Three Great Ideas For A Romantic Scrapbook Project

Have you ever been stuck on an idea for a scrapbook project? Most, if not all scrapbookers have experienced this problem, so you’re not alone. But the best thing about this is that there are lots of great sources of inspiration out there for us scrapbookers. And your life experiences may be one of the best sources of scrapbooking ideas you can ever get.

If you’re stuck on a scrapbook project, why not sit down and try to think about a romantic moment in your life. This is a surefire way to express your creativity and show how much your loved one means to you at the same time. Whether you just want to try out another scrapbook theme or you’re planning to document the lifelong love affair between you and your partner, a romantic scrapbook could be one of the most beautiful, emotionally-filled projects you could ever undertake.

Whatever your reason may be, there are lots of great ideas you could use in creating that romantic scrapbooking masterpiece. And I’m going to share three of the best ideas with you today:

1. Your first date - You might think that this is a basic and common theme for a romantic scrapbook page, but you’d be amazed at the number of people that forget about making a page to commemorate their first date together with their partner. And if you really think about it, what better way to start out your romantic scrapbook with the event that “lit the fire”, so to speak; the date where it all began?

Did you go to see a movie, a concert, or maybe enjoy a few hours at the carnival? Maybe you went out for a lavish dinner at a fancy restaurant, or just a quick snack at the diner? These are just a few of the many inspirational moments that you could use for your “First Date” page; once you get started with this, I’m sure that you’re going to have plenty more of ideas for this theme.

2. Love letters - Love letters are always a rich source of inspiration for romantic scrapbook pages. These are usually filled with memorable quotes about love, courtship, or marriage – sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but almost always endearing. Aside from the quotations, I’m willing to bet that reading the love letters from your partner will make you remember a few cherished events or romantic moments shared between the two of you. Now it’s up to you to choose which of those memories you’d want to share with the rest of the world, and how you’re going to express your thoughts and feelings about it.

You could use some acid-free paper for photo-copying a love letter or two and use that as the background for your scrapbook page. You can also use a photograph or a postcard from the place where your partner lived, if he or she lived in another location or even another country. Let your creativity run loose.

3. Adventures - An adventure with your loved one doesn’t have to be in Cambodia or the Amazon jungle for it to be special. It could be as near as the park in your town (where you both sang a duet to a crowd of strangers), or as high as the rooftop of your apartment (where you tried some backyard wrestling). All that matters is that both of you enjoyed a special, exhilarating moment together.

Some scrapbookers don’t even realize how many wonderful adventures they’ve had until they take the time to really think about it. How about you? Perhaps there was a day when you thought you would absolutely die during that bungee jump. Or how about that time when you made a bet with each other about who could ride that roller-coaster the most number of times without getting sick – and you both lost? Make a scrapbook layout about your craziest, wildest adventures together and relive the times when you were both fearless and didn’t have a care in the world except for each other.
