Scrapbooking the Cultural Changes

What about life has changed since you were a kid? A whole lot, right?

Have you thought to document these changes?

On this week’s Paperclipping Roundtable, Heidi Swapp, Ali Edwards, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and I gabbed about a bunch of the changes we’ve noticed, both the small and silly, along with the larger philosophical ones.

Here are some of the scrapbook pages I’ve made to tell some of those stories…

Swings & Slides

You can click on the top two layouts to read the journaling. For each of these three layouts I found at least one old photo from my childhood to stand side-by-side with current ones.

Paperclipping members can watch a tutorial where I put much of this layout together. Look for Paperclipping 166 – How to Use Repetition in Your Scrapbooking.

Waiting and Waiting...

Paperclipping members can see how this page comes together in Paperclipping 171 – Balance an Asymmetrical Layout.

A Story of Family Time - Then & Now

Note: this last layout is a pretty close scraplift of one Ali Edwards made for her Yesterday & Today class.

Fun, huh?

    Love the idea behind these layouts! I’ve been scanning in a lot of old photos that I want to scrap, but I hadn’t thought about making a layout comparing then to now.

    Lovely pages! Especially love the simplicity of the third page with all the butterflies!
