Make Your Black Scrapbook Pages POP

Black Pages are always a safety net.  Always.

You can add just the photos to them with little embellishing, and they really pop.

The key to making them pop is to add a touch of color, pulling from the colors in the photos.

In this spread, Beth shows us which colors she pulled from her photos, and incorporated them into the 2 page spread by creating chevrons to enhance.



Mat four photos with white cardstock, adhering to the left side.

Group three photos together and mat with one large sheet white cardstock on the right side.

Cut one 2″x 12″ strip from each of the four different patterned papers, then cut each strip into 2″ squares.


Fold each square in half diagonally and then cut a triangle from the centre on the fold making each one the same size by using the first one as a pattern for the others.


Cut the frame on the fold line and arrange these pieces in a chevron pattern on the page.


Add embellishments with foam squares and tape runner.
