I expect that you make a work using an original flower. Let’s make a great work using Pebbles Inc.collection!
DT member Debbie created this scenery using the stencils to doodle and chalk for a cloud background.
Finding the right words for journaling, or the right title for my layouts has always been my number 1 problem when it comes to scrapbooking. I often turn to quotes and lyrics to help me find those words of inspiration and today I thought I’d share some finds with you.
I love a good quote…who doesn’t right? I have 2 sites that I frequent when I’m looking for the right words to express on a layout or project. www.writtendecor.com is actually a vinyl lettering site for home decor, however, they have a lot of quotes organized on there and they are perfect for scrapbooking as well. The other site I frequent is www.quotegarden.com this site has a quote on everything…I mean EVERYTHING. Take a look to see what I mean! There are plenty of quotes and sayings there to help jump start your journaling or put that perfect touch onto your project.
Another thing that I love to use for my journaling and titles are lyrics. I am a big music lover and some music just has the best messages within the lyrics or maybe while you’re listening to a ballad you may find that they are describing exactly how you feel about a love one. I like to go to www.lyrics.com and www.azlyrics.com to look up the lyrics to make sure I’m copying them right, some of my favorite layouts are ones I’ve used lyrics for the journaling and if you haven’t tried it, next time you’re in a journaling slump try it out!
Finding the right words can sometimes be difficult, but thanks to the internet, books, magazines, etc. we can find someone else’s words that will fit just perfectly! I hope I have given you some resources to help in your journaling and if you have any tips or sites you’d like to share when it comes to journaling, please leave a comment! We’d love to hear them!
Pam used the Downtown line in this great progression layout. This is a great way to show how your child has grown every year. Great idea Pam!
DT member Mireille used the So Tweet and some stitching to create this layout of her little ones first day of kindergarten.
Our last layout for inspiration comes from Susan. This is an excellent example of a white space layout and a good way to make your scrappy supplies stretch. I love the different strips from different lines make up a perfect accent to her page!
