I've been busy making some journals and notebooks for my church bookshop this week and I decided to use the Colour Q combo to make a man's journal.
I used a new set from the Summer Mini catty called Up, Up and Away to create this:
I found a pack of 10 plain notebooks at a bargain store recently and have been having fun covering them - this is my first attempt at a guy's one! I used a bit of Spice Cake dsp which was in the Spring mini catty (all gone now though...) to cover the spine, then I covered the front and back with Early Espresso card with some punched circles randomly adhered for a bit of interest.The image panel was stamped with the balloon images and the clouds then I drew a frame around the edge with an Early Espresso marker. The 'take note' oval is from Notably Ornate and I added a brad/punched circle and some baker's twine for a closure.
Here's the recipe:
Stamps:Up, Up and Away, Notably Ornate
Ink: Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Early Espresso, Pool Party
Paper: Spice Cake dsp, So Saffron, Early Espresso, Pool Party, Whisper White, EE textured
Tools: Circle punches, oval punch, corner punch
Accessories: Pool Party brad, white baker's twine, Early Espresso marker
Thanks for stopping by!
