Glitter Girl and the scrapbooking mystery of memorabilia

In her first adventure, Glitter Girl comes to the rescue of Chrispeas, who shares her concern with organising and scrapbooking a mountain of memorabilia. (See the discussion here.)

Along her adventure, Glitter Girl tackles storage solutions, finds useful products and creates a scrapbook page with new year memorabilia.

scrapbooking shadow box with wedding memorabilia Click here for supplies.

For pretty pieces of memorabilia you would like to keep out and enjoy, a shadow box or printer’s tray from 7gypsies may be just the thing. Just cut photos to size then stack on the memorabilia you would like to save. This box is tiny (the large photo is just smaller than 4×6) and includes tulle from a bridal veil, a wedding favour and ribbons from the wedding stationery, plus the four photographs.

Pockets are handy for adding memorabilia to scrapbook pages, and this new pack is especially cute. Glitter Girl used the smallest and largest size from that set on this layout. (And I am rather excited to have my first page in our 2012 album!)

Any more ideas for memorabilia you would like to share? Please do! Glitter Girl would love to hear from you in the comments. And she challenges you to share a layout or a photo of your memorabilia storage system in the gallery this week.

Onward, covered in glitter, my dear scrapbookers!

adventures of glitter girl :: scrapbooking super hero
The Adventures of Glitter Girl is a weekly series on Two Peas in a Bucket, and goes live every Wednesday. I’ll share each adventure here shortly after that. I hope you enjoy her quests for crafting happiness, and if you ever have a scrapbooking dilemma yourself, you can always call her to action on the message board.

    I usually keep an empty (Cheap) album with my photos and memorabilia together. Then when I do my layout – I use what I want, but adhere any extra memorabilia to the backside, with a little subtle note in a corner.
    PS: I do this with original photos that I alter or enlarge/shrink – use the one I produced on the front – the original on the flipside. Where is there a better place to keep these than in an acid free environment?

    Do you really have pink hair or is that a wig, lol?

  4. Joy Says:

  5. Bunnyfreak Says:

    Love that you shared information on why you made the choices you did: grey doilly, triangle of elements, etc.
    Glitter girl rocks!!

  6. Melinda T Says:

    Fun video! Thanks for sharing and inspiring! You’re so awesome Shimelle! :D

  7. Jenn Serrano Says:

    LOVE LOVE LOVE your new video series, Glitter Girl to the rescue!!!! I was laughing so loud, but also the video was packed with great info. Because I have been doing project life for 3 years now, I have a basket in my dinning room just to store epherma, then if it doesn’t get added to project life, it goes into large plastic bags to the scrap room. Once a month I review my stash and purge the stuff if I can’t see a use for it in the future. Thanks again, Glitter Girl.

    Love the new series – perfect start to a new year of scrappiness! And very timely as I was just wondering how to incorporate the hospital band from my new baby boy on to a page without simply gluing it down!

    Oh what fun! Even thou I’m not a fan of glitter, I LOVED your first GG video. Looking forward to more. Thanks!

  17. Chipper Says:

    I often use extra page protectors with pockets to hold memorabilia as we seem to collect lots of tickets, stubs and maps on our adventures.

    Just waiting for the video to load from You Tube and then I shall be painting my nails glittery silver while watching :-)
