Believe it or not, there are plenty of things that you can incorporate into a Super Bowl scrapbook to make it both fun and memorable.

Start out by taking pictures of the party setup. The decorations, the food, the favors…you get the picture. Once the friends and family arrive, take photos of everyone gathering together. Don’t forget snapshots of everyone’s team gear as they wear it for good luck! When the game starts, take a few snapshots of everyone watching the game. With each exciting play, you can capture the moments when people jump out of their seats, cheer, hug, hoot, and holler. Trust us – it’s an exciting experience that you can look forward to every year!

Once you have all of your photos, put together the scrapbook pages with a team theme. Include colors, sports caption stickers, pictures, etc. that involve both teams that  year and with each passing football season, you can update your scrapbook with a few more pages. If you’re the type the loves to celebrate the Super Bowl, then this scrapbooking idea is sure to be a hit.

Celebrate National Get Organized Month

Photo Storage Box

Alright – it’s time to finally do it. It’s the perfect time to actually sit down and do something with those piles of photos and oodles of scrapbooking supplies. It’s time to put things together. It’s time to simplify. It’s time to get organized.

January is National Get Organized Month and to make things easy, MemoryScrapbooks.com has put together a list of must-have scrapbook and photo organization supplies. With a little bit of time – and with these photo organizers – it’ll be easy to get your scrapbooking area neat and tidy.

Let’s get started:

Photo organization boxes: First off, you should start by going through your photos. Toss out the ones that got developed but are away too dark or out of focus to use. Then, catalog your photos by event (or other criteria) in one of our photo organization boxes. They’re archival safe and perfect for getting those piles of photos in order after they’ve sat in a drawer or shoebox.

Scrapbooks and photo albums: Want an even better way to organize those favorite photos? Make scrapbooks or put them into albums! You can easily fill up any of our scrapbooks or photo albums with embellishments and snapshots so that they can be enjoyed and displayed, instead of packed away.

Photo storage boxes: Besides organizing and storing photos, our photo storage boxes are also perfect for packing away leftover scrapbooking supplies, embellishments, adhesives, or other crafting essentials. Choose from different sizes and designs to find the one that’s best for you.

How do you get organized?
