I, always, have to take my time when writing. Since most of my stories are long, I almost always do the bulk of my journaling on the back of my layouts.
However, on the occasion when I believe that a layout requires more explanation than the title portrays, I often print something separately with a typed document. Frequently, I use my computer. But, another favorite tools is my pink Dymo.
I had one similar as a child and loved it. So, I picked up this one a number of years ago to add a little variety to my journal strips. I used it both this month and last month. You may see the ways that I used it below:

We are inviting the TSR members to show us how they use their kits with a fun hop this month. We suggest using 4 in 1's, the sketch of the month, a design gallery lift or to just find a way to show us your own style. What's a 4 in 1 you ask? Well, it's using at least one item from each of the 4 lines for the current month's kit. If you are international and haven't received this month's kit in time, feel free to use last month's kit.

Also, look for some new Singleshot Kits to be added to the TSR Store next week. Be sure to check back often for the best selection!
For TSR Members, if desired, I can hold any additional items and add them to your July shipment to save you on shipping charges (as long as it all fits into one priority box). However, we will process your credit card now for any additional items so that we can keep an accurate inventory and attempt to keep our site up to date.

Although, I dabbled with scrapbooking as a child, it really took me over when I was pregnant with my first child. I knew that I would enjoy creating albums for him. This was in the year 2000 when I began. It all started with a Creative Memories event.
I think that my style is eclectic. I almost always use cardstock on my pages because I like how it tones down busy papers and designs. I love to be frugal with my supplies, too. Sometimes, I challenge myself to get the most amount of projects done that I can on one kit. I find myself moving from using subtle graphic designs to clean or classic pages to heavily layered paper pages.
Another tough question. I love diversity and my favorite manufacturer changes based on trending lines. If I have to pick one, I'll go with My Mind's Eye. They usually have classic and pretty papers that draw my attention. I love the texture in their papers and many of their embellishments too.
Geesh, I'm not sure. I had been watching quite a few designers years ago that come to mind. Not as many currently, although I do love Brenda Ragsdale and Rochelle Spears work. :)Two of my past favorites are Julie Bonner with her clean pages and fabulous photographs, and Emma Trout with her meticulous fancy cutting and beautifully layered designs. I have yet been able to create a masterpiece close to the magnificence with all the cuts that Emma can create.
Not nearly as many as I used to. My feeder has more decorating and religious content than scrapbooking these days. Along with The ScrapRoom and its designers, I have a few manufacturer blogs, Scrapbook Challenges, The Counterfeit Kit Club, (which helps me use my ScrapRoom stash), and Moments to Cherish because Deanna and I have reacquainted since our days of MOD Squad at TSR.
