One of the most popular sayings for scrapbooking is surely 'a picture paints a thousand words.' However, accurately recording memories can be a tricky task.

Memories get clouded, and pictures can sometimes be interpreted in a thousand different ways. So what is a good compromise between writing a diary and making a very vague scrapbook?

Sayings for scrapbooking help you get the initial feel of a memory but then let you fill in the blanks yourself.

Using the combination of photos, memorabilia, and scrapbooking quotes can prove to be a most effective way of initializing a good reminiscing session!

However, in order to have this effect, you'll need to choose your Scrapbooking quotes carefully. So what qualities should you look for in a scrapbooking quote?

First of all, check out this list of scrapbook sayings I've picked out for you.....

What makes them good scrapbooking sayings?

1. Mnemonic quality - the best sayings for scrapbooking are easily remembered. They should have that quality that makes them stick in your head.

You realize, of course, that the best songs often have this quality. Ever wonder why some singers fade away after 2 albums while some old singers still remain popular even decades after their last song was released? (Even if that song's really naff!)

2. Relevant - Of course, a scrapbooking quote should be relevant to what you intend to portray. The scrapbooking quote should be able to bring across your message and enable whoever is reading the quote to relate to the object or picture in your scrapbook.

3. Short - A scrapbooking quote should be able to get the message across with very few words. You see, the focus of the scrapbook should remain on the objects or photographs.

In choosing a scrapbooking quote, you should make sure that the quote does not take the centre stage from the other objects in the scrapbook.

4. Touching - a good scrapbooking quote should not only touch your brain, but it should also move your emotion.

These are just some qualities that you should look for in sayings for scrapbooking. Never forget, however, that the most important factor is you. You should decide whether or not a quote is appropriate for your scrapbook.

This is the reason why some people choose to write their own quotes instead of borrowing the words of another. A scrapbook is a very personal item, which needs to relate to you.
