A scrapbook with almost no photos: ten ideas to make one

You can do a lot to make a scrapbook without using a lot of photos. The answer lies in using quotes, journaling (writing) about your special memories, and using memories. Think about the message you want to convey with your album and start looking for other ways to make a special and meaningful book.

Here are ten ideas for you to consider if you wanted to make a nearly imageless scrapbook about an important relationship, for example:

  1. Write the words of your favorite song. Add some facts about the band that sings it, when you first heard it together, and why the song became important to both of you.
  2. Write in a journal how you met, where you were, who introduced you, what you thought of him or her, and when you first met. Did she speak on that first occasion? Were your first impressions of each other right or wrong?
  3. Diary about the first place they went together. Take a photo of that place or add some memories of it (for example: if it was a restaurant you went to for the first time, see if you can get a copy of the menu for your scrapbook. If you went to the movies, did you? Do you save ticket stubs? Use them in your scrapbook. If you don’t have souvenirs, see if you can print something off the internet that will remind you of where you went. It could be something like the name of the place that you could use as the page title, or a description of the place, or even a price list).
  4. Write in a journal what you love about him or her.
  5. Make a fun page about all the silly things you’ve done together or all the things you have in common. Make another page pointing out the differences between you and why you love these differences.
  6. Record a few things you both like (songs, movie tracks, etc.) and include a CD, DVD, or flash drive of the recording in a pocket in your album.
  7. Cut a lock of your hair and also a lock of your partner’s hair and make a page. Maybe your hair color has changed or is different from your partner’s in some way, or maybe it’s very similar and you’re in awe of it. If you are going to spend your life together, write how you will continue to love each other even when you are old and gray.
  8. Did you press flowers from the bouquets she gave you or that you gave her? Add them to your scrapbook and tell us how you received or delivered the flowers. Write about why you chose those particular flowers. What is it about flowers that you like and why? Do they remind you of a significant place or moment in your lives together? Flowers have meanings and you could find a book on the language of flowers to see what the flowers mean. Did you send the right message with your bouquet?
  9. Make a page about the future and how you want it to unfold between the two of you. What plans do you have? What are your goals? Where do you hope to be in five or ten years?
  10. Make a page about the best day you’ve ever had together. Pick the funniest day and the saddest day too and make pages about them. You may have some jokes or sayings that are private between you. You could write about them and make some hidden pockets or labels in your album to keep them hidden from casual readers.
  11. Find some quotes you like that say something about your feelings for him or her and write how the quote is important to you.

I hope some of these ideas inspire you to make your own scrapbook with almost no images. May your album become something you love and treasure for years to come.
