Scrapbooking…not just for photos August 31, 2006

Scrapbooks aren’t meant just for photos. Keep movie ticket stubs, concert ticket stubs, love letters from boys, children’s artwork, your favorite brand name clothes tags, a test with an A+ on it and many other items.

Today, we can still preserve our memories by adding these extra little things to our scrapbooks. I recommend making copies of everything. Unless the original paper is acid free, it will yellow and crumble with time. There are also archival sprays that may be helpful.  Include the original in your scrapbook, but also keep a copy.

So, what types of “extras” are fun to put into scrapbooks?

· Report Cards

· Essays from School

· Birthday Invitations

· Maps of Cities Visited

· College Brochures

· Greeting Cards

· Post Cards

· Decorative Napkins

· Place Cards from Table Settings

· Pressed Flowers

· Receipts & coasters from a Favorite Restaurant

· Play and Concert Programs

· Sporting Event Tickets and Programs

· Magazine and Newspaper Articles

· Old Drivers Licenses

· CD Covers

These items can be added to individual pages or they can be left intact and put into a sheet protector alongside photos of the events they represent.

There is no limit to the items you can put into your scrapbook. Extra items help to tell the overall story.
