    Yay! Love all the giveaways! Happy Anniversary!

    • Cathy C. April 18, 2013 at 1:35 pm #

      Depends on the page. But thanks for various ideas on combining title and journaling.

  2. Bernice J April 16, 2013 at 11:33 pm #

    I usually do not always include a title on my pages but depending on what I want to convey on the layout, I may or may not use a lot of journaling. For example, if I want to just showcase the photos, I don’t add much journaling, but there are other times I add a lot.

  3. grannymike April 17, 2013 at 1:21 am #

    I don’t always have a title (I do like them a lot, however), and I usually have quite a bit of journaling. Actually, I just read Bernice J’s comment, and I agree with her approach to scrapping. Happy anniversary, and thanks for the chance to win.

  4. lawyerlyn April 17, 2013 at 6:12 am #

    i almost always add a title, as i think word arts are wonderful, and always add journaling to my page

  5. Chris April 17, 2013 at 6:13 am #

    Happy Anniversary!!

  6. Marilyn April 17, 2013 at 6:20 am #

    Love your site! Would be thrilled to win this giveaway. Thanks!

  7. Deb April 17, 2013 at 6:22 am #

    I always add a title and my journaling can vary from one sentence to several sentences. It would be very rare for me not to add journaling.

  8. Roanna Wong April 17, 2013 at 6:25 am #

    I dont usually journal much on my pages. I tend to say it with pictures. But I do put at least a short title to let myself know what’s the occasion..etc.
    Thanks for a chance in winning! *hugs*

  9. Jean Marmo April 17, 2013 at 6:28 am #

    I usually do a title but don’t always do journaling.

  10. Christina Condy April 17, 2013 at 6:34 am #

    Thanks for the great giveaway! Happy anniversary! I love titles on my pages! But I don’t always use them.

  11. Sue April 17, 2013 at 6:39 am #

    I always use both the title and journaling. But my journaling is usually not very detailed.

  12. Kathy April 17, 2013 at 6:39 am #

    Happy Anniversary and thank you for your generosity! I always like to use a title. Journaling varies depending on the subject .. could be a meaningful word or quote or a more detailed story depending on the pictures and the event.

  13. tape April 17, 2013 at 6:42 am #

    I usually include a title and a moderate amount of journaling (like a smallish journaling card). To me the page doesn’t feel complete with either.

  14. Jenny McGee April 17, 2013 at 6:46 am #

    Happy Anniversary!!! Thanks for such fun weeks of giveaways.

  15. Donna April 17, 2013 at 6:57 am #

    So excited about this giveaway!! Hope I win :)
    I need to use this site more often!


  16. karen keiper April 17, 2013 at 7:04 am #

    I always have a title and usually have at least a few sentences of journalling at a minimum. The most i have done is about 1/3 of a page.

  17. susan kopp April 17, 2013 at 7:08 am #

    I am finally using a variety of titles. I used to handcut everyone of them but I now use my Cameo, Thickers, other stickers or sometimes use a premade diecut as part of the title. I also journal on 98% of my pages. Why bother if you are not going to include a story or facts for your loved ones once you are gone.

  18. Lori April 17, 2013 at 7:09 am #

    I always try to include some journaling–the amount and depth depending on my mood! Thanks for the opportunity and Happy Anniversary! You are growing up too fast! :)

  19. Susanne April 17, 2013 at 7:11 am #

    I always include a title, but I’ve been known to do pages with practically no journaling. As you can see, I opt for the easy way, sometimes.

  20. Colleen April 17, 2013 at 7:12 am #

    I use titles and would like to do more journaling than I do now. Sometimes I think the photos tell the story, but more journaling would be a nice addition to my pages.

  21. Liz Lumsden April 17, 2013 at 7:13 am #

    Happy Anniversary, baby! I usually add titles to my pages, and depending on the page there may be journaling. If I am doing an event scrapbook and there are several pages to one particular part of the event, there will be a good sized journal block usually on the final page.

