Beyond the Scrapbook Photo Crafts - New ideas added!
April 24, 2009 at 1:06 PM

Hello all you creative ladies!

I've been searching for inspiration for miscellanious photo crafts and memorobilia & keepsake crafts that goes beyond the scrapbook. I thought I'd get this thread started so we have a place to share all those great photo craft ideas since mom's always seem to have quite a surplus of photo's around... and we always love to show off our loved ones in fun creative ways.

So please post your photo's and photo craft ideas and/or links to instructions here, I'll be adding some of my favorite ideas I've found to get us started.

Happy crafting & scrapping!

    This is the photo craft seen in the current little icon photo for our group, the craft is intended to be a gift wrap project but it's so cute I wouldn't want to take it apart, I think with some easy alterations, it could be make into a keepsake box or a cute storage box. Inctructions can be found here:

    I love these ideas of creating canvas creations with photo's and embellishments.

    Some of the ideas below came from the website:

    This concept was intended for a wedding but the idea can be adapted for the home just as easily. Instructions are found at:

    Here's just a few more ideas that I've come accross that unfortunately I don't have links or instructions for but with most creative people, sometimes all we need is a picture, so hopefully these ideas will spark your imagination and creativity. Can't wait to see all your ideas!

    Happy Photo Snappin!

     This is a response to the FAMILY picture craft.  Where would you buy the letters to make it?  I would love to do one of these for my mom and dad but with it saying grandkids.  You ladies are such creative mommas.

    In response to 4EverAMommy: I have found block letters at Michaels & even at Walmart in the craft section and many other craft stores... only problem is they are not mounted on stands as seen in the above pic's but most of the block letters will stand on their own or you can wood glue either wood blocks to the back of the letter for more stability in propping them up or wood stands attached to the bottom. 

    Best wishes & happy crafting!

    Those are great ideas. I love the "family" one. I'd like to do one for father's day. It'll just be "DAD", so it shouldn't be too difficult.
