Turn favorite Christmas cards into a special scrapbook page. Use them as a background for journaling and an oversize snowflake. If you want to save the originals, use photocopies or scans.
Personalize a page about Christmas cookie baking by adding a family recipe card (this one is tucked behind one of the photos). Then add miniature cookie cutters to the page for dimension.
Don't forget to document your family's hunt for the perfect Christmas tree. For the layout, use a large title that stands out and choose colors that coordinate with the photos.
'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Commemorating a child's Christmas crafts is easier in photos than keeping them in storage. Label each shot on a corner-rounded tab and then use the same font for journaling about your child's projects.
Capture all the excitement of Christmas Eve with a layout that features a series of snapshots from the night. Be sure to add journaling to put all your memories in one place.
Tied Up in a Bow
Christmas morning can be filled with all sorts of emotions. Capture them all with a layout that incorporates several photos of your child's many expressions.
Snap a shot of the Christmas gifts piled under the tree and then create a scrapbook page to remember the pretty packages. Match the look of the gifts by adding ribbon tied in a bow along one side of the layout.
Take pictures that showcase your child's silly side. Line up similar-size photos in rows for a block of emphasis. Go vertical with one text block and horizontal with another to mix up your journaling.
Spread Some Joy
Dress up a simple page with clever keepsakes like notes and letters. Store-bought letter stickers, ribbon, and brads are an easy way to embellish.
The Element of Surprise
A simple gingerbread shape feels snackworthy as the embellishment of this baking page. Mimic frosting by mixing acrylic paint with gesso and using glass beads as sprinkles.
Cut out letter blocks to craft the headline. Use different sizes, colors, and fonts to add flair. Trim with cut-out circles and star stickers.
