Say Goodbye to Generic Scrapbook Page Ideas
Scrapbook Page Idea
This is the reverse of how most scrapbooks are done.
Lifewriting and journaling prompts are, hands down, the greatest source for scrapbook
page layout ideas!
So many times, we get rapped up with all the photos and embellishments that we forget about
the stories behind all those photos. Not to discount the pictures, but it's a combination
of the pictures and the life stories that will be of the highest interest to our children.
Instead of filling a page with so many pictures with captions and embellishments, reduce the pictures to a few per page. Then
intermingle them with stories and events from your life.
Writing about our lives can be very overwhelming,
but it's important to remind ourselves that we needn't have an "all or nothing" attitude
about it. Some is better than nothing!
Only Use Writing Prompts that Create a Response in You!
When you begin looking through journaling
prompts and questions, pick out the ones that "speak to you". Choose the prompts that have the most meaning to you. The journaling prompts used should bring back memories that
create a response in you!
From Journaling Prompt to Page Ideas to Scrap!
After selecting a prompt, follow these steps
to create a page layout idea to scrap...
Begin writing down notes and jotting down memories that the life story
prompt brings back. Write down all that the prompt causes you to recall. Don't hold back
and censor your writing.
Write out all of your answers, first, before
you begin putting your layouts together.
Consider this your rough draft.
Once you have written down your material, begin selecting the photos that you will want to include in your scrapbook page layout. These
will support what you wrote.
Pictures do not need to depict the exact event you describe in your writing. A picture of you
from the approximate same time will work fine.
This is the reverse of how most
scrapbooks are done.
Scrapbooking from the inside-out requires
one to dig inside themselves for the story
first and then allow the pictures to support what
Now choose your pictures and begin designing your page
layout. Do just one layout at a time and
bask in the memories.
Create Your Own Scrapbooking Experience
Journaling and life story prompts allow us
to create our own scrapbooking experience!
It will be an intense and exciting time!
This is your scrapbook so don't allow
sterile scrapbook templates to dictate what your
page will contain. Let the ideas come from
within you and then build around that.
Your pages will have much more meaning and you'll enjoy your time much more.
And you thought you were addicted to this stuff before!

old friends that you've lost contact with that you'd like to see again"
I don't know about you, but my mind is already
churning out names, places and fun times! I see images of faces that I haven't seen in years
and recall names my lips haven't spoken for the same
amount of time.
Today's mobile society makes this prompt work
more today than ever before. Many people

...Using the example question above, Begin writing down...
Names of old friends
When you knew each other and how long it's been
Why they were so special to you
The fun times you had together

long lost friends with whom you've lost contact with. Next, type your paragraph on the computer
and print it in narrow columns, just like you see in newspapers.

those friends from days gone by. Use pictures
of just them or, better yet, use a picture of
the two of you together.
