Scrapbooking Advice Tip 3. Use a grid.
Sometimes it can be challenging trying to decide where to place photos, the title, and your journaling. Here's a great scrapbook tip–you can download a variety of grids for free. Grids provide templates of where to place your photos. For example, a common grid has three squares along the left side of the page and one larger square toward the bottom right. This allows for four photos. The upper right section can be used for a title and journaling.
If you're also planning on investing in scrapbook paper cutters, make sure you're picking a paper cutter with grids.
Do you tend to place your titles in the same spot on each layout? Do you use the same type of lettering over and over? Mix it up! The beauty of scrapbooking is there are no firm rules that need to be followed. Try placing your title vertically or along the bottom of a page. To make the actual letters, use scrapbook stamps, precut letters, letters torn out of a magazine, stenciled letters or letters typed with a really fun font. A sticker message can even be used as a title. You can also make use of the amazing Cricut machine tool.

Scrapbooking Advice Tip 5. Correspond framing.
A simple but very effecting scrapbooking tip is to use corresponding framing for your photos and journaling. Choose two types of frames for your layout. It could be two different colors, two different widths or two different textures. With the consistency of the frames it will nicely pull your layout together.
Tip 6. Type your journaling.
Unless you have super nice handwriting, consider typing your journaling. Choose a font that is pretty, yet can easily be read. Some of the benefits of typing instead of writing are: you can use spellcheck, you can change the size of your words, you can emphasize certain words by using a different color or size, and typed journaling won't fade like most handwritten journaling.
