Journaling Prompts | Golden Hour

Journaling is a great way to capture the details that make up your everyday life. Whether you're telling in-depth stories or simply captioning a photo, your words are important to preserving your memories for years to come. The following journaling prompts are perfect for pairing with this month's "Golden Hour" Kit, or just tuck them into your back pocket for a time when your creative mojo is low. Either way, we hope they’ll help inspire your next project!


The "Currently" prompt is one you've probably seen before or possibly tried out yourself. The embellishments in this month's "Golden Hour" Kit, as well as the Around Here add-on stamp set, spurred our Creative Team to take this prompt in new directions this month! Check out all the inspiring way they recorded their "currently"s below!  

Maggie wrote about what she's currently reading on her spread, Reading...July 2018. We love her grid of book covers!

On Sarah's Right Now TN Page, she's noted some quick thoughts about a book she's currently reading. Remember, you don't need lengthy journaling to capture the memory!

We love Lisa's Currently spread in her notebook featuring a quick snapshot of what she's currently listening to, watching, reading, drinking, eating, and making! This type of project would be great to do every few months or yearly.

Barbara captured what her daughter is currently watching, listening to, and loving in one short title—Harry Styles. The vertical photo over her cluster of sweet embellishments on the right page says it all. 

Haley used the Around Here stamp to create a fun list of her favorites for her notebook spread, Currently. We love the result!

What you're currently working on is a great prompt for a notebook spread. France captured her summer deadlines in a fun way on her spread, Currently


Every season has its own fun activities—and summer is no exception. Whether it's a family tradition, a new adventure, or plans that took a different turn, the current season is always a good prompt to journal about! Check out all the inspiring ways the Creative Team wrote about their summers below! 

Candace's family has a tradition of taking summer swim lessons, which prompted the journaling for her spread, Magic Is All Around Us. We love how she used this everyday activity as a chance to journal about memories she'll never want to forget! 

On her spread, Everyday MagicFrance wrote about one of her favorite summer activities, gardening. Recording your simple pleasures is a great way to capture a season. 

Heba's journaling on her spread, BBQ, shares that she anxiously awaits her summer BBQ each year. We love the "right now" banner at the top of her page drawing the viewer's eye down to the journaling and then the photo.

On her project, Everyday MagicPam took the opportunity to record a summer activity that only happens for two weeks every three years! From the big events to the simple details, recording your summer is always a great idea. 

Lisa recorded a simple summer moment on her spread, Summer Notebook. A sweet photo and a simple line of journaling were all she needed to capture this memory. 

There's so much you can say with the "Golden Hour" Kits and August add-ons. Which journaling prompt do you plan on trying out this month? Post your creations in the gallery and add a link in the comments. We can't wait to see what you'll make!
