How to Scrapbook...


My favorite way to scrapbook
is by THEME ALONE.
For example, only scrapbook
"the big events" in life...
Christmas, birthdays, graduation, etc.
And when you do this, limit yourself
to only one or two pages...
no more than two 2-page layouts.
To stick to this way of scrapbooking,
pick only the BEST photos or
the photos that tell "the story."
It's easy to get overwhelmed with a ton of photos
and end up not scrapbooking at all.


Another great way to scrapbook is
by PHOTOS ONLY.
Choose ONE PHOTO ONLY per event
and scrapbook it!
Make it a work of art... a treasure...
and heirloom to be cherished.
That's what I've done with the photo seen here.
This is our Easter photo and
my journaling for our Easter is
on a decorated piece of paper
tucked behind the page which will
fit nicely into my page protector.
Then, when we want to reminisce and
chat about how our Easter celebration was
for this particular year,
all we have to do is pull out the paper and read.
It's like a "time capsule!"


Regardless of how you choose to
preserve your memories,
