change is good with the Chomas Creations adjustable marker holder


For almost 7 years I've been on a journey, a journey to make me stronger, to help me feel better, and to get me in better shape.  It wasn't easy.  It was down right hard some days, but I've kept at it.  Almost 7 years I set a goal weight for myself.  I never seem to get there, until I went gluten free.  That was really hard, I won't lie.  I've also added essential oils in my life to help with maintaining my weight, getting clearer skin, and for pain relief.
So I decided to do something I rarely do.  A scrapbook page about me and my journey.  And with pictures of me, something else I rarely do.  You can read the journaling below if you like!  It is long, I kid you not!  So being able to write right on my 12x12 scrapbook page came in handy for this!  I used the Chomas Creations adjustable marker  holder with a Sharpie no bleed marker (acid free for you scrapbookers!) in the Silhouette to write this.  The font is Aunt Jana sketch from the Studio store.  Notice I didn't use a mat for this page, I put the 12x12 cardstock right in the Silhouette Cameo.  You do need to move the white rollers on the machine over to the next set of notches, and you need to use load media instead of load mat so that it will write in the right place.
The title was a download from the Studio store. 
Here is my finished page, with me on it! 
The journey isn't over!  There is always something to learn, something new to try.  I love the way I feel, having more energy, feeling accomplished!  I love sharing all I am learning about health and essential oils!  If you would like to read the journaling on my page, feel free!

I love using the pen holder for scrapbook journaling. It's better than my own handwriting, and much easier to backspace than to tear up a journaling box when I make a mistake.

I can use fancy fonts if I want, and sometimes I fill in larger font sizes with a different color for a nice effect. I do this a lot with when making cards.

Congratulations on making your goal. It's such hard work. You look great!

Will the pen holder work in the Silhouette Portrait? I actually won a Portrait over the holidays and am learning to use it. Thanks.
