Decorative Journaling as a BorderEvery scrapbook page needs to have journaling in order to identify what is going on in the photos. If you are tired of the standard journal box, try writing around the edge of a single photograph or the entire page. You can use the journaling as a way to frame a group of photographs. Other journaling ideas include repeating a verse or a poem around a border along a wavy line. They make excellent scrapbook journaling software that can help with this process.

Journaling Your Scrapbook PagesJournaling is an essential part of your scrapbook page layouts. Whether you are creating a baby scrapbook, a wedding scrapbook or a school memory book, it is important to record dates, activities and milestones. You should journal on almost every page with an explanation under the photographs. If you do not have information about your photographs and page layouts then you might forget an important event and others will not be able to fully enjoy your photos.
The proper way to journal is to answer Who? What?, When?, Where? And Why? Providing an answer to these common questions is key for future reference. Tell a story about your photos; try to relive the memory in your writing. All of these suggestions will make your memories come alive and by journaling your pages you will be able to remember your memories every time you look in your scrapbook.
