Have you tried the new products from K & Co, called Smash? I have, and I must say that it's not a masterpiece, far from, but it's not supposed to be one:
You're meant to just smash in little bits and pieces in your book - pics, tickets, receipts, doodles, you name it! - and let it be a true scrapbook. What I like about this one is that you can bring it with you wherever you go, because there is a pen/gluestick that goes with the book, which makes it easy to smash at any time.
I've used one of the pads from Smash - Family - and a piece of the tape that is availiable ("Like a lot") as well as some materials from Pyssloteket - ribbons and alphabet stickers from My Little Shoebox.
The picture is of me, 21 years ago, when I graduated upper secondary/high school. My nickname was Junior, because I was the youngest in our class (I have always been). ;)
Now I'm off to enjoy yet another day of my summer holidays...
