Studio Rosey Posey – Autumn Time. Code Light font.
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.

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!

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.

Daily Digi resources for scrapping fall holidays:
- Scrapping Halloween
- This is Halloween
- Photographing kids at Halloween
- Gather memories
- Gather up some journaling
- Scrapping Thanks and Thanksgiving
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!
I am so excited about October’s Digi Files! We have a GREAT lineup with a variety of styles, some new-to-us designers, and some designers that are joining us once again! This month, in The Digi Files, we have:
One Little Bird Designs
Little Green Frog Designs
Wendy Tunison Designs
Studio Rosey Posey
This month is also special because it marks the launch of the “Daily Digi Digest” podcast. This podcast is something I’ve wanted to do for several years and something YOU have been asking for! We are finally doing it!
There will be a podcast released on the first day of each month, as well as on some designer feature days. We will be interviewing the contributing designers that are able to join us and adding that episode of the podcast to their feature. Katie will join me for some of the recordings, when her schedule permits. Not all of the designers are able to do the interviews due to scheduling, language barriers, as well as a variety of other things. We know you will love hearing from the designers that are able to join us though!
You will find the podcast player in the designer features under this image:
We would love to have you subscribe to the show in iTunes (even if you don’t have an iDevice), listen to the shows, and leave us a review. We will also be adding this show to Stitcher soon. You can listen here on the site as well, in the player above.
In The Digi Files this month, we have SEVEN full size products (never released in digiland before) from fabulous designers for only $7.50 (less when you become an annual member)! It’s an UNBELIEVEABLE deal and the BEST deal in digital scrapbooking! Here is a look at the designers for this month:

Hello, I am so glad I became a member as I am loving the Digifiles! I do not get to scrap often so I look for great templates to help maximize my time. I really enjoy the templates you provide… the beautiful kits are great as well. I have told a few friends who are considering going digi about your site. Thank you for all you do! Have a great day! Cris
