The art of scrapbooking dates as far back as to the sixteenth century and has become increasingly popular in recent years. Scrapbooking can be defined as the act of someone gathering different types or memorabilia, including, photos, notes, letters, poems and even trinkets and then compiling these objects in the form of a scrapbook. There are several reasons why scrapbooking is so popular. Firstly, it serves as a pleasant reminder of past good times and then it’s also an entertaining and relaxing hobby. Finally, it is quite affordable making it accessible to just about anybody.
The first idea is a baby keepsake book, these make an excellent gift for expectant mothers or for newborn babies. Even better, if you are having a baby yourself or have just given birth, you can create a baby keepsake book to jot down all your feelings and the wide range of emotions on the lead up to the birth and there after. Add clippings of their hair and hand/foot prints to give it that unique personal touch.
It’s a special time for all especially yourself, so ask your family and friends to write down some of their own thoughts and feelings. By adding pictures you can create something of a time capsule that you can flick through in the years ahead. As your little baby grows up, you can start to add other events to it; such as their first day at kindergarten or pictures of them with their very first pet.
The second idea are keepsake books for the prom. Whether it be for yourself or son and daughter, prom is a special time for all and is somewhat of a passage into adulthood for us Americans. We all look back fondly on our own prom night and think about how exciting it was. A journal or album with pictures of yourself, your date and the friends you made will give you something that will always be special for the rest of your life. Have your friends write down their well wishes and ask them to write down a special moment the two of you shared.
The third idea is a relationship album. Having just met someone special, it’s an exciting time in your life. You can write about how you feel towards your significant other, the dates you two go on and express how it’s meant to feel. Imagine the fun when it comes to your first or fiftieth anniversary as you look back on how your relationship started out. Your partner is special and more importantly so is your relationship. Consider creating a keepsake album that will hold a special place in both your hearts.
Now that you have read my ideas, it’s time to use them or come up with some ideas of your own. Whether keepsake books are for yourself or others, they’re a gift that are bound to become cherished by all those who have them
