50 Ideas for Theme Albums

I found this list a LONG time ago among some papers I was throwing out. I wish I knew who the “author” was, but I don’t. It was originally intended for paper scrapping, but works just fine (or even better!) for digital. Please add to this list (in the comments section) if you have any more ideas!!

ETA: Yay! The original author of the list stumbled across my blog. She’s none other than the wonderful Katie the Scrapbook Lady! She has wonderful resources for paper and digiscrappers alike. Be sure to stop by her blog!

  1. This probably falls under a “Life History” album, but I do my foster children’s “Life Books” as digital scrapbooks… Pictures of them when they arrived. A list of favorite foods. Etc. Just a book all about them and the time they lived with our family (and the people they met).

  2. Lynn,

    I think foster parents are *amazing* people. Where do you find the time to foster and do their life books? I know a couple that fosters infants and they always seem so busy caring for the wee one that there isn’t much time left over.

    Yay for you!

  3. What about a blackmail album? You know the album with all of the shots NO ONE would every want you to show anyone else (LOL)! I actually started one of those albums – vbg!
