Scrapping in Season

The great thing about digital scrapbooking is that you don’t have to do it in any order. You can scrap about your son’s preschool years and wedding all in one sitting. There are no rules! That said, I have to admit that I love to scrap “in season” – meaning that I scrap about the current season I’m experiencing in real life. I think it’s only natural to want to relive fall memories when the leaves around you are changing. Not to mention that all the digital designers are releasing products that are just perfect for this time of year!

If you feel like your scrapping is in a rut, consider scrapping along with the seasons as they occur. Fall is the perfect time to try out this technique because there is so much going on during the months of autumn. Here are some great ideas and examples to get you motivated.

School’s in Session

Fall is definitely a time for education. Early fall means back to school and that can inspire a whole new batch of digi scrapping. New routines, milestones, school pictures, and class subjects, provide plenty of scrapbooking material.

Changing Colors

In the northern hemisphere, leaves are changing colors as they get ready to fall off in preparation for colder months. The southern hemisphere is just blooming into spring after the winter season. Either way, the colors are vibrant at this time of year. Let nature guide you to scrap those seasonal photos!

Seasonal Activities

There are certain activities that go along with this time of year; apple picking, corn mazes, pumpkin patch visits, and more! Why not scrap these events (even from past years) around the same time they are happening? The memories will be fresh in your mind and it will be easy to find great supplies to help you document them.

Harken the Holidays

Fall holidays are perfect for scrapbookers! Halloween is such a visually fun celebration with costumes, decorations, and candy – so easy to scrap! Thanksgiving is filled with family and good food. Plenty of time to swap old stories. Get out a tape recorder or jot down some notes while you are at this year’s feast.

While it’s true that I can scrap about these occasions any time during the year, I’m much more likely to do so when the season is in line with my creations. How about you? Do you scrap in season, or does that even matter to you? There’s no right or wrong answer, just some food for thought!
