Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Posts Tagged ‘scrapbooking

Remember this Valentine’s Day and the ones you love by making a scrapbook of all the fond memories you have of this special day. This is a time when couples look for new, exciting ways to express their love for one another. It’s a time to cherish and remember for many years to come. One of the best ways to keep these memories alive is with a Valentine’s Day scrapbook.

They’re easy and fun to make. All you need to do is visit your local craft store and pick up a few supplies. If you prefer not to start from scratch you can even pick up a scrapbook kit that has everything you need to get started. Once you have all of your supplies ready, it’s time to put together a memory you’ll cherish forever.

Things to include in your Valentine’s Day scrapbook:

  • Photos
  • Cards
  • Love letters
  • Keepsakes

Arrange these items throughout the pages of the scrapbook and write a passage about the special meaning it had for you. It makes it more interesting and easier to find what you’re looking for later if you give each section or page a title. Decorate the page with embellishments, ribbons, bows, lace and so forth that helps capture the mood of the memory. Be creative and experiment a little to come up with unique ways of displaying your memories.

The contents of the Valentine’s Day scrapbook can include memories from anyone who made this day special for you such as, children, parents, siblings, friends and so forth. However, you may want to dedicate a few pages especially for the special someone in your life. Creating your Valentine’s Day scrapbook is a tradition you can continue annually so you can look back on your life and all the happy memories you had throughout the years.

Before the days of digital photos, we saw a great deal of photo albums lined with images of those birthday parties, anniversaries, school plays and other special events. Today, we don’t have that as much with so many things done digitally. However, there is just something extra special about being able to hold an image that incites a memory in your hand. This is where scrapbooking comes in.

With scrapbooking, we can bring back the old handheld memories of an event or activity with photos, captions and other fun stuff. You can even use your digital photos and either print them from your home computer or have them printed off in a store or photography center. Digital photography even gives you the ability to edit and crop and more before you print them so your photos will always look their best.

Some examples of when you might preserve your memories with a scrapbook are:

  • Birthdays
  • Weddings
  • Graduations
  • School ceremonies
  • Anniversaries
  • Family trips and vacations
  • School events or kid activities
  • Sports’ events
  • Family get-togethers
  • Holidays
  • Babies, toddlers and child milestones
  • Anything special to your family

Now that you know more about how to preserve your memories with scrapbooking, all you need to do is begin gathering the right supplies to help you do your scrapbooking the right way. You can then keep these special memories in your family for many years to come. It can be great fun to sit around together and look at all of the old scrapbooks.

We sometimes talk about scrapbooking here on the blog and I’ve found a wonderful video about how to add titles to scrapbooks.

Scrapbooking has been around for many years and it continues to be one of the best craft projects available for kids and adults even today. However, technology now provides a more innovated way to make a scrapbook and it’s called digital scrapbooking. With this method you’ll be putting everything on your computer instead of on paper. It offers many more advantages than the traditional way of making a scrapbook and a few of these are listed below:

  • You can be more creative and even make your own paper using different colors and designs.
  • You can edit and enhance your photos.
  • Some types of software will allow you to turn photos into cartoon drawings or add a tint to any black and white photo.
  • You have the ability to add any words or phrases to your pictures using a variety of fonts and styles.
  • You can enlarge photos or make them smaller.
  • Add texture and other fun things to your scrapbook to give it personality.
  • Pages can be printed out so you can physically put together a scrapbook anytime you want to. However, if you plan to print it out yourself, then you need to make sure that you use the right size to match your printer.
  • After saving your scrapbook on your computer, you’ll always have a copy of it to look at or for future references.
  • You can continue to add to it as often as you like, you won’t run out of room.

As you can see, there are many advantages to digital scrapbooking that you can enjoy. It may take a little time to catch onto all the creative things you can do with digital scrapbooking but once you do, you might not want to stop. It’s a fun and exciting way to make a scrapbook.