  22. Jo M April 17, 2013 at 7:15 am #

    It’s always exciting to enter these events. We never know what will happen. Good luck to all of us

  23. Hannah April 17, 2013 at 7:21 am #

    Thanks for this great contest! I love to include titles and journally, but often find that this is where I struggle most creatively – so sometimes for quickness I just miss them out. Thx

  24. Alexis Aragona April 17, 2013 at 7:22 am #

    I found these last few years that I tend to forego titles! Sometimes a title will come to me and I’ll use it, but most times I’m comfortable leaving my layout title-less. I like to play with fonts for titles more than alphas. And about 90% of the time, I will put journaling on my layouts! Even if it’s just one sentence, my layout feels naked without text, haha. I think the exceptions would be if I already have a buttload of wordart on there, but otherwise, yes, my pages have journaling :) Thanks for this chance to win, Debbie! :)

  25. Pat April 17, 2013 at 7:29 am #

    I always have a title and SOME journaling on my pages. Sometimes the journaling may be a couple of words, but usually it’s more since I tend to be “wordy”!
    Congats on your 5th anniversary!!

  26. JodieM April 17, 2013 at 7:33 am #

    I pretty much always have both a title and journalling. The journalling is important for most of my pages as it is usually the story that started the process of scrapping the page. I can get carried away sometimes though! Happy Anniversary!

  27. Jeannine April 17, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    I don’t have a usual way of doing anything. Usually the photo or experience “tells” me what to do.

  28. Roxane F. April 17, 2013 at 7:43 am #

    Happy Anniversary! Thanks for a chance to win!

  29. LeslieM April 17, 2013 at 7:55 am #

    Journaling……always struggle with journaling.

  30. KarYn A. April 17, 2013 at 7:58 am #

    Journaling is the most important part for me – but also what holds me up. Sometimes it is just a title – but I’m a wordy gal and that is where I gravitate.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  31. Natalija April 17, 2013 at 7:59 am #

    I always have a title, I prefer to make my own wordart from fonts or make my own alpha :)

  32. TeresaD April 17, 2013 at 8:04 am #

    I usually have to shorten my journaling because it does not fit the page. I love titles but struggle to come up with one. So I love having good word art.

  33. Wendy Ramos April 17, 2013 at 8:07 am #

    Congrats on your anniversary! I’ve learned so much from your site, thanks so much for all of the work you put into your classes!

  34. Francine Seal April 17, 2013 at 8:09 am #

    Well, I don’t have a twitter account and don’t really want one so that’s four entries I won’t get. But I’m getting several anyway. I just wish I had more hours in a day that I could spend learning all about digi-scrapping from you, Debbie. It really is too bad that life has to get in the way (and I’m retired yet!)

  35. ScrappinEweRobyn (Robyn) April 17, 2013 at 8:10 am #

    WOOOHOOOOOOO!! I love giveaways! I also love checking out this fantastic site. So many things to learn!
    Thank you for the giveaway chance!

  36. ScrappinEweRobyn (Robyn) April 17, 2013 at 8:11 am #

    OH YEA, BTW, I do not tweet or belong to Facebook. I have not ventured to the Pintrest yet, either.

  37. Sandy Handrich April 17, 2013 at 8:11 am #

    I usually scrapbook by event so my 1st page is a title page. Then I typically add a little journaling to each page but like many others I’m way behind on my journaling!

  38. Kelly S April 17, 2013 at 8:12 am #

    I usually use letter stickers for my title and handwrite my journaling. I have been experimenting with writing my journaling directly on to my page instead of on cardstock or a journaling block.

  39. Sue C April 17, 2013 at 8:17 am #

    I don’t always add journaling, it depends on the pictures and the layout. Happy Anniversary!!!! Thanks for the chance to win.

  40. Rita Timmons April 17, 2013 at 8:26 am #

    i always have a title of some kind – journaling might only be a few words + date. Not a big journaler I have to admit.

  41. Kathleen D April 17, 2013 at 8:31 am #

    I always have a title and I would like to work on using more journaling in my layouts. Great giveaways!

  42. J3SS1C4 April 17, 2013 at 8:35 am #

    Happy anniversary!! When I journal, I like to use stickers for titles then either type or handwrite the journalling. I journal a lot though… I’m a huge writer!

  43. Trish April 17, 2013 at 8:41 am #

    Yeah – I found your site a while ago when I first started digi scrapping but just recently started going on on a regular basis and I am LOVING all of your tips. Good luck everyone!

