Need A Scrapbook Journaling Idea?
Try using song lyrics in your next layout.
Song lyrics can be a great source of title and page
inspiration for a scraper.
Music and songs play an important part in our lives. Hearing a
song again can evoke a lot of emotion, bringing back fond
memories of special times, special people and special places.
Of course, different songs mean different things to different
people - but you can use songs to 'tap' into those memories to
create unique, and highly personal scrapbook pages.
How do you use lyrics on your pages?
Well, here's a scrapbook journaling idea for you to try using
a wedding layout as an example.
If the bride and groom have their own 'special song' then you
use that to add a personal touch. If not don't worry find another
suitable song instead, there are lots of song lyric web sites on
the internet that you can browse.
Pick a section from your chosen song for example, the first
verse of "A Groovy Kind of Love" by Phil Collins and journal the
lyrics around the edges of your page.
Then embellish your border with some appropriate wedding
stickers, die-cuts or punches. Tie it all neatly together, by
using the title of the chosen song as the accent title for your
What about a friendship page? You could use some of the lyrics
from "You've Got a Friend" by Carole King, maybe decorate your
border with musical notes.
Doing a page about someone's birthday? You could journal the
words from "Happy Birthday" and embellish the border with cakes,
candles or other birthday memorabilia.
Don't limit yourself to just a section of a song, use all of
it if you want to.
Write or print out the complete song lyrics onto some nice
paper and add it to your page. If you don't have the room left on
your album page make a pocket envelope to put your song sheet
You can apply this scrapbook journaling idea to any kind of
page theme, not just the ones listed here as examples.
There have been tens of thousands of songs published over the
years covering all sorts of subjects - the possibilities for the
resourceful scraper are endless.
Just make sure that the song title or lyric you are going to
use is suitable for the theme of your layout and you'll soon add
a quick, simple and memorable piece of journaling to your
