Here is another layout that I did based on a Studio Calico Sketch. I especially love when they post the sketch with no layout.....WHY????? you may ask! Simply said, it takes away the temptation to scraplift....there is NOTHING I can copy. I am therefore forced to use the products and imagination that I have. For this layout I used the Stamping Bella Scrappy Stamps...which are the Round memory block and Today memory block. I LOVE these stamps for journalling. Very often, I hear people say that they don't include journalling on there layouts, because they don't like there handwriting. Firstly, remember....your handwriting is UNIQUE....in years to come, someone will really love that it is authentic, it is real and it was a part of YOU. These stamps are great for journalling because they do not require alot of writing. It can be as simple as the date, the day and a thought.
I encourage YOU to do a layout based on the space in which you craft....I know it is an important part of our lives...it is where we hide out and spend all the spare time that we can. It is definately MY best spot in the house (besides my garden.)
Go ahead and do a layout.....don't just think about it!
