To Art Block, or Not to Art Block…that is the question.

As much as I love to journal in my Fauxbonichi, I may need to change up my layout.
As you can see, I either need a bigger "Art Block", or don't have one at all.
So what I think I may do is add the Art block as I do each day instead of at the beginning of the month. This way I can make it whichever size I need.
If I have a lot to write about, then the art blocks are perfect.
But if I don't have a lot to write, I would rather use a big stamp, like these, to take up more room on my page.

These stamps are from Unity Stamps and the sentiments that come with them, are geared towards Friends..
But when I look at these stamps they make me think of sisters.
The one with the 3 girls remind me of my 3 daughters and the one on the right reminds me of my sister and I.
Either way I adore these stamps.
Now to colour them up and write about my day :)

I hope you all had a very Creative Tuesday :)

  1. Great use of the stamps, love both of them. I'm looking forward to your finished pages. I created cookies today so nothing paper related. Now to not make them a meal.

  2. Good idea to add a little flexibility to your pages, Tracy!

  3. Creativity is always a work in process, isn't it? :) I'm glad you've figured out ways for this to work for you.

  4. That's a good idea because you never know what the day will hold! I like those stamps too :)

  5. Love the use of stamps to fill in those larger areas, they add a nice element.

  6. Your two stamps go so sweetly together! Love your post title. :)

  7. I love, love those stamps!! I bet they look amazing when you color them!! Have a great day :)

  8. Can't wait to see how you colour the stamped images :)

  9. Such beautiful stamps! Look forward to seeing them coloured up!

  10. Very cute stamps and so appropriate for you! I can see why you like them.

  11. I like the look of pre-set blocks in people's journal photos but I find they are too constrictive for myself. I like a totally blank page before me each day so I can do whatever I want but I journal sort of smashbooky...pasting in small pictures, clippings, printouts, stickers, whatever is handy that day, etc and write a little or a lot depending. I love your pages though, they are always so pretty. I'd like to stamp more in my journal.


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
