is the writing that accompanies photographs in a scrapbook album. Typically
scrapbookers write the information, as they consider the handwriting part of the
history of the scrapbook album. Those with hard to read handwriting may want to
consider using a printer or asking a family member to help out. Consider
including dates names, the story behind the photos, poems or quotes page toppers
Creative Ways Of Scrapbook Journaling
How much to add to your Scrapbook Journaling
- Write around the top and/or bottom of the oval and circle shapes,
following the curve of the photo and paper if you are using it behind the
- Write on the letters yourself (with or without the use of a stencil), use
punch out or cut out letters, pre-made page toppers (theme based) or sticker
letters to spell out individual words/names/page titles instead of writing
them out yourself.
- Choose a marker color that matches the paper color you are using as a
border or pick a color that is predominant in one or several of the photos
to use for your journaling.
The amount of and content of the journaling here is all subject to the
purpose or recipient of the album and what it is they will most want to
remember. If you are making the scrapbook album for yourself you may want to
remember the basics but also any funny anecdotes from the day or a particular
moment captured in a photo. If the album is for someone else they may want the
facts or a combination of the facts and the story behind a particular photo.
If you are using the photos to tell a story (in some cases there is a
sequence in which photos have been taken that describe how the events unfolded)
then the journaling can potentially be minimal. Likewise, you may decide to make
a page with just 1 photo, and dedicate a considerable amount of space to the
story behind the picture.
So pull out your pen and start writing to your hearts content.
There are no rules. Just your memories for your family and friends to enjoy.
