So.... a couple of weeks ago I participated in TWO days of classes, with many awesome instructors, all online. Throughout True Scrap 5, and since then, I have been inspired to try a zillion new things, but cursed with little time to implement. However, I do have some fun to share today! One of the classes was taught by Heidi Swapp. She made an awesome journal with scrapbook papers, a composition notebook, and her Cinch machine. I loved it, so I tried it (did I mention that I bought a Cinch right after True Scrap 5?)!
I haven't decided how I'm going to "close" this. I may do what Heidi did and add an embellishment on the front that the flap can go behind. Or I might just use some ribbon. I'll have to think on that for a bit before I commit. ;-)
I used a paper pad by Amy Tangerine for just about everything (the cover, inside pages, etc.). I think that made it a bit easier because everything works together quite nicely! The only other thing I added was a journal that I got from Michael's a while back. I knew I'd use it someday (I think it was just a buck)! I'm not going to bother you with every page, but here are a few!
|I made a couple of "pockets" and made tags to go inside the pockets.|
|Notice that paper on the left...it comes up later!|
|The front of the journal I purchased at Michael's|
|....and the inside of that journal|
|You guessed it, the back of the journal!|
|I added a few pocket protectors throughout the book|
|I used gelatos on the right page to create an ombre effect (it started B&W, see above)!|
I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do with it. It will likely be a journal of some sort, with photos...so maybe a mini book? I dunno. I'm sure I'll add a few little details as I work with it. Thanks for stopping by!
