I'm a bit of both. Some pages I know need a story, some pics speak for themselves. I try to do a little journaling on every page though, but sometimes the picture is worth a thousand words :)

Lorraine said...

I like to journal as if I'm not there and I want to tell the person looking at the page what's going on in the pics, or what I was doing or what I feel when I look at them. A narrator's point of view.

It really depends on what I'm scrapping. I tend to hide my journaling a lot, but with wonderful stamps like you are coming out with I can see myself doing more on the page journaling!!!

I hardly ever journal....I just let the picture tell the tale.

Amanda Muirhead said...

yummy new stuff! :)

Tanya said...

I journal a lot. Almost all of my lo's have at least some journaling on them. I find that if I don't, then I look back through my albums and wish that I had, so I try to do it before I put my lo's in an album.

Theresa D. said...

i am definitely a journaller although some pages only have little snippets and other pages tell larger stories. i try to journal on every page - and i try to journal in my own hand as often as possible

Jodi said...

I do a little of both!

Jacqueline said...

A little of both I'll guess.
I'm still learning the journaling part, it really was one of my scrapbooking weaknesses!!

Meda said...

I am not very good with words. I even think in images so my only journaling is the essential: who, when, where.

Melissa said...

Sometimes my layouts are more about the story and the photos are secondary. Othertimes, I like the photo to tell the story and the journaling is minimal. So, I like a mix of both.

Lizzy Simpson said...

I am definitely a journaller! I like to record all of the details to read over later. That's not to say that some layouts don't need journalling, but most of my "event" pages have lots of journalling.

silvia said...

I am not much of a journaller. I REALLY ,REALLY need to try harder to journal on my pages. That was my intention when I started scrapping.. to leave a story with the pictures. The stamps are great and the rub-ons are GORGEOUS!!!

Lauri {Scrap Attack} said...

Oh, those are gorgeous! I wish I was a better journaler, but I tend to let the pictures tell the story.

Parker and Emma's Mom said...

I will admit it I'm not the best at journaling. I think it's because I hate my handwriting and I'm too lazy to use the computer.

Delia W said...

I'm really trying to add more journalling (I should add meaningful) in my LO's lately, but must admit till now I've let the photos tell the story.

Joli said...

I am not the best at journaling, but I am trying to get better. The biggest reason I don't journal much is because I have sloppy handwritting.

karlynn said...

I am a TOTAL journaler...to me this is what matters the most...AWESOME PRODUCTS!!!

CJandErik said...

I journal, for sure. Without words they maybe just pictures some day. I call it my Alzheimer's recovery plan.

ThayerZoo said...

Both...Sometimes I let the pictures speak the words of my heart or express the emotions...while other times it flows out in words. I think for me sometimes it is expressing those feelings just in creating....

Lisa said...

Gorgeous! I'm just about to start an art journal so stamps like these would be ideal!

Cottagerca said...

I like the pics to say it all, with a very meaning full title.

threelittlethings said...

Both! It completely depends on what I want to do with the LO. Sometimes I tell the whole story, sometimes I just have a picture and a title. :)

AHadley said...

It just depends on the LO and the photos I guess. Some photos don't need an explanation, and some do. I just go by how the LO seems to develop and decide what I need to add.

Susan Stringfellow said...

BEAUTIFUL!!! Thanks for the peek

You know I really do both but I am finding that I journal more and more since its ok to have bad handwriting on a layout now. LOL!

Charisma3103 said...

I am so loving the butterflies I do journal the odd time not always though.

Jodee said...

I do a lot of journaling. Otherwise I know I will forget everything! LOL! Loving all your new stuff! Butterfly rub-ons! Gorgeous!

Debby said...

up until this month i haven't journaled much on my pages. since i started "all about you in 52" I journal like crazy and it is very addicative too.

Jana Eubank said...

Yes, I'm definitely a journaler. A page doesn't feel complete to me unless it has journaling . . . even if it is just a few sentences. :D

Dayna said...

I didn't used to journal much at all, but after having scrapped for a few years, I'm now looking back and wishing I had included more info on the pics as I'm already forgetting how old the boys were or where we were or why I loved the pic...So now I make a point to include at least the basic info on each layout.

butterfly843 said...

I do a mix of both. But lately I have really been trying to journal more often.

Valerie G said...

I do both. It just depends on what I'm doing. I do more when I'm putting together an album for someone else who might not know the story.

ScrapNSister1 said...

I normally let alot of my pictures do the talking temporarily. I'm still a little intimidated by journaling, whether to hide or not, etc; but I plan to look at my layouts and write what they inspire.

Jody said...

I used to be "all about the photo", but recently I got into the journaling side and I love my pages so much more now :)

Margo said...

Journalling is the hardest part of scrapbooking for me , but I am definitely getting better!!!
I love journalling stamps because they give me a set space that I "have" to fill!!!

liannallama said...

I do some of each depending on my mood or the photo. I do like to do LO's with one photo and a long story.

TraceyT said...

I do a bit of both, but try to journal on most every page.

Amanda said...

I have to journal -- telling the story is what it is all about, right?

~Debby~ said...

Journal is the heart and soul of scrapbooking.
Even though a picture can say a thousand words. No one knows what you are thinking unless you speak it, or write it down.
That way it is forever said and forever read. :)

Jacqui said...

I do a bit of both. Totally depands on the Photos and the LO.
