Getting A Lot of Scrapbooking Done

Hello friends! Can you believe it is the last day of March? I feel like I have accomplished a lot of the last couple of months and I am hoping that April is another month filled with getting things done. I have a lot of hobbies and not enough hours in the day to do all that I want to do. So, I work on what I can when I can. Today I want to share some of the scrapbooking I have done.

Memory Album

First up is a little memory album that I have tried to finish for several years. The pages have been almost finished but adding photos and journaling has been very hard for me. It is an album of someone that I miss dearly and long to talk to often. The last few months I have been wanting to talk to this person every day. So, I decided to sit down and see if I could finish the album. And I did. It took a lot of tears, a lot of remembering and a lot of emotions, but it is finished. I added photos, journaling and some embellishments and I am happy that I was able to get this finished. It was very therapeutic, too.

Next up is a Recipe book. I made one for each of my boys and have been wanting to make one for myself for the last 2 years.

Simple Stories Recipe Album

This was a kit put out by Simple Stories that I picked up at a local scrapbook store.

Cute Recipe pages

This book is filled with pages of recipe cards and pages to add lots of photos, too.

There are lots of pages with pockets, too. So, adding handwritten recipes from friends and family can be slid right into a pocket. The perfect way to save a sample of a loved one’s handwriting ❤

This is just a sample of the pages in this book. I can’t wait to start adding my recipes and getting them all in one place.

Another project I worked on was a Christmas album.

Christmas Album

This album kit was also put out by Simple Stories. But with Shannon’s (from the Scrapbook Tree) spin on it, she takes is from plain and simple to fun and sparkly.

It is amazing how a little doodling with a black marker and adding some gems and glitter can change the look of a plain page.

A place for sweet memories

This album took a lot of time to do with all of the cutting, distressing, doodling and adding glitter and glue to one side of the pages. Then allowing them to dry so that I could add glitter, glue and gems to the opposite sides of the pages. But I am so happy with the results.

Christmas pages

This album has room for at least 94 photos! There may be places to add a few more photos that I didn’t count. It will be so fun adding Christmas memories to this album. Not sure if I will save this for the next Christmas that my family is all together or add photos from a Christmas past. Either way, it will be an awesome keepsake.

I have also scrapbooked some 12 x 12 pages, but I didn’t take any photos of them. I think I made some pretty good progress with my scrapbook hobby. So how many hobbies do you have, and do you have trouble juggling them all?

  2. those books are great! I am glad you were able to finish the memory book, I am sure it was hard, but now it will be a treasure for you going forward.

    How many hobbies/crafts do I do? Oh, golly, so many! But as you know, I primarily focus on the fiber arts. But there are supplies for scrapbooking, cardmaking, sewing, cross stitch, beading, and more in my craft room!
