For the Love of Journaling: Bundle No.2 (and win!)

Hiya! Happy Friday!!!! Today I’ve got some brand new – super cool – journaling aids for ya…

Annnnnd…. a chance to win $5.75 to my store because I’m in a mood and maybe it’ll cheer me up. :) And hopefully it’ll make someone’s mood happy, too.

Okay, first things first. I’ve really, really enjoyed the journaling portion of the “For the Love of” collection. Mostly because it’s stuff I really enjoy scrapping with but also because I like seeing how other scrappers utilize them. Early on in my own scrapbooking I didn’t even think about journaling. I labored over choosing the right title and then tortured myself over making it look cool. Those are still fun and often important parts of a page but I’ve found a brand new lease on scrapping over the last year or so after allowing myself to get over my shy factor and journal as much or as little as I want on my pages. I still struggle sometimes with feeling like I’m putting myself out there for dissection – in fact, it’s something that I struggle with in many parts of my life – whether I put my pages in a public gallery or just in book for my family. Anytime someone’s going to see it I struggle. Because of that, journaling has become a bit of an exercise in letting go as much as it has become a vital part of recording my memories.

And these goodies make it fun:)

For the Love of Journaling: Bundle No.2

This bundle includes 3 full products: The Brushes (emphatic), The Brushes (get in line), and The Frames (with room) and what’s more…. if you grab the bundle you get all three for the price of just two!! Of course, though, all three are also available individually for your convenience. The preview don’t show everything, either. The brush packs are huge (and come in pngs too) and the frames also come plain.    (and check out Bundle No.1 while you’re there if you’ve missed it!)

Other stuff you may have missed…
Today is also Designer’s Choice Friday at CatScrap and I have TONS of products in the category at 50% off. No throwaways, either – all stuff I love. Don’t miss it!!! Also, for Trendsetter Tuesday this week I released an element add-on to Pops, my recently release Dad-lovin kit. I got lots of emailed requests for them so I caved – anything to make my people happy.

    I like to journal on my pages, usually not a ton, but at least a paragraph or two, whatever seems like enough to tell the story!

    Honestly – depends on the layout – I have done layouts that are all journaling with NO Pictures and others that are just the photo and title – because sometimes it speaks for itself. While scrapbooking I always try to remember it’s about the photos and the story – not necessarily the elements & papers.

    Anyway – thanks for the chance to win!! Love the bundle!

    I WANT to do more journaling on my pages but struggle with some of the same things you expressed. Many times I even find putting a title on my page to be difficult (my daughter scolds me for that all the time).
    I love the bundle. Thank you for the opportunity to win it!

    Sometimes I struggle with journaling and sometimes it comes super easy. I really like when it comes easy, but I usualy do not worry that others will read it. I journal like I am talking to whoever I am making the page for. I am currently pregnant with #6 (big surprise because i had my tubes tied) i try to journal on the babies pages so he will know even tho I forgot him I still love him and am so happy he is coming to us!

    I love to journal. I’m a writer by nature, I think! Some LOs don’t need much, or even any journaling, but I usually do at least a little. I want to remember the moment, who was there, how I felt, when it was, what was special, etc. and that’s not always all in the pictures. Maybe I journal to compensate for subpar photography skills. ;)

    The worries you expressed are similar to the things I struggle with. I feel a bit icky thinking that people may draw conclusions about me based on what I write.

    BUT, I remember how sad I am when I look at old photo’s from my Mum’s or Granny’s era and there’s no details. This helps motivate me heaps to get a story down. Sometimes its just a few basics, sometimes I write a long story.

    Most of my pages aren’t usually text-heavy, but when I do journal, it’s for a subject close to my heart. :)

    I find it hard to come up with journalling… but I try more and more. It’s important!

    I love to journal especially when it comes to my boys. There are so many moments that I want to remember forever. sometimes I think my journaling sounds redonkulous, but I try to write it like I would say it I guess. Thanks for this awesome chance to win. I love all of your stuff!!!

    Such a fun series! But then I love everything you do! :D Journaling… sometimes the photos pretty much say it all, but I do love to tell a story too. Sometimes I get stuck for what to say though. Or sometimes I say too much and have a hard time editing myself down to a reasonable length! Thank goodness for adjustable point size, kerning, and leading! :D

    Love them even though I am the worst journaler ever!!!! Read a really great article by Stacy Julian though that is making me think I need to go to journaling rehab to get better.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!!!
