Why Scrapbooking? with QueenBrat Designs

https://www.mymemoriesblog.com/search/label/Why%20Scrapbooking%3F

Hello! Welcome back to my blog series on 'Why Scrapbooking?'
Today let's explore one of the biggest reasons to scrapbook....Your photos deserve a real life home!

Our cell phones are a great asset in our busy lives to make sure tha t we document all of those important moments, but our pictures weren't meant to live on our phones. Yes, I am very guilty of this myself. My phone has over 2000 pictures on it at this very moment!

Because it's important to not lose those memories that are stored on your cell phone, I am going to coordinate this post in my blog series with this months forum challenge. Let's save those cell phone pictures so they are not lost forever in a phone accident. And, then let's scrap some of the moments you have saved in your pictures. See the forum challenge for more details on this. You can find it here: https://forums.mymemories.com/?forum=724365

I also want to point out for those of us that are 'pre-cell phone era' all of those boxes of pictures that you have hidden in your closets and under your beds are important too. Yes, guilty here! Those too deserve a real home so they can be enjoyed by your children and grandchildren in the future.

With Mother's Day and Father's Day fast approaching this would be a great time to put together a photobook with some of your photos as a gift.

The My Memories designers have loads of pre-made photo books available in the store. You simply add your photos and journaling and you're ready to print.
Here are two that I have in the store that would be perfect for Mother's Day:

This photo book set was made to use in the My Memories Suite Software and my Moments With Mom Scrap Kit. It includes a cover and 20 ready-made pages. You will also receive all of the background papers and embellishments that were used on the ready-made pages so you have the option of creating additional pages. It's available in 12x12, 11x8.5, and 8x8. You can find them here: https://www.mymemories.com/store/designers/QueenBrat_Designs

 

This photo book set was made to use in the My Memories Suite Software and my Love Story Scrap Kit. It includes a cover and 20 ready-made pages. You will also receive all of the background papers and embellishments that were used on the ready-made pages so you have the option of creating additional pages. It's available in 12x12, 11x8.5, and 8x8. You can find them here: https://www.mymemories.com/store/product_search?term=love+story+pb


For those that are looking for individual pages to put together here are a few ideas:

 

These are cell phone pics of my grandson, Riley, from about 5 years ago. He was entertaining us with his cover of "Boys 'Round Here". I used my scrap kit ALL MY LOVE. You can find the kit at MyMemories here: https://www.mymemories.com/store/product_search?term=all+my+love


 

This is one of my shoebox pictures. It's of my youngest son and was made about 23 years ago. I used my kit AMERICAN WILD WEST for the layout. You can find the kit at MyMemories here: https://www.mymemories.com/store/product_search?term=AMERICAN+WILD+WEST


 

This one falls into shoebox pictures although I actually have this framed and hanging at my desk. It was taken in the late 70's. This is my Dad and an unknown child (see why we need to scrap our pictures?). My grandmother had this picture in her shoebox stash and I inherited it when she passed. Unfortunately everyone in our family who could identify this child is now gone. I used my scrap kit DEAR DADDY for the layout. You can find the kit at MyMemories here: https://www.mymemories.com/store/category_search?search[type]=&search[category]=106&search[designer]=D140 


This one is a cell phone picture. This is my beautiful mother and I included a poem as my journaling. If you look closely you will see a date in the right bottom corner. Dates are a great thing to add as it will help others know when the picture was taken in the future. I used my scrap kit M IS FOR MOTHER for this layout. You can find the kit at MyMemories here: https://www.mymemories.com/store/display_product_page?id=QBRK-CP-1305-33148

Now that I have given you one more reason of WHY SCRAPBOOKING join me on the My Memories Forum for my March Challenge to scrap your memories! You can find it here: https://forums.mymemories.com/?forum=724365

Hope you enjoyed this post on my WHY SCRAPBOOKING series. Don't put off saving those pictures from your cell phone!
