Scrapping About the Internet

The Internet is such a big part of our daily lives now. I toured the galleries and found some great examples by scrapbookers who captured parts of their online lives.

Some Inspiration

Pinterest: Pinterest is a popular topic among scrappers! It’s a great example of something that wasn’t here just last year and now occupies a lot of our time.

Connectivity: How you connect to the Internet is an interesting topic to capture for your kids. What is cutting edge right now, will be old news very soon.

Blogging: People with blogs spend a lot of time on them. It’s interesting to document what you blog about and why.

Ideas

Here are a few ideas for web related pages:

  • Do you remember your favourite Internet sites from last year? From 5 years ago? From 10 years ago? How much have they changed over the years?
  • There are some sites that you may go to everyday. Perhaps your web-based email, Facebook, Pinterest, or CNN. Have you every documented this daily ritual?
  • Your go-to resources for cooking, research or something else?
  • Have you ever met one of your online friends in real life?
  • There are quite a few couples who first “met” online and later married. Are you one of them?
  • Describe your current computer and Internet connection. In 10 years, you’ll probably laugh about it!
  • Do you use any “net speak”? Do your kids?
  • Are you a member of a digi scrap community? How has the Net connected you to this hobby?

As for pictures, here are a few ideas:

  • If you’re scrapping about a web site, try using your PRINT SCREEN button to capture a screen shot and then pasting it as a new layer in your scrapbook page.
  • The Windows 7 “snipping tool” can be used to capture selected bits of pages.
  • Use your web cam to capture a shot of your surfing the Net and scrap with it.
  • Have somebody take a photo of you at your computer.
  • Take a photo of your current computer and desk, if you use one.
  • Use your current profile image from your favourite scrapbooking sites.

Happy scrapping!
