In honor of the Oscars last night, we want to share with you 5 movies where scrapbooking saves the day:
This one is a personal favorite of ours at Close To My Heart! In this heart-warming Best Picture nominee from a few years ago, the pages of a scrapbook remind an elderly man named Carl about how good his life has been, while also showing him that adventure is still out there!
A famous New York playwright blames her spunky southern mother for her unhappy childhood, sparking a long-distance feud, but reconciliation is ultimately found after the daughter learns more about her mother’s past from an old scrapbook.
While looking through photos and scrapbooks from her unusually long life, the ageless title character of this film resolves to embrace the present, recognizing that true happiness comes from the relationships she has shared with others.
In this Oscar-nominated film from 1948, figures from a scrapbook come to life and encourage an orphan boy named Jeremiah to work hard and never give up on his dreams.
A picture torn from a wedding scrapbook becomes the key to reuniting twin sisters who have grown up in separate households and meet by chance at summer camp.
From encouragement to reconciliation to celebrating relationships, this small selection of movies really shows what scrapbooking is all about! Did we miss any good scrapbooking movies? Tell us about your favorites in the comments! And the next time someone asks you why you scrapbook, be proud! Tell them it’s your way of saving the day. 🙂
