Does anyone here make their own 3" x 4" journaling cards?

I have both InDesign and MS Publisher (as well as PS) and would like to try my hand at it.

Do you buy clip art to go on it, or design your own/scan your own images?

Looking to share ideas!

I just started making my own and have mainly done shapes and words in fun fonts. If you Google "fonts for peas" you will see Kevin and Amanda's site with tons of free handwriting fonts. Funnily I was visiting there long before I started visiting here! You can get Ali Edwards' for free as well.
Aside from that I have used hearts, circles and speech bubbles that come standard with PSE, I have hand drawn a few things (I can't draw) and I am considering buying a digital elements pack to add.
I have also done a few with just pale lines and decorated with stamps or washi tape. Eventually I will take pics and post them! XD

I forgot: You can get free fonts at www.dafont.com. There are all kinds, including handwriting.

I've used some dingbat fonts to add shapes and stuff.

There are also some build your own kits here at Two Peas like this one that I have used too. There's lots of options!

I do sometimes but mostly just print what others offer out there for freebies...

I use album cards by a couple of different people (and print them at home): Ali Edwards, Cathy Z., Karla Dudley. I also create my own by using digital kits and combining elements (brushes, papers, stickers, etc.). They are fun to make!

Like craftymom101, I often make my own in PS using digi kits and brushes.
