Welcome to the January BLOG HOP.
If you have arrived from Kim O'Rear's blog, you are hopping along the right path.
All of the artwork in this hop features CTMH's January Stamp of the Month, entitled "True Friends". It is a very versitile set of stamps that includes 4 friendship quotes, 3 brackets, and 4 frames that are great for cardmaking and scrapbooking journal spots.
On this blank journal, I have used the SOTM to frame my "ideas". I just LOVE these blank journals. They can be used for so many things. As you can see, this one is going to be a place to keep my ideas for upcoming workshops, cards and scrapbook pages. I need to order about 10 more journals, because I would like to have one for my favorite quotes, recipes, notes from my devotions and prayer list, a travel log, a sketch book, an address book, a brag book, guest book, the list could go on and on! Another fun feature about this journal is it has a clear pocket front, so you can change out the front as much as you like.
The tabs were made just by gluing 2 circles back to back with the page sandwiched inbetween.
On the inside back cover, I adhered an flip flap photo sleeve so I could store removable lists there.
All supplies used are from Close To My Heart:
My Creations Journal
Veranda paper pack
Antiqued Copper Mini Medley Accents Collection
Stamp sets: Jan SOTM, True Friends
State of Mind
Mini Double Pocket Card
This mini double pocket card starts out from a 5"x 6" piece of patterned paper.
The finished mini card measures 2 1/2" x 3".
Our 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 envelope flat is the perfect companion for this little gift card.
