In part 2 of the bucket list series let’s look at creating a bucket list of pages you’d like to scrapbook.
Did you miss part 1? That’s where we created at a bucket list of techniques you’d like to use. See PART 1 HERE.
2. Create a Scrapbooking Project Bucket List
Let’s make a list of specific scrapbooking projects you’d like to complete.
This can be layouts, mini books, whole albums, whatever kind of crafty project you’d like to create can go onto this list.
1. It’s helpful to have a list of projects you’d like to complete. This gives you a jumping off point when you have time to scrapbook. It also shows you what kinds of projects are important to you right now.
2. It’s good for days when you don’t know what to scrap. Sometimes you are just not sure where to start. If you have a pre-made list of page ideas that you would like to complete you can see which idea sparks your interest and scrapbook something that truly inspires you.
Scrapbooking something that truly excites you is the best way to stay motivated to keep scrapbooking. These are the pages that you will be the most creative with. You’ll find your ideas flow much easier when you want to scrapbook something and you aren’t trying to complete a project because you ‘have to’.
3. If you have a list you can add to it when you see a good idea. You know how Pinterest can be a vacuous time suck of pretty pictures? (It’s not just me, right?) When you look up, you realize that you have been staring at, and pinning, other people’s amazing ideas for hours and you still haven’t completed your project, or found that pin you were looking for? Oops!
If you have a bucket list of page ideas you can jot down great ideas for later, that way you don’t have to get sucked into the Pinterest vortex the next time you are looking for inspiration.
The bucket list is also perfect for those times you are talking to your friends and catch yourself saying, “I should totally scrapbook that!”
