There are hundreds of reasons that people make scrapbooks and each scrapbook made has its own theme. Some choose events like graduations or weddings, others make them as gifts designed to convey certain emotions such as happiness or sympathy while others choose to make books to celebrate occasions, such as birthdays or welcoming in a new family member.
Whatever the occasion is, you can always add in a quote on any of the pages. A quote, that has been carefully selected and placed in just the right spot can really add to the flavour of your scrapbook.
But how do you know where to find and when to use the right scrapbooking quotes?
In my many travels, I have come across some inspirational and thought provoking quotes that have been perfectly phrased and have really managed to capture the feeling of the speaker in a succicnt and meaningful way.
I have come across these in movies, while watching speeches, reading books and on the Internet. Whenever I come across a profound quote, I write it down and keep it for later, where I add it into my special scrapbooking quotes book for later.
This book comes out when I am making a scrapbook and want to use a quote to add to the feeling of my current scrapbook.
In my book, I have divided the sections up into happy, sad and general thoughts. I have then subdivided the sections into more specific emotions, such as happiness, success, achievement, sadness, loss and so on.
Whenever I need a quote for a particular occasion, I open my book, flip to the section which has the emotion I want to project. I then select the quote thats perfect for the page.
I hope you’ve decided to start your own scrapbooking quotes book, I know that mine has served me well over the years and its almost time to start a second one.
Good luck and happy scrapping!
