Using Photo Frames for Journaling

Lately I have lots of journaling to do on my layouts. It's always a bit of a challenge to find just the right journaling tag or space to put your journaling. Lately, I've had a lot of fun using photo frames for journaling

For today's layout I started with paper from Pink Paislee's Atlas collection. I'm really in love with the rich tones in atlas. There's lots of great greens and blues in Atlas that are all brought together with a bit of gray.

When we were in Ireland, my husband fell in love with bangers and mash, but this is the first place he ordered it. Usually I'm the one snapping photos, but my husband loved his meal so much that he took a picture of it! Definitely something that needed to be scrapped, and a story that needed to be told. I didn't think the shape of a journaling tag looked right in this space, so I grabbed a photo frame from the Atlas Instagram Card Pack. To turn it into a journaling card, I just took a bit of matching cream card stock and attached it to the back of the photo frame. Now I've got a great big blank space to journal!

I used another card from the Atlas Instagram Card Pack as an embellishment on the page. It was a nice way to tie all of the elements on the page together.

I'm always looking for new ways to add journaling to my page. It seems like I can never have enough journaling cards or tags. Using photo frames for journaling is a really fun and simple way to add more journaling cards to my stash. How do you get creative with your jounaling?
