DIY-Journaling Cards

Hi everyone!

It seems like most of my online scrapbooking friends are putting together Project Life scrapbooks this year.

And I particularly find myself inspired by Laura O'Donnell, who shares a lot of her Project Life pages and often uses Technique Tuesday stamps on them.

She recently shared this one on her blog.

Look at all those stamps on there! I count ones from three different Technique Tuesday stamp sets!

Whenever I see one of Laura's pages, I think to myself that I really need to use my stamps more myself on my own Project Life pages. It is a great way to get more mileage out of your stamps and make yourself use them more often! 

So I was thrilled to discover the other day that Who What Where by Ali Edwards, a great Technique Tuesday stamp set for scrapbooking, is perfect for making journaling cards to use in a Project Life book.

They were so easy to make, and you can make some yourself in no time.

Here's what you do need to do:

1. Cut a stack of journaling cards from cardstock to fit in your page protectors. I made mine 2 7/8" x 3 7/8" each so I could more easily put them in and pull them out of the page pockets.

2.  Stamp one of the stamps from Who What Where by Ali Edwards on each one. I used black ink, but you could use any color of ink.

3. Apply patterned paper to the cards. If your stamping is at the bottom of the cards, slightly cover the top of the stamping with patterned paper.If your stamping is at the top of the cards, slightly cover the bottom of the journaling box with patterned paper.

4. Use markers to add a little color to the lettering.

Now they are ready to go when I am ready to add them to my Project Life album!

And while I made these cards to work with my Project Life album, I think they'd also make great journaling spots to use on a scrapbook page.

Ack! This is awesome! Now I need those stamps... :)

What a great idea! I have yet to get a project life album but I am interested in using a regular 4x6 photo album for scrapping. I'd love to see a stamp that would provide journaling lines for almost the entire 4 x 6 space. Maybe leaving a little room on either side to add mini stamps or some thin ribbon or embellishments.

Awesome! TFS :)
