And gentlemen. Who don’t have kids. Okay, so it’s not the most inclusive title, but this has been stuck in my head all day.
Carrie of Rosalind Revival won one of our Vintage Book Scrapbooks from the giveaway at Alexandra Rae Designs and can’t decide what she wants to do with her book. So we told her we’d put up a bunch of great ideas for the scrappers out there who aren’t married and don’t have kids!
Whether it’s the vacation you took last week, the summer you spent in Europe after college, or the trip to the Grand Canyon you took with your grandparents when you were seven, you’re bound to have tons of photos from trips or vacations throughout your life.
I usually make a mini album of my trips and make one 12×12 page with my favorite photo(s) from the trip for the year’s main album.
I also don’t really worry about getting a trip scrapped right after it’s over. I’m planning on working on a Chicago 2007 trip mini album this August. (Try to write down a bunch of memories if you’re going to wait while the words are fresh, if you can).
I stole the big box of unorganized family photos from my mom and am still working on scanning them all in. For heritage photos, I scan and reprint so I don’t mess up the (borrowed) original.
Sometimes friendships are forever, sometimes they are not. Making friend profiles enables you to see how your friends have changed over time and will remind you of those you’ve lost touch with along the way in the future.
It’s also important to document relationships with family members.
I love the old photos of my grandparents and my mom! I love asking them about the memories that the photos stir up. I’ll also sometimes record stories they’ve told me.
You probably do and like some pretty cool stuff. You’ll want to remember how awesome you are!
You can also use scrapbooking to record accomplishments so that you can see how you’ve improved over time.
For a lot of singles, pets are practically kids. So why not give them the place in your scrapbooks they deserve?
Record places, still art, flowers, and landscapes. Scrapping these things gives you a great opportunity to get creative!
You go cool places. You do cool stuff. How was that movie you went to last Friday? Scrap art walks, girl’s night outs, study sessions, and favorite places to eat.
What traditions do you have? What are your favorite things about the seasons? What holidays do you celebrate? Scrap that awful sweater your mom gets you every year or your birthday goals.
Think of scrapbooks as prettier journals. Record your secrets, your job, your poems, your goals, or your style. Remember, scrapbooks can be as public or private as you want them to be.
