4 Ways to Include "Bad" Photos on Your Digital Scrapbooking Layout

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 09/09/2021 - 22:00

Over the summer I took some time to consider scrapbooking myths here on the blog. One of the myths I included was needing to have perfect pictures to scrapbook. There can certainly be a lot of pressure to get that perfect photo so you can include it in the scrapbook. But most of us are probably working with less than ideal photos most of the time.

Another month in the scrapbook! April was a pretty relaxed month, and hopefully I enjoyed it because things will be picking up a bit as we head into summer. Here are a few favorite photos from around home, and a quick trip down to San Francisco.

Playing a bit of catch up with my regular posts. I blame my new cutting machine for causing a lot of distraction from my regular routines. But we've made friends and I have a small idea of what I'm doing now, so I can get back to the regular schedule!

It was a good year! I love looking back through all the photos from the year and making a collection of my favorites. We had some fun and exciting trips this year: San Francisco, Victoria, Baltimore, an epic train trip I haven't even mentioned yet, and always time at the coast.

It feels like it's been a busy couple of months. We were on the road from the middle of November, and are only just now back in Oregon and settling into "normal" routines. I find I have quite a lot of things on my to-do list (finish 2015 pocket pages!!) (design stuff!!) (2016 plans!!), but before I get too ahead of myself I wanted to share a few favorite photos from December. We were mostly in Memphis at my parent's, enjoying the sunny weather and eating Christmas cookies.

I've enjoyed in the past joining with a bunch of people on the internet to document a day in the life. It's always fun both to take the pictures and to see all the other photos as they come up during the day on Instagram. Here are my photos from this year:

Back in October I went to Minneapolis for a week, where my sister lives, to hang out. My mom came too and we had a party! If you'll allow, I'll share a couple fun photos...

I struggled in October to take a photo of something that was not either a leaf or my tea cup. #sorrynotsorry

October, what a wonderful month!
