Basic Decorative Papers
These decorative papers are a bit flashier than the subtle patterns featured above but still neutral enough to work with a wide variety of scrapbook pages. Try printing on vellum or textured cardstock for a unique look.
If you're making a scrapbook layout about your favorite hobby, activity-based papers are a great way to support the theme of your page. They can be a bit overpowering, however, so it's best to use them as borders or photo frames instead of background paper.
Seasonal Scrapbook Papers
Papers with seasonal holiday themes are a must-have addition to any scrapbooker's supply stash. These printable designs are a frugal way to accent your favorite holiday photos. They also work well for making handmade greeting cards to send to friends and family.
Pretty Paper on Demand
Finding free scrapbook paper to print can save you lots of time, and it can even be less expensive than buying patterned paper. It's quite convenient to be able to print out the paper you want as you need it. Don't forget to save any scraps from your printed papers for use later as small scrapbook frames, trim, or borders.
