Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) August 4, 2006
Summer may be coming to an end but it doesn’t mean families can’t re-live the fun adventures and travels they experienced. Photographs and mementos from the warmer months can be easily assembled into a scrapbook -- perfect for a coffee table or given as a gift. AP9 TodaysEscapes, a membership program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, shares ideas for putting all those summer memories together in a special scrapbook.

AP9 Todays Escapes offers these creative solutions for putting together a scrapbook that captures all those summer memories.
-- Keep a paper trail. Baseball game ticket stubs, amusement park passes and travel brochures are easy pieces to include in an album. Design a theme page of the day trip or weekend trip to a water park or sports event with photos from that trip, too.
-- Think in three dimensions. Items such as small seashells or game tokens can be mounted in a scrapbook with double-sided tape or acid-free glue. A collection of tiny items can be applied as a fancy border for multiple pages.
-- Crop and trim. Local craft stores carry special scissors and cutting tools to trim photos. These tools can turn an ordinary picture into one that has rounded or fancy corners. Look for fun paper punches that create summer-themed shapes like water waves, flowers, picnic foods and even animals. Punching along a page makes a border and the punched-out shapes can be glued on other pages as accents.
-- Take one page at a time. Pouring through dozens of summertime photos can be overwhelming. Set realistic goals for designing a page or two at a time. Be selective with photos as only the best ones tell the most memorable stories. Less is more so consider using two to three pictures per page as other items described above will complement and fill each page.
A summer scrapbook is a great way to spend a night together as a family. Each family member can find their inner artist and contribute their own designs and written memories from each summer adventure. These scrapbook tips are presented by AP9 TodaysEscapes.
