5 Digital Scrapbooking Trends in 2024

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 02/28/2024 - 22:00

As a digital scrapbooking enthusiast for over a decade, I've witnessed and adapted to the remarkable evolution of this art form. My personal style has grown and changed in tandem with industry trends and global influences. As we move through the year, I'm particularly excited about several developments and ideas in digital scrapbooking. Here are five key trends and personal interests that are shaping my creative journey in 2024.

1. Embracing Mixed Media Digital Art

The world of mixed media digital art is easy to find, bringing together diverse artistic mediums into what I see as a lot of fun. My inclination towards mixed media is fueled by its inherent 'rule-breaking' nature. This style allows me to explore a 'messy' yet artistic approach, challenging my traditional views on layout design and encouraging a free-flowing, imaginative form of expression.

2. The Rise of AI-Assisted Designs
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the way we create art, offering almost boundless possibilities in digital expression. My initial attraction to digital scrapbooking was driven by the freedom it provided - the ability to create my own supplies rather than being limited to what's available in stores. AI takes this freedom to a new level, enabling the realization of any conceivable design idea with ease and precision.

3. The Timeless Appeal of Vintage Elements

Not a new trend, but something I'm personally interested in, is the inclusion of vintage elements in my designs and layouts. It’s a beautiful way to blend the old with the new, paying homage to the history of scrapbooking.

4. The Convenience of Digital Planners
Planners have been trending for a while now, and you don't have to go physical to enjoy this trend. Digital planners are more than a passing fad; they represent a practical and stylish approach to organization and creativity. My digital planner has become an indispensable tool, and I'm eager to explore and integrate more features and designs as the year unfolds.

5. The Charm of Digital Notebooks
In the past I have loved paper scrapbooking in notebooks, which I always found to be an intimate and focused way to scrapbook. Even though For the time being while traveling I have transitioned to exclusively digital crafting, but I haven’t had to abandon the beloved notebook format. Digital notebooks offer a compact and thematic space for scrapbooking, allowing me to maintain a clear focus on specific themes or stories.

As I continue my journey in digital scrapbooking, these trends and personal interests not only shape my creations but also reflect the dynamic and ever-evolving nature of this art form. I look forward to sharing more of my adventures and creations with you as the year progresses.
