How to Scrapbook Black and White Photos with the Graphic 45 Farmhouse Collection

For my own black and white photo, I wanted to choose an older, more rustic pattern paper style to match my photo. This Graphic-45-Farmhouse-12x12 Patterns and Solid Pad fit those needs perfectly. Lots of solids and prints that matched my photo’s old time charm.

First, I chose this lovely Graphic 45 pattern for my background page. An aged gingham, perfect for any vintage layout.

For my next step, I added the top sticker strip to this layout. It is was from the Graphic 45 Farmhouse Sticker Sheets. I love when companies make these matching embellishments for their paper packs. It makes crafting your project fun and easy. These farmhouse designs are perfect for any black and white photo.

Next, I added a strip to the top of my layout.

Then, I added another sticker strip onto some of the matching paper on the bottom of my layout. Super easy!

After, I then started to mount my photo onto some green and brown cardstock. Then, I flipped it over and added foam tape to the back of it so that it gave my layout some depth.

I Blame The Dog!

You’ll notice that the strips look a little frayed in places. That design element was added by the new puppy my grandson received. She decided she liked the taste of foam tape.

Next Steps

My next couple of steps, were to mount my black and white photo to the Graphic 45 page and add some other embellishments.

(I should have added the black corner mounts to my photo mat before gluing it on my paper. I unfortunately forgot to do this so I had to pry up my pieces and add them after the fact. )

Also, I used accent pieces that came from the Graphic45-Farmhouse Ephemera and Journaling Cards These cards are double sided and are fun to use. Like the other pieces, they fit into my black and white photo theme perfectly. This photo only shows a portion of the styles included in the Farmhouse package.

I used die cut pieces from the Graphic 45-Farmhouse Die cut Assortment I adored these die cuts. They came in a variety of great shapes, and patterns.

Next, I added more fun stickers and cards from the Graphic 45 Farmhouse collection to my black and white photo layout. These die cuts are so fun and easy to use!

Finally, I finished off my black and white layout I added brads, a twine bow, and some gems. I loved how it turned out! I hope you use this example to get your own black and white photos out of storage and in to your scrapbook albums.
