Scrapbooking for the Family Reunion

We are having a family reunion this summer, so I’ve spent quite a bit more time lately working on my family trees, building digital scrapbook pages, and creating the album covers for the post-bound albums that the pages will fit into.

It has been so much fun that I just wanted to share one of the 12 x 12 post bound album covers and one  of the pages that I created for our family scrapbook!

I just love this photograph of my Mom and Dad, so I’m using it for the cover of the scrapbook album that I will be ordering this week!



I just love putting digital copies of these treasured old photographs into an album so the whole family can enjoy them.

You Can Personalize the Album Cover…

I also like being able to personalize the covers of my Heritage Maker’s scrapbook (affiliate link) to match the photographs inside the album!

I can’t wait to show it to this mom!  I think she will really love it!   (It might make an awesome Mother’s Day gift, but I don’t think I can wait that long to show her!)

  • I LOVE your book and page!It makes me want to work on mine. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you! I love doing the scrapbooking, especially digitally, as I can just change and change everything until I get it the way that I want it! I am working on a pictorial family tree now, and am very excited about it, and sharing it with others at our family reunion this summer! I will post that as soon as I get two more photos!

    Thank you for sharing your ideas. I am just starting scrapbooking and your presentation is the best I’ve seen.

    I also arranged my husband’s family reunion. I’ve been working on his family tree for quiet a while. I thought about scrapbooking all of it. Putting photos and the information together.

    My husband doesn’t what his photos online and I respect his wishes.

    Your the best. Bb

    • Thank you very much for the kind words!! I am in the process now of scrapbooking our August family reunion, and not only is it fun, but I know that I am building a book that will preserve that weekend for us to enjoy again and again!
