I’ve been working on a super-big super-secret project with scrapbook paper. (It’s a great way to add pattern and color to wall art, home decor, picture frames, etc. – see my scrapbook paper DIYs and Pinterest board for ideas!) While researching scrapbook paper patterns, I realized many of today’s textile trends can be found in these papers.
So with some Mod Podge and a few minutes of time, you could turn picture frames, trays, coasters, book covers, so many objects into trendy textile patterns!
Etsy is a great place to find digital scrapbook papers with coordinating colors and patterns …
This is a different color than you usually see for ikat. A pretty in pink ikat scrapbook paper pack from VNdigitalart Etsy shop:
This is the Tru-Su Blue Suzani scrapbook paper pack from TaajDigital’s Etsy shop:
A set of Moroccan scrapbook paper patterns in rich colors from MyPixelPrint Etsy Shop:
There’s even geometric tribal-inspired scrapbook paper, like these coordinating patterns available at Grepic Etsy shop:
Yes there are even Indian block print scrapbook papers! Like these from Digigraphics Etsy shop:
This is just a tiny sample of patterns available. You can Google or search these terms on Etsy and you will find more colors and designs.
If you haven’t used digital scrapbook paper before, you get a digital file you can download. Then you print the papers either at home on an inkjet printer or at a print and copy center. Fed Ex Office and office supply stores like Staples, OfficeMax and Office Depot have copy centers. You can submit your file online to print, or you can take files to the store on a flash drive.
