What is Practical Scrapbooking?

by | Productivity Advice | 0 comments

One of my biggest passions is helping YOU get your memories documented. I don’t want scrapbooking, in whatever form you choose, to stress you out. I want it to be easier for you.

I’ve been thinking about a particular flavor of simple scrapbooking lately, that can help with that ease: practical scrapbooking.

What is Practical Scrapbooking?

Practical scrapbooking helps you get pages D-O-N-E. It emphasizes moving forward and feeling accomplished, above other benefits.

Practical scrapbooking eliminates distractions and focuses on storytelling.

Practical scrapbooking is about efficient process over fancy product.

Practical scrapbooking invites you to suspend perfectionism in favor of progress.

It’s so easy to get caught up in the ‘glamour’ of the online scrapbooking community that we sometimes act in anything-but-practical ways.

We waste time surfing for ideas, when we have them inside of us.

We shop too much, when we have plenty of good things to work with.

We struggle with inferiority, when our personal best is more than good enough.

Practical scrapbooking can offer incredible clarity, wisdom and support if its anything-but-easy for you right now. Why not give it a whirl?

P.S. The Everyday Storyteller idea books share more than 200 why-didn’t-I-think-of-that ideas for practical paper and digital scrapbooking.
