For the Love of a Journal Strip!

"O DYMO, DYMO! wherefore art thou DYMO? Deny thy..." Oh...hey there! Just whispering a few sweet nothings in the ear of my most favorite scrappy tool. Yep, you guessed it...the DYMO! It's Thurday's Thoughts and I have a few "thoughts" to share about my secret love affair. I fell head over heals for this fabulous tool over a year ago and since then we have been click, click, clicking away ever since. When I can not find the perfect journaling spot, just don't feel like writing, or my layout calls for a very clean journaling strip with no fuss, I always reach for my DYMO. I actually use the embosser DYMO and he looks a little something like this...


Back off ladies...he is all mine, but you can pick yourself up one at any local office supply store. For the longest time I could only find the labels in black, but these days you can find an assortment of colors...red, green, yellow, orange, etc. Here is a couple of ways I used the DYMO when I was the Guest Designer in June.

One of my most favorite things about the strips, is that once you make the strips you can simply cut the strips to make them fit in any spot on your layout. I have also cut the strips to contain one word in each strip. This method makes the length of the strips grow, which can fill a bare space on your layout...love it!

But if you can't get to your local office supply store quick enough, you can never go wrong with a regular paper journaling strip. It adds the same effect as the DYMO, but more personal.

Hope you ladies are enjoying all of the changes and fun here at Mosh Posh...isn't the blog great? Stay tuned...the Design Team Reveal is coming soon! I'm off to explain my weird love affair of scrappy goodies to my hubby.

In my old neighborhood, my scrappy neighbor would cut strips of cardstock to fit in her dymo. This was many years ago before all the colors were available. It is a great idea if you can't find the right color. She just took sand paper to the top afterwards to make her words pop.

You stole my boyfriend....you know that, right? I've been loving me some Dymo a looooong time, but I don't have that new fancy schmancy kind. I think I need that one! Love all your fab examples!

I totally adore my Dymo label maker. I have the older one though. I think he would get jealous is I bought the new updated one. LOL

I've always wanted to get one of these. I for some reason have a memory as a kid having one. It was probably my moms from work or something but I always remember playing with it. I love journaling strips so this is one of those must haves for the future!
