How to Add Memorabilia to Scrapbook Pages

Hello scrappers! It's Throwback Thursday and today I'm sharing a 8.5x11 custom album I made for a wonderful client and his dad. I wanted to show you some different examples of how to incorporate memorabilia into your scrapbook pages.

Every year this client planned a long weekend trip for him and his dad. They would pick a specific region and spend the weekend flying to different baseball parks, attending the games and touring the cities. How fun! Afterwards he sent me pictures and memorabilia from their time together. He preferred simple with very little embellishments for his two matching albums.

So how do you add photos, tickets, brochures, maps, itineraries, etc. without having 37 scrapbook pages from one weekend trip? Here's some tips ...

On this page I printed the titles & dates on white cardstock & layered a picture of the itinerary that the client sent me. Then I added a great photo of the two of them sized perfectly to sit next to one of the tickets from their game. 

I needed to add a lot of photos to this page so I arranged some of his digital photos in Word (or Pages for Mac users) and made a collage. Then printed it on 8.5x11 photo paper and slipped in into the page protector. So easy & adds a lot of images to one page!

To add a pocket for his National War Museum brochure and postcard, I used two pictures that he took at the location and glued them to white cardstock. Glued the edges of that to black cardstock leaving the center a pocket. Slid the entire page into a page protector & then cut an opening across the plastic in order to slide items into the pocket.

For this page, the client sent me an 8.5x11 printed emailed ticket for the Twins/Royals game. I didn't want this to take up the entire page so I shrunk it down, printed it on archival paper and tucked it next to 3 photos from the day. Now, we're talkin'! This shows them everything they wanted to remember about the day on one simple page.

To add an interactive element (and more photo space) I added 2 flip-out pages. I included a picture of them having a caricature done and then a photo of the caricature. Perfect since we couldn't fit the actual artwork in the album. And underneath the flippies, more photos from the day. Perfect!

Hope this gives you some inspiration for adding memorabilia to your next scrapbook. Happy scrappin' friends!
