While You Were Gone

Printable Scrapbook Templates for Alienated Families

Available for instant download on Etsy

I have a long family history of alienation and only when I went through my own gruelling divorce, did I become aware of the term parental alienation and the horrifying extent to which families are affected by it all over the world. Since I founded www.fairdivorce.co.za in 2015, I have been mentoring, researching and networking globally to create awareness, educate and put a stop to it wherever possible.

For years I’ve felt immense sadness for the innocent children, parents, grandparents, extended family members and even friends who’s lives were ripped apart by vindictive and bitter individuals. Alienation is rife and with the exception of a few success stories there is still generally very little that can be done about it.

My gift to you, is this collection of scrapbook templates with which you can record the precious memories, special occasions, celebrations, rituals etc. for your alienated family member. Please watch the videos to learn more about the concept, ideas and creative suggestions for the various designs and do whatever your heart desires. I would love to see how it turns out, so please share your process & photos via info@fairdivorce.co.za.

  • There are a variety of templates to choose from for every season of the year: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
  • Cover pages were also designed for each season to use as you wish.
  • On the right hand edge of the templates are tabs for you to name and cut out as indicated in the demo videos and examples: Twelve tabs for each month of the year and three tabs for each month of the season.
  • The small and large size envelopes come with full instructions to cut out, fold and glue together. Please refer to the demo videos as well. Use them to keep photos and any other special items safely.
  • The design and calendar on each page allows you to start right now or at any time of the week, month or year, whenever you are ready or when you have something special to record.
  • My invitation to you, is to use the time and effort you put into recording your family’s memories, as a healing practice, honouring yourself & the trauma of alienation you are experiencing while also creating a beautiful ritual of self-care and spiritual connection with your loved one(s) while they are gone.

I’ve uploaded a few short videos to show you more.

Wishing you peace, wisdom and reunification as soon as possible!
