A digital scrapbook is a great way of immortalizing your favorite experiences, especially if you’re the sentimental type. However, you may be wondering what else you can add to your new digital scrapbook apart from standard photos. There are many things you can scan and add to your digital collection of memories, which is why we’ve provided you with these digital scrapbook tips to give you some inspiration!

1. Postcards

Although postcards are becoming less and less relevant in the digital age, they still stand as a nostalgic and quaint way to remember certain landmarks, places, or countries you’ve visited. What better way to remember your trip to Paris than a picture of the Eiffel Tower or an aged postcard of the Arc De Triomphe?

2. Stamps

Stamps, whether plain or one-off editions, could make a great addition to your digital scrapbook, sparking conversation with whoever should view them. Countries all around the world still release commemorative stamps to mark special occasions such as the Olympics or the anniversary of a historical date. You can also add to your digital scrapbook the stamps from the snail mail you’ve received.

3. Tickets

There’s no way we can list items you can add to a digital scrapbook without mentioning tickets! Tickets remind us of various trips and memories from our past, such as plane tickets, train tickets, concert tickets, cinema tickets, and theatre tickets. Including tickets of significant events in your digital scrapbook is a good way to spark your memory while viewing nostalgic objects from more carefree times.

4. Drawings

Even though your digital scrapbook isn’t a traditional paper one, it doesn’t mean that you can’t scan your drawings and include them, too. They could be drawings you’ve done yourself (whatever level of artistic talent you may have) or drawings that your children or loved ones have produced. Either way, they’re sure to add some life to your digital scrapbook!

5. Notes

Handwritten notes, especially ones which relate to significant events, are a unique and interesting reminder, as well as a brilliant talking point when you have guests round. Perhaps you found a handwritten note to buy a crib before your first child was born, for instance, keeping it as a memento in your digital scrapbook forever.

Now, digital scrapbooks wouldn’t serve their purpose if they’re just gathering digital dust on your hard drive. Display your digital scrapbook on a Nixplay Frame, place it in your living room or bedroom, and watch the memories flow!
