I’ve been scrapbooking my life for 20+ years. I’m here to help you learn how to craft a creative habit and tell the stories of your life with my Daily Pages project.
What are Daily Pages?
Daily Pages are a creative self-documenting habit started by rukristin in the summer of 2018. Daily Pages are all about pulling a small amount of paper, thoughts, photos, words, or bits of life into a small notebook. They’re a creative habit for you to tell your stories. Your pages can be as simple or as elaborate as you want them to be, you can use whatever supplies you have on hand. There is no right or wrong way to approach this project. You don’t even have to create pages every single day. This is about whatever works for you and your own life.
It's a simple & accessible project
Tell your stories in just a few minutes a day, using the awesome supplies you already have in your house (even if that's just some magazines and junk mail).
It gives you a plan to use your favorite supplies
You can use Daily Pages to scrapbook, stamp, to play with patterned paper, to scrapbook your photos, paint with watercolors, or whatever else you're being called to do.
And, you've got easy way to hone your creative muscles
Practicing your creative skills each day makes you a better artist and storyteller. This habit will jumpstart your creative metabolism and get you moving in the direction you want to be going.
My own Daily Pages
My pages are very simple, I don’t really use prompts, or plan things out in advance. I typically grab things that are out on my desk or within arms reach. This means my books are filled with scraps of paper, leftover photos, random bits that I pick up here and there. And that’s absolutely perfect. It means that whatever I pick up to play with is good enough.
And that’s what this is all about — spending a small amount of time each day working on something. If you did that, then it’s good enough. Sometimes the pages will be amazing and sometimes they’ll suck. But most of the time they’re going to be good, and that’s awesome. Because this isn’t about trying to make a page that is always better than the page you made the day before. It’s about spending the time making a page.

Project: Daily Pages
Daily Pages are a practice that I put into place for myself early summer 2018. I knew that I wanted to spend more time being creative and in order for me to do that, I needed to spend a little bit of time working on that each day. The way I found myself doing that was crafting in a notebook — working on one double page spread each day. This practice has been the one thing that has leveled up my skills and personal style more than anything that I’ve ever done in my 15+ years of working with paper.
The benefits of creating a small something every day is amazing. It is the fastest and most efficient way to become a better artist. You can put in five minutes each day and you’ll move further along down your creative path than ever before. You’ll quickly learn about what you like, what you don’t like, what you’re good at, what you need to practice, the things you love to use, the products that aren’t fun for you, and so much more.
It’s an awesome way to get a small amount of creativity in each day. It’s a great way to practice the little things that you want to get better at. I absolutely love this daily practice and I love sharing it with Awesome Ladies. Scroll down to learn more about this Project.
