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
Hobbies & Interests
Clubs or organizations
Favorite recipe cookbooks
Travels: I have one I did on “My Ireland Holiday”
Cards & Gifts
Biography & Autobiography
Favorite Bible scriptures & famous quotes
Nature & Zoo Trips
Vacations: esp. At the Beach, Disney, Universal Studios, Holy Land Experience
Recycling old books
