    I'm new to scrapbooking and decided i wanted to make one for my fiancee as our first year together. I don't have many pictures or money to get supplies so i bought a notebook and used craft pieces i had at home buying the occasional supply every now and then. The problem is I'm starting to run out of ideas to fill up the pages. My fiance loves what I have done so far and I'm quite proud of some of the pages but there's so much left. Below are a few of the pages i have done so far all using general things i had laying around, if anyone has any other ideas please let me know

    Hi, welcome to the forum

    What a lovely idea.

    Have you already included pages that represent day trips together? Just thinking collaging bus tickets, entry tickets for days out, photos and your own illustrations that remind you of the day.

    How many pages do you have left?

    to the forum. I love your scrapbook so far, maybe you could add pages about how you first met, why you fell for him, your favourite things to do etc.

    I'm new to this too! I did a similar thing for my uni housemate when we left university. I found it really helpful to structure it chronologically - the story of our university life/friendship! And it's good to think outside the box... after 3 years living together we had a lot of memories, and even simple things like remembering something funny someone said once could turn into a whole page complete with illustrations!

    What about pressing leaves and flowers from the different seasons you spend together?

    They make lovely decorations around pages.

    I've done this for all the concerts I've been to. Ended up putting it in a frame and it takes pride of place
