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 inspiration to draw from the season.
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.
