Scrap This...

Making a Winter craft is on this seasons Bucket List.
I thought knitting might "fill the bill" 
but I also had some memories that needed to be added to my scrapbook.
Just yesterday - I worked on that.

I keep a scrapbook for our annual trips to ICE!
Here are some pictures of the scrapbook pages I created yesterday 
from our most recent trip in December.

This is a "2 page spread".
If you know anything about scrapbooking, you usually prepare 2 coordinating pages,
that lay side by side when the book is opened.

Here are some close-ups of each page...

I keep ticket stubs, room keys and any memorabilia that we pick up during the trip.

Our first trip to ICE was in 2010 when I read about it on Facebook,
I started this book after that trip.

This book is full - I will either add pages or start a new book.

The inside cover and first page is a summery of sorts,
displaying the pictures that they take, and we purchase each year.

I keep a Peeps sack glued to the back cover,
to hold things I want to keep and don't want to display on the pages.

I don't scrapbook as much as I use to, 
I print my blog every three months and that has replaced my scrapbooks.


  1. Oh Debbie, your scrapbook is so pretty, and tells a story that takes along to see this amazing place. I have loved your posts about ICE, what a magical place, full of so much beauty. Can you tell me where you get your blog printed? Thank you for posting, I love popping over for a visit.

  2. Hello, Debbie your scrapbooks are great. Wonderful memories of your trips! Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

  3. WOW!! WOW!! and then again, WOW!!!

  4. Awesome! I've made a couple and really enjoyed it. Xoxo

  5. It's lovely how you keep your memories organised in such lovely ways Debbie - it's a beautiful art :D)

  6. Debbie, these are beautiful!!
    I used to keep scrapbooks many years ago, but have not done anything like that in a long time.
    It might be interesting to try it again now, with all of the modern goodies available.

  7. Fun representations of fun memories. I love what you have created, Debbie. Love the cover of your scrapbook; so very pretty!

  8. Love the scrapbook. I studied up on it a little bit when I first retired and then I made scrapbooks/albums for each of the kids using the trunkful of photos and mementos I'd collected over all the years when I was too busy to breathe let alone make books! It was fun, but it wasn't long after that when I got into traveling and photography and blogging and that was the end of my scrapbooking. I've thought about printing my blog or at least parts of it. I'd be interested to know what you use for doing that.

  9. This scrapbook is gorgeous. I also love the Peeps bag on the back.

  10. Great job. My blog seems to be my scrapbook.

  11. I think books like this are so special, thanks for sharing the pages with us.

    All the best Jan

  12. I never take the effort to make books like that, I rarely ever print pictures anymore

  13. Great page spreads, how special to have all the years of your trips there in one place to see how things have been over the years. I really had in my mind to at least document our big vacations we take each year but haven't done it yet, maybe one of these days.

  14. I like the format of the pages you made. It takes a lot of time to do this sort of thing. I do love that you have a book made of your posts every three months. I really want to do thi too. I used to save ticket stubs and etc. but haven't for a while. Seeing your scrapbook is inspiring. Blessings and hugs~
