Creating a scrapbook is a wonderful way to preserve and reflect over some of the most special moments in your life. One of the fantastic things about designing scrapbook pages is it will not only contain a picture but memorabilia from the event.
There are many important aspects to consider when thinking about your scrapbook ideas. This article gives you clear and simple guide of what you should think about when designing a page for a certain event.
Baby Scrapbooking Ideas
Having a baby is a very precious time and what better way to safeguard those precious memories than putting them in scrapbook pages. There are many scrapbook ideas to think about and most should be written down and a record made as and when they happen.
Some of the memorabilia you may want to add to the page are doctors’ appointment cards, photos of the nursery and the meaning of the baby’s name.
It is always a good idea to make notes of the baby’s first smile, first bath, the day your child took his or her first steps and said their first word. These are all important milestones so make a note and use them in your journaling.
You do not need to add hundreds of pictures. Just one or two will be enough as sometimes less is more. Try to find something that stands out, a funny face or a specific milestone or event that has been reached.
Wedding Scrapbooking Ideas
Because a wedding is usually a large affair you may want to dedicate a whole album to your wedding scrapbook ideas and have a page for the ceremony, a layout of before the event with the bride and groom getting ready, some pictures of the reception and not forgetting the honeymoon.
The journaling part could include where the bride and groom first met and when and how they became engaged. It is wise to save some memorabilia from the day itself such as place cards from the tables, confetti, napkins and wedding favors, these items are great for decorating your scrapbook pages and bringing all your scrapbook ideas together.
Pet Scrapbook Ideas
Many people class their pet as a member of the family so if this is the case it is important to include them when considering your scrapbook ideas. Use pictures of your pet being naughty, playing, doing tricks, eating and sleeping and accessorise the page accordingly by adding your thoughts about what was happening. You may also want to include information such as where you got your pet, how you decided to name your pet, what your pets’ favourite toy is and what you love about your pet.
The same rule applies to any scrapbooking ideas you have. First you need a picture and then you need to record your information, your thoughts and feelings and most of all you need to embellish the page with relevant material from the time in question.
