Family Journal ~ Just Journaling

Hi guys! Well, its another Thursday, 1 day closer to Friday! YAY! Well, anyway- I did a few altered notebooks for this week, so I'm gonna put the recipe's for both of them.

A little about the altered notebooks: These can be used to put pictures, or explaining events or memories you want to keep. Kinda like a Scrapbook, but without doing a lot of decorated pages. So, kinda like a smashbook. I use mine to write songs and stories and what not. Just wanted to explain if you weren't sure :)

1st Altered Notebook: Family Journal 2012
So, I made this one for when I go to California at the end of this month for CHA (and Disney... and an Allstar Weekend concert!!!) So, I'm pretty excited! It was really fun to make this one.

  • Composition Book
  • Some Purple Gingham paper
  • Plain light purple paper
  • A Jillian Vance Design "Totally Titles" Stamp set (for the Family Journal part)
  • A Jillian Vance Design "Typestar" Stamp set (for the 2012)
  • white buttons
  • Purple Plum Divine Twine
  • purple ribbon
  • Spellbinders Die
  • White Cardstock
  • Ranger Archival Ink:  Deep Purple
It was so much fun to make these! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. 

2nd Altered Notebook: Just Journaling 
This one is just kind of a random one. I love it though!
  • Composition Book
  • Some fun groovy paper from our stash
  • Brown cardstock
  • Brown with green stitch ribbon
  • some cute paper punches
  • A Jillian Vance Design "Totally Titles" stamp set (for the Just Journaling sentiment)
  • Spellbinders Dies (My exclusive Emerald Cut DIEmond die!) 
  • Ranger Archival Ink in: Coffee
I hope you enjoyed these projects! Keep checking back every week, cause next week is the Valentine's Grunge blog hope! From January 16-21st, my design team and I are going to post a Grunge Valentine's project, and you can too! More information coming soon! But you will be able to link up with your project! (OH, and there WILL be blog candy ;)

I bought the 2nd altered Note book, Just Journal, at a benefit auction last night. I love it! I haven't Journaled in a very long time and have started again...I am so pleased to have this lovely Journal to write my thoughts, hopes and plans in. Thank you for donating such a lovely item to the auction.
