Using Children’s Storybook Quotes in Your Scrapping

I often find myself dealing with “scrapping block.” You know, like writer’s block, but for scrappers. You’d think that with the tens of thousands of photos I have, along with the thousands of kits, I would never be lacking in inspiration. But sometimes, the sheer abundance of all that I have leaves me feeling like I don’t know where to start.

However, I am a firm believer that inspiration for scrapping is everywhere. I find that I often just need a little point in the right direction. I can see something in a store, on a blog, or on the web, and be inspired with a scrapping idea.

One great place for scrapping inspiration is in children’s storybook quotes. There are so many amazing books filled with wonderful, imaginative ideas. Taking just one line from a book can help you feel inspired to scrap.

In this layout, I picked the popular book,
Love you Forever. I had this picture of me sitting with my son on Mother’s Day and I thought it would be perfect for this quote, especially as we were sitting in a rocking chair.
