If you are looking for an original way to organize your selected photos, organising them in special scrapbook albums could be the solution. Scrapping is a very exciting hobby, and offers a great way to organise your treasured past for posterity. It’s a fun and addictive pastime that helps you to use your imagination and add your personal touches to your pages.

Pre-packaged kits come in a huge range of themes, and contain a selection of pre-designed materials such as cardstock, stencils, casings or stickers.

If you’ve got a digital camera, then there are some great digital scrapbooking software kits that all sorts of things, from themes to font styles.
There are lots of other free scrapbook ideas online, and a number of artistic ways of putting embellishments to your pages.

This may work nicely in both chronological or heritage scrapbooks, as well as in other sorts of scrapbooking albums.
