Hello October! This month I am guest teaching over at Masterful Scrapbook Design, where alongside four other super talented paper and digital scrapbookers, I am sharing my tips and tricks for scrapbooking one of my favorite topics: pop culture!
I’ve never been one to shy away from including pop culture in my scrapbooking pages, whether it’s professing my love for reality TV…
Or my current obsession with Pinterest…
I’m all about keeping it real when it comes to documenting my pop culture loves in my scrapbooks.
So in preparation for this class I’ve been thinking a lot about different ways I can get my love for pop culture and our current world into my scrapbooks.
Traci and I had always imagined this page to be used as a kind of pop culture overview – a way to take a snapshot of the world as it is right now.
So that’s exactly what I chose to do thanks to a little help from Google and this super adorable kit by Penny Springmann.
Could you imagine how fun it would be to have a page like this from your parents? Or even your grandparents?
Granted they wouldn’t be documenting their top website, haha, but it makes me wonder, what would they have documented?
Which is exactly why I love scrapbooking pop culture and the world around us. Because with the rate at which our world is constantly changing, what’s popular today, may be gone tomorrow.
And hey, in case you’re in need of some extra pop culture inspiration for using the Embellish Now: This Day In History template in a different way, check out this AMAZING layout Sweet Shoppe Designer Julie Billinglsey made, documenting 15 facts about her son’s freshman year in college:
Is that not totally awesome?!
I absolutely LOVE her theme, her title work and the way she added an extra row of photos so she had room for all 15 facts. I can definitely think of a bunch of variations on the “facts” theme I’d love to scrapbook with this template, so thanks so much for the inspiration Julie!
How about you? Are you a pop culture scrapbooker like me or do you love to keep your scrapbooking to holidays and everyday moments? Have you done any pop culture scrapbooking lately? Professed your undying love for your current pop culture obsession? Let me know in the comments!
