"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
