scrapbooking Pop Culture

This week's ScrapGals podcast is all about Pop Culture! 
It's a really fun show and one of our longest at an hour and a half. I share my most embarrassing story of all time which is quite a riot!
As I listened to the show, I typed up a list of ideas we discuss to document Pop Culture. To my surprise, it added up to 100 ways!

I hope this list will inspire you to start scrapbooking some of these things!

Awesome ideas! Thanks so much for sharing! :)

I really love so many of these topic ideas. I'd like to use some and pair them with my childhood photos to document little memories that would otherwise be overlooked. Thanks for sharing!

Unknown said...

great list and ideas! TFS

Tiffany Lowder said...

I can't believe we talked about all of these page ideas in one show! Go us! Woot, woot! Now, I just need to go make like 83 of them. ;)

Jennifer Grace said...

Wow so many cool ideas! I would love to scrapbook about the movies I loved growing up, movies were much more my thing than music. I am transported back to my youth watching certain films! Thanks for all the inspiration! x

Fawn said...

Great list! I'm sure it will be a lot of fun to compile these topics. Thanks for the inspiration!

Michelle said...

Wow! What a list you two came up with!! There are so many good ones! Definitely need to photograph the technology today for the kids to remember. Funny when my younger two are asking about stuff like that from years ago, and it either didn't exist or had just come out (remember what the first cell phone looked like?). A handful of years back, Brit asked me about being on the internet and computer when I was a kid. She couldn't believe it wasn't around back then (the internet), and the only computer I touched was late in high school with the Apple 2e's and doing Oregon trail (the little bleep across the screen). LOL

I love this so much. I was having so many ideas for memories to scrapbook that I restarted the podcast and started taking notes. Then I have been watching Creative Live for two days. I haven't even compared my notes with your list of 100, but I can already see that I can come up with a lot more topics by writing down ideas that your list triggers. Wow! I really do love your podcasts. I'm starting to feel like such a fangirl. I might need to get out of the house more. LOL! (Speaking of LOL, that's a scrapbook page right there - Emoticons!)
