Looking for Scrapbook Ideas?



When we look through our pictures to get scrapbook ideas for our next project, we often get caught in the chronological vortex. We decide to create a scrapbook album that walks through our life from beginning to end.

Why not get a little creative?

Try looking at your pictures from a theme standpoint. You might find the best scrapbook ideas are centered around themes like those listed below. Scrapbooks can be designed to relate to either a specific theme or an on-going theme.

Custom Scrapbook Design


Specific theme scrapbooks are limited in scope. They have a set number of pages and the theme of the book usually carries throughout. Examples would be: Wedding Albums, Vacation Albums, and Heritage Albums .

On-going theme scrapbooks are nearly unlimited in scope. After each new event/year a new page is added until the book is full. Then, often, a new book is started. Examples include albums that record a child's development, celebrate a yearly family vacation, or preserve yearly Christmas traditions.
