Scrapbook Safe Haven
If you’re looking to let your creativity flow, then scrapbooking is for you.
Scrapbooks are your own empty canvas for transferring your memories into a tangible item to look back and reflect on.
Are you the type of person to hold onto tickets, room keys or maps from your holiday destinations? Then stick these into the pages of your scrapbook, and overlay them with photographs, drawings or quotes.
Calligraphy, the art of producing decorative handwriting or lettering with a pen or brush is another method that is perfect for scrapbooks. The cursive strokes of the pen create an effective yet simplistic style which can be used to write down specific destinations, dates or details or your adventures.
