Make Your Scrapbooking Efforts Easier With a Journal

By: Vera Raposo

(We would love to give you a journaling-tip to help you along.....)

Journals are a great way to keep track of dates, places, and events that you wish to include in your scrapbooks. You can use a special notebook, PDA, or a calendar to keep track of your scrapbooking ideas.

A journal is also a wonderful way to remember special times in the lives of your friends and family. Amusing thoughts and sentimental feelings can be recorded in your journal to give you ideas for captioning and titles in your scrapbooks.

It is important to keep your journal current. This will save you a lot of time when creating your scrapbook pages. You can write the dates and times of family outings and special occasions such as visits to the zoo, visits from grandparents and other relatives, and make notes as to what each person experienced during these times.

Scrapbooks are more than simple photo albums. They are a chronological history of the places and people that shape our lives.

A journal can keep new scrapbooking ideas fresh in your mind and help you keep your supplies and materials organized.

You do not have to write detailed accounts of every minute of your life in your journal, but instead interesting thoughts and occurrences that will make exciting additions to your scrapbooks and keep memories close at hand.

You can use the information kept in your journal to assist you in organizing your photos in regard to dates and places where the photos were taken, a place to jot down new ideas for scrapbooking themes, and help you keep track of ongoing projects. A journal is very helpful to both casual and professional scrapbookers.
