These are all my scrapbooks. While my outside labeling is a bit on the ghetto side (chipboard shapes tied on the spines with ribbons), it does serve it’s purpose. The first page of each scrapbook was always something I tried to make unique. I used to think of it like a table of contents page of a book as one book used to include a full year or section of a year.
Here’s a few examples of my scrapbook title pages through the years:
In 2007, my title page consisted of 12 circles labeled with the month and color coordinated embellishments. Around the circles, I’d write about highlighted events that filled the pages within the book.

In 2008, I continued this same trend, only this time going for all the black and white embellishments in my collection. I also made sure there was more room to write about these adventures and little notes about the month.

Apparently in 2009, I got a little lazy. I went with these 7 gypsies calendar journaling cards and used them to write in our stories, without any embellishment accents. This really looks more ‘table of contents’ like.

Starting in 2010, I began using a photo to start off the books. This is also the last year that my book truely started on the first of the year. Now, when they get too fully, I just continue onto another book and keep going, with no true stating title page.
