Scrapbook Albums: For Goodbyes

At StorePhotos.com, we are fortunate enough to remain in fairly regular contact with a lot of our customers and online contacts. We feel fortunate that we are able to have such an amazing network of people who love to be involved in the scrapbooking hobby. One of the questions that we get asked all the time is: Where do you get new ideas for scrapbook albums? We sometimes get our idea from talking with other people, browsing the internet, looking at other scrapbooking projects, or just by trying to think of occasions where you'd like to give a nice gift.

One idea for scrapbook albums that we came up with that we'd also like to share is a scrapbook that can be given to a friend, family member, or co-worker who is moving away. Farewells are both cheerful and sad occasions as you know you will miss the person who is leaving, but you also want to offer them the best of luck in a new chapter in their lives. You also want to remember all of the fond memories of the time that you had while you were together. If you are considering such a scrapbook project, below you'll find a few more ideas to consider while you are putting everything together.


One component of scrapbook albums is the pictures. The same is true about scrapbooks that are intended for farewells. But what kind of images can you use? If someone close to you is leaving the area, perhaps the best you can give them is a scrapbook with pictures from the area. You can drive around town and take pictures of important buildings or landmarks. You can snap photos of restaurants you frequent or other such establishments. Any place that holds a special significance to the person or your town would make an excellent addition to your going away gift. It will also help your friend or family member always remember the good times that were had.


The other major components of scrapbook albums are the embellishments. These are all the decorations that are placed on each of the pages to help make the project come to life. What kind of things can you use in a project like this? One tactic you can try is to ask friends, family members, and colleagues of the person moving away to all write brief notes. The note can be a message, wishes of good luck, a memory, or anything meaningful that can be scattered throughout the album. This can be a touching way to show how much the person will be missed.

If this project sounds like one that you'd like to attempt, you can find everything you need to make scrapbook albums at StorePhotos.com.
