Hello! For this week, we are focusing on journaling and prompts in our writing. Diana and I (Cindy) have created two FREE digital downloadable cutting files. These files are easy to use with your Silhouette, Cameo, Cricut die-cut machines.
Diana tends to have an easier time journaling or telling the story when the layout is based on an event. For your next page, think about using an event and all of the fun photos you took at that event as the jumping off point in your story telling.
SUPPLIES: Pinwheel: (Jump Rope paper) Destination: (Postcard paper, Embellishment Bundle, Label Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers, Circle & Tag Stickers, Chipboard Stickers, Letter Stickers)
In Diana's layout, her son was at an event with his baseball team. It lasted for hours and she took so many photos. Diana wanted to make sure that she captured all of the different stations he attended and the professional ball players he encountered.
I absolutely adore Diana's digital cutting file and how she incorporated the circles into her multi-photo layout design. The circles hold a 4", a 3.5" and a 2.5" photo space and would be perfect to hold journaling, too.
We know every photo has a story to tell, but there are times when there aren't many words that evoke the emotion one wants to write down on paper. My approach to the creative journaling challenge was create a layout using short sentences and phrases that tell my story through a non-event photo.
Supplies: Destination: (Atlas, Label Stickers, Letter Stickers) Pinwheel: (Apricot Tree, Flip Flops, Kite Strings, Ice Cream Truck, Picnic Basket, Embellishment Bundle, Circle & Tag Stickers, Label Stickers, Letter Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers) Sweet Shoppe: (Gumball, Licorice Whip, Candy Stick, Marshmellow, Embellishment Bundle, Label Stickers, Letter Stickers, Chit Chat Stickers)
In doing so, I used a colorful mix of letter stickers to emphasize my story throughout my page. The words are straight forward and to the point, completely inspired by my daughters love of giving kisses.
Using the letter stickers to create your journaling is definitely a fun way to enhance your page design. They make great embellishment add-ons to any layout design.
