Scrapbook Page Designs Using Three Photos

For those of you who know me and my scrapbooking style, know I LOVE to scrap with multiple photos on a page. This is something I learned after going through a few of my first finished albums. As I was going through them I realized that my favorite things always ended up being the photographs. Sound familiar? The part I loved the most was either seeing how much my kids have changed, seeing seeing a certain “look” they have on their face and sometimes even finding things in the background, like an old car or furniture piece. So I started scrapping true to what I love… and I’m proud to say that I am 100% multi-photo scrapbooker. If you haven’t seen any of my layouts, I invite you to check out my personal layout gallery here.

Since I’ve started sharing my layouts in the galleries, I’ve noticed a common theme to the comments that I get. It goes something like this: “Krista, how are you able to scrap with so many photos?” Or “I wish I could be able to scrap with more photos on my page.” “Where should I start?” So I decided to tackle these comments… and with inspiration of course!! Today, we are going to focus on scrapbooking pages with 3 (THREE) Photos. I am going to show you some basic “design rules” that most layouts use (that most of you didn’t know that you knew). AND, you are going to have SO many options that you can take any of these basic ideas when creating your pages. Feel free to come back to this post any time. If you are going through your photo folders and find three photos to scrapbook, this post will be a great place to come back to again and again.

To start, I always find I start with the same step.
1) Start your layout with putting ALL of the photos you want to include.
(This way you be sure to see how they look together, and you will make it the priority on your page)
2) Come back here to find great inspiration on how you can scrap them.

Scrapbook Page Designs Using Three Photos
There are many different design ‘styles’ on how you can arrange your page.
Vertical, Horizontally, Stacked/Cluster, Scattered, OR 1Photo/2Photo Design
Take a look below to find a multitude of examples to show these different styles.

Design your Scrapbook Layouts Vertically

One easy way to arrange your photos is in a column style, with series of photographs all up in down in a line. You can keep them in a straight linear fashion, create something like a “photo booth strips, or stagger them around a bit for more interest.

Vertical – In a Circular Fashion
Who says the all of your vertical pictures have to be linear? Use circles to create your linear effect.

Design your Scrapbook Layouts Horizontally

This design is similar to the vertical design, but going the other way in a horizontal linear design. It is another easy way to arrange your photos. You can keep them in a straight in a linear row fashion, OR stagger and tilt them a bit some interest.

Design your Scrapbook Layouts in a Blocking Design

This is a fun one!! It requires a use of your rectangle or shape tool. You can ‘design’ a grid like or blocking pattern, and “clip” your photos to the design. Not know how to do this? See this tutorial here.

  • […] sure to check out this article, “Scrapbook Page Ideas for Using 3 Photos” for more ideas on scrapbooking 3 […]

  • Thank you for this helpful info. I really do struggle when I have more then 2 pictures and especially if it’s landscapes with people.

  • You are kidding, right? Three photos is not very many on a page!

    • HAHA!! For most, I think it is. If you look through most galleries, most layouts usually have 1 photo. But I’ll get there on future posts. For this first one, I chose to start with layouts with 3 Photos. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Love these new templates! I’m a squeeze-as-many-photos-to-a-page type of person. I’m anxiously awaiting your 4 and 5 photo templates too. In the meantime I think it will be great fun to mix and match these to get 6-9 photos to a page. 🙂 I’ve been a fan of Simply Yin templates for awhile and these will be so flexible! Thanks!

  • This is also a puzzle to me. I have scrapbooked for years and taught scrapbooking classes for several years as well. I am just now embracing the digital scrapping but I am amazed at how many pages are featured on many websites emphasizing the elements rather than the people. I am a photo gal myself. I love templates for saving time, but will always emphasize the people! Thanks for your beautiful work! I love that you are willing to share! 😉
