It’s good for the soul to be creative and one of my favourite creative processes is scrapbooking. I love scrapbooking as a craft, it is artistic and serves as a great purpose of memory keeping. In this post we are going to find out how to Scrapbook with Clipart.
Being at home means you may not have the necessary things to craft with on hand. What can you use to scrapbook at home with if you do not have any supplies? Using Clipart is a fantastic way of doing scrapbooking and the best thing about it is that it is resuable!
Scrapbooking with clipart is a wonderful way to bring crafts into your home and all you need is a printer and some paper.
Scrapbooking page using clipart
I downloaded this Fall Clipart to make this scrapbooking page. I tried to keep all the supplies used to things I had already in my home aside from a few letter stickers. Design Bundles has an amazing array of clipart pieces to use on scrapbooking pages. Thousands of images for you to design almost any page. In the Fall clipart set it had smaller elements as well as ready to print pages. All can be printed straight from your laptop.
I chose the size of the clipart I wanted for my page and printed out some of the patterned clipart paper to use for my tags. The black and white paper was hand drawn and painted as well as the multi media background.
How to print out your clipart in the right size?
After you have downloaded and saved your clipart you can arrange it to be printed using a variety of ways. I like to use Photoshop to arrange them in the size I would like on an A4 page. You could use Word, Pages or an online platform such as Canva to arrange them.
You can also print and cut clipart using a cutting machine such as a Cricut machine or a Silhouette machine. I chose to hand cut my images.

Scrapbooking page with topiary clipart
In my second layout the tree clipart was perfect to scrapbook with my Spain photos. I also added some Sunflower clipart. I printed the tree archway a big as I could on a an A4 piece of card. The smaller trees I arranged to print and fit around the photo.
I used a few sunflowers to decorate and brighten up my page.
