Scrapbook quotes are a great way to express feelings, sentiments or to simply set the scene for your scrapbook page. Scrapbook quotes can be used for every occasion and quite often you can use the same quote on more than one page.
You can attach your scrapbook quotes to your pages in a number of ways. Here I have listed a few ideas I have come up with whilst making my own scrapbook page layouts.
Tags – Tags are a great because you can dress them up by adding ribbon, brads, eyelets or anything you find in your craft supplies. Creating a tag to place your scrapbook quotes onto is a really effective way of putting a message across.
Tags can be placed directly onto your scrapbook pages or you could go for a more ‘crafty’ look by placing them inside an envelope. You could try adding some vellum paper to the corner of the page and tuck the tag behind it leaving part of it poking out.
Mounting – Scrapbook quotes can be printed from your own printer and mounted on corresponding papers, this is also known as matt and layering. One of the advantages of printing your own scrapbook quotes is you can choose font and test size to suite the page you are working on.
Vellum Scrapbook Quotes – Vellum is a wonderful material and perfect for scrapbooking. There really is so much you can do with it. Try ripping or tearing the edges then applying ink to the torn edge. You can also place the vellum on some pretty paper. Vellum is slightly see through so you will see the design of the paper through the vellum.
Because you can see through vellum, applying it to your scrapbook pages needs to be done with care. If you use 3D foam, glue or any thing visible it will show through. Instead try attaching your vellum scrapbook quotes using brads, eyelets or specialist vellum tape.
Chipboard – Chipboard is perfect for decorating. It is strong and durable so you can attach metal embellishment, brads and all sorts off craft materials. It is perfect for scrapbook quotes because you can cut the chipboard into letters to spell out what you are trying to say.
Rub Ons and Scrapbook Stickers – You can purchase scrapbook quotes that are rub ons which simply means you rub them onto the page. Rub ons are mess free and you can purchase the words in all sorts of styles, colors and designs. Similarly scrapbook stickers can be purchased from craft stores and are a quick and simple way for adding text to your page.
It is often a good idea to use scrapbook quotes that match the page layout. Mount them on corresponding paper or use embellishment to decorate them so they coordinate with the page you are working on.
Scrapbook quotes are really important when creating your pages. They show thoughts and feelings and are a great way to explain what is happening on a page.
