Journaling Options

Sometimes I have a scrapbook page half way finished when I realize I have not left any room for the journaling. Other times, the story behind the picture is so extensive that it overtakes the picture on the page.

What am I to do?

Hidden journaling is the answer!


With the kiddos back in school and the summer vacation memories are still fresh in our minds, it is time to get those photos in albums.  

Today I am going to show you how to create a fun page embellishment that can double to hold your journaling


  • Cut out library card holder and tag and assemble.
    You can usually find patterns if you Google the term or use a die cut that you may already have.
  • Cut out decorative label and ink edges of holder and label.
  • With a sponge, apply embossing ink to the edge of the decorative label and emboss with E P Lite Bronze Patina.

  • Cut embellishments from Sticky Paper and emboss with embossing powders and glitters.
  • Place decorative label to the front of the library card holder and embellish with your embossed pieces.
  • Now, the tag that is inside the library card can house your journaling while the library card itself, adds interest to your page.
As a Mini Album:
Make as many of the library card holders as you want pages for your mini album. Punch holes into the bottom of the holders and bind together with ribbon.

Do you have family vacation pictures that are waiting to be placed in albums?
