My husband and I just purchased our first home. I wanted to make a small album about what it looked like when we moved in, what we do to it and the result. However, I can't find many home related scrapbook stickers or paper. Any suggestions?
I found scrapbook paper that looked just like graph paper - it was 6 years but I've seen it recently.
I drew out each room in my house - two graph squares to each room of the house so I had a drawing of each room. I also did walls in each room with window sizes, etc. Even placement of windows and doors in each room.
Then I put pictures and samples of paint and fabrics in the book. It's a functional scrapbook as I like to call it.
When we bought new carpet - they could get the measurements for each room for my scrapbook. When we went out to buy blinds for the house I grabbed my scrapbook.
When I wanted a bulletin board for my office I grabbed my scrapbook so I could see how much distance is between each part of the wall and the windows or doors.
Even when we've gone for shelves or furniture - the book goes!
But looking through it, with all the pictures in it, its a pretty scrapbook.
The only paper I used was the graph paper.
I just bought a beautiful die cut that says, "We've Got the Keys" and the paper that goes with it has house keys all over it. I really have found quite a bit of stuff for new stuff for homes. I found several cardstock die cuts that say, "Moving Day" or "Unpacking boxes" which are really cool. Found a few things that say "Home Sweet Home" and one that is an overlay shaped like a house with openings for pictures.
PM me and I'll send you links to find some of this stuff although I don't know right off where to find graph paper in 12 x 12 scrapbook pages. I just seem to stumble across that occasionally.
I would just go with colors that feel "homey" to you, it doesn't have to be a specific home collection. Then I would just get stickers and embellies for each room or tool ones if your fixing stuff up, etc.
