Quick Tip Using Strips, Clips, Chips, Snippets and Stamps!

Hi Scribblers!

Do you not like using your own handwriting on your layouts?

Here's one page that uses 4 different ideas to add journalling quickly and easily:

1. Snippets!  Add a pre-printed saying. I've used 'Sugar & Spice and Completely Nice' as I felt the colours and phrase blended well to the tone.

2. Stripts!  Write your journalling in a word processor programme; such as Microsoft Word, Open Office, Apple iWorks Pages. Format your fonts to your liking, then print it out on the paper of your choice. I, then, cut my sentence into strips to make it fit and to add movement.

3. Clips and Chips!  Use pre-formed pre-printed alphabets to make up your words as with the 'pay-off' dominate word - BLISS! (Likewise, I also used a chipboard number for the date.)

4. Stamps! Use alphabet stamps to create your words - I used a tiny studio G set inked with Whispers watercolour pens for the 'SUN' day of the week.

The page is mainly created using Cosmo Cricket products (plus ice cream sticker from K&Co, silk flowers from an old fake Hawaiian lei) as part of my project for Shimelle's Learn Something New Every Day course.


Happy Scribing!
