  • Scrapbooking Ideas: How To Make Your Creations Special

    2010 - 03.12

    Scrapbooking is a great way to showcase not only one’s creativity, but also special memories. Flipping through the pages will reveal photographs and mementos that relieve the past. That’s why more and more people are getting hooked on this truly worthwhile pastime.

    If you wish to get started on it, you may drop by stores carrying arts and crafts supplies. The section devoted to scrapbooking will tell you how popular it has become. But it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to buy all those tools and materials. Your inventiveness will suffice in creating an album.

    Of course you can always go online to look for scrapbooking ideas. Or you can ask someone you know who’s into the hobby for tips and tricks. But all these are best used as inspiration to jumpstart your creativity. This is especially true if you haven’t found a great way yet to execute a page you’re intending to work on.

    An album may be solely about a particular moment. For instance, your family’s stay in Disneyland for an entire day sure enabled you to take so many snapshots. And you’re having a hard time selecting a few photos to put on a page or two. Then why not make a Disney scrapbook containing only all the fun pictures and keepsakes you’ve collated during the trip?

    Oftentimes, an album may contain different moments you wish to highlight, but makes up a shared theme. For instance, all the family tours in a single year. So the first few pages may be about a Hawaiian beach resort escapade. Then the other pages may have photos of everyone with a giro ski helmet on in the Alps. Other pages may focus on snapshots taken at popular historical sites.

    What ever you think is important and everyone will have fun reminiscing about can be placed in a scrapbook. If receiving a cool black sport watch is truly unforgettable to your son, then it’s worthy of an album page. Try to embellish the page with items that has something to do with the incident. Make photo and page borders out of the gift wrapper. You may also include that tiny handbook of the wristwatch.

    Wherever you go, bring a small container with you for gathering materials you can use. For example, a weekend will be spent by the family at a beach resort. Think ahead what you can use to decorate scrapbook pages dedicated to the weekend trip. You may pick up flat shells. You may buy postcards or small souvenirs at local shops there. You may even collect sand and rocks, and make the pages come to life!

    Remember to rely a lot on your creativity. The more of your personality you put into creating an album, the more special it becomes. What you can use in decorating the pages is limited practically only by your imagination.
