Last week, I told you about some great Cub Scout scrapbook products that I had found. As I was researching Cub Scout scrapbook products, I found some great information and ideas.
Today, I want to share some information and ideas that I discovered while researching Cub Scout scrapbook ideas.
If you’re a novice scrapbooker or you are trying to figure out how to get started, you’ll want to take a look at this great scrapbooking guide that Susie sent to me. It has links to many other resources that will help you begin scrapbooking.
Although it’s old, Scouting Magazine published an article about scrapbooking your Scouting memories that you might find helpful. Jeri Sullivan also wrote a good article. You’ll also want to check out this eHow article.
There are some really nice galleries with layout ideas. Scrapbook.com has over 500 Cub Scout layouts. Some of them are a bit dated, but there are plenty of good suggestions. Sweet Shoppe Designs has beautiful layouts. You do need to register to search the gallery, but there is no cost.
I talked about a Cub Scout Scrapbook board that I found last week on Pinterest that was very inspiring! I decided to create a scrapbook board on the Cub Scout Ideas Pinterest account. I made it a group board (which means we can all pin to it), and I would love to have your ideas! If you would like to be added to the group board, leave me a comment below with your Pinterest user name.
Of course, Pinterest offers a plethora of ideas. Am I the only one who has to force myself to turn the computer off when I start looking at pins?
What Cub Scout memories do you scrapbook? Some ideas for scrapbook pages or albums are:
- Adventures – Record the activities your son does to complete adventures. Include pictures of the ceremonies where he received the adventure loop. If your pack gives out pocket certificate cards for completed adventures, put those in your scrapbook too.
- Other Awards – Whether working on the Nova or Supernova award, the Outdoor Activity Award or the World Conservation award, your son’s efforts make great scrapbooking opportunities.
- Cub Scout Day Camp or Resident Camp –No boy’s Cub Scout experience can be recorded properly without scrapbooking his camping adventures.
- Rank Advancement Ceremonies– A scrapbook made up of rank advancement ceremonies would make a wonderful keepsake for your son.
I would love to hear your suggestions and ideas! Feel free to leave me a comment to share.
Yours in Scouting,
