Preserving Family Memories

How do you preserve your family memories?

I am really into creating photo books on KodakGallery.com lately. It's not super creative, there are standard templates that you can plug your photos into and add text to tell the story, but they sure are easy and come out great. Though for Molly's first year of life, I scrapped everything. I filled up 2 scrapbooks and 36 pages with every holiday, event, and family detail I could possibly provide. It was a lot of work, but so much fun.

Our designer Jennifer Holmes shares my love of scrapbooking and has some beautiful ideas for us to see. Up first is a layout for Easter, here is her beautiful daughter coloring eggs. See the stamped detail in the eggs on the page, she's stamped from PSA Rosetta's. This was a fun way to use Rosettas.

Up next is a mini-scrapbook that Jennifer created to preserve her daughter's school memories. Here's the cover. I love the "Teacher Approved" PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamp. Looks great on this page! I love the textures and patterns on this page, too.

Here's a page of Jen's daughter going to school. Jen has stamped "A", "B", "C" from PSA Vanilla and it looks great. Can we agree that her daughter is beautiful!? Thanks Jen for sharing these pictures with our readers.

Scrapping takes a lot of time. It's a lot more complicated and intricate than creating a card, but it's a real art form. How many scrappers do we have here? I tend to show more cards but let us know if you'd like to be seeing more layouts. And please leave a comment today and let us know – how do you preserve your family memories?

  1. This is a great idea! Also a super cute idea for a teacher gift for the end of year gift! This coupled with a "From the desk of" stamper would be a perfect teacher gift! (This is coming from a former teacher who would have loved to receive this!)
