Christmas scrapbooking holds a special place in our albums. Offering lots of special dreams and fond memories because there are so many themes to follow – beginning with the snowy weather and ending with the religious meaning of the season, there are plenty of scrapbooking ideas inspiration to draw from the season.

Some suggestions for your Christmas scrapbooking might include creating a special Christmas Idea scrapbooking project. This could enlist the help of all members of the family. For a special loved one far away, perhaps serving in the military or for an infirmed grandparent, a special gift such as a Christmas scrapbooking calendar with family pictures and a little journaling would be a great idea. Start early to insure that you are finished on time.

Another idea is to take head shots for each person in your family or each of your friends. Make an ornament from their head shot using colorful background papers, and a circle or ornament template. Cut and adhere the photos and baubles at different heights from the top of the page. Use realistic Christmas scrapbook tree paper across the title block for added effect. Add additional ornaments with favorite Christmas Scrapbook memories. This “Family Tree” idea and other Christmas ideas for scrapbooking will make your family album lots of fun to look at in later years.

A few more Christmas Idea scrapbooking techniques:

  • Save pieces of wrapping paper for picture backgrounds.
  • Use the ribbons from your Christmas gifts, tie bits and pieces along the spine of an album to decorate it.
  • Staple pieces of ribbon to the edges of the page or onto journaling.
  • Save colorful gift tags for embellishments.
  • Have the children write letters to Santa. Save them or scan and reduce them to use as embellishments for your holiday pages.
