Scrapbook Layout: New Home

New Home Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerNew Home Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerNew Home Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerNew Home Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerThe Story: When Mr. P and I grew out of the shoebox we moved into the year before and upgraded to a bigger place.

Inspiration: This layout that was posted on Studio Calico.  I used it pretty verbatim.

This Layout Brought to You by Google: The picture of the apartment complex on the left is a screenshot from Google Street View.  I didn’t take any pictures of it before we moved away.  The map in the center is a screenshot from Google Maps.  The picture on the right is my own – it shows our new patio and plants we put in.

Of Note: I love using map pins!  I used a large one for the headline and a teeny tiny one on the map.  I printed the text directly on my page using my wide-format printer.  I added our new address at the bottom.

Hindsight: I may be several years behind in scrapbooking (hello 2005!), but hindsight is great sometimes:  the text documents how we found out we got this place the same weekend we got engaged.  It also documents that we lived there when we got married and Mr. P carried me over the threshold when we got home from our honeymoon.  Ah, memories!

  1. Nat….I really DO love the minimalist and simplicity of your layouts. It’s also very “ME” which is why I am so drawn to them! Thanks for the inspiration!

    I love the use of the “mobile device” indicator….it’s a no brainer, but something I never thought to do.

    I am beginning my scrapbook for Europe and I SO will use that idea!

    Thanks again and keep on scrappin’

  2. Just love the “You are here” cell pointer thingy!! And I love the fact that the city/state looks like a signature 🙂 Very nice …

    • I love the map pins! I want to keep using them but not overuse them. The city/state at the bottom is actually the entire address but I blocked out part of it for privacy reasons. Pacifico is a great font!

      • What, you don’t want the entire world having your address?? Shocked, shocked I say 😉
