Scrapbooking | March 2020 Scrapped

Since we spent most of March at home as the coronavirus pandemic spread to and throughout the United States, I only needed a couple of layouts (in addition to Our Month In Numbers) to capture our stories.

I actually started with a two-page kit from our local scrapbook store (which is offering phone in orders & curbside pickup as the store is currently closed to the public). I really like all the die cuts in this kit!

So far, I've created two layouts with pieces from this page kit. For my first layout, I combined the information in my COVID-19 Words, Quotes & Such blog post and my guest post about Life in Lockdown on Ruth's blog to form a huge journaling block printed on white cardstock. I added a photo of the empty toilet paper shelves at our Wal-Mart and President Trump's  Coronavirus Guidelines for America postcard. All the other elements (background paper, photo mats, title, toilet paper die cut) came from the kit.

I used the other background paper and the green Shelter in Place and 2020 die cuts for another layout showcasing a few photos here at home during March. I added black cardstock photo mats and a green paper strip along one side to balance out the page.

I have the remaining four photo mats, the Texas die cuts and the Wash Your Hands die cut pieces left from this kit that I'll most likely use for a layout documenting this month of continuing to stay at home and follow the other guidelines to slow the spread of COVID-19.

How are you documenting this unprecedented time?


  1. Those die-cuts are perfect for recording this global story.
    I'm starting on a 6x8 pocket-page album and following all the links I find to download free printables.

  2. Great find on those die-cuts ... your pages are going to be such a treasure of memories in years to come. I'm thinking of going back to hybrid for a while.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
