Today I am sharing something I have been working on over the past few days, my very first handcrafted Journal.
I have rather a lot of retired Designer Series Paper – I have a bit of a DSP addiction!! I love it all, and I do use it on my cards and other projects but invariably, there seems to be plenty left over.
So my Journal uses all retired Stampin’ Up!items other than some photocopy paper which I have combined with DSP for the pages, and the Muesli Bar box which was upcycled to form the cover of the Journal.
Each page is different, some are stamped, some have hand cut birds, most are sponged, spritzed and splattered. I had a lot of fun!!
And all the pages are properly bound into the cover.
I absolutely loved making this project and I can see a lot more of them happening in the future, incorporating some mixed media techniques as well .
I think I’ll start on the Jatz box tomorrow!!
Happy stamping, sponging, spritzing and splattering!!
As I am sure you can tell, I just love the Friendly Hello Sale-a-Bration stamp set (available 4th January 2022), I am also loving the Heart and Home Suite (also available 4th January from the new Mini Catalogue) – yes, there is a lot to look forward to with all the gorgeous new goodies coming soon.
I made this card during my regular Wednesday morning Facebook Live, I have to admit though, I was very tired and probably sounded it. However I think the card turned out ok. This is a style I love to make, I know it’s not everyone’s cup of tea but it is easy enough to adjust it to be less “fussy” and appeal to a wider range of people. The gorgeous flowers from the Friendly Hello set, have been stamped in Basic Gray and then coloured with Pale Papaya ink and Blender Pens. And that gorgeous Basic Gray doily is part of the Heart and Home suite. Did you know that you can watch most of my Facebook Lives on my YouTube channel?

I’m not sure about you, but I am looking forward to some holiday time and some down time to connect with some creativity and have a play with some new products and ideas. Happy stamping! Chris
