Scrapbook using Infographics

Use Infographics to Journal

You see infographics everywhere these days. Those catchy pic’s with pithy phrasing next to them. Short and sweet, infographics make the information fun and quick to read.

You can use that same method in your journaling. Assemble your pictures, add some fun “graphics” and make your own “infographic” style scrapbook page. Here are a few examples:

Moving?: tell it like an infographic

Ideas for Scrapbook Page Storytelling with a Timeline | Audrey Tan | Get It Scrapped


Audrey Tan says, “This page is about my move to India and how it all began. I used of arrows representing specific times (in month and year) moving vertically down the page to tell my story. Each arrow points to a picture and has details printed on the arrow.”

You can do this type of page with any event: Vacations, birthdays, anniversaries, current school year pics and events, the list is endless.

Katie Scott says, “My family’s history goes back more than 350 years in Dartmouth, Massachusetts, and I wanted to give context to that history by using a timeline to bring the story all the way to the present day.  I used to help me with the names and dates.  I also used a common number 1664 – 1764 – 1864 – 1964 so that there were consistent increments of 100 years; but to bring it to modern day I didn’t worry about keeping it consistent on the last part of the timeline – instead, I gave the last 50  years a lot more space so I could relate all that history to the story of our family today.”

Family weddings can be made into infographic style pages.

Carrie Arick says, “This page gives a history of all the stories that helped create the lens through which I now view the world. I used journal cards and labels to organize my information. I first made a grid on my page with my journal cards, split it so I had to columns on each side of the page, then staggered each column to give the feel that you’re moving through time.”
