Welcome to the world of scrapbook journaling, where memories come to life on the pages of your scrapbook. Journaling is an important part of your scrapbooking layout.
Scrapbook journaling is the art of storytelling within your scrapbook layouts. It's the written narrative that accompanies your photos and embellishments, adding depth, context, and emotional connection to your memories. This journaling can be as simple as dates and names or as elaborate as personal anecdotes, quotes, and reflections.
Essentially, it's your unique voice and own handwriting guiding the viewer through your scrapbook, sharing the "who," "what," "where," "when," and most importantly, the "why" behind each cherished moment.

Scrapbooks and journals, both treasured for preserving memories, have distinct purposes. A scrapbook is a DIY visual chronicle, emphasizing images and design in the form of mixed media. Typically, scrapbook pages involve stickers, die cuts, cardstock, vellum, water colour, pattern paper, ribbons, washi tape and other fun embellishments or scrapbook supplies. On the other hand, journal pages are primarily text-based, serving as a written record of thoughts and experiences.
