Using Stickers to Prompt Journaling With Heidi Swapp Care Free Collection
how to use stickers to prompt a story
The Heidi Swapp Care Free Collection continues to inspire the making. And I’m here for it. Today’s layout is brought to you by stickers. And how to use a sticker as a prompt. A journaling prompt.
This phrase though. Am I right? How is it that time just moves so swiftly? It amazes me all the time. You plan an event. You look forward to the event. Then before you know it, you are on the other side of the event. Just like that.
That was my response to this sticker. Please stand still! Because I am not keeping up very well. Can you feel my pain?
So what do I do? I scrapbook book the sentiment. I take the photo. I tell the story. Then paper. And stickers and stamps and all the things I love so much. They all work together to tell a story. That’s how I slow it all down for a bit. By telling the story.
For this story this time I went a little farther. I decided I was going to use the sentiment on the sticker as my journaling prompt. I think we paper crafting story tellers think we have to write just about the story that is exactly on the page. And that is a great idea. I’m here for it after all. I do that all the time. But this time was a little different. I decided to let the sticker lead the writing. I decided to just start there and see what happened. I decided to get more of my words and thoughts on paper (always the goal) and this was the sticker that was going to start it.
Now it’s your turn. Have fun with this idea. Use a sticker or a tag or a stamp and let that be your journal prompt. Don’t worry if the ‘story’ does not match the photo exactly. Who wrote that rule any way? Just let it prompt an idea. Then write. Write down the story. You will never regret taking the photo. You will never regret telling the story.
