If you read My Crafty Life regularly, you already know that journaling is very important to me. It's the main thing that separates my scrapbooks from my photo albums. Sometimes, though, I find that I don't have enough room on my layout for journaling. This is especially true if I use a lot of photos on my layout, as I did in the Disney layout below. Even though it's a 2-page layout, I included so many photos that I just couldn't squeeze anything else in without making the page look too crowded. So I cut my journaling into strips.
It's very easy. Just write or type your journaling onto whatever paper/cardstock you've chosen. (I usually hand-write my journaling; but in this case, the Disney font was just perfect. I used regular acid-free printer paper.) If you're handwriting it, be sure to start every sentence on a new line. In either case, leave a lot of room in between your lines. Then cut the lines apart, using either scissors for a free-form look, or a paper trimmer for a more uniform look. To add a little dimension, you can also ink the edges.
Journaling is so important to me that I feel that I have to include it on every layout - even if it's just a few lines. Thanks for stopping by! See you next week (or sooner)!
