Scrapbooking by Theme
- Anniversary Theme
Wedding anniversaries and anniversaries of all sorts can be stand alone themes and they can also be a good part of a family scrapbook album.
- Wedding Theme
The wedding theme is often a favorite but keep in mind that if the scrapbook being made is for the bride and groom, the process of journaling the event can be very subjective. It is the ideas of the scrapbook maker about the couple which will be projected. Usually in weddings the bride and groom are both preoccupied that they do not have time to attend to and remember the small details. A wedding scrapbook will them a good idea of the guest’s perspective.
- Holiday Theme
Another favorite is the holiday theme. Who does not love Christmas and other holiday occasions? It is always a good thing to remember what everyone wore on Halloween.

A personal favorite of many, travel themes could be made in one scrapbook album or in a family scrapbook album. This will depend on the number or memorabilia you have collected and the pictures you have taken during your trip.
- Baby Theme
One of the most special scrapbook albums is the baby scrapbook album. In this album you will be able to chronicle the growth of your baby, from the day he or she was born to the day he or she took his or her first step to his or her first day at school.
