Do any of you ladies scrapbook?? I do every now and then and im wanting to make one of me and my marine...either of when i first met him until now and keep adding to it or should i make one of the trips we have taken and all that while hes in the military...im oopen to suggestions and ideas!
Ya'll want to know mine and my mom's secret to awesome scrapbooks? Stealing. We go around looking at other people's pictures of their scrapbook pages online and steal their ideas and adapt them to fit our own pictures. It may not be you're original idea, but it totally works, and it's still some of your creativity b/c obviously you had to adapt it to fit your pictures and your life events.
I have a scrapbook of our first 2 1/2 years, and never did another one. But I buy stuff. DF hates going to Hobby Lobby, I go crazy at the sticker section. I get most of my stuff from Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Target $1 section or Joann's, and even ebay. Ebay have some pretty good stuff. I'll try to upload some pics.
I've gotten pretty into it recently. It's something I do to relax, wind down, and kind of get away when I need to. I save so many little things just for the purpose of scrapbooking. Like when we take trips and we get a brochure from somewhere or a map I'll save those along with admission tickets to museums and such. I also have saved the cards that came with flowers he's sent me, movie stubs, etc. You can get tons of ideas online. Make use of what you've got and get inspiration online. For instance, if you want to put embellishments on the pages, you could do something like this: trace his dog tags onto cardstock or paper of your choice and handwrite or type his name inside of them. Then use a yellow ribbon or something to make the chain. Be creative and have fun! Michaels, Target, and Walmart sell tons of supplies.
This soounds like a great idea!! I think I'm gonna start one I know for sure I'm gonna make a page for each of our home towns and a picture of us there.
I use scrapbooking materials to decorate my care packages- but I really would like to scrapbook for my boyfriend.
Any idea where to shop bsides Micheals or JoAnns- theyre just so expensive.
