In this post, we'll explore some of the best online destinations where you can find free digital scrapbooking materials, from papers and embellishments to fonts and templates.

For fonts, FontSquirrel is my go-to resource. It offers an extensive collection of free fonts in various styles, all allowing commercial use. You can find the perfect for adding that special touch to your scrapbook.

Canva isn’t just for designing; it also has a large library of free graphics, photos, and elements that can be incorporated into your scrapbook. The drag-and-drop interface makes it user-friendly, especially for beginners.

My February 2024 Digital Scrapbooking Update

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 03/20/2024 - 23:00

A little update about how my scrapbooking is going.

Digital Pocket Album
I'm thrilled to share that I'm embarking on my tenth year of creating a digital pocket album. It's become such an ingrained part of my routine that I hardly give it a second thought anymore—I simply keep moving forward. You can read about my digital pocket scrapping process here.

I love how using the pocket pages takes the stress out of scrapping important events. February included both Iona's birthday and my sister's wedding, and I already have the photos scrapped and in this year's album.

On This Day Journal
I like to go back in time and choose a picture from the current date, but in the past. I love revisiting these memories and keeping it limited to a day helps me focus.
