March Journaling Challenge – Childhood

March Journaling Challenge – Childhood
by Jenifer Juris

This month we are celebrating all of the many aspects of childhood. We hope you’ll join us for this fun challenge topic!

Prompt: Childhood

Share with us something to do with childhood. It can be about your own or someone else’s. It can be about something personal, like a memory or experience or it can be about a favorite toy or place. It can be as broad as you like and be about the nature of children or it can be about something specific to you. Just remember, photos aren’t required and feel free to share only what you’re comfortable with.

Things to Ponder:

  • Facts: Age, Name of Person (You or Someone else), Date(s), etc.
  • Feelings: How does this thing about childhood make you feel?
  • Focus: What’s the one thing about this memory you want to make sure you share?

Thinking about these things can help you recall memories and share a more polished story. Spend as little or as much time jotting things down as you like. Most importantly, have fun sharing about yourself, because your story matters.

Challenge Requirements:

  • The only requirement is that your project must include some form

Quick Sticker Title

Quick Sticker Title
by Jen White

Make a title pop off the page by turning it into a sticker with a super fast style.

The Problem

I am wanting to add a title to my scrapbook page in a super-cool brush script font. But, as you can see in the screenshot below, the title is blending in and I cannot really see it on my page.

A Bad Solution

With a brush script font like this, it’s never an option to add a drop shadow or bevel or glow.

A Good Solution

I will turn the title into a stylish sticker by applying a multi-part style.

Step One: Create a Workspace

  • Create a new 12×12 inch document (File > New > Blank File) at 300 ppi with a white background. (PS: Choose File > New.)

I will be demonstrating this technique on a scrapbook page I already have started.

Step Two: Type a Word

  • Get the Horizontal Type tool.
  • In the Tool Options, open the Font Picker and choose a font. I’m using Maxim Regular by Vera Kudryashova.
  • Set the Size to 155 pts.
  • Click on the Color Chip, then double click on the Darker Cool Brown swatch from the

February Journaling Challenge – Someone You Love

February Journaling Challenge – Someone You Love
by Jenifer Juris

Let’s celebrate February, the love month, by honoring those we care about. Join us in journaling about someone you love.

Prompt: Someone You Love

Who is someone you love? We want to read about them. It can be anyone from a spouse, to a special friend, to a person you cared about who has passed on.

Things to ponder:

  • Facts: Their name, their relationship to you, their character traits, details you love about them, physical attributes, etc.
  • Feelings: How does this person make you feel? How has the relationship impacted your life?
  • Focus: What’s the main thing you want to share about this person?

Thinking about these things can help you recall memories and share a more polished story. Spend as little or as much time jotting things down as you like. Most importantly, have fun sharing about yourself, because your story matters.

Challenge Requirements:

  • The only requirement is that your project must include some form of journaling that has to do with this month’s prompt. For 6 alternative journaling ideas, read Journaling With Style by Jenifer Juris.
  • Photos are NOT required, but they can help tell a story if

New Year Repair Resolutions with Super Glue

With the New Year upon us, it’s once again time to compile your annual list of things to improve on. A new start often brings with it promises of going back to the gym; laying off certain foods; or dropping any nagging, bad habits. What many people don’t think about are the small fixes around the house that need attention.

These repairs are all too often neglected because they’re not always noticeable, and the excuse “I’ll get around to it eventually” is just too easy to make. If there was ever a time to get around to it, it’s the New Year. Start 2017 by getting your hands dirty and putting your Super Glue to good use, because the best resolutions are the ones which truly make you feel accomplished.
