Jumpstart Creativity with Scrapbooking Hobby

Scrapbooking is one of the most absorbing things you can do to save and share memories and moments in highly artistic and creative ways. You can turn dull photos into amazing images with a splash of color, stunning cut-up patterns, or a line of humor or poetry. It’s not just about the pictures or the captioning themselves, it is how you present them. Thankfully, there are an amazing array of scrapbooking accessories on the market today that just shopping around the stores inspires further creativity.

There are things in nature and in your home—in plain view—that when you look closely, can be used to put together to highlight a frame, or enhance a picture in your scrapbook. The scraps of color paper in your child’s room, or cut up pieces of velvet to shade the pages as border or background.

Scrapbooking Tips: Dealing with Photos

With scrapbook making, photos and images are the big shots. The creative use and placement of photos can harness the playground of the imagination whose value can infuse a dynamic feel to the overall design. Here are some tips to get your photos tell exciting stories in your scrapbook:

Choosing Your Album

Find an album style that allows you to move around the pages easily to make organizing less stressful. Some good choices will be a 3-ring binder-style or post-bound album.

Personal Scrapbooks Help the Elderly Remember

As people grow older, they start losing their memories. This condition can be managed by reminiscence therapy; in individual or one-on-one settings, the therapist makes use of the same tools necessary, as well as encourage the patient, to create a “life history book”, which others also call a “scrapbook.” Putting together bits of the patient’s memorabilia and encouraging creativity and imagination with the use of scrapbook supplies can help achieve the therapy’s main goals, which are to help the patient re-establish self-esteem, alleviate boredom and depression, and improve the ability to communicate. Also, by stimulating the brain, scrapbooking can help in delaying cognitive degeneration. Continue reading

Carry On, Soldier

Family members whose loved ones are in the armed forces will miss them deeply whenever they’re deployed in other locations. At some point in the future, these servicemen and women themselves may also want to look back at the time they wore the uniform.

Their camouflage patterns may also be accent pieces, but be careful not to overdo it. Continue reading
