Using a Die to Create Journaling Space

I never seem to have enough space to journal. I usually like to journal on some sort of card or tag, and I just never seem to have enough of those. I often try to get creative for journaling space. Lately, I've been playing around with using a die to create journaling space. For my layout today I used the We R Memory Keeper's Lightbulb Garland Die to create a journaling card.

Being married to an electrician means he notices things like the electrical work and differences in building and electrical codes when we travel. I saw the string of lights paper in October Afternoon's Summertime Collection (in the Brick & Mortar Store at AWDML, and in the online store soon!) and thought it would be fun for documenting this quirky fact. The yellow sunburst paper is also from Summertime. I used it as a base layer for this layout, and also used it for my journaling card. To create my journaling card, I just lined up my light bulb die with the area of the paper I wanted to journal on. This paper just happened to have fun little rays for journaling. Then I ran the whole thing through my We R Memory Keepers Evolution Die Cutting Machine.

While I'm talking about dies and die cutting machines, I also want to mention that We R Memory Keepers is having 30 Days of Evolution for the entire month of August. What that means is that there are lots of fabulous projects using the Evolution on the WRMK Blog, and lots of chances to win prizes like dies and even your very own Evolution Advanced on the blog, Facebook page, and Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by!
