Hello! Lisa here with my first post of the summer. I thought I´d show you some simple ideas on how to scrapbook the current things in your life today. I really like to have glimpses of how our lives are special at this time of our lives in my scrapbooks/Project Life album. Life changes so quickly, right.
In my PL album I like to add things about my teenaged daughter. Now, my daughter is very used to have her photo taken, send me photos etc. But if you have a child that is not comfortable to have their photos taken every other day you might want to search for things that is very them in other places. For example a screen shot of their playlist in Spotify, like shown above. For this I actually caught her computer open with the recent played songs listed and I took a quick photo.
Do you work outside the home? Or do you work at home? Either way, be sure to include a page about how your worklife is right now. Who knows, perhaps that is the one thing we nearly never document in our scrapbooks! But after all we do spend a lot of time at our work places and it is well worth documenting. Above I have a very quick page just showing glimpses of my workdays without nearly any journaling. I have done pages like this with much more journaling and I am sure I will do more of those too. I work with kids so naturally I don´t take photos of their faces and show them on these pages, but that is not the point either. I know many of you have work where cameras are a no-no, but there are ways to work around that. Take a photo of what you bring to work, your commute etc. Or perhaps do a page with just journaling.
In these days most of us communicate electronically. I included the most used emojis I had used texting in one of my PL spreads. For this I simply opened a new text message on my phone, clicked to show the emojis and took a screen shot and printed.
A last tip: try to write down the books or perhaps magazines you read in a period of time. For a recent spread in PL I listed the books I had read since January. I bet you'd be suprised of how many you have read! I was!
I hope these tips can inspire you this summer!
Ps. I just wanted to shortly mention that I have changed my last name just the other month. I have returned to my maiden name Borbély and if you are searching for me online you might need to know that :)
Oh, and here is my new blog as well!
