Try It Tuesday~a journal and a sneak look!!!

Hi everyone ~hope you had an awesome Thanksgiving and got your full of Turkey and trimmings!!!! I started out with The Paper Bakery's November add on kit and a composition notebook. I used the Echo Park papers and covered the front and back and inside covers. I then took Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas and trimmed out the edges, so no raw paper edges were exposed.

I then started laying my design out on the front, deciding what will go where. The material in the kit is so fun and I knew I wanted to make a Gluber { by Cosmo Cricket} flower { I had enough material to get two flowers} I loved the trims in the kit~so vintage Christmas to me~the blue foil trim!!!

The inside of the composition notebook has a large pocket for receipts or notes. A great notebook for keeping track of all of those peeps you buy Christmas gifts for. I added some rubber stamps and inked all the edges. All of the embellishments were adhered with Helmar 450 Quick Dry!!!

Another view of the front~and the bottom photo, a view of the back.

Love how it came out and it will last for many years to come!! This kit is full of handmade embellishments that are sure to please!!!
