Creating a Holiday Scrapbook
Throughout the year we have both religious holidays and also secular holidays. I remember as a kid our family always spent the fourth of July with some friends of my parents. I have very fond memories of this family and actually remember their home and some of the various years we spent with them.
Depending on how many photos you take, you can either create a few small 6x6 albums, one for each holiday, or you can create one large 12x12 album and call it “Holiday’s of (fill in year)”.
I have found many stickers, diecuts and even pre-made kits for every holiday. I love to add these items to my holiday scrapbooks. I also love to color theme holiday books, such as red, white and blue for the fourth of July, or orange and brown for both Thanksgiving and Halloween.
If you buy invitations or receive an invitation to a holiday get together, save the invitation for your scrapbook.
I also love to put recipes into the holiday albums. Many families have family recipes they serve only for specific holidays. Capture those in your scrapbook pages and share them for generations to come.
Of course, people make the celebration. Take plenty of photos of the people attending the celebration. Take both group shots and also individual shots. Take photos of the buffet table before everyone eats.
If the holiday is a gift giving holiday, or gift giving celebration, save a little bit of the wrapping paper and ribbon to add to your scrapbook.
Today, preserving memories is as simple as attaching photos and memorabilia to a scrapbook page.
