Christmas Scrapbooks


It turns out that my Mom was way ahead of the recycling bandwagon.  For years and years my Mom (and sister too) has been making Christmas Scrapbooks out of Christmas cards.  (as always, click on pictures to make them bigger)



I believe the scrapbooks were originally the brainchild of a dear family friend, Bevy, and my Mom has improved a few verses and tweaked the layouts a bit.  The books are actually alphabet books about Christmas and each verse has "scenes" to go along with the theme.




The books turn out beautiful and are just lovely to browse through.  I think that any child my Mom makes one for should count themselves as lucky!





P.S.  Friends far and wide give my Mom their Christmas cards to use.  However, I'm not sure what's going to happen since picture cards have become so very popular.  Fortunately, she has hundreds of cards as backup!

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I have been wanting to do *something* with our beautiful Christmas cards, but wasn't sure what exactly. You (and your Mom) have inspired me!

  2. Hi, I saw your comment on Design Mom and followed to your post here. Would you be willing to share with me the verses your mom does for each letter (if there is an easy way to do that)? My mother made a similar book when we were young...A is for Angels, B is for Bethlethem, etc., but it didn't survive. I would love to do something like that for my kids.

    Thank you if you are able to help. You can e-mail me at funakilyahoocom.
