Journaling with Meghann Andrew

Hello there. It’s Meghann here with you today, and for me, there is never a bigger time-saver than when a kit dictates my story. Sometimes I really struggle to figure out what story to tell, and I spend time scrolling through my iPhoto app, taking away from my much-needed creative time.

This month, it was the “you say the cutest things,” tag from the February exclusive kit that motivated me to tell a story. I paired the tag with the new Little Moments collection to create a fun layout about my daughter.

“I Love You Big Much” Supplies: February exclusive kit,  Little Moments paper collection pack, Little Moments journaling tags, Little Moments bits and pieces, “The Story Of” stamp set, Jonah alphabet stamp set, Jonah labels, letter & number stickers- black.

When I saw the “you say the cutest things” tag, I immediately remembered that I had taken a photo of my daughter, her arms raised, saying that she loved me, “BIG much!” and I knew this was the story to tell. I loved that I could easily pair the colors in this month’s kit with the Little Moments collection to create a fun, colorful layout.

As usual, my favorite part of creating the layout was the stamping! The new “The Story Of” stamp is perfect for starting your layout stories and includes sayings like, “this was,” “you are,” and “today was.” I chose “you said” to start my title, and stamped it in grey & colors to match the Little Moments collection down the right side of my photo. I topped the stamped words with the “I love you to the moon and back” tag, which I cut so that I could top with the “BIG” label, stamped with the Jonah alphabet, and the “much” tag, created using the black alphabet stickers.

To complete the layout, I sewed through the cute multicolored hearts from the Little Moments journaling tag, added a tiny tab of ribbon and a few puffy heart stickers to create a simple, happy layout that tells an important story.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check out the February exclusive kit to find out what stories it will spark for you!
