Today I'm excited to share some fun ways for you to put Digital Journal Cards to use in your papercrafting.
If your a project-lifer you may already be utilizing digital journal cards in your process. They offer an especially affordable solution for cards that you might use over and over each week in your spreads.
But for those of you who are less familiar with digital journal cards, they are often bundled together in sets that include a variety of styles and a few different file formats which typically include jpgs and/or pngs and pdf printable sheets. Common sizes for digital journal cards are 3 x 4" and 4 x 6."
