Digital Scrapbooking for Flowers

My dad has always been very interested in graphic arts and computers, so even after he retired and needed some assistance with everyday tasks, he still liked to tinker around with new programs and ideas on the computer.


One thing he has brought to my attention is digital scrapbooking, which is like an online version of the traditional scrapbook.

To do digital scrapbooking, you need to have a personal computer and either a digital camera that automatically uploads pictures to the computer or a scanner so you can use printed images and add them to a digital scrapbook.

Once or twice a week, Dad and I go out on a short walk around our neighborhood – we live in a more suburban area, so there are plenty of short trails around the house that are very flat and offer many beautiful opportunities to take pictures.

Dad especially likes to take pictures of the wildflowers and upload them to the computer into his digital scrapbook.

Once he has a collection of flowers, he puts them on a digital layout and creates fun printouts for the family, such as personal calendars or other pictures for display.

Digital scrapbooking for flowers – or using a computer in general – might not always be easy for a family member. Dad has a background in computers, so it’s great to see him taking that skill and keeping his memory and dexterity going by learning new things!

This variation of scrapbooking is a perfect alternative to family members – especially dads or uncles – who don’t necessarily want to work with paper crafts.

Digital Scrapbooking has Many Options and Subjects
by: Anonymous

There are so many components to digital scrapbooking – especially when looking at outside objects such as flowers or birds.

One good thing about this form of scrapbooking is it can be done alone or with a caregiver. Plus, it opens up creativity and also provides some physical exercise as you’re out looking for images.

Digital Scrapbooking Alone
by: Sandra

What an interesting idea!

I did not know such thing existed, but I can see how popular it might be for those who are still fairly independent and just need a caretaker for limited elderly activities, since it sounds like it could be done alone for the most part.

Will have to look into it and see if it would work with my elder family members. Thanks!
