Fourth of July Scrapbook Ideas {100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas! Day 47}

Wishing my fellow Americans a wonderful Independence Day today! Here are some of my Fourth of July scrapbook layouts from July 2011. The kids and I were visiting family in Massachusetts, while Daddy was on a business trip overseas. As you can see, we had a great time! Too bad this year’s trip to see them was earlier in the summer. New England is a great place to celebrate America :). I made this photo book with Mixbook, and used their “Stars and Stripes” theme. I am not usually a fan of the themes that come with photo books, but I have to say that this one was just perfect :)!

God bless the land that I love – I am so thankful for my country and my freedom!

100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas {Day 2: Collecting Summer Favorites}

Is there something you tend to take LOTS of photos of every summer? Why not make a mini scrapbook or photo book with just a collection of photos of that favorite thing? It could be trips to the pool, ball games, or even something as simple as a collection of summer flower photos, like mine from last summer. Sometimes grouping “like” photos together from the course of a season, year or even several years can create more impact and are more relevant together than randomly spread throughout many pages or albums.

I am always inspired by flowers, so I seek them out and photograph them where ever we go. Most of the time I just have too many to put them all into my regular scrapbooks, and they don’t really need any text, so I love to  make picture books filled with some of my favorites! This photo book was created using Mixbook (I used an awesome coupon!), and I uploaded digital scrapbook paper from my freebie kit {Loveliness} to use for the backgrounds. Very simple, but I love the result :)!

How about you? Have you scrapbooked any collections? Something to think about as you’re snapping your summer photos this year :).
