Creative Journaling: What Do I Say In My Scrapbooks?

Journaling is an essential part of scrapbooking. It can also be a very intimidating part. There's really nothing to be afraid of. If you've never been "a writer," there are some simple techniques that can be used to get some journaling in your scrapbooks.

The biggest misconception is that journaling has to be paragraphs of text telling witty and elegant stories. Nothing can be farther from the truth. Here are some alternative ideas for journaling to get those creative juices flowing:

  1. Ask yourself a few questions about your photos. Who?, What?, When?, Where? Why? Answering some of these will make the words flow.
  2. Make lists in your scrapbook. (Examples: "Jessica's Favorite Things", "Tops Ten Reason I Love You", "List of Jenny's Birthday Gifts", "Billy's Current Vocabulary")
  3. Let your children do some journaling for you. Have your kids write or dictate a story around a particular page or event. These stories will be priceless in the years to come.
