Scrapbooking Ideas For Gifts : Layouts With One Photo

I was over at creating keepsakes this morning and noticed a post on everyday escapes. There are some really beautiful layouts there that are really inspiring. (some included below).

It occurred to me that these would make wonderful scrapbooking gifts for people. Instead of a card (digital or otherwise), scrap a really special photo of the giftee, and frame it.

Scrapbooking Ideas For Gifts : Everyday Escapes

August Guest Designer Ronda Palazzari created this beautiful layout about a cherished evening – even a simple dinner can become a sweet escape when shared with the right person. Ronda’s use of the Crafter’s Workshop/Balzer Designs peacock feather template in the kit creates a sense of a fleeting moment.

Design Team Coordinator Melissa Elsner captures some of the ways she escapes – via her creativity, reading and being with friends. Her visual of three doors (Maya Road’s chipboard from the kit) with three different patterned papers reminds me that we need a variety of ways to feed our souls to feel renewed.

Diana Brodeur recently returned to sewing and loves the break her heart and mind get from the ‘mesmerizing hum’ of the machine. She used pinking shears, a lace-edge border punch and a measuring tape cut from one of the patterned papers in the kit to tell her story.
