There are so many things to do just to get rid of a bad hair day, heartbroken situation or just to get over boredom. Sometimes, teens experience so much trouble on simple things that can ruin their day probably it is being caused by sudden change of hormones or just being affected by the current events that happen in their daily lives. These teens as well need a break from the scolding of their parents, afternoon lectures from their terror high school professors and peer pressure as well.

Doing stuff that has never been done before would definitely keep your mind free from the bondage of stress and demands. Do not always think that the whole world is against you for you can still do something and compel that negative force that goes along with it. Always cheer up and indulge yourself in dealing with your hidden talent and creativity. After a long day in school, why not check out the scrapbook shops for kits that can help you do a scrapbooking project that can serve as you emotional outlet. Make highly enjoyable tasks that would help you forget the strenuous activities.

First things first, create a picture collage of you and your best bud in school. Highlight your most memorable times together with doodles or one-lines. Frame it and hang it in your room. It’s guaranteed to brighten up a cloudy day. Second, make your own intimate greeting cards with cute covers. If you and your gal pal love to gab on the phone all night, why not use the red telephone for your cover page. Third, pick out your nicest family picture and make your own portable family portrait. It’s really light that you can bring it anywhere you want. Dress up the page of your handwritten diary with the help of these cute cut out images.

Making such scrapbooks does not need to take too much of your time for its easy and fun to do. You’ll not even notice that an hour has already passed. Let go of those off-putting emotions and start working with a more fun activity that you can share with your friends. After all, seeing your friend’s and families’ photos in a collage will not only be just for the sake of having one, but you’ll get inspiration from it to handle everyday hectic schedules.

Scrapbooking…not just for photos


Posted on : | By : admin | In : Articles

Scrapbooks aren’t meant just for photos. Keep movie ticket stubs, concert ticket stubs, love letters from boys, children’s artwork, your favorite brand name clothes tags, a test with an A+ on it and many other items.

Today, we can still preserve our memories by adding these extra little things to our scrapbooks. I recommend making copies of everything. Unless the original paper is acid free, it will yellow and crumble with time. There are also archival sprays that may be helpful. Include the original in your scrapbook, but also keep a copy.

So, what types of “extras” are fun to put into scrapbooks?

· Report Cards

· Essays from School

· Birthday Invitations

· Maps of Cities Visited

· College Brochures

· Greeting Cards

· Post Cards

· Decorative Napkins

· Place Cards from Table Settings

· Pressed Flowers

· Receipts & coasters from a Favorite Restaurant

· Play and Concert Programs

· Sporting Event Tickets and Programs

· Magazine and Newspaper Articles

· Old Drivers Licenses

· CD Covers

These items can be added to individual pages or they can be left intact and put into a sheet protector alongside photos of the events they represent.

There is no limit to the items you can put into your scrapbook. Extra items help to tell the overall story.