  44. Elizabeth Crouch April 17, 2013 at 8:42 am #

    Happy Anniversary!! Would love the chance to win!!

  45. FaithLiving April 17, 2013 at 8:47 am #

    I don’t always use a title…I usually have a hard time coming up with one. I do journal whether it is a sentence or several.

  46. Anna April 17, 2013 at 8:48 am #

    Love to use titles on pages, always do…and I do write a few lines of journalling on most pages. Love all that you do for the scrapbooking community. Thanks for the chance to win!

  47. Robbin April 17, 2013 at 8:54 am #

    Titles are a must with minimal journal-ling! How exciting to celebrate 5 years!

  48. Angela April 17, 2013 at 8:59 am #

    I love titles and love using Thickers…and I have been journaling more in my own writing. Sometimes the story just needs a few lines and sometimes a half page..

  49. Tammy Davis April 17, 2013 at 9:01 am #

    I usually always have some kind of a title. It may be an enlarged version of part of the journalling or it might be some word art. I try to always have journalling if there is a story to tell. At the very minimum I list the who what when and where. Thanks for the chance!

  50. shoshanna April 17, 2013 at 9:11 am #

    would love to win this

  51. amy April 17, 2013 at 9:12 am #

    Happy Happy Anniversary! Thank you so much for the awesome giveaways!

  52. Alice April 17, 2013 at 9:19 am #

    I always struggle with titles. I feel like I’m trying to categorize my life or perspective, and I just don’t view things that way. Journaling is just more fluid and tells so much more about the subject. So my layouts rarely have titles.

  53. Judith Blanchard April 17, 2013 at 9:19 am #

    I usually add a title and I try to journal as much as I can, especially on my heritage pages. Sometime, though, just the names and date are enough if the pictures are self-explanatory.

  54. Marcy F. April 17, 2013 at 9:20 am #

    Happy Anniversary!

  55. Marcy F. April 17, 2013 at 9:22 am #

    Usually I just put the important information, like place, date and who.

  56. Lisa Long April 17, 2013 at 9:27 am #

    Happy Anniversary!!

    I usually type my journaling and choose a font that fits the layout of the page.
    I’m not always good at coming up with titles, so when I come up with one that rocks I’m always really pleased.

  57. Meredith April 17, 2013 at 9:31 am #

    Am starting an online blogging course today and I think that the digital scrapbooking will come in handy.

  58. Jenn L April 17, 2013 at 9:42 am #

    Oh how fabulous this is! Happy Anniversary! Thanks for the chance!

  59. Karen S April 17, 2013 at 9:43 am #

    Happy Anniversary!

  60. SusanDR April 17, 2013 at 9:46 am #

    I love reading your posts, tutorials and seeing so many beautiful creations. Happy Anniversary and thanks for all the inspiration!

  61. Jen Day/Jenbird April 17, 2013 at 9:51 am #

    I usually do my titles in a combination of thickers and small letter stickers. Journaling is by hand- usually a paragraph or two, and maybe a date.

  62. Deb S. April 17, 2013 at 9:53 am #

    Happy Anniversary! Thanks for the giveaways!

  63. Anne Hargreaves April 17, 2013 at 9:56 am #

    Thanks once again and congratulations!

  64. Jeanne J April 17, 2013 at 9:56 am #

    I always have a title on my pages and force myself to add journaling.

  65. Anne R April 17, 2013 at 10:12 am #

    I always put a title on my pages. Journaling usually depends on the story of the photo.

  66. Juliana April 17, 2013 at 10:13 am #

    What’s your preference for journaling and titles? – I use a variety of things from letter stickers to die cuts. I like to mix it up.
    Do you usually include a title on your pages? – Usually.
    And how much journaling do you add? – I keep it minimal. This is the hardest part for me!!!

    Thanks for a chance to win!!!

  67. Trena April 17, 2013 at 10:58 am #

    Love the site Debbie! Happy Anniversay!

  68. Amy in TX April 17, 2013 at 11:05 am #

    Thank you for the chance to win such a great prize! I’m so glad I entered, I hadn’t realized that you were on Pinterest (duh!) and can’t wait to have your great pins on my feed!

