1. Introduction to Create a Scrapbook

Playback Speed:

You probably have memories that you want to hold onto forever: special moments shared with family and friends, or fascinating places you have visited.

One way to preserve important memories is to create a scrapbook.

A traditional scrapbook is a blank book where people collect and display items that spark important memories — like photographs, drawings, and newspaper clippings.

Scrapbooks are usually put together in creative ways, and arranged carefully to look visually appealing.

You can also build a scrapbook in a digital application.

You can share a digital scrapbook easily with almost anyone.

And unlike with traditional scrapbooks, you don’t have to be crafty to make a digital scrapbook look great.

Creating a physical scrapbook requires a lot of careful cutting and pasting, which can look beautiful but takes a lot of time.

Digital scrapbooks are easy to edit. You can move images, objects, and text around in seconds, and use pre-made templates to get exactly the look you want.

In this lesson, you will build a digital scrapbook.

This lesson uses Google Slides, but you could complete it in any presentation application.

As you build your digital scrapbook, you will: Select a subject for your scrapbook, Choose a theme, Create and organize pages, And add text, images and video to your scrapbook.
