Patriotic Memorial Scrapbook Ideas

Patriotic holidays have always been huge in my family. My Dad is a Veteran and retired from the Navy. So there were always parades he marched in and assemblies to attend. After that, we always got together for a family cookout.

If you like scrapbooking, you might want to check out these family vacation scrapbook ideas.

These memorial scrapbook ideas would work for both Memorial Day or July 4th or any time you had a patriotic-themed event or photographs that you wanted to scrapbook.

When I went over to my parents’ house for Memorial Day, both kids and their girlfriend/boyfriend were able to come as well. I took photographs with my iPhone of the kids, their dates, my parents, and Marty and I all standing in the same place.

How do you make a memorial book?

I decided coming up with a scrapbook page for these photos would be a great way to save these memories rather than just letting the photos sit on my phone forever.

  • Go through your photos.
  • Create a structure
  • Consider the final design
  • Organize embellishments
  • Create a rough draft
  • Finalize the design

Best printer for scrapbook photos

Last month, I figured out how to get my phone to print to my Epson printer. So now I can print all the photos I take with my phone instead of leaving them there and forgetting about them. This layout would work just as well with traditional photos.

How do you make a unique scrapbook?

I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Project Life Photo Pocket Pages to do all of my scrapbook projects. They let me use different-sized photographs and they are super easy to create.

It looks like I spend a lot more time creating them than I have to. You just slide the accessory cards and the photographs into the page slots and move them around until you like the layout.

There is no messy glue and no paper to cut – unless you really want to.

Best way to record memorial scrapbook ideas

The photos I printed out are 4″ x 6″, so this month, I used the 12×12 sheet with 4 of the large 4×6 slots. The cards I added were from the Stampin’ Up! Moments Like These Project Life Card Collection.

Then I used the Project Life Day To Day Photopolymer Stamp Set to add the date.

Then I used some homemade page flags that I had made for my planner along with some sticky embellishments I got from the dollar store. I turned cards that weren’t officially intended to be patriotic in nature into ones that would work with what I had in mind.

That’s what I love about Project Life by Stampin’ Up! It’s such a versatile way to preserve your photos. Check out all of the Project Life kits and accessories to choose from to get more memorial scrapbook ideas.

  1. There was a time when my son was growing up that I just love to scrapbook.  But then it seemed like I had less and less time to do it until I finally just stopped altogether.  Now that he is grown and gone I think it would be a great time to go through my photos and make a few to pass on to him.  I love the idea of using the photo pocket pages.  What a time saver!!  Yours looks awesome and really has me inspired.
