we all know how important journaling is to tell our stories.
and i, myself am totally in love with everything the industry
has to offer these days that helps us with our journaling.
Journaling spots, rub ons, stamps. You name it --its out there.
My personal favorite is journaling spots-- they are just so much fun.
I have not one but TWO baskets on my desk full of journaling spots,
tags, papers. They are a much on just about every layout. I love layering
them. They can also be used as an embellishment. They are so very versatile.
Whats your favorite journaling product? do tell. here are a few examples
of what i like to do with them:

I actually like using plain ol' index cards - lined or unlined. You can stamp on them, distress them, etc. and make them into whatever you want - but they're always great for journaling!! - Melissa :-)

I would love to say I use them as much as I collect them... but so far not the case. Your LOs are a great inspiration for sure - I'll go dig them out of my stash now and vow to use them more... thanks!
