Scrapbook Ideas | How to Make a Scrapbook
My daughter came to me with a project that they have for school, a scrapbook. So, we had our creative juices flowing and worked on her project all night. It turned out better than we expected.
With that, I decided that maybe I should also make one. I love collecting mementos and I can’t get enough of taking photos anytime we go for a trip so that would be perfect. I wanted to make this extra special and feel that I needed new ideas on how to make this craft project. That’s why I’m sharing everything the I found, from scrapbook layout ideas to page ideas, I’m sure your scrapbook will turn out extra special.
