Get it in Writing: Your Handwriting

Do you think your own handwriting stinks? Do you know, I don’t like mine either, but I still hand write on my layouts.   I am no typical documentation scrapper. I prefer to capture moods like these pictures below show, but still it’s nice to have a few words why I captured this cute face.  I bet your kids would love to see your handwriting.  Let go of the little perfections in you and think about the preservation of memories.

I have made a little frame out of my title and my journaling, it goes neatly beside all the cute journaling cards from the Cottage Farms collection.

The journaling cards can be used for more than journaling, they also make excellent photo mats.  I have arranged four of them together to show the different faces of our 3 year old.

Above you can see that I have added a little frame from the Cottage Farms ephemera and a stickers on top to say even more about the particular picture.

Hope you get some ideas on how to mix your handwriting, stickers and ephemera to tell your photos’ story.

    I use my handwriting most of the time – it’s quick and easy. Love how you combined the journaling cards/frames. Adorable girl and layout.

    This layout is adorable! Love it!!!
    I don’t like my handwriting either (I’ve actually been told “it looks like boy handwriting” lol). But I feel the same as you and I journal a little on every layout. Great post! :)

    I love these photos, what filter or photo action did you use on them?

      Shawn – I have used Photoscape to edit the photos. First I lighten the pictures a little, add contrast. Then I chose sepia, and in the end I add a filter Filmeffect and then I choose Portra low or middle.
