|Chatterbox is a company owned and operated by Melody Ross in
Star, Idaho. Melody's company has some innovative tools that can help make your
journaling and scrapbooking easier. We've found that journaling is a scary prospect
for many scrapbookers, even us at Crazy for Scrappin'. Chatterbox has designed some
products that can help alleviate those fears.
is the creator of the popular Journaling Genies. Journaling Genies are fun templates
that can help make your journaling look great with minimal work. They are made of
durable heavy-duty material that held up well to our abuse when we tested them. The
Journaling Genies have holes punched along 1 edge for easy storage in a binder.
Currently, Chatterbox has 10
different Journaling Genie templates with themes such as: Basic, Birthday, Funky, Baby,
Christmas and Weddings. Each template has 4 or 5 patterns to trace, not to mention a
border around the stencil that you can use to draw patterned borders on your pages.
When we used the Journaling Genies we simply traced the lines lightly with a sharp
pencil, removed the stencil and added our journaling. When you're done erase the
lines and voila! You have easy and creative journaling on your page. We found
that it works best if you use permanent ink for your journaling so it won't smear when you
erase your lines. For extra emphasis, you can mount your journaling on an outline of the
shape you used on the stencil .
