Scrapbooking is always fun to do! It is an interesting craft that anyone can start on. You can have scrap books on your interests, favorite moments, pictures from your childhood days, news items that capture your attention or any such thing which you like or are passionate about.
Start off by choosing a nice layout for your scrapbook. Based on the idea you’ve taken up for your scrapbook, a suitable layout can be picked. For instance, if it is a scrapbook about the Christmas season, I would probably have a well crafted layout, with paper piercings and other decorative items stuck to it so that the scrap book looks decorative. I would then put in my favorite Christmas pictures, pages from my old diary where I had written about the first bicycle my dad got me for a Christmas and so on…
You could also add glitter or cut and paste some nice images on your scrapbook to enhance its look. If you’re planning to have a scrap book on news articles that affected you, you could probably go in for a simple layout with a dark background. One of my favorite colors is black. So I have a couple of them in that color. You can even add quotes and your thoughts in the scrap book.
These days, digital scrapbooks are quite popular and many have their scrapbooks online. There are many sites which offer this service for free and you also get to choose from a variety of layouts and themes available. Shown below is a page froma digital scrapbook. It has aclean layout and the pictures arranged in a desired fashion. Quite nice to browse through.
I am more of a paper and pen person, so I tend to prefer working with scissors, albums, card stock, colored papers and glue. Fishing out your old pictures, sticking them in your scrapbook and decorating it with color papers, glitter, or mini paper flowers and leaves is still fun!
To see the pages of your scrapbook after many years is an interesting travel to the past. A great way to cherish old memories!
