I love the idea of scrapbooking! There are so many cute ways to frame photos and so many adorable stickers that can go with any theme. But you should notice that I said I like the idea of scrapbooking, not actually doing it. I will confess I’ve never actually made a scrapbook. I know it is pathetic, but I know that my book would end up looking like a kindergarten craft, not a beautiful creation I would ever want to show friends.
The bottom line is that I need help. Which is why I love this little book so much. A sweet friend gave this to me as part of a wedding shower gift.
This scrapbook is wonderful because all you have to do is add photos. Now that is my kind of scrapbooking! This is a great book because of how easy it is, but also because of the tradition that goes with it which my friend also told me about.
Each year I make a Christmas card that has a family photo. A great tradition is to keep one Christmas card from each year (or to take a family photo around Christmas) and place it in a pre-made scrapbook. It becomes a family album and it is so fun to see the changes every year.
Mark and I have had a significant change that is visible in each picture. The first year we had a wedding picture as well as a picture we took in Bethlehem. The second year a baby bump made an appearance in our card. The third year Elias was born and the fourth year Owen made his way into the picture.
What You Will Need:
- A pre-made scrapbook
- A new family picture each Christmas
