Scrapbooking memories & 12 creative ways you can use your scrapbook

I love collecting mementos, I have always kept hold of special birthday cards, tickets and receipts for special days ever since I was young. I love being able to look back at memories and remembering the feelings of happiness and joy.

To keep all the beautiful mementos I decided I would start scrapbooking these to keep them safe and I have a place to store them all. I enjoy scrapbooking as I find it such a relaxing activity, it also allows me to be creative. It also means I can dig out my pritt stick and any excuse to use washi tape haha!




I have been so fortunate to attend concerts and festivals. I decided on Bank Holiday Monday after work that I wanted to sit and start scrapbooking some of my tickets and other mementos. I hadn’t scrapbooked in the longest time so I thought it would be fun. I am going to find the rest of my tickets etc and work on some more pages on some Sunday afternoons.





Scrapbooking is such a versatile activity and you can use scrapbooks so many other ways, so I thought I would share some other content you can put into your scrapbook.

1. Holiday photos

2. Family photos

3. Your drawings

4. Your paintings

5. Fill with memories as a gift for a loved one

6. Travel memories

7. Journalling

8. Email/Text print out memories

9. Fashion inspiration

10. Inspirational quotes

11.Magazine cut outs

12. Mood/Vision boards



Do you like to scrapbook, or have you ever scrapbooked? I’d love to hear in the comments.

  1. I’ve always wanted to start a scrapbook, but it seems like such a daunting task to start! I need to set aside a few days to get one started.

  2. I absolutely love scrapbooking! It is such a fab way to store special memories in such a creative way 🙂 I have a holiday scrapbook with postcards, plane tickets, photos and mementos as well as a concert ticket book with gig tickets and flyers. I love the idea of scrapbooking cinema tickets too. I really enjoy magazine scrapbooking to see what is inspiring me at the time… I feel like doing a some Spring/Summer pages soon. Thank you for sharing your ideas lovely, your pages are so pretty, I love the colourful washi and stickers, it is so bright and eye catching! Fab post Lauren! <3 xx

    1. I used to love to do this and I’m not even sure why or when I stopped! Thanks for sharing, o feel the need to start again, it might not even soon though, but I’ll try and make this an option 😊

    2. I am sure I will learn to be more creative etc. I have so many more things that I want to scrapbook so I will continue to do it in my spare time. Your scrapbooks look amazing! Thank you for reading and your kind words Bexa ❤️xxx

  3. I’ve never made a scrapbook, but I do like to save things like ticket stubs, and I love watching how others decorate their books. I think it requires a neatness factor that I just don’t have, but yours is looking good!

  4. Love this! I have so many just lying about and forgetting about them. This is fun yet so personal at the same time. X

  5. Love these ideas! I’ve been collecting tickets/ maps and general bits from my travels for years now with the intention of scrapbooking them all and haven’t done it yet. I really need to get myself some washi tape and get creative x


  6. I have always been creative but not tried scrapbooking yet. I have done other paper crafts like card making and recently purchased a cricut machine 🙂

  7. I’ve got a holiday scrapbook just waiting to be made! Got all the photos and the book but just haven’t sat down to do it yet 🙁 I normally just end up putting them into a normal photo album but really want to do a bit more scrapbooking! Love the idea of putting receipts and bits in

  8. I keep so many little trinkets from places I’ve visited, though I never thought of putting them in a scrap book. It looks like so much fun! That’s something I definitely need to get into doing!

  9. I love your post and have to agree any chance to use washi tape is totally worth it. I am always tucking little things into my traveler’s notebooks.

  10. I haven’t scrapbooked since I was about 10 but this makes me really miss it!
    I want to plan a trip to Hobbycraft now and get all the necessary bits and bobs so I can get back into it again! 😊

    Love Lozza xo

  11. I still have one scrapbook that I made when I was a teenager. Is still look through it sometimes and it brings up so many great memories. I have a box of mementos now that could possibly be more fun to keep in a scrapbook.

  12. I have always admired the scrapbooks I have seen people create! It seems like such a good way to save mementos and remember memories! These are some really great tips and ideas!

  13. I used to scrapbook loads but haven’t in so long! I think you’ve inspired me to grab out an empty notebook, my box of random memory stuff and get started! Love all your cute washi tapes and stickers!

  14. This is such a lovely post Lauren. Scrap booking is such a wonderful way to keep all mementos safe in one place. I never thought about it. Even I have some lovely cards, pictures and some tickets to places we have visited but all randomly lying somewhere. I need to get things together 😀

  15. I am making one currently. I love to make scrapbook and collecting moments. The lyrics, tickets,dates, photographs, poetry and all of the stuff. I want to make more and more but my parents get angry whenever I do it it too much. 😂 But I do it anyways. Loved reading your posts and finding someone who share your love is so relaxing and peaceful. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
