A Birth Certificate shows you were born.
A Death Certificate shows you died.
A Completed Scrapbook shows you LIVED!

An imperfect finished page is better than
an perfect page 'someday'
that only exists in your head.

Find inspiration in every day things!

What's Your Type?

Chances are you don't need a complete collection of markers, gel pens, journaling pens, and color pencils. Think about what you'd like to do with your writing tools, then purchase accordingly.

Journaling Pens

Check the tip size. Larger numbers (like .08) produce a thicker line while finer tips have smaller numbers (.01).

Black is a versatile color that no scrapbooker should be without. From there, add colors that you use often.

Most scrapbooking stores allow you to test a pen on a scratch pad to see if you like the way the ink flows and the pen feels. The more comfortable you are with the feel and flow, the more likely you are to write with it.

The best journaling pens are acid-free and fade-proof so your brilliant prose will stay readable for years to come.
