End of Journal Camp

I want to thank everyone who has left comments or sent emails and taken part in Journal Camp! I also want to thank my sponsors one more time for the great prizes and support they’ve given over the past 5 weeks!

Since the beginning of May I have posted a new tutorial abut journaling and brought those tutorials gradually from the most simple types of helper journaling to a full page of journaling. I’ve looked at every layout, commenting where I could. It really felt good for me to watch everyone’s journaling evolve!

I hope you enjoyed Journal Camp as much as I enjoyed doing it. I also hope you’ve become a bit more comfortable with journaling, or learned some new skills, got some new ideas, to add to your journaling. As with anything creative, the key to continuing to get better at it is practice! Journaling is such an important part of scrapping your memories. A simple photo tells a thousand words, but only you can point out which hundred of those words are the correct ones!

Everyone who has completed the exercise for all 5 weeks will get the bonus bundle from Digitalegacies Designs with the top three sellers from my former store at Scrap Bird! If you did some of the exercises, you can still finish up the missing ones and earn the bonus through the end of June. In fact, if this is your first visit to The Chronicles of Nani, you can go back through Journal Camp and do all 5 exercises by the end of June and get the bonus bundle! As with all Chronicles of Nani freebies, the Journal Camp freebies will remain available for downloading from the blog for a year. After a year, you’ll need to email me to ask for them, but they have to be officially expired to make room for new ones at 4Shared!

I want to announce the final winners in the random drawings for sponsor prizes!

Congratulations to this week’s winners and to all of you who completed Journal Camp or found any nuggets of inspiration to make your journaling, and thus your memory pages, even better!
