I focus on presenting my family history research in a ‘kid’ friendly format. That’s why I wanted to create a family history scrapbook.
I recently created a 33-page heritage scrapbook with Penny as the focal point. You can see the cover of the finished project above.
Inside I added a photo family tree, a timeline, and descendant pages. Then, I created scrapbook pages about her parents and four grandparents. I also included pages that featured her life including her birth, youth, sisterhood, twirling, high school photos, wedding, and married life.
I have shared pages from the album on this blog. Check the scrapbooking category to see pages from this and other albums.
I’m excited with the way it turned out. I printed this out as the ‘standard’ 12×12 scrapbook size. I’ll admit that it’s cool that the book is so large. But, that’s the problem. The book is so large. I can’t find a good place to store it. It’s a bit awkward to handle.
I may someday try the ‘new standard’ of 8×8. However, I’ve been doing scrapbooking at the 8.5×11 size for many years, and I’m most comfortable with that size. We’ll see.
