10 Beautiful Scrapbooking Ideas for Couples
1. Make a Romantic Scrapbook Calendar Embellishment to Commemorate Your First Date
2. Take Screenshots of Special Text Messages and Display Them
Let's face it, most ''love letters'' are sent via text message or Messenger these days! I made a surprisingly simple couple scrapbook layout and it started by taking a screenshot of a conversation on Messenger.
What wasn't easy, was finding the ''love letters'' among the hundreds of daily routine messages such as, ''Can you bring milk home?''
Simply print out your messages, cut them out, and display them in flipbook style by securing them with washi tape at the top. If you happen to run out of washi tape, take a ribbon or a strip of decorative paper and adhere it to the top of your mini flipbook.
NOTE: Although the ones in the photograph below have been mounted on patterned card stock, ideally you would want them displayed in a clear sleeve to protect them from both the tape and fingerprints.

3.Display Your Love Notes in Mini-Envelopes
All those pre-modern technology love notes floating around an old shoebox in the cupboard will look fantastic displayed in mini-envelopes within the pages of your anniversary scrapbook.
One of my favorite anniversary scrapbook ideas is choosing the best of my ''special notes''. And many of them are written on post-it notes (not very romantic, I know), so I made up these cute little DIY 1-inch square envelopes using a scanned printout of a page from the book, ''Alice in Wonderland.''
Feel free to get creative and use whatever paper or fabric scraps you have for the envelopes. If you are lucky enough to have a proper hand-written love letter, just make your envelopes bigger to suit!
If you still have your one-year anniversary cards or notes that came with bouquets of flowers given to you when he was still your boyfriend, don't just keep them! Add them to your album.
4. Mark Special Moments in Your Life on a Map
You can create this scrapping project to be as simple or as fancy as you like. I have taken a no-fuss approach to document my favorite memories or life events on the map with a simple love-heart craft punch and a to-the-point explanation of the moment on the page.
''We met'', ''we married'' and ''we lived'' are included on this map but the possibilities are endless.
Don't forget to add your first date with your boyfriend or girlfriend in your album, your first house, or even the place where your stunning bridal shower took place!

6. Count Down The Seconds, Hours, or Days Since You First Met
This idea for couples is super simple and a beautiful way to highlight your time together. Younger couples may like to count the seconds or hours but older couples may run out of room and need to count the days, months and years ever since your wedding or your first date.
As you're creating, make sure to include the date of calculation so it makes sense when you flip through your beautiful DIY anniversary scrapbook photos at a later date. This is such a beautiful idea for someone celebrating a milestone especially when you count you to that one-year anniversary!
7. Show How Much You Love Your Partner With a Heart Pie Chart
This is a fun tongue-in-cheek romantic wedding album idea for couples that allows you to also include some of your favorite things.
Feel free to include the dog, sleeping in, or even wine! The love-heart pie chart is an individual and one of those awesome anniversary scrapbook ideas in which you can create with whatever you have on hand.
8. Celebrate a Long-Distance Relationship With a Map
This idea is perfect for those in a long-distance relationship or for those that started their romance long-distance! It's a simple idea and wonderfully individual to each couple.
Just print off or get hold of a map that shows where you both live and mark the two points in your own creative way, connecting them with a line or embellishments of some sort.
You may want to include notes or on the distance between the two points and how you would usually visit each other, whether by a road trip or flying.
9. Immortalize ''Your Song'' in The Pages of Your Scrapbook
10. Commemorate Your Travels as a Couple
This romantic album idea for couples is ideal for commemorating your travels together. Print out or get hold of either a map of your country or the world and with a copy (not the original) of a photograph from your trip, cut the photo to match the shape of the destination visited.
Simply stick the photograph cut out on top of the destination on the map and be as creative as you like with the remainder of the layout. I find adding a short letter about your traveling days or fun information can help refresh your eventful memories together.
