Oops, facing a scrapbook page with missing words? Scrapbooking quotes to the rescue! Quotes are great thoughts, wisdom, or wit condensed into brief lines expressed by someone else. When chosen thoughtfully, a quote can help you clearly expressed your inner feelings and thoughts, probably in fewer words too.
To you, maybe the journaling part is the hardest. That’s what worries some of my friends when they scrapbook too. They said that it’s easy to place the photos and embellishments, but they’re usually stuck at the journaling portion.
They have the journaling block (aka writer’s block). Do you have the same concern? Quotes can be a good solution.
Here’s some wonderful benefits of using scrapbooking quotes:
- Quotes are great space fillers. They put across messages or ideas you just can’t seem to put into words as effectively.
- Quotes can inspire. You believe that some wise words from a famous person can act as a piece of valuable advice.
- Quotes can lend an element of fun, inspiration, laughter, or sentimentality to your scrapbook pages. Maybe it’s words you wished you said them yourself.
Are these reasons good enough to make you want to include a scrapbooking quote to your next layout? Quotes can be the perfect companion for your scrapbook pages.
There are really loads of quotes out there that you can use, just that you need to spend time digging quotes.
