I’m sitting here at my scrap desk with a crafting crystal ball in front of me. You know what it says? It says card blanks are in the cards for scrapbookers!
Card blanks, traditionally used to make handmade greetings, make excellent journaling spots, whether you want to incorporate hidden journaling or simply want ample space to tell your story.
With this in mind, I used the brand new card-blank cuties from Doodlebug Design to house the journaling on this colorful layout.

Containing your story within a card also adds an interesting interactive element to the page, as the card opens to reveal the story. And the area on the card front is yet another area where you can contain page embellishments, photos, or your page title!
Don’t stop at the card-blank approach to journaling. Use coordinating scraps from your stash to create a handmade greeting. It’s sure to brighten someone’s day!
