Embellishment tips and tricks with word art


Curled index card by Katie Pertiet. Fontologie Journal Away and Free Refill fonts.

Word art is a fast and easy way to add something really special to your digital scrapbook layouts. I (Katie) am a big fan of word art! I use it to make cards, and also love to use it as a simple embellishment for special photos. One of my favorite ways to use word art is on a scrapbook page.


  • You don’t have to think of a title! 😀 When I asked The Daily Digi team for help with this post, we all agreed that a major benefit of using word art is cutting out the stress of thinking of a clever title for our page!

  • Word art can give direction to your page. Many times I have decided to scrap a certain subject just because of a piece of word art. Word art has also directed my journaling on occasion and acted as a “prompt” to write about a specific memory.

  • Word art can act as an embellishment and contribute to the design of the layout. Many pieces of word art really are like miniature works of art. They are beautiful and add a wonderful design element to the page!

  • Word art can fill in for (or supplement) journaling. We love journaled pages here at The Daily Digi, but not every page needs to be a novel. Sometimes you just want to add a sweet thought or a few words, and that is when word art can be a real lifesaver!
