The Theme and Title of Your New Scrapbook
The theme of your scrapbook can be simple or complex. Your
theme could be a special event such as a birthday, a baby shower,
a wedding, Christmas, or Halloween. Themes can also be
personalized to the scrapbook recipient's special interests.
Special interests themes include favorite colors, sports,
favorite television programs, music, the outdoors, or cultural
What is the overall purpose for your scrapbook?
Who is the scrapbook for?
Who is the scrapbook about?
The answers to these three questions are all factors in
selecting an appropriate theme. For instance, the scrapbook you
are giving your nephew as he graduates from medical school is
probably completely different than the grandparent book you send
your mother. Your nephew will probably appreciate a scrapbook
with photographs, poems, journals, and more masculine
embellishments. Perhaps, the theme of the scrapbook could be
medicine. You could create embellishments that looked like
scalpels and tweezers around various pictures of your nephew
during his college years.
Your mother, on the other hand, will love a multitude of baby
pictures fancifully embellished with flowers, ribbon, and baby
fingerprints. The theme of this book will probably be your baby.
Photographs could include baby and grandma with the baby. A nice
journal about your baby's day could also add a nice touch
Don't forget to create a title for your scrapbook page. Though
adding a title might seem to be obvious or unimportant, a title
defines the whole basis of your scrapbook. The title instantly
tells the viewer what your page is all about. In one word or one
short phrase, the title tells the reader the theme and purpose of
Titles can be as basic as the date of an event, the name of an
individual, or a specific event.
Titles can also be more interesting and exciting. These can
include quotes, sayings, fillers, or simple phrases. The best
places to look for title inspiration are in greeting cards,
advertisements, and commercials.

I wish that I had a nickel for each time I've been asked

think that someone is going to knock on their door with a
search warrant if they don't use the exact colors a
designer used in the test sew out or the color numbers used
in the stitch directions. Not so - if you don't "think
outside the box" and use colors that you enjoy, or just
prefer, you are really missing the real fun of machine
embroidery! Come to think of it, I don't believe that I've
ever used the exact color on any design I've ever stitched
in 6+ years-some because I didn't have the exact color
