I used my Cricut with the Jubilee cartridge to cut the title letters from the Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper (DSP). I kept it simple and unfussy, since I am not a very fancy person. I think I will add some coordinating ribbon to the coil when I am done, but for now I left it bare so I can fold the cover back easily.
I'm using all the products in the Epic Day This and That line (DSP, Designer Stickers, rotary stamp and washi tape) as well as a few other items (glue stick, snips and Basic Black ink spot). For the journaling I have a set of fine-point markers I bought at a local art store -- I like to write with about as fine a point as I can find. I have everything except the DSP gathered together in a little bag that's easy to take with me if I want to journal on the go.
For the most part these pages are grouped together near the beginning of my journal, but I also let myself skip pages if, for instance, I didn't like the way the background paper looked with the photos I was using. There's not really any rhyme or reason to the order of things. Once I got my first page started (the Festival of Nations page above), everything just started coming fast and furious. It was pretty awesome to not worry about things being perfect, which I usually do when I make a scrapbook.
