My second post of the day. . .I told you I was going to get some serious crafting in for my birthday! I made this for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I loved the sketch and just yesterday more of my Clear Dollar Stamps goodies came in the mail! Instead of making a card, I decided to cover this journal. I had never covered a journal that was not spiral bound before, but thought I would give it a try. As many of you know, Clear Dollar Stamps just recently started releasing their own line of papers with ribbons to match. This line is called Summer Fun, and matches perfectly with Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety dp. I've been wanting to make myself a food journal, to simply record what I eat from day to day. I think this will at least help me to make wiser choices if I actually see what I've eaten written down. The new line of paper isn't quite as heavy as normal cardstock, which makes it PERFECT for layering. I just love the result!
I'm sure you'll see a lot more very soon done with the new line of colors from CDS. They are so wonderful and vibrant! The set I used for this project is called Veggie Stew from CDS and is PERFECT for this paper!
