Christmas Scrapbooking

Christmas scrapbooking holds a special place in our albums. Offering lots of special dreams and fond memories because there are so many themes to follow - beginning with the snowy weather and ending with the religious meaning of the season, there are plenty of scrapbooking ideas to draw from the season’s inspiration.

Some suggestions for your Christmas scrapbooking might include creating a special Christmas Idea scrapbooking project. This could enlist the help of all members of the family. For a special loved one far away, perhaps serving in the military or for an infirmed grandparent, a special gift such as a Christmas scrapbooking calendar with family pictures and a little journaling would be a great idea. Start early to insure that you are finished on time.

Another idea is to take head shots for each person in your family or each of your friends. Make an ornament from their head shot using colorful background papers, and a circle or ornament template. Cut and adhere the photos and baubles at different heights from the top of the page. Use realistic Christmas scrapbook tree paper across the title block for added effect. Add additional ornaments with favorite Christmas Scrapbook memories. This “Family Tree” idea and other Christmas ideas for scrapbooking will make your family album lots of fun to look at in later years.

A few more Christmas Idea scrapbooking techniques::

Save pieces of wrapping paper for picture backgrounds.

Use the ribbons from your Christmas gifts, tie bits and pieces along the spine of an album to decorate it.

Staple pieces of ribbon to the edges of the page or onto journaling.

Save colorful gift tags for embellishments.

Have the children write letters to Santa. Save them or scan and reduce them to use as embellishments for your holiday pages.

Thanksgiving Scrapbooking Ideas

Thanksgiving scrapbooking ideas provides you with a great opportunity to show all the things your family is thankful for at this time of year.

Thanksgiving scrapbooking ideas can include a selection of poems to accompany the various photos and memorabilia that you want to have in the scrapbook.

Many children complete sheets at school to tell what they are thankful for, and a family scrapbook of Thanksgiving is a great way to start off any family scrapbook.

There are usually school concerts and displays at this time, and you can use the photos you have collected over the years and cut them in various shapes and sizes to be the focal point of each page or to embellish the pages.

Using Thanksgiving scrapbooking ideas you have to include pictures of the Thanksgiving dinner in your with all the trimmings and decorations.

If one person usually says the prayer of thanks and blessing before the meal, you can have this prayer written in the scrapbook.

Some Scrapbooking ideas you can use:

Pictures when preparing the meal.

Pictures when carving the turkey.

Pictures of family and friends present at the meal.

New members of the family – babies or in-laws.

The family watching football game together.

Children playing.

Other Thanksgiving scrapbooking ideas that you can include:

Family recipes that have always been used for the Thanksgiving Dinner.

Write out a program for the day including the Menu.

List of family members and friends present.

Games you had arranged to keep the children entertained, including pictures.

List of the things that you are thankful for.

List of things that those present were thankful for.

You can have those present at the Thanksgiving dinner write down what they are thankful for on a little strip of paper and sign it.

You can combine all these strips to make one page of the scrapbook, or scatter them throughout the scrapbook on pages where there are photos of the writer. This makes the scrapbook a one that truly represents what everyone is most thankful for.
