Do you all remember the Faux stitched flower card I made. If not, then check it out here. Well that was a card to be sent to my swap partner in the Handmade Journal Swap over on the Cricut Message Board. I thought that I would also share with you the journal that I had made, but I was waiting for her to receive it. Now that she has, here it is. This was a composition book that I had picked up quite awhile ago when they were on sale for a quarter a piece(must have been back to school time). The scalloped border was made on my Gypsy and the flower is from Sweet Treats cricut cartridge.
This is a close up of the other goodies that I made to go along with the journal. The jumbo paper clip which could be used as just that or as a bookmark, and a magnetic noteclip. I'm not sure if you can tell, but I ran out of the brown paper with the pink spots, so I took some plaion brown cardstock and my pink gelly roll pen. I wish I had taken a picture of the inside of the journal. I had covered that as well and added a little pocket for her to stick notes or receipts or whatever.
