Journaling Technique Number 3 – Other People’s Words


Scrapbooking & Crafting Advice from SundayLSometimes, your own words don’t seem enough, or just aren’t right for the scrapbook page you are creating.  At times like that, using other people’s quotes can be the solution.
A whole page can be made around a quote, especially inspirational ones.  However, quotes are most useful to add an expression of emotion to a page.
There are many people who feel just too darn self-conscious to open up in an emotional way in their journaling, but a quote from someone else that sums up how you feel can be just the ticket.
I won’t post a load of quotes here, or a bunch of links, as it’s suffice to say that you can copy and paste literally millions of quotes from the internet… just type in the words “scrapbook quotes” and other derivatives and see just how many there are available to you!  You might like to put in another keyword, such as “inspiration” or  “children”, etc, to narrow down your options.
One word of advice… keep your copies.  (ok that’s three words I realise!) But I mean… keep a copy of what you’ve copied from the internet.  Just paste into a word document, or even something simple such as using the program Notepad or whatever the Mac equivalent is. You never know when you will want to use them again!
