Scrapbook Themes

There are so many things going on in your life that could easily become a scrapbook.

Everyone has seen the traditional scrapbooks. Pages of photos, colourful papers, and beautiful embellishments. Why not try to expand your horizons. Scrapbook everything in your life, your mind, and your heart.

I recently read a few pages from an expectant mother who scrapbooked the changes and excitement of pregnancy. She hardly used any pictures, just journaling, a few images, and embellishments, and that was it.

While it was relatively simple, what a keepsake it would be for her child.

Most of my scrapbooks are daily life events: hikes, trips, friends, nature, etc. Things that I take pictures of to remember.

Why not leave your pictures for a while and explore other areas of scrapbooking?

Scrapbook your goals, your hopes, or make a scrapbook with a message to give to someone else.

These scrapbooks don't have to be 12 x 12, why not use up some of those tags that you have lying around and make a tiny tag book?

This doesn't have to be a project that you show everyone, as they come through the door. Not all scrapbooks have to be on display for everyone to see.

Scrapbooking can be therapeutic, so why not create an album that allows you a chance for release?

There are many ways to capture a moment, a memory, or even a feeling. Why not do your best to treasure everything about yourself, the good, the bad, and the photogenic?
