When I think about designing a formatted page, I sometimes try to free hand it thinking, "this will look cute and hand drawn." Then, I view the finished product and it's nothing like what I'd hoped for. In fact, my layouts often remind me of Kindergarten drawings. Talk about nostalgia!
Then I surfed cyberspace and found this video by Nadia's Nook, which inspired me to... use a ruler.
At first, I used a larger ruler I "borrowed" from my son, but then switched to rulers with a little more functionality and FUN! This is one of our first stencil rulers and I still love it! It's small size lends to easy travel in notebooks as small as A6 size. Of course, I like to keep it in my laptop bag with my journal and gel pens. You know, because journaling!
Needless to say, it's been recently "borrowed" from me! LOL :)
Enjoy the video then leave us a comment!
