Scrapbooking – New York and Med Cruise
24th November 2015
Last summer I shared with you the scrapbook/photo album I made for my mum for her birthday. You can find that post here.
I felt so inspired after making this gift that I decided I would get into a habit of printing off my photographs regularly and putting them into a blank scrapbook.
Today I thought I would share with you the two scrapbooks I made this year. The first is from my trip to New York back in April, and the second is from the Mediterranean cruise that Tyrone and I went on in June.
I buy my scrapbooks and photo corners from Paperchase because I know they’re good quality. I prefer using black or brown paper scrapbooks as they help the photos to stand out more.
I’m not that creative when it comes to scrapbooking, and really these are more like photo albums with extra details. However, I find sticking photos in using photo corners strangely therapeutic. I made these scrapbooks when I was unemployed which was a very stressful time in my life, and it felt so good to look back at these trips even if they were rather recent.
Tyrone told me he really appreciated me making these albums for us so that in the future we can look back at them and reminisce. When I go home for Christmas my mum and I are planning on sorting out all of her photos, which includes photos of when myself and my brothers were children. There are thousands of pictures to organise but, being the organisation freak I am, I can’t wait!
My New York photo album features tickets from the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty, as well flight tickets and a few leaflets.
My Mediterranean cruise one also features flight tickets as well as our cruise cards (for getting on and off the ship) and the daily newsletter that we received in our cabin each day, which contains all the details of the ports we called at.
Do you make scrapbooks and/or photo album?
