Get It Scrapped is giving away one spot in Pattie Knox's "More Mad Digital Skillz" online workshop.

Pattie Knox’s favorite part of digital scrapbooking is learning new techniques for creating realistic--as in “I can’t believe that’s not paper!”--layouts. In “More Mad Digital Skillz,” you’ll learn how to create torn edges on your photos and papers, how to insert photos into type, Pattie’s method for digital dry embossing, and much more about making your own brushes, working with custom shapes, and creating depth and interest with texture. Each lesson is accompanied by beautiful digital products from the talented artists at Designer Digitals—including Ali Edwards! Class starts May 25th at Get It Scrapped!

    I journal "best" when I have written down the thought before-hand, even "at the moment", and saved it for the page I want to make.

    I just start writing on a scrap piece of paper until I get all my thoughts out, then edit it. It seems when I write directly on my scrapbook page - I mess it up and it becomes short choppy sentences.

    It's easy for me to just write the "who, what, when, were, why", but I want to tell the story. When the story isn't abvious and sometimes when it is, I just close my eyes and feel the emotion that the picture or event brings up and then write about that. It's so much more personal.

    Ideally I would sit down daily and actually journal, but that doesn't always work. So, it is easiest for me to jot down a few events/fun things/thoughts on my calendar every day as to what happened - helps jog the memory later when I go to scrapbook.

    I try to write down my thoughts right away after an event or moment. Then even if I don't scrapbook the page for months (not unusual!) I still have fresh thoughts and I don't have to try and remember what I was thinking or feeling.

    I write the most honest journaling when I know I have made a little pocket or envelope to put it in on the page.

    My best journaling tip is to either write it down right after it happened or do it as soon as you scrap the page... don't put it off until later because the memories aren't as fresh!

    I think just completing the page soon rather than waiting until the memories fade.

    Carry a little journal with you, then you can jot down thoughts, funny things the kids say, title ideas, and such as they come to you, no matter where you are.

    I too, take a journal and use it to jot down thoughts as they occur, rather than waiting until I am scrapping the event.

    I like to keep some journaling private and so I will use envelopes on my page to store journaling. Sometimes I will have the picture flip-up with the journaling underneath the picture.

    Honestly, right now when I have a story I want to remember, I try and post on my blog. I also like to keep a notebook of all the little things my 4 and 6 year old say. I wish I could say I was good at remembering to write it all down, but I could do better for sure!!

    Writing down as it happens is the best..napkins, receipts, anything I can write on in the moment and stash in my purse!

    Be honest in your journaling and don't just journal about the awesome things, it's okay to journal about not such great times also. You can hide the journaling if you want to keep it private but just make sure you document it, don't not journal because you don't want everyone to know. You'll forget over time and you don't want to lose those memories.

    Try to write down what happens right away, store it in my scrapbook bin and then just tweek when doing the layout.

    These are all great ideas! I usually just free write on scratch paper and then go through it and fix all the mistakes.

    Write down things you want to remember ASAP! I use a blog to do this for my son. It helps me get the details down, and then if I want to expand upon the story in a less public way, I do so in a scrapbook.

    Don't leave it! Do it! I can't tell you how many pages I've "finished" but left the journaling to do and never gotten around to... Keep a journal and jot down feelings, events and you'll always have something to add to your page.

    I keep a little journal that I write in each night. It helps me to journal later and I am also able to look at the journaling as a whole. I also have a small notebook I keep in my purse for joting down the cute phrases and occurences when I am on the go.

    Index cards are a life saver for me.....I keep them everywhere and just jot down the ideas for the moment and file it away in a box under the appropriate divider. Then when I'm ready to scrap...I can pull the card and use it on the page or pull of the sentiment and elaborate further if necessary.
