Scrapbooking: Ideas and Materials

by Teresa Carr

My church group meets the last Tuesday evening of each month. We all get together and make scrapbooks for different projects and occasions. I never thought I would like Scrapbooking, not only can it be habit-forming, but it improves on you color and design coordination. I like to share some ideas that I got from the group that can help your Scrapbooking craft.

Some ideas are using different types of occasion, keepsakes, and special projects named these:

    Heritage or genealogy
    Family Reunions
    Hobbies & Interests
    School events
    Church events
    Social events
    Historical events
    Special events
    Clubs or organizations
    Favorite recipe cookbooks
    Travels: I have one I did on “My Ireland Holiday”
    Baby Books
    Cards & Gifts
    Biography & Autobiography
    Favorite Bible scriptures & famous quotes
