What is one way you simplify scrapbooking?

I use Instagram to keep track of scrap worthy memories. Instagram is such a great way to share & store your memories. It’s very easy to go around with it, too! It has a lot of cool features and the built-in photo editing is amazing. Uploading a few pictures in a week or daily certainly help me to catch up with my memory keeping. I use a custom hashtag (i.e. my daughter’s name) each time I post in my feed so that I can have a fast reference. Instagram really helps a stay-at-home-mum like me!

What problem does it solve for you?

It saves me time on remembering the details or notes. It also encourages me to print the photos and create layouts & project life spreads.

Why do you think it works so well?

Simply because I can refer to the details on Instagram anytime on my iPhone. Keeping my layouts and project life spreads clean and simple also helps so that I don’t have to spend too much time on each layout or spread.

How can others get started with it?

Consistency is key. If you are using an app like Instagram, be sure that you store your photos and memories on a daily basis or at whenever interval that you can. Also, find a time that works for you consistently so that you can sit down & create on a regular basis. Don’t fall into overthinking as there is no right or wrong way to memory keep.
