I have a couple of projects to share with you today. The first project is a gratitude journal. I truly believe that being grateful for the people, experiences, and things in your life is incredibly important. Every day I write down three things that I am grateful for. Even on those bad days I can always find three things!
For Die-namics I used a combination of new release items and a few favorites from previous releases.
I love this sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental about New Beginnings stamp set. It was just perfect for the front of my journal. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of X-Press It card stock. I used the Oval STAX 1 and the Oval STAX 2 Die-namics, and Wild Cherry and Berrylicious card stock for the ovals.
The new Heart Doily Die-namics and the largest heart from the Heart STAX Die-namics layered perfectly together. I added a Leaf Filled Flourish on top of the heart, partially tucked under the flowers.
The flowers needed to be relatively flat as this is a journal that I plan on writing in. I used the Botanical Beauty Die-namics to create the flowers. This has always been one of my favorite flower Die-namics. The patterned paper is from the Carta Bella Devoted collection.
Along the bottom edge of the journal, I used the Layered Heart Border Die-namics. I am really loving this set of dies! The numbers were created with the By the Numbers Die-namics.
My next project features the new Ticket Book Die-namics, the Coupon Book - Love stamp set, the Homespun Hearts stamp set and the Hearts and Stitches stamp set.
Here is a quick look at all the pages that I created for the book. The book was created with Natural card stock. I sponged the edges of all the card stock with Latte Adirondack ink. The pages were ties together with some Hemp Cord and two Wild Cherry buttons.
I used Kraft Premium Dye Ink, Wild Cherry Premium Dye Ink, and Memento Tuxedo Black ink for all the stamping. In addition to the Coupon Book - Love stamp set, I used a few elements from the Homespun Hearts and the Hearts and Stitches background stamp sets.
Wouldn't this be a fun treat for someone special?
I look forward to seeing you all for the New Product Tour!
