"I love to include journaling on all of my layouts, however I'm not a fan of my own handwriting! (I know I'm not alone in this!) To help me get over this and still add a personal touch, I use my favorite set of tiny alpha stamps.

It takes a few minutes to stamp out each individual letter, however there is an added benefit to this: Intention.  The time spent writing out my sentences, allows me to put thought into the journaling and really connect with my photo or story.

Playing with paper and getting messy is wonderful, but adding that deeper connection to the layout with a bit of journaling has really brought me back to the reason why I love to scrapbook." ~ Stephanie

    GREAT LAYOUT!
    YOU ARE REALLY POPPING THE COLORS AND THOSE TINY TEXT STAMPS ARE A TERRIFIC WAY TO JOURNAL!

    Amazing layout! TFS!

    Great page Stephanie! I love the black..makes the layout really standout. And your stamping looks amazing. I thought you’d typed it out on a typewriter!

    I had alpha stamps like that, but didn’t have the patience for them. I can see from you work that it was truly worth the effort. Great look!

    Interesting technique, must be time consuming but you did a fantastic job, looks like it was typed.

    Such a nice layout Stephanie. My sister lives near Halifax. I’m going to visit her in July. Love the picture of your cat. 🙂

    Oh Summer steals the show with this magnificent page! I love the journaling – and with you on the hand writing. I had to look twice – thought this was from a typewriter! Lovely, lovely ♥

    What a fabulous layout. Your kitty is just too cute.

    Love your journaling technique! I believe in intention…for the soul, especially in doing any kind of art. We are connected to it that way. (I love Dr. Wayne Dyer’s book The Power of Intention!)I saw (and have been wanting) those alpha stamps at HL and a holder to put them on to be able to stamp a word or phrase if one so chooses. My next purchase for sure! Thanks for the inspiration!
