Sharing Scrapbooking Examples are essential when creating unique family memories of the past.
Well, what prompted my first scrapbooking experience? Below I plan on giving you specific examples of scrapbooking examples that I have created during the last few years.
My son’s college graduation from Texas A&M University in 2007 was within 6 months and I wanted to give him something unique for his graduation. I thought what better way to showcase his senior year and the special times he had experienced as an Aggie. I included photos, extensive journaling the following in his scrapbook or memory album.
Please see below how I used photos, labels, ribbons, journaling, embellishments, and die cuts to create these pages.
Pages made with personal photos, unique card stock colorful papers, journaling using archival multicolored specialized pen colors, clear page protectors, ribbons, labels, and various Texas A&M labels.
Interview: I asked him recently to send me pictures of his scrapbook and then asked him, was it worth my time to create his scrapbook! He said that he wanted to just sit and review each page, really brought back good memories!
just texted me , “Mom, without your talents and skills, I would not be able to
remember all of the moments of my college years. I am so thankful that
you were able to capture so much!” Very much worth your time!
Then ended our conversation with “We are the Aggies, the Aggies are
We!” He still has the college traditions instilled in him and renewed through
this unique scrapbook visit!
that time, I have completed many scrapbooks, and I usually have a theme
that I follow...
I continue to consider creating other special scrapbooks and sharing with other family members. I have thoughts of creating pages for my husband’s military career.
I have several that I have "stuff" saved including one for my daughter when she was a student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. Just need to find time to "reduce clutter by scrapbooking!"
So I surprised her with a phone call to tell her to get her bags packed and we left for a visit to the Hill Country of Texas and various scenic locations in South Texas including Austin, San Antonio and various small towns.
This was a special trip and all along the trip, I made special photos of my Mom including riding the gondolas in San Antonio.
Then for Christmas that year, I surprised her with a scrapbook of our memories of the trip. She often will look at these pictures now and remember those special times together!

I mentioned to my daughter over the weekend that I must begin the boys 1st year baby book; as well as, the Baby Books that we never finished when they were first born! Where does the time go?
As you can see, I have the supplies, the embellishments, the books, everything that is needed to get started! Yes, reduce clutter-scrapbook has become a way of life! Find the time to create and capture family memories that you will enjoy for years to come.
Now to decide if we want to do the traditional scrapbook or to the impressive evolution into digital image form are referred to as "digital scrapbooks" or "computer scrapbooks.
Oh, I know what the answer is....I will have to use my stock of scrapping papers, embellishments and pictures to create scrapbooks for the twins! I have too much invested in "scrapping" products not to use them!
So I will continue to reduce clutter by Scrapbooking! How about you?
