5 Scrapbooking Secrets For The Holiday Season

These 5 scrapbooking secrets are sure to bring out the best in all of your albums and pages. Though inexpensive, they are the wonderful ways to add memorable value to the pages you will cherish and love for many holiday seasons to come!

1. Buy your holiday embellishments on December 26! As always, the day after Christmas, lights and gumdrops and shiny tinsel are always at ridiculously low prices. Make sure to buy the things you could use as scrapbooking page embellishments. Look for deep discounts on Christmas stickers and patterned paper. You might even stock up for next year!

2. Save your wrapping paper! We once joked about a frugal couple who saved their wrapping paper from year to year. For scrapbooking however, this can be a truly memorable piece. In your layout, why not put some of the wrapping paper as the background for the picture of that special someone opening the present which was covered in that same paper! (You may opt to coat the paper with a archival safe gloss spray to keep from introducing acid into your album.)

3. Squash the bow! Unlike wrapping paper, I knew many families who would save the Christmas bows that were placed on presents. Try pressing them just as you would dry flowers. Placing them in a heavy book or underneath a heavy object and use them as decorative backgrounds glued to patterned paper.

4. Watch the boxes! These days almost anything you buy at Christmas comes in a box with an adorable Christmas decoration and design. Why not cut out some of the more unique designs (words, sayings, lights, snowmen...) and place them as collage material on your scrapbook page. Looking back, these designs will convey even more about the time period. (Like looking at old drawings and packaging from your parents days.)

5. Use your senses! Christmas is such a special holiday and in many ways is unique because of our senses. From thousands of twinkle lights in yards to a gingerbread cookie, even the smell of a Christmas tree, our senses contribute to our memories of the holidays. Try capturing as many of them as possible in your scrapbook albums. Instead of conveying events, write about smells, sights, feelings, tastes, and sounds. This means you will need to either write them all down temporarily, or finish the pages quickly in order to remember all of the details that made the moment truly special!

Christmas and scrapbooking have always gone together. With friends and family and so many warm memories, this should be a time you capture all of the moments and record them for generations to come. These 5 scrapbooking secrets are simple, inexpensive, and effective ways to put the most into this year's scrapbooking album...and the many wonderful seasons to come!
