The Power Of Scrapbook Journaling
By journaling your pages you will transform an ordinary
collection of photographs into a vibrant and visual storyboard -
telling the stories behind the pictures, revealing hidden
memories and emotions.
It will give your scrapbooks a unique and intimate feel, it is
this personal touch that turns your albums into something very
That is the power of scrapbooking journaling and why it is one
of the most important elements of your scrapbooks.
What to write?
When you are doing your scrapbook journaling think about the
people who will read it in the future. Try and remember that they
weren't there, give them as many details as you can so that they
can relive your memories and stories for themselves.
One favorite scrapbook journaling technique is to write using
the 5 W's method.
- Who :: who's in the photo, who took it and who else was
present. It is important to name the people in the pictures you
use. People change throughout their lives, especially children,
so it is vital to tell readers who they are looking at.
- What :: what is the photo about? Describe what is
- Where :: where is the event in your photo taking place?
Give some background information.
- When :: when was the photograph taken? Give a specific date
and include the year if possible.
- Why :: why did you use this photo? Does it show a special
event like a wedding or a milestone birthday? Explain why it is
Tell the story?
Don't be afraid of scrapbook journaling. Just ask yourself,
"What would I want to tell future generations about the photos on
my page?" and then write it down.
A tip to remember is that all stories have a beginning, a
middle and an end.
For example, a nice way to start off your scrapbooking
journaling is to give your album a title page. Use one of your
favorite photos and write down who or what your album is about,
you can even include famous sayings, quotes or a special poem if
This leads nicely onto the 'middle' part of your story, the
actual scrapbook pages and when you get to the 'end' make a page
about yourself. Perhaps use a picture of you working on one of
the pages and explain why you have made the scrapbook.
