Ah, I see what you mean. Josh and I took about 20 zillion pictures our first year, so we forgot about over half the ones I used in the scrapbook. Plus I put random ones in there of our dog and my cat that we liked to harass (R.I.P. Lucifer:().
There are all sorts of creative, crafty things you could do. You could hand draw a calendar, bind it together yourself, and do it scrapbook-y type things in it (pictures, stickers, marking specific dates, etc.). On our two year anniversary I took notecards and wrote "I love you" in any language I could find and hid the notecards all around his bedroom/bathroom/vehicle, also for that anniversary I made him a penguin at Build-A-Bear, lol. Ooh, for his birthday once I got him a promise ring (he got me one for Christmas '05, he got his for his birthday in July '06) and I hid the ring in a box full of HUNDREDS of itty bitty pieces of construction paper and each piece of paper had a different thing I loved about him written on it. I'm not saying you'd have to get him a ring, of course (lol), but the pieces of paper thing is something he loved.
