Scrapbook Page Story Using a Timeline

A graphic approach is a great way to show relationships on a scrapbook page. My layout is about three generations of weddings: my parents, my husband and I, our son and his wife. Each is represented in a time line format using three panels organized by month and year.

I chose colors that were popular during the time periods from my patterned paper stash and cut the month titles with my Silhouette using fonts representative of each era. (Remachine Script, Chopin Script, Great Vibes from dafont.com) The years were added using my considerable stash of Thickers. The final result accentuates the passage of time and gives each photo an appropriate setting.

Have you ever used a timeline approach in your scrapping? You can see what the rest of the Get It Scrapped! Creative Team did in the full article.

  1. What a fantastic layout - three generations of weddings!! I did several timeline layouts during the Hello Story workshop and have a list of some others I want to create, too.

  2. This is just super, love the repetitions!

  3. Love this idea! I like how you used different fonts and paper colors but tied everything together with flair and little people.

  4. This is just such a fabulous idea!!
    And I loved how you used the fonts and the design. Just a great page!
