♥ Rub-on quotes. Similar to stickers, craft stores usually carry rub-on baby scrapbook quotes. Rub-ons have a translucent background. A simple way to give special appeal to a rub-on is to place it on a light color piece of card stock before adhering it to your layout.
♥ Stamps. Baby quotes can also be found on rubber stamps, wooden stamps and acrylic stamps. If you're planning on using a quote over and over, such as making your own thank you cards, then stamps are the way to go. You can always enhance the quote by lightly shading the background with a color pencil.
♥ Die-cuts. To save time, you might want to consider die-cuts with scrapbooking quotes baby themed. Quite often these die-cuts are in a cute shape such as a rocking horse, teddy bear or a baby rattle with the quote beautifully written on it. Die-cuts tend to cost more than message stickers or rub-ons, but they save on time. All you need to do is to adhere them to your layouts.
♥ Journal blocks. Some stores offer packages of baby themed journal blocks. Each block contains a baby quote at the top or bottom of the square. You then can add your own thoughts in the rest of the square.
