KISS – Scrapping

May 14, 2010

I have told you before that I was once a scrapbooker.  I liked the creative process, but it was time-consuming and expensive.  After Edward, I decided to cut back on my scrapping and move to an easier system (which I blogged about here).

By and large, that is my system.  However, there are a few major, yearly events that warrant special attention in my mind…Halloween, Christmas and Family Day.  For these, I do a full-blown scrapbook page.  The idea is that when Edward is 18 he will have one scrapbook for each of these yearly occurences.  But, the pages are a lot of work.  It seems wasteful to have them linger in a scrapbook on a shelf for only occasional viewing.  I have a solution…

Because of where these hang in our house, it was impossible to get a picture of all 3, but trust me – Halloween is up there above Christmas hanging on the wall.  I found these 12×12 frames at a local scrapbook store.  I bought one for each of the yearly events and hung them one on top of the other.  Now, I scrap each event and we get to enjoy the memories every time we walk past them.  When the next Halloween or Christmas or Family Day roles around, I take last year’s page out of the frame, put it in the album and replace it with the new version.  Easy as can be!

    Another great idea!! My scrapbook ideas are still in my head, and will never make it to the page. This just may be the answer I need for family occasions, trips, etc. Good job again, girl!

    Great idea! You’ll have lots of embarrassing photos of him for when he brings his fiancee home in 25 to 30 years… 😛

    Another great idea. I’ll try to get the retirement lady working on something like this when she visits in July…… ready.
