Many gardeners keep a journal to record seasonal garden information, but have you thought of combining an art journal with the customary jottings about seeds and harvest? Make memories out of yours.
Create a Fun and Artistic Garden Scrapbook Journal
Creating a scrapbook journal would be a super easy way to keep a record of the garden:
- what you planted,
- how much produce you harvested,
- the children’s garden,
- flower bouquets you made for Grandma
- and even future plans and hopes for your landscape.
It is a neat way to combine your memories of the garden and your family growth together in one very creative crafty album. Make something creative that is not only a beautiful keepsake, but a useful resource to keep track of garden information that you are sure to want in the future.
Make Photo Pages
Add your photos, use scrapbooking techniques, and make a simple collection of your garden notes AND your memories.
You have heard of garden journals and you have heard of scrapbooking, have you heard of combining the two for a beautiful keepsake record of your gardens and memories of the flowers you’ve grown?
Whether you are new to scrapbooking (like me!) or an old hand, I bet you can find some inspiration for a whole new world of creative fun.

Or remember which shrub was planted in the front yard, or what the name of those perennial plants were in the side garden… or what that great annual container combo was two years ago? So, why not create a scrapbook that includes those facts in a beautiful artistic way?!
That type of information is really helpful to be able to find easily, and with the addition of family memories… Well, what a great a way to keep track of info in a form that is just plain fun!
