    Quips and Sayings For Scrapbooking

    The best free quips and sayings that you will ever find are the ones made up by your family, your friends, and you because they will be the most meaningful. Even if it was a strange or funny thing that said that everyone quotes when everyone gets together, it will be the better choice for anything that you might find somewhere else. That being said, it's a good idea to include some variety in creative projects or maybe you need to find something that you don't have a saying for, so we have provided a couple example of free quips and sayings for you to use in your scrapbooking project.

    Selecting Quips and Sayings For Your Scrapbook

    Supplies for scrapbooking. 

    As I mentioned before, the best additions to your own scrapbook are the ones that the most relevant to you. This can be something that your friends and family came up with or something that was said on a memorable day. But if you can't think of any it's always good to stay relevant to what it is the subject of your scrapbook is.

    Staying relevant doesn't mean you can't be creative and think outside to box. The saying "To boldly go where no man has gone before." is generally thought of when space exploration is brought up, but it can also just as easily accompany a photograph, maybe of someone on a swing set or of a cave that was visited. Taking sayings and making them your own is fun and it adds a lot of different tones and emotions to pictures.

    Remember that while you can mix and match quips and sayings to fit to what you have, they have to be somewhat appropriate otherwise it's just an oddly put together set of images and text. Just as a sort of general example you probably wouldn't want to include a saying related to winning and losing next to the birth of a family member.
