Hello there! I’ve mentioned a time or two that my preference is to journal on the computer. Those that know me know that I usually have a lot of words to say. OK, I’m a little talkative! But when it comes to handwriting journaling, I clam up. So, the computer it is. I even have a small PC and printer that I take to crops to make sure I don’t forgo the journaling on my layouts.
But for some layouts, the photos and title tell you most of the story. Unless I have more sentiment or there is something interesting that might not be readily apparent from the photos, I’ve been drawn lately to making journaling “labels.” These are simply descriptions that I type up and run through the computer on cardstock.
This layout is a group of photos from my birthday earlier this month. I like the pop of color from the “labels” and the font is perfect. I simply ran the cardstock through my printer, cut out the labels and then used my trusty Xyron X tool to get adhesive on the back. This way, I get all of the edges to lay flat.

These journaling “labels” can be a fun, easy way to add some color and additional journaling to your layouts. And, yes, they do count as journaling! LOL!
