Scrapbooking Using Letters to and from Parents

by Amber Ellis

As your family’s storyteller, you can convey the past to those in the future through your scrapbooks. 

What better way to share your memories with a child than to include a letter for them on a layout about them? Letters to children may include big life lessons they can remember from a small step they took in their life. Your letter will serve as a marker along their journey of physical and emotional progress.

You Rock by Joannie McBride, as seen in the May/June 2011 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine.

Design Tip: Create a layout like Joannie did featuring a large cardstock flap to cover your journaling. Attach the flap to your page using brads. Score the cardstock just below the brads, and add a tab or string at the bottom to show the reader how to find the letter underneath.
