Scrapbooking to Remember

Scrapbooking for a Lifetime

We can keep hundreds of photographs on our technological devices, but having a physical record of these moments caught on camera is something unique. Scrapbooking is an excellent method to conserve photographs and honor the memory of a loved one who has died. Here are some suggestions for making a lovely scrapbook that may be passed down through the generations.

Collect your supplies

To begin, decide which photographs you want to print for your scrapbook. Reliving memories shared with your loved one while scrolling through photographs on your computer or phone is also a fantastic way to do so. Choose images of them that remind you of happy times. Make a folder with all of these photographs and submit them to be printed. You’ll also need a book and scrapbook paper, both of which may be purchased at any craft store.

Set Up Your Creativity Center

Scrapbooking may take up a lot of room, so set aside a spot in your home for it, such as an empty desk or a spare bedroom. Scrapbooking should be a peaceful activity, and candles and a warm blanket can help to create a soothing ambiance. Putting on your favorite music might also assist you in entering the creative zone.

Assemble each of the pages

Putting your photographs in chronological sequence is a great approach to put a scrapbook together that honors someone’s life. Four to five photographs can be shown on each scrapbook page. Each page will have its own theme whether you use photos from the same event, location, or time period. After you’ve organized your photographs, you may adorn them with stickers, gel pens, and markers, or any other decorations you choose. Writing captions for pictures that describe who is in the picture and what is occurring can help you remember each moment and pass the information on to future generations.

Tell your friends and family about it.

One of the most satisfying aspects of scrapbooking is being able to show off your hard work to friends and family. People who knew your loved one, as well as others who never met them, will enjoy reminiscing with you as they flip through the lovely pages you’ve prepared.

Thank you Jim Geils

To all the families that have supported my father, Jim, throughout his 45 years as a funeral director, I hope you will continue to let me serve you moving forward.

Filling my father’s shoes, will not be an easy task and something I will forever strive for; however, he has given me the knowledge, guidance, experience and lasting relationships within the funeral industry that will hopefully make this transition possible.

He was my confidant, superior but mostly my biggest fan. I know he will be with me always, leading and guiding me to be the best funeral director I can be.

I will continue my father’s legacy as best and for as long as I can, with your love, help and support.
