Holiday Traditions Scrapbook

Guest Author - Michelle McVaney

My family shares many great traditions for the holidays. I am excited to create a special album just about our holiday traditions. My scrapbooks are full of Easter layouts, valentine layouts, mothers day layouts, etc. However, I think it would be really nice to just have one album that highlights the ways we like to celebrate each of the holidays and why each of these holidays are important to our family.

My holiday traditions scrapbook is going to be a record of each holiday. The album will have a section for each holiday that we celebrate throughout the year. It will be in chronological order by how the holiday falls in the year.

I am planning to follow the same format for each holiday section. The first page for each section will be a title page that introduces that holiday and the colors for that section. I am also going to include a holiday preparation checklist. I got this idea from another scrapbooker many years ago, I can't even remember who it was. The checklist can also serve as a tool each holiday to help us remember what we need to be doing!

Each section will also have several pages of photos and journaling. My goal is to use pictures from a variety of years celebrating this holiday to date. My journaling on these pages will detail the traditions we honor on this holiday and the reasons that this holiday is important to us.

This holiday traditions album will be something that your family will cherish and enjoy sharing with others. However, this scrapbook can also serve as a tool for your family to look back at those preparation lists to get ready for an upcoming holiday. You might consider leaving an open pocket to store a favorite recipe, or crafts that you might want to try in the future as well.

I am excited to complete my holiday traditions scrapbook. I have already begun searching out the photos for each holiday. Since I am using photos across the years, this part is probably the most time consuming part of creating the whole album! Once I get the photos gathered I will pull out my supplies for each holiday and start creating my pages. This really should be a simple scrapbook to complete because it isn't an ongoing project!
