10 Reasons Why You Should Scrapbook Your Photos

I finally got my Cricuit out and here are some of the things I made for the baby books I am making for my three step children and grandson.

I found this great article and I had to share. 

10 Reasons Why You Should Scrapbook Your Photos 

The number one reason to scrap your pictures is…..*drumroll* to preserve them! Yes, by using acid-free materials including page protectors and the proper glue you can preserve your cherished memories for generations to come. 

The second, if your heritage is important to you, you will want to naturally preserve your photos for this reason. 

The third, your children and grandchildren will appreciate being able to look back at where they and their ancestors came from!  

The fourth, it’s a hobby! Scrapbooking has become one of the hottest arts and crafts hobbies in America. You can combine so many different elements in your layouts. You can use paint, metal, plastic, buttons, beads, ribbon, cloth, wire and sooooo much more! 

The fifth reason to scrap is….it’s FUN! You can get together with your girlfriends and have a scrap party or a crop. Lots of pizza, gabbing and, of course, scrapping! 

The sixth reason is use scrapping as a vent for healing. Sometimes scrapping difficult memories can let you cope with the situation a little easier.

The seventh reason, you can be as creative as you want to be. Being creative can give you a sense of pride and healthy self-esteem, especially when others comment on how beautiful your work is! 

The eighth reason, you can finally get rid of all of those shoe boxes in your closets or under your bed and get organized!  

How about a ninth reason? Brush up on your photography skills! Learn new ways of taking great and memorable pictures that will capture the moment and tell the story. 

The final reason for scrapping…..they make fantastic personal gifts! It does not have to be a huge 30 page album. A mini-album will do the trick and the person who gets it will appreciate how much thought and creativity you have put into their wonderful gift! 

So, now you have at least ten reasons to scrapbook, so get out those photos and go for it! Most importantly, have fun with it!
