Scrapbooking is a hobby that has been done for some time now. No body knows when it first started but what we know is that people use scrapbooking to make memories of events they don’t want to forget. Back in the day’s people used simple black and white for their scrapbook pages but now textured and colored pages are used to create beautiful pages. To make the pages even more unique creative embellishments and themed stickers are used.
There are lots of themes you can choose in making your own scrapbook page, the theme you choose can be a family event that you want to make memories of or a school event you had with your class mates.
Creative family themes:
Family scrapbooks are mostly done by a lot of families as a way to preserve particular events that may have happened. Some events can be children’s parties, family gatherings or any other family special event. When creating your family scrapbook you can divide it into sections for that particular event, like there will be a section for birthdays, seasons, vacations and reunions.
If you find that your album will be too large for a particular project then cut down the themes to a specific child. The theme can be for your first child’s spoken words, first walk and first drawing. Don’t forget to put their first birthdays and include the friends that where there as well. You can also add baby booties to the themed scrapbook.
Once your child grows older you can create a separate theme that will include things like certificates, sports, awards and graduations. Include pictures of their school friends and teachers that you know are close to him/her.
Creative individual themes:
Individual scrapbook themes are a wonderful way to preserving your memories. They are perfect gifts and make wonderful small albums. Individual scrapbooks include things like pregnancy, a child’s birth, promotions, marriage, graduations and any other wonderful occasions.
Making these albums can be easily done and less expensive if you use a “brag book’ style album. To make the scrapbook more tangible you can include rubber charms and coordinating stickers. A nice example is a wedding scrapbook, for this you can put items like newspaper announcements, wedding invitations, present covers etc. And to embellish the album you can use pressed flowers, paper doilies, gift wrapping papers and laces. Just make sure the colors match with the theme of the scrapbook.
Don’t forget to take good care of your albums so they last a lifetime. To do this you can use a hard cover for the album and put it in a safe place.
