Creating a scrapbook layout or “scrapping” can seem intimidating for a beginner. You know what paper you like, what embellishments you want, what photo to print, but putting it all together can give you a creative block.

Where to begin with your scrapbook page? Where do you place things? Does it need more? How much is too much?

The beauty of scrapbooking is that it is entirely up to you how you want it to look. For beginner scrapbookers, it may be helpful to start with a simple layout. From there you can figure out if you like simpler layouts or extravagant layouts or a little bit of both.

Here are 11 simple (but still stunning) scrapbook layouts to help inspire you.
