Falling forward

Can you smell the pumpkin pie wafting through the air? Hear the singsong voices and giggles of eager trick-or-treaters? This is the time of year when days grow shorter and indoor family time feels just right. Preserve your best fall memories on this colorful page. For extra dimension and texture, glue a few red, yellow and orange leaves right onto the scrapbook page.

Aspects of autumn

Fall has so many themes to explore. Personally, we love watching the squirrels bound through yards and scamper up towering trees as they gather acorns and fatten their bellies for the long winter. This page which you can fill with your favorite photos, is a friendly ode to those critters. It's perfect for outdoorsy photos of pets, campfires, soccer games, hiking and anything else that's scrapbook-worthy this autumn. 

A quotable season

After reading the quote “Life itself is a quotation,” we wouldn’t be surprised if writer Jorge Luis Borges was a secret scrapbooker himself. This is a page just for your thoughts. Fill it with your favorite quotes, whether they’re from famous philosophers, inspirational affirmations, or personal meditations. Just like memories, thoughts tend to dissipate if they are not recorded and preserved. So, print out your favorite pictures, and caption them with whatever words come to mind. 

Assemble your fall bucket list

So much to do, so little time! Scrapbooks aren't just about recording memories. They're about documenting dreams, hopes and aspirations. This month, consider all of the things you dream about. Maybe it's traveling to Alaska, learning a new language, pursuing a degree or mastering a new recipe. Organize—and prioritize—your goals by recording them on this free blank printable bucket list. Fill it out in one sitting, or brainstorm ideas once inspiration sets in and the season progresses. Don't forget to cross them off as you move down and around the list! 

This fall, make it your goal to live in the moment, while also taking photos and jotting down notes about the special moments you want to remember. Be mindful of all the sights and smells of the season. And don’t forget to show us your creations, because we want to see what you've done. Share your fall scrapbooking projects using the hashtags #CreatewithCanon and #CraftywithCanon. Happy scrapping!
