Printables: Thanksgiving Scrapbook Layouts

printable Thanksgiving Scrapbook layouts, Thanksgiving scrapbook ideas

Thanksgiving is the time of year to be grateful for all that we have.  Also, it’s a day to capture another blessed day with family and friends, great food and another year of blessings.  Charge camera batteries or purchase them the night before.  Nobody wants to run out of batteries or have their camera die on such a festive day, right. Besides, if you don’t have pictures you can’t scrapbook.

Thanksgiving scrapbook pages can be added to a photo album or you can create one page and cherish it too.  It doesn’t matter because what it’s truly important is the memories.  Take pictures of the children creating Thanksgiving crafts or devouring Thanksgiving snacks to tide them over until dinner.  Capture memories of the turkey or kitchen disasters.  You will want to look back on the day and savor every moment.

Furthermore, include the good and bad of the day.  Scrapbooking is all about the memories.  All of them.  Thanksgiving scrapbook layouts are your answer to preserving the memories.  You can also turn the pages into Thanksgiving scrapbook layout craft projects for the kids.  Take pictures of them and than print each child’s favorite picture.  Afterwards, print the Family Fun scrapbook page above and let them add the picture.  It will be a great take home gift for the kids or mom and dad.

As you know the hostess will be busy preparing dishes and being gracious to guests.  Take pictures of the turkey on the platter when she’s ready to serve.  The host cooks all day, but never has a picture of the beautiful dishes he or she has prepared before everyone devours them.

Our Thanksgiving scrapbook layouts will help you eliminate that tragedy.  I’m sure the host will be most grateful that you took the time and energy to help preserve the day.  You can download the free Thanksgiving scrapbook layout printables here.  Enjoy.

Printable Scrapbook Page: Summer Page 1

Do you scrapbook?  I started scraping several years ago, and I’m hooked.  I love preserving family memories, especially my grandchildren.  I love grabbing the albums that I’ve completed and sharing the memories with other family.  I always tell a story when I going through them with my grandchildren.  They love hearing about themselves or whomever is in the picture.  We spend hours laughing and reminiscing.   


I have hundreds of pictures that need to be added to books.  I’ve invested in paper, stickers, albums, glue, you name it.  I have the Cricut machine and the cartridges for die cuts.  I love scrapping.

I shop for all my scrapbooking supplies at discount stores or sales at Michael’s.  I’ve found stickers, buttons,albums and paper at Big Lots, Ollies, and the Dollar Store.  You can also find great deals on line. Oriental Trading is a great place to purchase Brads and paper.  Purchase when they have free shipping.  The also have premade scrapbooks for those who are confident in laying out pages just yet.  I look at my pages now versus when I started years and ago, and I’ve come a long way in my creativity.  

Feel free to print this page.  It’s one of my favorites, and would be great to create memories of those beautiful flowers you have growing in your garden this summer.  I will be posting the coordinating page in my next free printable post.

Creating Scrapbooks



March is National Craft Month.  We would like to recognize all of our artisans, crafters and those who indulge as a hobby.  I fall into the later category, I love scrapbooking and creating things for my home.  I was exposed to embroidery at an earlier age.  My grandmother embroidered pillow cases, and I was tasked with wrapping the thread about those little pieces of cardboard.  You know the little pieces of cardboard that identified the thread color.  She also did cross-stitching, which I started years ago. 

I’m also an avid scrapbooker.  The above picture is my grandson, who fell asleep after a Thunderbird’s air show.  My scrapbooking has become an investment.  I should buy stock in stickers, paper, embellishments and the Cricut.  I love to scrapbook my travels and my grandchildren.  I’m currently finishing a scrapbook of my trip to the Martin Luther King Center in Atlanta.  There’s nothing better than creating great memories and being able to flip through a beautiful book as I reminisce.  My family enjoys going through them as well.  I’m hoping to add a sunroom off my kitchen this spring, which I will also use as my craft room. Stay tuned.

What are your favorite crafts?  Is it a hobby or do you sell for profit?  Leave me a comment, I would love to connect with fellow crafters.

A Passion for Scrapbooking

Besides blogging, wine tasting and reading true crime books, I have a passion for scrapbooking.  I have a fortune invested in pictures, so I decided to combine my love for crafts with my pictures and do scrapbooks.  It can become an expensive habit, but I love it.  I decided to purchase the Cricut Expression several months ago, and I absolutely love it.  The cartridges can be expensive, but I’ve been able to purchase mine from ebay at a reasonable amount. 

The layouts are from an airshow that I attended in September with my grandson.  He had a great time watching the USA Air Force Thunderbirds do their thing.  He loves looking at the pictures when he visits, so the scrapbooks are a perfect way to perserve memories of our time together.  

I love using the Cricut for my lettering and die cuts for my scrapbook.  It was a big investment, but well worth the money. I’m currently working on a scrapbook from our visit to the pumpkin patch this fall and a fall wine festival. The two cartridges that I purchased for my fall scrapbooks have great die cuts, so I’m excited about using them.  There are several other cartridges that I’ve placed on my Christmas list.  I’ve been a good girl, so I’m hoping Santa will place a few in my stocking this year.

If you’re a scraper, I would love to hear from you so that we can exchange ideas for layouts and techniques. If you have a Scrapbook Blog, please leave your link. 

I’m A Mountain Momma

It’s been awhile since I’ve attended to my blog.  Just needed to take a break and do me.  During my break, I’ve spent time roaming the local home front taking pictures and scrapbooking which I will share a few photos in a later post.  I love fall, it’s my favorite time of year.  Mother Nature is doing her best work.  The air is crisp and the colors are breath taking.  I thought I would share this photo of the beauty that I’m surrounded by.  So many times I’ve thought of leaving this area and heading toward a more cultured and happening area, but I’ve always found something that made me say it’s worth staying here.  Today its the Blue Ridge mountains.  I’m sure you’re familiar with them, John Denver sung about them in his hit song Country Roads Take Me Home.  Well ladies and gentlemen, this is what he was referring to, the Blue Ridge Mountains and Shenandoah River in the hills of West Virginia.   

Yes, the Blue Ridge Mountains are in my back yard so to speak.  I visit this spot in the fall to clear my head.  As you can see, there’s a breath taking view.  It’s so relaxing and peaceful.  I was never a big fan of John Denver, but I do love his Country Roads song.  It’s a fitting tribute to West Virginia:

Almost heaven, West Virginia   

Blue ridge mountains, Shenandoah River
Life is old there, older than the trees

Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze
Country roads, take me home
To the place, I be-long
West Virginia, mountain momma

We may not be the most cultured state, but we surely have beauty.  Wouldn’t you agree.
