Using My Journal...1st 3 pages

Time to use that journal!
Some of us love making journals, but we don't use them.  They sit on the shelf and collect dust; we forget about them until we look back over projects we've made.  Hmmm.....  That made me ponder why I would want to inspire someone to make something they wouldn't, couldn't or might not know how to use.

So, this whole concept prompted me to shoot some video(s) while working in my book!  I'm using  Polkadoodles Li'l Miss Sugarpops journaling bits with Horace and Boo, Work & Play Collections, and many others.  (For a full list, see the Material List below.)

Grab your favorite beverage and snack and join me for some ideas on using all the fun journaling pieces, ephemera, and embellishments in a journal!  

I hope this has sparked your imagination on how to use your book and make it your own.  If you have ideas you want to share, leave them in the comments on one of my videos.  I'm sure others would enjoy seeing them.  If there is something you'd like to see me add to my book, let me know!  I'm always looking for new ideas!
