Scrapbooking Bucket List Part 1

Do you know what a bucket list is?

It’s a list of things to do before you die, or before you ‘kick the bucket’.

Yeah, it’s kind of morbid.

But, it’s also kind of brilliant.

Whether you agree with the idea of a bucket list or not, it all comes down to creating a list of things that you would like to do… sometime. Call it what you like; bucket list, goals, to-do list, hope to do’s, I should’s, but be sure to make a list!

In this 3 part series we will look at 3 ways you can make bucket lists a part of your scrapbooking.

1. Create a Technique Bucket List

1. Do you have a list of things you’ve been wanting to try in your scrapbooks?

Have you considered creating your own scrapbooking bucket list?

Want to see what’s on my ‘Scrapbooking Bucket List of Techniques I Want to Use’?

  • Use a map.
  • Doodle.
  • Create a watercolour background.
  • Make a page with 10+ photos.
  • Make a page NO photos.
  • Use ink drops.
  • Figure out alcohol ink.
  • Scraplift your current favourite designer.
  • Make a monochromatic page.
  • Make a page with LOTS of white space.
  • Scrap a photo from today.
  • Make a collage of photos.
  • Create a hybrid scrapbook page.
  • Make a page with OLD product.
  • Create a page in 20 minutes.


Having a list of techniques or styles you’d like to use in your scrapbooking will help you:

1. Be more creative! This list will help you to challenge yourself to try something new. When you see an idea you’d like to replicate add it to your list.

2. Get past scrapbooker’s block. When you can’t figure out what you’d like to do, or where to start a scrapbook page, take a look at your list and try something new. This is a great way to begin a page!

3. Create variety in your books. Have you ever worried that all of your pages look the same? You won’t have to worry about that if you mix some different styles and techniques into your albums once in a while.

4. Stay motivated. Trying something new is the best way to stay motivated to keep scrapbooking. Doing the same thing all of the time can become monotonous and boring. Scrapbookers that have been scrapbooking for years are often people that try new styles, techniques and play with new trends.


I’m starting to cross things off of my technique bucket list. Check out the ink drops I used on this layout!

    Love this idea, and your hair looks great pink! Very few folks can really look good with that. I am dark brunette, and to try to do that kind of stuff to my hair would be very hard on it…bleach in stages, do colors in stages…yeah, not for me. Besides, I like my hair color, so, why mess with it!
    Love your blog, I don’t comment often, but I really do enjoy your creativity!
