Dream Journal


This project was also inspired by a video I saw on youtube. It is called One Sheet Wonder Mini Album.  You can see her tutorial here: Traci Cornelius.  Instead of a mini album I made mine into a Dream Journal for my daughter.  I thought she could write down her hopes, dreams and goals for the next year. I made the journal artistic to match her personality.
For the front cover I added a piece of Card Candy I received from our Swap you heart out 
Card Candy Swap a few months ago.

I added the creative quotes on the paper pack.
 I mixed up the a paper to give it a cheery feeling. There is a little pocket on the front of the middle section for me to write a special note on a tag. 
Inside each pocket is double sided journaling spot. 


I hope Sasha likes it!
Thanks for stopping by!

Prayer Journals

I was watching you tube and came across a wonderful teacher.  She did a tutorial on a multi purpose book. It could be used for so many different things.  I made mine into prayer journals.  For a great tutorial on how to make the base check out Elaine's video here: Paper craft Button
For my books I used paper that was not my favorite design.  I stamped Life is Fragile stamp and layered it onto card stock and attached to the belly band.  I added simple punched flowers to give it a little color and the inside of the good with the pick flower on top has pink pages inside.  They came together very fast and would make a great gift. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Masculine Card Portfolio

My son Justin wanted to send out a Thank you card to a friend. He said all of my cards were "too Girly" So I made him a little portfolio with 4 cards. I'm very proud he still sends thank you cards…..
 I did an easy pocket cover with a magnetic closure (I love magnets)  Because I was going for masculine I kept the outside from very plane. 
 I stated with a 6x6 card base (Michaels) and added layer of black and designer paper.  
I could not find a masculine Thank you card in my stash so I  used Word and printed off my computer. 
I Put a clip on the inside and added stamps so all he has to do is address and send. 
He has already used two and I'm a very proud mama. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Mini in a Box

I made this mini album in a box for a recent swap at Swap your heart Out.  I got the box from Michaels $1 bin and painted it black.  I covered with designer paper and added a magnetic closure. 

Inside the box on the first square I stamped one of my favorite sayings. 


The inside comes out and has places to add photos and journaling 


The back side of the pull out. 
Thanks for Stopping by!
