Ideas for Using Scrapbooking Quotes

Updated on June 17, 2011

Scrapbooking quotes are often incorporated into layouts to help reinforce the theme of a particular page.

Scrapbook Quotes as Journaling

The most common way to use scrapbook quotes is as journaling on your layout. The quote can be a substitute for a page title or a photo caption. This works especially well when the photo is a portrait that speaks for itself. For example, you may have a picture of your daughter that you want to scrapbook just because she’s smiling nicely and you like the dress she’s wearing.

If you have more to say about a photo, however, you can use the quote as a way to start your scrapbook journaling. For example, a quote that talks about how you don’t choose your family could be a good way to begin journaling about how your relationship with your sister has changed over the years from a sibling rivalry to one of mutual respect.

Using Scrapbooking Quotes as Design Elements

Another way to incorporate scrapbook quotes into your projects is to use them as design elements. This can be accomplished by incorporating decorative type or mixed media techniques into your layout. For example, highlighting important words in your favorite scrapbooking quotes is a great way to add interest to your pages. You can highlight words by:

  • Using a larger, thicker, or more decorative font
  • Magnifying the words with clear page pebbles
  • Chalking over the words

Other ways to design with scrapbook quotes include:

  • Print a scrapbook quote on a piece of twill ribbon.
  • Print your favorite scrapbooking quote on a tag and accent with fibers.
  • Create a mixed-media look by combining alphabet stickers, buttons, charms, and metal accents to create the quote.
