WCS | Using your 5 senses for journaling

Hi!  When we sign up to blog on the WCS blog we get to choose from the different topics; write, click and scrapbook. I usally sign up for the two last, but this time I thought I´d challenge myself and take on a write post. You see, journaling is one of my weaknesses in memorykeeping. I love seeing all the layouts and PL spreads with lots of words and stories on them, but I am not good at it at all. In the recent months I have been attending a mindfulness class. I deal with anxiety quite a lot and the pratice of being here and now can really help with that. For my post today I did just that, I sat down in my back garden and was mindul of my surroundings and I had a little help from my five senses: sound, sight, taste, touch and scent. I made my layout based on that.
I have a 6x8" personal album and opted to make a pocket page for it. I choose one of the multiple pocket page protectors from Simple Stories that I had on hand and it fit my journaling perfectly since I divided it up for…

WCS | June gallery

The June gallery went live on the first and it´s filled with projects that are inspired by anything we have posted to the WCS blog this past year. 

There were so many fun projects for me to choose from for this month´s theme! Here I chose Amy Coose's lovely layout. I love the diagonal design--it's so easy on the eyes isn't it? I like the colors I used too, so fresh looking.

I also added a watercolor card I'd made that also hold a few words on how we celebrated Easter.

For week 15 I used picmonkey.com to make some simple cards with photos and journaling. I like to change things up a little from time to time. 

Week 16 was all about family. We had great dinners together, my daughter became a big sister again when her little brother was born and the weekend was spend celebrating my mom's birthday. 

The spread for week 17 holds a lot of stories. I added journaling to both pockets and that big pocket I made by sewing two photos together and putting journaling cards in there. 

I love all the nature photos here!

Lots of photos for week 18! I added photos from our move to the entire second page. 

And I have a new record in the amount of inserts in one spread; …
