Win Love by Jen Whittemore
I loved everything about this mini kit, “Feel it All”! The colors and patterns made me instantly feel calm and creative! 3x8 albums seem to be becoming more and more popular…maybe the next Traveler’s Notebook?! It’s definitely a size that can be manageable. I’ve used it for random everyday layouts, as well as my December Daily for last and this year. I highly recommend it because you can insert two 3x8 spreads or 4 individual 3x4 cards.
I started off by stamping the Cobble Hill alphas on white cardstock. My dog’s name is Winston, hence the Win Luv. After cutting each letter out, I adhered them directly to my 3x8 cropped photo. These alphas are great because they can be left as-is, or I could have shaded the thin edges with a colored pencil or marker, OR I could have colored in the entire letter. Once the letters were attached, I stamped in white pigment ink the “Feel it All” stamp underneath. Pigment inks provide rich color, but stay wet for a while, so make sure to allow drying time.
Next I stamped “Self Care” and “Deal With It” at the top of my journal page. Only, I smeared the “Self Care” when I first stamped it…ugh. Not to stress, I just stamped it again on white cardstock, carefully cut around it, and laid it right on top of the smeared version, none the wiser.
How cool is that layered “mood” card?!? There’s a few ways you could add journaling to this. Hand written script or using a typewriter are a couple options. But if you wanted to print your journaling out, you could scan the card in to your computer and enter your journaling on the file in Photoshop. Printing it out could either be the scanned version with writing or you could feed your hard copy card through your printer, making sure to line up the writing perfectly.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my post! I hope this inspires you to give the 3x8 size a try if you haven’t already! And even if you decide it’s not for you, you could still cut the cards down to two 3x4 standard pocket page cards. They’re seriously the cutest.
