Hi, everyone:

I kept an online journal for a few years, and now am looking to use excerpts to fill in some (photo) gaps in my scrapbook.

I'm trying to find an interesting, attractive way of displaying the text - thinking either a subtly patterned paper (it would be great if there was something that looked like a journal page) to just print it directly on, or a neat layout idea.

It would be a page for a month - with 6-8 mini paragraphs of items from that month. So I don't want to have to hand write it out, but I could certainly cut and paste from the text file into a more creative format.

(I scrap in 8.5x11, so printing is easy.)

Thanks in advance for any advice!

You could print out your own writing paper. Here's a link to several different kinds:

Or here are some pp's that may work:

The poster above gave you great links. I think almost every manufacturer carries lined or graph paper.

The back side of these Cosmo Cricket pp are lined or graph. Both make good journaling spots. You could also buy or make journaling tags.

Thanks so much both of you!

I had tried searching the paper selection here, but didn't come up with any of those!

I like the idea of making/using tags for some of them, but not sure how that would work when the whole page would be the tags. Hmmm.

Not sure if this is helpful, but I needed some filler pages for DH's album. It's tidbits of info on the USMC. I scrap 12x12, so I had lots of space to fill.

Thanks - that is really useful just to see blocks of text presented in a creative way.

Maybe I could some sort of modified calendar template, with big boxes for the days with entries I'm using.

I have seen several really cool layouts recently that featured a ton of journaling in different ways.
Here are a couple of mine if you're interested. Any of the handwritten text could be done on the computer as well.

If you want use calendar type blocks, I think either Day-Timer or At-A-Glance has online versions of their dayplanner pages. MS Word also has different styles of calendar pages.
