This week we’re looking at journaling cards, which have seen a definite resurgence in popularly with the rise of Project Life and pocket page memory keeping. Not just for divided pages though, journaling cards work perfectly on traditional scrapbooking pages as well as cards and even mixed media projects.
We’d love to see your very own take on using 3x4, 4x6 and other sized journaling cards on your projects, whether it’s a card, a Project Life-style pocket page or a traditional scrapbook layout or even a beyond the page project. Please just make sure you use Aussie Scrap Source suppliers in your projects!
Email a picture of your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org with a note about any techniques and a brief materials lists to be in the running to win a fabulous prize pack of some of the featured products by next Sunday 22nd September.
Below are some inspiring projects from some of our brands’ design teams using journaling cards in fun and unique ways.
Amy Heller from the October Afternoon DT designed this page using the Daily Flash – Snapshots collection. We love how she has segmented her page into vertical columns of colour, like a journaling card and photograph rainbow!
In this innovative page Vivian Masket has actually printed a collage grid from her photos, and then clustered the journaling cards from the Daily Flash Snapshots line below, to create the embellishment.
Carta Bella Designer Jen Chapin created this layout using the Hello Again collection and Echo Park Photo Freedom Designer Photo Sleeves. We love how she has used both the journaling caards and her photos to handwrite her journalling on. She also shares a tutorial on how she put this page together which you can find here.
Check out this fun vacation page by Diane Payne for Bella Boulevard. She has used the Daily Details papers, which are inspired by the Project Life concept but as you can see work wonderfully with traditional scrapbook pages too.
Journaling cards and frames can also help structure a page without the divided page protectors as shown in this super cute page by Jenny Evans using the Snapshots collection.
We look forward to seeing what you can do with journalling cards in this week’s challenge!