  69. terriavidreader April 17, 2013 at 11:16 am #

    I haven’t done a scrapbook yet, but I’ve been marking ideas and gathering a few things. I’d love to win.

  70. Tiffany April 17, 2013 at 11:21 am #

    I don’t consider the title “a must” on my pages. But I do often have some kind of text that is more prominent than the rest. I almost always journal – it can range between just a date and place, to a brief description, to a couple of paragraphs.

  71. Diane April 17, 2013 at 11:30 am #

    Happy Anniversary! Your site is so full of helpful information – I hope you continue for many more years!

    • Diane April 17, 2013 at 11:32 am #

      Oops – I wondered why people were commenting about titles – I clicked the comment box before the contest box. I almost always use a title and I like to add as much journaling as I need to tell the story behind the photo. (sometimes a little sometimes a lot!)

  72. Simmone Daughdrill April 17, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    I always have a title and use a variety of supplies for it. My love right now is my Silhouette Cameo. I have journaling on my layouts 99% of the time. I believe that is what scrapbooking is all about. Thanks for the giveaway!

  73. Deb M April 17, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    I almost always use titles, but I’m not big on journaling. Thanks for the chance to win! Happy Anniversary!

  74. Shirley April 17, 2013 at 11:36 am #

    I almost always put a title on a page. Depending on the page, I might put the journaling on its own page (my stories tend to be looooong and so they often require a page of their own! :) ).

  75. carolyn April 17, 2013 at 11:40 am #

    I always include a title and some journeling. I usually do my title in letter stickers/thickers. Sometimes I stamp the title. I try to always include journaling even if it is only who, what, where and when.

  76. Candice S. in Colorado April 17, 2013 at 11:45 am #

    A title is a must-have for me…it’s what captures my eye first when I view a page and it anchors me into the page…a good title makes me want to view the page…read the journaling, etc. As far as journaling goes, I always journal something…sometimes a lot, sometimes just enough. It’s important for me that my kids, or future persons viewing my scrapbooks know what the photos mean to me. I want them to know what I was thinking, what we were doing, how we felt, etc. For me, no journaling makes a page less interesting. My grandma scrapped a lot, but often times there is nothing in her albums that tells me who the people are, or where they were, etc. and I soooo wish I was able to know more.

  77. Peggy Pilgrim April 17, 2013 at 11:49 am #

    I always use a title on my scrapbook and mini book pages. In many cases, I also add a subtitle.

  78. Judy Stiles April 17, 2013 at 11:50 am #

    I usually like to put a title on my page, but do not always journal on every page. Thanks for the opportunity to win … great giveaway!

  79. Kelly April 17, 2013 at 11:50 am #

    Love the classes and instructions and oh, the layouts!!

  80. SandyS April 17, 2013 at 11:52 am #

    Love the site and tips.

  81. flowersgal April 17, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    Happy Anniversary. Thanks for the chance to win.

  82. Jen April 17, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    I really like journaling with my pages but not always adding titles. I like the page to tell the story itself instead of the title telling you what the page is about.

    What a great giveaway!

  83. Meagan M April 17, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    I love the articles on this site and am so glad I found it a few years ago. I really enjoy listening to Debbie on PRT and The Digi Show, too! Happy Anniversary and thanks for the awesome giveaways!

  84. Roseann H April 17, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    I usually add a title, and journal by hand most of the time. I have journaled on the computer, also.

  85. Janelle April 17, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    I usually add a title using a word or phrase pulled from the journaling. I write a TON (probably too much!)!

  86. Leaf April 17, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    I usually am all about the pictures. I often have just enough title or journaling to identify event and date, and maybe people my family does not know. I know that later generations may not recognize some of the people, so I am trying to do better.

  87. Dawn April 17, 2013 at 1:17 pm #

    I try to include at least a title but I am horrible at journaling so I usually leave it out.

  88. Rosalie April 17, 2013 at 1:38 pm #

    What great giveaways.

  89. Leticia E April 17, 2013 at 1:40 pm #

    Happy 5 years!!
    Titles are a must for my pages! They look incomplete with out a title. My titles aren’t always big or flashy. Sometimes I just have a short, direct sentence over my journaling. That’s just me.

  90. Christa L April 17, 2013 at 2:04 pm #

    I try to include a title on my pages, but occasionally do not. I also try to journal more than the 5 w’s if possible unless I am just documenting an event where I do not have much else to say. My journaling is always the last thing for me to do as it seems to take the most time and work for me and is not as fun. I think that it is important, but it is hard to get done. I have a lot of layouts sitting on my hard drive that are all done except for the journaling.

  91. Marie April 17, 2013 at 2:20 pm #

    Lately I have been messy with mixed media….always journaling maybe a title and not always even a photo! Love learning art! Happy Anniversary!

  92. andrea (Ladyofthelake) April 17, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

    Happy Anniversary! Congrats and thanks for the giveaway!

  93. glee April 17, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

    love tradit; hybrid and digi scrapping. Whatever works best at that moment. Have years of old photos that will be done trad and almost all my new ones will be digi.

  94. tina kuhlmann April 17, 2013 at 2:37 pm #

    i always use a tittle but journaling is a hit or miss.

  95. Christine N April 17, 2013 at 2:52 pm #

    I almost always have a title on my page and have some journaling. To me scrapbooking is storytelling, so I always at least write a couple of sentences on my layouts.

  96. Angie April 17, 2013 at 3:00 pm #

    I almost always have a title on my pages, but journal less than half the time.

  97. Hettie H April 17, 2013 at 4:25 pm #

    I always add a title and journaling to my scrapbook pages.

  98. Melanie April 17, 2013 at 4:30 pm #

    My journaling is usually not too long and gets right to the point, either handwritten or typed. I’ve found that I like Courier New for its crispness. A title is generally on the pages but I am pretty bad at them. =[

  99. Kaly April 17, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

    Yay! Love giveways and love Get It Scrapped!

    • Kaly April 17, 2013 at 5:09 pm #

      Oops. Comment box and giveaway box are different!

      I like to let my pictures shine most of the time, so I’d say I have a title and some journaling about half the time.

  100. Jana April 17, 2013 at 5:11 pm #

    Love this site for inspiration and learning. Thank you!

  101. caz April 17, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

    thanks for the chance to win! I always include a Title on my layouts but the amount of journaling can really vary from a few sentences to lots!

  102. Heather April 17, 2013 at 5:44 pm #

    I usually have a title, but if not I just journal… but I try to always have journaling on my pages… I need to share the story:)

  103. Sandy April 17, 2013 at 6:07 pm #

    I usually use a title but very little in the way of journaling – usually just the date and location.

    Happy anniversary!

  104. Melanie S. April 17, 2013 at 6:15 pm #

    It depends on the type of page, though mostly titles and thoughtful journaling. When I’m doing artsy pages I’m open wide – anything goes.

  105. Kathy Martin April 17, 2013 at 6:19 pm #

    I don’t always put a title on my pages and sometimes journaling is very short.

  106. Mary April 17, 2013 at 6:32 pm #

    Happy Anniversary!

  107. MaryAnn April 17, 2013 at 6:43 pm #

    I have a title on 99% of my layouts… just doesn’t feel complete without one. Same with journaling, whether it’s just a few details or a more complicated store, I like journaling on my pages to make them feel complete.

    Happy Anniversary from Renfrew County!

  109. CaroleMac April 17, 2013 at 6:46 pm #

    Happy Anniversary Debbie, Tami and Amy and the whole team!! Here’s the many more!!
    I struggle with title… yes, every page has one but I have a hard time choosing fonts, alphas etc. Also every page has some form of journalling but I do usually keep it hidden or ‘tucked’ behind somewhere
    thx for the fun opportunity,

  110. Sandra Bunch April 17, 2013 at 7:09 pm #

    I always use a title and always tell the story with some decent journaling. My titles are often part of the journaling, like part of a sentence.
    Thanks for the chance to win :)

  111. Melinda T April 17, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

    I always include a title and journaling! Journaling will vary depending on how much I want to say.

  112. Jennifer Brooks April 17, 2013 at 7:44 pm #

    Thanks for the great giveaways

  113. J April 17, 2013 at 7:45 pm #

    Thank you for the fun give away!

      Sometimes I add titles and sometimes I don’t. Same with journaling but I am getting better at adding it and writing more stories.

  114. Kristan Wun April 17, 2013 at 7:48 pm #

    I have finally come around to titles, I didn’t use to like them and I don’t journal on every page. Thanks!

  115. Diane Judy April 17, 2013 at 8:15 pm #

    I usually title my pages but I am worlds worst at journaling. I just have a terrible time writing on my pages, especially my own handwriting which I feel is messy.

  116. Ruth April 17, 2013 at 8:18 pm #

    Thanks for the giveaway. I like to have a title on my pages and sometimes journalling.

  117. Cindi April 17, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

    Happy Anniversary! I am really enjoying this site. Great info. I usually include a title and journaling, but sometimes my title is part of my journaling tag. I find myself doing it this way more so on my vintage and heritage pages. Good luck all!

  118. Kelley fewer April 17, 2013 at 8:31 pm #

    I always add a title, and I think the journaling is important for future generations, to record your story.

    Shine on!

  119. Lilola April 17, 2013 at 9:26 pm #

    Love all the giveaways. I usually have a title on my pages and always have journalling! It’s important to tell the stories. Thanks for the chance to win.

  121. Michelle Van Overbeke April 17, 2013 at 10:07 pm #

    I almost always include journaling because I am usually trying to tell a story. The title is hard for me. I always feel like it is too cliché or themey. I made that word up. Thanks for the chance!

  122. huiqi April 17, 2013 at 10:08 pm #

    thanks for the giveaway!

  123. devi April 17, 2013 at 10:48 pm #

    I don’t always do titles. Mostly I don’t. To me journaling is the key part of scrapbooking. So, I try to add journaling for every page I make.

  124. Bernadette Gerich April 17, 2013 at 10:57 pm #

    I always include a title and journaling, usually a few paragraphs but at least a few sentences with the basic details covered.

  125. Diane (diney) April 18, 2013 at 4:43 am #

    Happy Anniversary! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  126. Terri Cannell April 18, 2013 at 4:46 am #

    I use a title and journal {but struggle with both}.
    Thanks for a chance to win.

    Happy anniversary! I use titles and journaling :)

  128. Karen April 18, 2013 at 8:31 am #

    Love your website!

  129. Jana Oliveira April 18, 2013 at 9:17 am #

    I struggle with Titles so not always I put them but always add try to write as much as the page let’s me.

  130. Korey April 18, 2013 at 9:33 am #

    I like titles on pages. I think it explains my pages. I include journaling when I think it fits. Sometimes I have a hard time journaling because it may just be a random picture that I like just because, not because there is a story to tell. Just a great picture that spoke to me.

  131. Laura April 18, 2013 at 10:58 am #

    I almost always use a Title on my pages. Most often there is some journaling. The amount depends on how self-explanatory the pictures are in illustrating my story. Although if I am struggling I may just leave all off just so I can put pictures on the page.

  132. Lisa B April 18, 2013 at 11:18 am #

    Wonderful giveaway! Thanks.

  133. Betheny April 18, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

    Love all the inspiration found here! I do not always include a title on my scrap pages. However, if a title will tell the whole story I will use an embellished title.

  134. Loralynn April 18, 2013 at 1:05 pm #

    Awesome giveaways!

  135. CL April 18, 2013 at 1:38 pm #

    I usually have a title. I’m comfortable with journaling, but don’t always include. Appreciate ideas for combining the two.

  136. Amy M. April 18, 2013 at 8:58 pm #

    Thank you so much for the chance!

  137. Hallie April 18, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

    I always include a title and almost always include some journaling. I make yearly photobooks and I want to be able to remember what was going on.

  138. Kim April 19, 2013 at 12:23 am #

    Happy 5th Anniversary!
    I usually journal on my pages, even if it’s just a line or two. Titles are a different story though. I struggle with titles so sometimes it’s easier to just skip them. =)

  139. Edythe Nadler April 19, 2013 at 5:22 am #

    Happy 5th Anniversary. Great giveaways! Thank You.

  140. Chris Lawson April 19, 2013 at 5:25 am #

    Fantastic giveaways – thank you

  141. Claudine C. April 19, 2013 at 7:03 am #

    I haven’t scrap booked in awhile but I would love to get back to it, maybe this will give me the jump that I need. I always add a title to my pages, it’s sets the tone for the entire page.

  142. Jeanie April 19, 2013 at 7:22 am #

    Happy Anniversary!

  143. Michelle Huegel April 19, 2013 at 7:52 am #

    I almost always have a title and some journaling, with the rare exception. Enough journaling to tell the story, sometimes just a few lines, sometimes a large block :)

  144. Theresa April 19, 2013 at 8:51 am #

    I use a title on some pages, usually the first page of a section. For example, I always scrapbook my vacations so I will put where we went. Then the next 10 pages are pictures of what we did. I journal on those pages.

  145. paula collins April 19, 2013 at 9:41 am #

    I do not use titles very often. I like to use a lot of old vintage things. Flowers, lace, and fabric. Happy Birthday! What a great giveaway.

  146. Barbara Smiley April 19, 2013 at 10:16 am #

    I like to use titles for section dividers in my albums, but not necessarily on each page. My albums tend to have multiple pages per event or theme (such as school years, sports, Christmas, vacations, etc.) Thank you so much for the chance to win the giveaways during this wonderful celebration!

  147. Carol April 19, 2013 at 10:42 am #

    I use titles to provide a quick reference. Otherwise the use of words is just enough to personalize.
    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

  148. Kristina williams April 19, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    I would love….. To win this! Thank you for sponsoring this!

  149. Kristina Williams April 19, 2013 at 4:18 pm #

    Titles work on most pages …. Gives a not more definition,….thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  150. ruth April 19, 2013 at 8:50 pm #

    i always include both

  151. Amie April 19, 2013 at 8:54 pm #

    It’s always different. Sometimes there are no words at all except for embellishments

  152. Barbara Macaskill April 19, 2013 at 8:59 pm #

    It depends on the page whether I o a title and how much journaling I do. Some pictures say what needs to be said all on their own!

  153. Theresa April 19, 2013 at 9:02 pm #

    Happy Anniversary. I usually do a title page for the main subject then journal the rest.

  154. Rebecca K April 19, 2013 at 9:46 pm #

    i almost always use a title. I prefer lots of journaling, but it doesn’t always work out that way…

  155. Adrienne April 19, 2013 at 9:57 pm #

    I almost always use a title on my page and journaling is a must for me. Sometimes it’s just a bullet here & there and other times it’s a full blown story!

  156. Alquafea April 20, 2013 at 2:19 am #

    What a wonderful giveaway for your anniversary. Happy 5 years.

  157. Sandy Lewis April 20, 2013 at 2:21 am #

    Can’t even believe you’ve been doing this for 5 years! I’d choose the membership. I must admit that I sometimes forget to put in a title until afterwards… and it looks that way. So glad you are here to help me with that and my other “issues”.

  158. eunice April 20, 2013 at 3:30 am #

    Minimal title, almost no journaling because it’s my habit. Really need to try to improve that. Thanks for all your great ideas.

  159. Renee Barber April 20, 2013 at 4:27 am #

    I am a project lifer at the moment, so I use lots of journaling, and I do a title on most page spreads. Occasionally, the following spread is a continuation of the later, and I don’t typically title them. Thank you for a chance to win!!

  160. Linda April 20, 2013 at 5:19 am #

    Always use journaling. almost always include a title. sometimes throw a picture in!

  161. Kathleen D April 20, 2013 at 6:44 am #

    Congratulations! Wow time flies! I’m already a a newsletter subscriber too.

  162. susan April 20, 2013 at 10:00 am #

    it really dependson the subject of my page/album. if it is more than a 2-page spread, i will do a title page.
    congrats on the milestone!

  163. Karen April 20, 2013 at 1:48 pm #

    I digital scrap and often add a title. I try to journal the stories, but sometimes it’s just photo captions. I know you’re in the Boston area… I hope you are well.

  164. Debbie Eslinger April 20, 2013 at 9:59 pm #

    I don’t always use a title on every page esp if chronological
