Scrapbooking Christmas: 25 Ways to Capture the Magic: Day 13 Special Decorations

Day 13: Special Decorations and Ornaments

If you are like me you have a couple of Christmas decorations that are super-special! Perhaps it’s a family heirloom, or you received it as a gift, or maybe you just LOVE it! Is it a nativity scene, a sprig of mistletoe, a music box nutcracker or a handmade decoration? Have you included it in your scrapbook?

Photo Ideas:

  • Photo of your special decoration
  • Photo of the the decoration with the person who gave it to you
  • Photo of you with the decoration
  • Photo of the place of honour in your home where it is displayed
  • Photo of it being set up while you are decorating

Journaling Ideas:

  • Why is this decoration so special to you?
  • Tell about how you came to have this decoration
  •  What is the background of this decoration
  • Is this an heirloom… or WILL it be?
  • If an ornament is handmade who made it? Can you share that on your page?

I have a few decorations that are very special to me.  Ornaments my kids made in playschool, something from my grandmother. A decoration from our favourite travel destinations.  I am going to include all of these in my Christmas scrapbook this year. How are you including your favourite ornaments?

Join us tomorrow for Day 14: Stockings

    Hey Alice,
    We have lots of special ornaments! The majority of our ornaments on our tree are homemade. I especially love all the crocheted ones that Eric’s mom made. Also, since Eric’s mom died in 2010, every Christmas we buy 1 ornament for the tree just for her. This is a great way to remember her.
