DIY Scrapbook/Photo Album

Happy Monday everyone.

Today I have this easy DIY Scrapbook/Photo Album.

This project came about by complete accident after my printer started throwing out page after page of this same printed paper!!!

After the 18th page, I wiped the sweat from my face and had some slight relief that my ink cartridges hadn’t run out!

Thankfully I love this print which is from the April 2018 issue of Making Cards Magazine.

6-page Scrapbook album.

To make this project you will need…

8 pieces of 9 x 8 white card for your main pages.

Score 7 of these pages at 1″ along the 9″ side.

13 sheets of 7.3/4 x 7.3/4 pattern paper, as previously mentioned these papers are part of the free downloadable papers from Making Cards magazine. There are 161 papers available on the CD Rom or Link, I used the number 095 for the front page, 094 for all the main scrapbooking pages and 096 for the very back page.

7 sheets of 7.7/8 x 8.3/4 vellum. I showed a huge bumper pack I purchased from a charity shop. If any of you recognise these vellum featured in my tutorial can use please let me know so I can add the link to this blog post. 🙂

Laminator and pouches.

Hole punch.


A sentiment to decorate your front page mine is the “Laugh With Me” stamp set by Fiskars.

Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made it.
