Record Your Summer Memories

     I wanted to show you a couple of ways that I have recorded memories from our past summers. I like to be able to incorporate stuff into my scrapbooks (pamphlets, maps, smashed pennies. . .) in addition to our photos. Here are three of my books.
For this one, I cut the cover off of an old book- I loved the embossed picture on here. It's bound with a chain.

Every page is different- above you can see a paper sack and part of a baseball card holder.

Here's a piece of graph paper and a paint chip.

Here's a map and a decorative file folder

This album is made from part of a file folder- I cut a file folder in half, then in half again. I love this colorful paper!
I bound this with rings so I could add to it easily. Above you can see the back of a pamphlet.

See the smashed penny that we made at the park?

Here I cut an envelope in half to make room to store stuff.

This album was made from part of a Capri Sun box. Doesn't it look summer-y?

When I cut the box, I left an extra flap so I could fold it up for a pocket. The other page is vellum with summer words printed on it.

     I'd love to hear how you all record your summer memories.
     Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you.
Psalm 56:3

Great ideas for your scrap book. I love the cover and that you used a name tag to label it...very creative!
