February Studio AE From Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Technique Tuesday Studio AE February Blog Hop!

Today we are featuring the current kit, Favorite Story.


I just love the old school label style used for these journaling prompts.

I made this little box out of a 4" x 6" office supply index card holder.  I thought it would be a good way to sort photos in a storytelling vs events style.


Here is a close up of the tabs


Here is how I made them


I just stamped 2 top to top, then scored down the middle, cut them out, and creased at the score mark.


I attached them to some grey cardstock and put in some 3" x 5" graph lined index cards for note taking, sketches, whatever.


Then I just have to start adding the photos and get the journaling ideas cooking!

Here are the rest of the stops on the hop:

Ali Edwards

Julie Campbell (our special guest!)

Daniela Dobson

Nichol Magouirk

Sharyn Tormanen

Teri Anderson

Jaime Warren
