How digital scrapbookers document their holidays


In our community of digital scrapbookers, there are many different ways to document our lives on a page. There’s no “right” or “wrong” way to digiscrap – we love all methods of memory keeping! There’s also a wide variation in the way we all celebrate this holiday filled time of year. Again, it is not a one size fits all situation. Different religious beliefs, cultural ideals, and personal preferences mean that there are multiple ways to make memories. One of the great benefits of gallery surfing is that we get to take a peek into everyone else’s lives and enjoy their experiences as well.

Here are some of the ways digital scrapbookers are documenting this holiday season:

Amy Jaz’s clean & simple December Daily pages are a great showcase for the everyday holiday-related celebrations her family is enjoying.



Stacia Hall created a collage type of page about the holiday music that isa central part of her traditions.
