My Scrapbook Keepsakes

I LOVE Scrapbook!

Hello Everyone!
Finally! I can feel the spring, wohoo! One of my favorite past time aside from blogging and watching movies is the scrapbooking. I like to transform and be creative with our photos, especially after I have my two kids. I did free digital scrapbooking for awhile and create some cute digiscrap but not long after I had my second baby the digiscrap site was sold. No more free editing software and free embellishment. I'm little dissapointed and later on I lost my interest. So, that's how this Scrapbook Keepsakes come to place. I started to put everything together in a scrapbook album for both kids. I love the idea of turning those photo into memories. Sometimes, I just love to look  their albums and read every notes that I made and it makes me smile. How do you preserve your kids special moments? Do you do scrapbook as well? The good thing about scrapbook are you'll able to express your creativity and its FUN. I've seen my kids growing up so fast and then when I looked up their albums it just amazing how everything change..hehehe.
To get you started, below are the materials you'll need to make a very simple scrapbook. All of the stickers and embellishment are included on the album, but you can totally buy more sticker if you want to and be as creative as you are. It is also one simple way to organize your kiddies photos and mementos.:)


 First lets start with the PAPER or PHOTO ALBUM- I think you can buy this stuff on craft store or any store at baby section. I got both photo album from my baby shower.:)
Stickers/ Embellishment- All of my stickers are included on the photo scrapbook, but I've seen a lot of sticker on sale at craft area. Check them out.
PHOTOS- This the most important thing in doing scrapbook. Organize all the photos from birth to present. Then put stickers or notes on the side of the photos make it look personalized and perfect.
Tickets, Events, and ALL  FIRSTS- After 12 months. I only take photos on special occasion like birthdays, Christmas and such. I also keep all the important events that happen that year like airline tickets, movie theater tickets. I also keep their first haircuts, first birthday pictures, everything FIRST is photograph :)

 
So simple and neatly organized right? To all Mommies out there, turn that simple photo into a fun moments. I'm sure that your kids will love and appreciate it later on. I hope you get inspired making your own scrapbook.  Be creative, Be you! My kids are bugging me to go outside and play bubbles (hahaha) I bet its FUN. Until next crafty moments everyone. Keep browsing on my blog and I hope you get inspired...:) 

P.S- I appreciate all my readers, visitor and friends who keep coming back on my blog. It means a lot to me. Thank you!:)

  3. So nice, sis. I bet your kids would be really happy to see your scrapbooks when they grow up. They'd appreciate it for sure. I love doing scrapbooks, too. I can't remember how many times I made some when I was younger. I also made a scrapbook for hubby (then bf). I have actually started one for my son when he was born pero matagal tagal ko na rin di natutuloy, huhu. Will make time for that again soon. :-)

  6. I used to do a lot of "scrapbooking" in a way because I really loved putting details in my album... but, I haven't been doing this since 2005...when things became digital!

    I remember my whole Japan trip for the Friendship Program was blogged to 12 blogposts because of my detailed albums, where I used the typewriter then to explain the place and the activity!

    Now, my album is in Facebook...I just hope FB doesn't close!

    2. I do want to learn digital scrapbooking but I haven't gotten around to this! What program do you use for this? I guess I don't go to scrapbooking as much is because my son is already 17 years old and definitely, I have less pictures with him. BUT, I might just do a scrapbook for the CMZ B.R.A. Campaign Project!

    3. I do real scrapbook album for this one. I do digiscrap booking 3 years ago but not as much as I used too. The site was sold to other company and not offering freebies anymore. :)

  7. I didn't have the diligence to make a scrapbook from scratch but I like making a digital photobook. It's not as creative but it is a quick way to preserve memories too. Also, it's the current trend since it's very rare that we make a hard copy of photos nowadays.
