Journaling with Paper Scraps FREE DOWNLOAD

If you've watched my video "Journaling with Paper Scraps" then hopefully you'll have lots of ideas for ways to use up those cute-can't bear-to-throw-them-away scraps of papers from projects past.  But because I know it's sometimes nice to work alongside a video using the same colours, paints or papers, I've added this free download for you to use as many times as you want to print them.  If you do make something using them I'd love to see!  Add a photo to instagram with the hashtag #atticlane or add a comment below the video sharing what you did.  Enjoy x

I have loads of little boxes and cute jars and drawers full of "useful" bits and bobs which I've kept because one day I'm going to make them into something for my journals.  Well that day arrived and I thought I'd share with you. If you've watched the video linked to this giveaway you'll have seen several ways to use up your stash by creating cute junk journal ephemera. Feel free to download and print out these two sheets as many times as you need.  And if you've enjoyed the video please give it a thumbs up or leave me a comment to say how you got on!

Faux Specimen Slides - FREE Download

If, like me, you remember the craze for altering microscope glass slides - you might like this.  It's a much safer way to creating faux slides and you can use a laminator if you have one or these can also be made without.  I show you both techniques in my video on my You Tube channel.  The two free sheets have been designed to get you started with the bugs, butterflies and weird fairies (!) scaled to fit within the slide frames.  Once you've mastered these, you may like to doodle your own bugs or create slides with photos.  I can see my cute dog Buster being the subject of many of my own slides!

Enjoy :)

Journal Prompts - FREE Download

I hope these 30 prompts will inspire you to consider new ways you can use your journals.  It  gives you over 30 reasons to make yourself more journals too!  If you are making and giving a journal to a friend who may not be familiar with them, including this page of prompts will help them get started!  My videos detailing how I use my memory journals are all on my You Tube channel.

A journal can be used as a diary, as a planner or the way I use them most - as a memory journal.  Over the past 20+ years I have developed from scrapbooking through home made ring bound books to now, mostly single signature journals.  I never use my journals consecutively, I prefer to work to a theme so I tuck memories (photos, receipts, tickets) throughout my books.  When I return to a journal after a period of time, it's a lovely surprise to re-discover those little momentos in pockets or envelopes.
