Memorable memories with Scrapbooking
Have you noticed that human being get sad very easily? It is a part of our culture to hold on to things that have absolutely no value most of the time. You must have someone in your family that never, ever seems to go anywhere without their beloved camera to catch a picture anytime they see fit because they want to remember the occasion. Welcome to the real world. We are a bunch of beings stuck with our memories of the past and what better way to help use remember than pictures?
However, what do we do with all the pictures that we have and hold on so dearly to? We forget them in a dark corner of the room, stuffed in a box that is probably accumulating dust. Then you get pictures that are very good that we like to show off to anyone who cares to see it. A frame is usually where these photos are placed. The never ending question is what to do with the rest of them? We should as much as possible keep only the things that are really important because if we only have important stuff it becomes regular stuff.
Well, today is your lucky day because I have a magnificent suggestion for you and it is called scrapbooking. This is a good way to keep your souvenirs the way that they were supposed to be in the first place: memorable.
When you start creating a creative memory album, not only do you build a photo album, you keep your memories and protect them as well. You see there are so many ideas that pop in your head when your album is created that it cannot even be considered a photo album anymore. There is more than one style of scrapbooking. You will agree that when you mix things up like this, it makes thing much more fascinating. When you think about it, you know how much fun it is to share old stories and doing a scrapbook will help you keep those memories alive and share them with others.
The way it is normally with people is that we grab as much thing, hold on to it as long as we can until we can no longer stand having them and finally look at what’s in the box. When we finally find out what there is in the memory box, you wonder why in the world did I cut that old news article anyways. This however can all change when you see things in a photo album. Just to put a few stickers here and there or writing a story above or below the picture will make a huge difference. But surely you are not the only living artist in your family. Ask around in your family and you may be surprised at who may say what a good idea! So, unless there is a house fire where you store your albums, you can leave your treasure as an heirloom.
Doing an album is so easy once you start. Besides with the continuing competition in the scrap booking world, you will surely find a book of hints if you really feel you need help.
