help the albums work together as a theme. Below are the six pages that I made for the 2021 albums:
The albums I selected were seafoam blue, partially because I made two trips to the ocean during this year. I used the same light blue paper for the background on all six pages, and the same slightly darker blue as the torn edge border on all of the title pages. I used this same blue to cut out the title blocks for the title pages, and a dark blue for the contour frame for each title block.
I used the same font across all 3 title blocks, but changed the images to reflect what themes were in that album: Volume 1 dealt with Covid and the Spring Break trip to Florida, Volume 2 shared road trips to North Carolina and Texas, and Volume 3 contains road trips within Oklahoma.
The ending pages used left over cutouts from these title blocks as well as the Album Cover Titles (which you can see in the video below), to add some interest to those pages, but were purposefully left simple.
Recently, for most of my scrapbook creations I have also created videos that show me putting them together and talking about the experiences as well as the techniques that I am using. So please enjoy watching this spread being created and assembled:
