Most scrapbooker’s choose to use their computer for journaling. This is usually because they do not like their own handwriting. My hope is that you will at least do a few layouts a year in your own handwriting, but at the same time, I also understand the flow and look that only a font has.
I’m often asked where I get the fonts for the journaling blocks and titles that are on my scrapbook layouts. There is no set location, but I tend to watch the idea books and magazines for cute fonts and then I look them up or buy them. Sometimes I will go on a font hunt when I am looking for something in particular. Here is a new and updated list of a few of my favorite places to either buy or download ‘perfect for scrapbooking’ fonts.
I love this site because almost all of the fonts featured are absolutely perfect for journaling fonts on a scrapbooking layout.
