Interesting Scrapbook Ideas For Different Events You Need To See
Do you love to scrapbook memorable events? I know I do! Christmas, Easter, birthdays, graduations, memorable travel experiences and even retirement ... these are all events that fit nicely within the pages of a scrapbook or work well as a potential scrapbooking gift.
Scrapbook and Journal Your Experience of The Coronavirus Pandemic
Let's face it, the year 2020 didn't go as expected. The world was forever changed by Covid-19 and I think it's a great idea to document your personal experiences of this major event.
Start by writing a list of how the pandemic affected you. As an example, my list includes thoughts such as:
♥ We homeschooled for a term ... turns out teaching is not my calling ♥ Toilet paper was a precious commodity ♥ The kids taught Nanna how to Facetime
Find your best mask-wearing photograph and get creative with your layout to feature beautiful writing that journals your thoughts and feelings about the pandemic. I personally found this therapeutic! Making these scrapbook pages definitely help me cope with the unfortunate situation we are in.

Document Your Favorite Christmas Traditions in a Scrapbook
Woohoo Christmas! We all take some time off, I eat way too much and the kids are on their best behavior due to our Elf on the shelf, Scout. It's my favorite time of year!
Rather than focus on a particular photograph (or ten), why not place the focus and scrapbook your top three favourite Christmas traditions. My top three include Christmas lunch at mum's house, watching the kids excitedly search for our elf, Scout every morning for the month of December to see what he got up to overnight and handing out an early Christmas present on Christmas Eve.
A retirement scrapbook is not only a great way to document the beginning of the next stage of your life, but can also make a beautiful gift for another person to celebrate their retirement.
Although retiring is a life event we all look forward to, it's also an event that features mixed emotions and as a result, coming up with ideas for a retirement scrapbook can be a little tricky. Make sure to keep your page positive!
Building on the concept of a ''to do'' list from our previous post on three things your retirement scrapbook must include, why not create a scrapbook page featuring a new ''to do'' list written on post-it notes. The list should include all of those wonderful things we wish to do more of pre-retirement such as ''enjoy the freedom'', ''travel more'', ''horse riding on the beach", or even a leisure goal such as ''motorcycle the Great Ocean Road''. That would make an interesting scrapbook to look back to!
Show Mum or Dad How Much You Care With a Mothers Day or Fathers Day Scrapbook Page
I love the idea of showing mum or dad how much you appreciate them with a scrapbook page. Using song lyrics, a quote from mum or dad themselves, a list of adjectives that describes the person or even a list of things you appreciate about them, display your thoughts in a beautiful layout designed to be displayed. The strip journal technique in our Mother's day scrapbook idea lends itself well to this project!
This is also a great project to get the kids involved and interested in scrapbooking.
First Birthday Scrapbooking Ideas
Let's get creative with the number one! Cut out an oversized number one for your page and fit a number of photographs from the day inside the number itself. For the background, include various milestones which could be a great trip down memory lane decades from now such as ''favourite foods'' and ''I love ... ''. Obviously, for this scrapbook, you can be as creative with the embellishments as you wish!
Create a modern-day graduation scrapbook page with an Instagram theme. Choose six to eight photographs from the day or even the final year of school, and display them in grid format on the page.
Don't forget to include hashtags to tell the story such as #graduation2020 #graduationselfie or even an ode to Dr Suess (who funnily enough, wasn't actually a doctor) with #ohtheplacesyoullgo.
Show off two to three of your cutest easter photographs with easter egg-shaped frames in a strip down one side of your scrapbook page and get creative with an Easter bunny silhouette featuring a cut-out.
This technique involves laying down a beautiful background, (either handpainted or pretty printed paper) and sticking a black or dark coloured simple silhouette Easter bunny on top. To achieve the cut-out look within the silhouette, before you stick the bunny down, draw and cut out some simple flower shapes at the bottom of the bunny so that when you stick it down, the beautiful background comes through the cut out.
Scrapbook Ideas for Proposal
Celebrate a proposal within the pages of your scrapbook with a timeline theme that runs vertically down the page, beginning with the day you met and ending on words such as ''He/She/I said YES!''
A photo of the actual proposal would be amazing but if you don't have one, a close up photograph of the ring and a couple's photograph is just perfect for your scrapbook.
