    Default Need ideas.. I have a scrapbook...

    I bought this scrapbook type thing about a little over a year ago. It said it was a scrapbook. I planned on using it eventually but I have no idea what to do with it now. It is really cute too. It's a Winnie the Pooh scrapbook with stickers and a lot of pages. No protector sheets or anything though so that is why I'm clueless on what to do with it. I was thinking maybe just printing out some wallet sized pictures on my cheap HP photo paper, pictures of my kids and just a little bit of everything here at home I guess. Drawing pictures with marker or colored pencils on the paper since I can't really add much to it using the stickers too of course. Maybe you all have some ideas? Here is the book.

    And there are 4 different solid color pages, 2 of each color green purple red and blue. I bought this book way before I even knew anything about scrapbooking. lol So if you have any ideas then let me know

    thanks!

    Grandparents day is coming up in Sept, maybe make it into a book for your parents? With some pics of the kids in their favorite spots and doing their favorite things, etc? They lost a lot of stuff in a fire last year didn't they? I bet they would love it.

    Mel had good ideas! It IS cute! It'd make a good "firsts" book....you know....a place where you can jot down their firsts and include some snapshots to go along with it.

    do you really WANT to use it? here's my take on it - if it's nothing like your other scrapbooks (and since you do digi, it's definitely different), then maybe you could sell it. I get it, it's a spiral bound scrapbook, but you're very limited in the fact that you can't move the pages around. They do sell page protectors that you can slide over the pages (I use that kind for my strap hinge books), if you wanted to go ahead and use it. But basically, it's scrapbook that you can use for anything really. just decide if you really think you'll use it, otherwise, you could always try to sell it to someone who uses that kind. just my thoughts ...

    i'd love to sell it if it was actually worth the effort i'd have to put up an ad someplace (usa websites are totally different than norwegian ones so craiglist would not work for me ) and then put a price on it and i don't even remember what it cost (around $10 i'm guessing). I could sell it to a friend if I had any that could use it lol that's a good idea though and I'd totally consider that if it was something I could actually do. I was actually thinking I might put some of DD's drawings that she has done in the past couple years. I have lots of her drawings that I am going to take pictures of and print them out or if they are small enough put them in the scrapbook It doesn't really matter that much to me if the sheets are protected or not. It might not last that long but I could definitely try and I wouldn't be putting very expensive picture paper in there either.
