Storyline Chapters | 3 Ways to Hide Journaling
No matter where we find ourselves at this point in time, there are always stories to be told. Maybe even more than ever before.
With the arrival of April, I am finding a new intention in focusing on the story. Today’s post not only does just that, but I want to share a couple of ways to add journaling in and around a story.
Storyline Chapters keeps unwrapping itself for me. I have fallen in love with this 7 x 9-inch page format. As this post HERE shares, I am getting my weekly stories on these pages grid style. But I am also saving room on the weekly spread for what I call THE story.
THE story here wraps up my pages for February. I wanted to add in how I spent the last few days of February in Palm Springs with girlfriends for some time in the warm sun, by the clear pool, with some great conversation.
Also on this page: several hidden spots of journaling.
The top photo was layered over Storyline Chapters Project Pad ledger paper. I just stapled the photo at the top to the ledger paper underneath. I added in the journaling right there. This is just one way to keep the photo + embellishments clean and clear. But it also provides a space to write the story.
Next: the top layer opens up to a card attached to the Insert page. Inside I added a binding flap and adhered an envelope from the Tags and Pockets to that inside page. Those envelopes come with little cute tags and die cuts to add inside. Instead, I trimmed out a journaling card from my stash, wrote the story on that card, and added it inside the envelope.
As I was layering the pattern paper to the Insert page, I created a space with the adhesive to act as a pocket. Using a small tag, I wrote more journaling, then tucked it inside that very back hidden pocket. Just another way to add more story, and tuck it away. Not only does this provide space for words, but it also adds a great additional layer to the page. Makes me happy.
Three ways to add journaling to a page. Three ways to hide it out of the way of all the pretty stuff. Three ways to help you tell your story.
