You can preserve your families photo heritage for many generations
to cherish and enjoy. Preserve your photo archives. Create your own family cropping station, with a little
organization and planning you can have an area where your family can spend time together being creative with
family photos. The more organized you are the less time it will take to create some fantastic memory albums.
When you file your photos in order of what you want to scrapbook first, one thing I like to do is write some
notes on a recipe card of the event. They are the perfect size to file in a photo box with your photos and
they help you remember the important information for journalizing later. But most of all have an important
family hobby that you can do together.
Scrapbooking is a great way to preserve your family heritage, have
something you've done as a family and something for your great grandchildren to cherish. Many generations
will love and cherish later what you've preserved today.
Scrapbooking is a safe way to preserve your photos, old and new.
To make sure your photos are going to be safe always look for the word's acid free and lignin free on your
supplies. Things that are not acid and lignin free keep away from your photos. For example every once in
awhile I will use old Christmas cards, there are so many cute ones that we hate to throw away. So I use them
on a page but keep them away from the photo itself.
Doing a Memory Album can heal our broken hearts that hurt for our
loved ones that have passed. To loose a child or a parent can sometimes be more hurt then we can bare. But to
do and have a Memory Album of that person will heal you and will keep their spirit with you. For those
that have lost a family member or a child know those albums may be a special keepsake, and what a
treasure that would be. We all have plenty of photos to scrapbook, our weddings, birthdays, baby books,
children's photos, pets, special friends and special occasions are just a few of the memories we'd like to
One of the most important things to scrapbook are not even photos
at all, they are those great report cards, those special little notes from our children, letters to Santa,
lost teeth. Everything that we cherish, what is and was a special part and time in our lives. Save these
moments, I guarantee you won't regret it and your family will treasure it.
When you are just getting started in scrapbooking try to remember
not to go over board, there are so many products available, and so many materials to use. Think before you
shop! Think about what pictures you are going to scrapbook this time try and keep focused on one or two
projects. Organize your photos and scrapbook the latest photos you have, as you go you can do some photos
from past occasions. If you try and think of all your old pictures it will become to over whelming for you.
Make this fun, not something else to stress about. Enjoy scrapbooking and let the creativity come to
