Friendship-Scrapbooking-Ideas are very useful fro helping to forge new friendships and maintain old ones.
This form of scrap booking can be a great way to send some memorable pictures and quotes to someone who needs some encouragement, or just because you feel like telling that person how special they are, or in my case, to farewell an online friend whose husband was going to move them overseas.
"Yesterday brought the beginning,
tomorrow brings the end,
and somewhere in the middle we became the best of friends".
It's really amazing how we can use our creativity to put love into a special page for a good friend. If you have ever done this, especially when gifting to another crafter, you know the way you have touched their heart.
Crafting friends especially know the time, effort and intention behind our creative work. I save all my special supplies for friends who appreciate crafting.
A person does not have to be a crafter to appreciate creative work, so do think about how you could touch a friend's life by gifting them a page about your friendship. There are so few opportunities for expressing our feelings and reminding people of how important they are in our lives. Scrapbooks for friends is a beautiful way to show your appreciation of them.
If you are not sure what to put in a friend's scrapbook album, maybe you would like to start with finding a quote about friendship that sums up your relationship with your friend. This can be the start of your theme for what you are about to make. Maybe one quote could be the title for your page or for the whole album.
You can make a scrapbook for your friend on your own, or you can enlist the help of mutual friends to create a really special gift like the one I am about to tell you about below.
One day I found out a friend was going to move away because of work. She would no longer be able to join us for crafty get togethers, coffee and shopping dates. We all wanted to do something for her to help her remember our group and express our appreciation of her friendship.
Several of us crafty friends decided to band together to make a special book for a friend, with each of us completing one 6" x 6" page for her to take away with her and remind her of us.
Apart from the fixed size for the pages, the only guidelines for this project were that we had to do the following:
I decided to add to my page by making a scrapbook tag to hide behind my layout. It had my contact details on it and a personal note to encourage my friend that we could still be friends online, no matter where she and her husband would be living.
When we gave our friend her parting gift, the entire album was very thick and wonderful. Our friend was touched by our efforts and felt honoured to have been the receiver of such a heartfelt project.
I am sure she treasures the memories of our time together and can remind herself of them by looking at our scrapbook, many years late.
Have you ever used your time and creative talent to make a friend feel special? I would love us to share our ideas. Anything to strengthen friendships that combines our skills as crafters is wonderful, right?
Tell me about your
below. I would love to see a photo of your project as well.
