Journaling Cards

“I have used the gorgeous Marigold Collection for this creation.  My focus today was on journaling cards so I wanted them to feature and stand out in my creation.  I have used 2 Journaling Cards from the Foxglove pack.  The foxes in this entire collection are just too cute and fitted perfectly with my story.  I chose the card with the most amount of room for me to write on.  I layered this to one side of my photo and I placed the patterned journal card to the left.  I really loved the contrasting patterns in this and didn’t want to cover it up.  I also tucked in another journaling card from the Hollyhock pack amongst my paper layers under my photo.   I loved the fact the journaling cards are packaged as single cards so I only had to pull out what I wanted and distressed the edges.  Of course I used lots of little extras here such as the Butterfly diecuts, flair button, flags and gold foiled butterflies and words”.

Pretty Little Studio’s journaling cards are almost always my favorite part of every collection. The Marigold line is no exception – from the vintage flower seed packets to the cards with labels and ledger lines, there are so many beautiful and functional choices. I decided to create a grid-style layout featuring several of my favorites.

I treated each piece of the grid like its own little layout. I very easily could have left the journaling cards as-is for a great page, but I altered them a little bit to create additional interest and texture.

I trimmed down two of the cards to 2.5×3.5 inches, then matted them with layers of white tissue paper.

The other two cards are embellished with flair and butterflies.

The photos are printed at 3×4 inches, then trimmed down and adhered to a white mat. I stapled labels to each one for added color and to act as captions.

Besides the strips at the bottom of my layout, I didn’t need a stitch of patterned paper – the journaling cards offered plenty of color, pattern and imagery. The next time you’re creating a grid-style layout, consider using Pretty Little Studio journaling cards to fill your spaces. And don’t be afraid to alter them – your page will be beautiful!
