Journaling for your scrapbook pages doesn’t have to be difficult, but sometimes it is!
You may feel as though you have nothing to say.
You find yourself writing things like, “It was fun!” or “What a beautiful day!” or you just add the names, date and place and call it done.
Or… you leave the journaling for later. Obviously you’ll have a moment of inspiration and you’ll know exactly what to say later, right?
Do you find pages that are missing journaling and you have no idea what you meant to say?
Maybe that’s just me?
But… I doubt it. 😉
That’s why I’m sharing my best tips for journaling. I’ve felt the pain and I’ve done a lot of work to figure out how to make it better.

JOURNLING TIP: Use a text conversation.
There’s an easy way to include really relevant journaling on your layouts, use a text conversation.
You can take a screen capture of a conversation and print it out, or just write/type the conversation to include on your layout.
Even a short conversation can be very captivating when you’re helping illustrate a story for your layout.
Here’s an example of a layout I created sharing a text.
As you can see… it doesn’t have to be a long conversation to be a good one!
You can find more ways to include other people into journaling for your layouts here:

I’ll be back next week with another journaling tip.
