Thousands of people come to About.com Scrapbooking everyday, but not all of them are scrapbookers. What were the top 5 things that people searched for in 2012 that brought them to About.com Scrapbooking to find their answers? You might be surprised. Both the searches and the articles or sections of the site that contained the answers are listed below.
The fact that "Speech Bubbles" stays so high in searches is definitely a surprise to me. But it is true that here on About.com Scrapbooking, we have a gallery of free speech bubbles that can be saved to your computer. They can be printed for use as journaling boxes on traditional paper scrapbook pages or used as patterns to create speech bubble shapes from patterns papers, chipboard, or colored cardstock. This gallery contains six different designs ranging from your standard, oval-shaped bubble to the typical, comic super-hero "pow" (shown here).
Some of my other favorite journaling boxes here on About.com are the 7 Free Shaped Journaling Boxes with Writing Lines.
This collection allows you to easily add hand-written journaling to your scrapbook pages with the guidance of lined paper. Print out one or more of these shapes on colored cardstock or even subtly patterned paper for use on your next scrapbook page layout.
