When was the last time that you made a scrapbook? I’ve got a few gifts to make for friends that have summer birthdays and I’m thinking of making them scrapbooks. I have SO many pictures of great times together, and I think my friends would love to receive a personalized and unique gift celebrating our friendship. For my scrapbook gifts, I want to do a great job and impress my friends. If you aren’t sure where to begin, I recommend Wendy’s Fresh Pic’d Summer app, which is a fun and easy way to get a scrapbook going in minutes. I’ve pulled together some tips to keep in mind as you create.

    Scrapbooking is the best! I keep my supplies in a giant plastic Caboodle (remember those?). Another great tool for scrapbooking if you don’t have a lot of money: cutting out pictures from magazines.

    That app looks perfect for unorganized people like myself! Seriously, my idea of organizing in having random loose pictures of my oldest daughter all mixed up in a box…
