Use Those Journal Cards to Stretch Your Stash


Happy Thursday!  I hope wherever you are that you are healthy, happy, and staying sane 😊  CTM Robin here back with another tip to stretch your stash.  I know YOU know Liz makes the cutest journal cards, but have you thought about making an entire layout using just these cards? 


Now, the great thing about this set of templates is that simply by choosing new cards or switching them around, you have a whole new template.  How cool is that?! Let me show you what I mean.  First create your blank page with your choice of size.  I’m using a 12x12 here.

Next just open the template in your scrapping program and copy all the layers by selecting first the bottom layer and while holding the SHIFT key, select the top layer.  Once you’ve grabbed all of them, simply drag them to your 12x12 layout.  Now here is a tip:  Go ahead and link the layers while they are all selected in the new document. This way if you have to move them around, you don’t accidently leave one of these pieces behind.  Also, don’t forget to go back to the original template and close it so you don’t accidently save over it. After placing the first set where you want it, just keep repeating this process.  See how I placed two 4x6 horizontal templates side by side?

Add as many as you like, and don’t worry if you line up the templates so that there isn’t any white spaces.  We will address this!  I ended up filling my entire page with four 4x6 templates and four 3x4 templates. You can stop here, but I like a little bit of white space between mine.  If you are going to add some spacing, you must first delete the text layers.  Then, simply select all the layers using the above mentioned method and once selected, drag the corner to make the entire group a tad smaller.  Here’s what I did:


Now you can move them around to give yourself some spacing.  Remember, each individual template has its own pieces linked together so you can grab just one part and move that individual template around.  Once you are happy, you will need to go and unlink the layers in case you start moving these smaller bits and pieces.  Here is what I ended up with:


I will save this template so that I have this for future use.  Remember, you can mix and match these journal card templates in a multitude of ways.  Think of how many templates you can make yourself – all with this one set of cards!!

This is my final layout using Liz’s Daily Life Journal Cards with Just Jaimee’s Go Outside & Storyteller 2018 August Collection:

I hope you can see how versatile these cards are and have fun making your layout.  Try it and see what you come up with.  That’s it for me until next month.  Stay safe!

And I was able to finish up one more page of my daughter's graduation album. Seeing as how her graduation party is on Sunday I'm definitely not going to get it printed in time, but my hope is to display the pages on the computer during her party.

GSO Time!


Happy July y’all.  CTM Robin here.  Do you realize that one half the year is done?  Usually I’d be sad by now since July means school is right around the corner.  But this year? I think we can all agree we want 2020 to be done and gone!! 

Where I live it’s super hot and sticky so I’m spending a good bit of time inside with the air conditioning running.  This gives me plenty of time to browse through the gallery and get some inspiration.  I usually save the layouts that catch my eye for those days that my mojo has left me and as usual, I found quite a bit of eye candy this month. I’m excited to show you!

First we have this one by sucali.  I love her paper choices and how she repeated the yellow in three different spots to keep the page balanced.  And isn’t the way she filled in one of the dots with her Summer tag ingenious?

 Next I wanted to show off Claire Grantham’s page.  This is such a fun layout!  I love her title work and the way she overlaps her frames while leaving the photos tucked behind the main, center photo.  This is such a vibrant page!

You know by now that I’m a sucker for QR codes.  It’s crazy to me that we can see video whenever we want without having to pull out a huge recorder or find the tape converter to hook to the TV (I know, I’m showing my age here!)  IntenseMagic has an amazing talent for incorporating them into her layouts in an eye catching way and this layout is no exception.  The white space really makes it easy to view the videos and makes her photos pop too.

With this virus going on in the world, a lot of us are having staycations and jesskab documents hers so well!  I love the shadowing of her title work and the way she taped her journaling card to the paper.  What a sweet page!

And last, but definitely not least, take a peek at AngelaToucan’s layout.  Her blending is fantastic and I love that she captured the action shots of the kids assembling their tent.  What a great way to take up some time on a long summer day and an even better way of preserving that moment.  I’m definitely scraplifting this page (and idea too!!)

Well that’s it for me this month.  I hope you love these GSO’s as much as I do.  Y’all stay safe, scrap plenty, and come back next month for another batch of goodies!
