Scrap Booking - My Style!

Those of you who follow me on twitter will know what I have been doing today :) Yes I have gone through my new lot of magazines and torn out pages of interest! This is a great way to save space and have an amazing reference system! I have been doing this for years and decided it was time for a revamp! I have ended up with 7 sections.

I opted for a large lever arch file and plastic wallet inserts with dividers. This works great as I can freely move pages around. I hated that I had to alter everything when it was in a display book. So... today I spent a good 4 hours on this, might I add before but I had a seperate file for everything so I already had made up pages!

The seven sections are: Make up, hair, celebs, accessories, fashion, photography and interiors.
Here is my first page.. I love this look, promo from BB!


Here's a page from my make upsection... You know I love the golds, browns and bronzes! However my other pages are VERY vibrant :) I have lots of inspiration for future looks, keep following to find out :)


Hair... aww I do love the deep brown hair colour, I keep looking at these images convincing myself that going darker is going to be great?! :)


Fashion!!!! ooooo Orange, coral... I love to wear this colour as previously mentioned in an earlier blog post.


I now introduce you to probably my favourite image in the whole file, I love this whole ensemble, I love green and the delicasy of this design! I also love her hair and natural make up! OOooo musn't forget the accessories - GORGEOUS!

Lastly a page from interiors... I would just love a rustic chic room like this!


Do you do this? What will be in your sections? I have two sections left that are still empty...... any suggestions? I also have a wedding scrapbook that I did before I got married, I will show you that in a later more thought out post! I hope you all had a good bank holiday Monday! X

love it! its so funny i just organized all my mags i have almost 50 that i do not have the heart to chuck......might just do a scrapbook of my own! well done, i really like yours!

Sarah said...

I have been doiong this since I was younger and I am so glad I am not alone!! You folder looks so pretty and organised :)

I like to get rid of my magazines once I have read them and this also saves SO much space plus it is much easier if you have to move. I keep them in seperate display books for each subject and I update them as my tastes change.

I think I have about 10. They pretty much cover the same subjects as yourself and one main inspiration book that contains everything from ideas for work outfits to exercise programs!

MissGlamTan said...

bubblegarm said...

Zoella. said...

I do something very similar. I had to when i was doing my textiles & photography a levels. Althoough mine isnt as neat and have ribbon and buttons and everything else falling out of it. I bet that is really satisfying doing that. You make me want to update mine now!!:) x

bubblegarm said...

@Zoella ooo buttons and ribbons :) how cute, maybe I should personalise my cover :) and yes I do feel pleased :) xx

happy1234 said...

Is your pics just stuck on paper? Please show us some more!!!! I think your make-up looks are a fab idea too. Think I need to copy some of these ideas!! You don't mind do you ? X

bubblegarm said...

Princess~Sparkles said...

Fantastic idea! I would so love to do this but i get bored so easily hehe but it would be fab to keep up with the trends & make-up looks/tutorials x

Catanya said...

It looks beautiful!!!! And so organized!
I have tried this so many times before but I always find problems when trying to choose which side of the page was worthy storing sometimes... Sometimes I had an amazing makeup article on the one side and on the other, a beautiful picture for the fashion category...So I always give up :-(

beth said...

this is a great idea! i will give it a try when my summer holdays start!! thankyou x

Lola said...

wow i've been meaning to start something like this for a long time and you've given me to the inspiration and motivation to start one! i already scrapbook my personal photos, do you do one of those as well? xx

macosophy said...

this is so genious! i've done some scrapbooking in my time but i've never thought of the binder! i have so many magazines laying around, i better get to business. i'm quite excited to get back into this, it used to be my therapy. thanks so much for sharing!

ladyb said...

love the way your organized this not suprised tho . . . you are super organized :) I'm working on a wedding on at the moment - and i just loving having these lil inspiration images around.

I have a few of these on my inspiration wall plus other stuff. do you have one of those ?

latina8184 said...

i love how organized yours is!! i have about 3 huge piles of mags i've been collecting for months that I need to go through! i have 2 scrapbooks: one for fashion and one for makeup looks. :)

lovedesignerskin said...

That looks like fun! I always feel like chucking out my mags is such a waste... boo.


Btw, Heya! I'm a new follower, you are GORGEOUS! xxx

Jenny9119999 said...

Great idea!! I might try this.

Make Up Crunch said...

I think your hair looks really pretty with its current shade, it is really warm, dark hair can look soooo harsh even with lovely dark skin like yours, just look at Katie Price! xx

Make Up Crunch said...

BTW, the picture of the room is not dissimilar to my front room, I'll take a photo and email it to you.

Rebecca said...

This is fantastic!

I have tonnes of cuttings, soooooo many, but yet to do anything with them. Seeing this post has totally made me want to get them all sorted. I think it's going to be my little project over summer :) Would love to see your wedding one!

bubblegarm said...

I'm so glad you all enjoyed this post as I was reluctant to put it up :) I'm so glad I have inspired you to do the same, it's really enjoyable and rewarding :) I will put my wedding scrapbook on here soon. xx

@Jo lucky you :) cant wait for the e mail! x

LottieB said...

Fellow scrapbooker present here too! I have one for make up, hair and fashion.....I really can't wait to see the wedding one :) x Thanks for this post! x

you should use those plastic slips instead, so the magazine pages stay in a good condition for longer, and they'll be waterproof! also, those plastic slips have holes on the side already so you can easily put them into your binder :)
