"All About Me" Scrapbook Topics & Ideas

There are so many events in life that are worth scrapbooking about - from weddings and new babies to the birthday parties and graduations, the list isn't short on what should be included in the story of our lives.

But there's one person we usually forget. That's ourselves.

Will your children and grandchildren know your favorite color, your daily routine, what your favorite board games were, etc.? When you think of your great grandmother and the people who came before you, wouldn't it be wonderful to see more photographs of them and know intimate details of their lives?

What is an "All About Me" Album?

Just like you would cherish an album about your ancestors (which only so few of us are lucky to have), your family and future family would cherish an album about you... and you're the best person to create it! An "All About Me" scrapbook album is an album that answers questions, tells stories, and shares pictures of you and your life. 

There are so many wonderful qualities that makeup you as a person, including your personality traits, physical traits, fashion choices, strengths, opinions, viewpoints, and so on. With a few scrapbook supplies that speak to you and the ideas below, you can rest assured you will create an album that you and your family will adore. 

How To Make an "All About Me" Album

scrapbooking all about me

Before you begin your album, you will want to determine what type of album you are going to do.

There are so many types of albums you can create. Here are a few types that would be perfect for creating "All About Me" albums!

- Traditional Scrapbooks (12" x 12" or 8.5" x 11" albums with page protectors)

- Easy Albums (Pocket-page style album kits that come with everything you need)

- ABC Albums (Any size, each page represents an alphabet letter and YOU decide what each letter represents!) 

- Past, Present, Future (Share the story of you, chronologically)

- Mini-Album (A teeny-tiny album that is all about you!)

How To Scrapbook About Yourself

The great thing about an "All About Me" scrapbook is that there are no rules - but don't let that intimidate you; let it free you. Pick any of the topics listed below and get started. Once you do a few pages all about you, the rest will feel much easier.
