For My Team...

There is something incredibly satisfying about surrounding yourself with papers, inks, and an assortment of bling as you set out to create for someone special. That's precisely how I felt prior to convention when I began to craft a little something for my "first string" team members who were in Anaheim with me!
Our journal is so simple and fun to create as it features a clear pocket on the front that holds a 5"x7" piece of artwork. With that size canvas, you can create to your heart's content! I even used a pattern from our Wishes card book for inspiration!
Papers from the Sophia collection provide sweet, summer colors and before I could say "bibbidi-bobbidi-boo", I had completed the journal covers!
Note that the background has added texture with dry-embossed lines that have been sanded and many of the papers have added depth with sponged edges.
With an accordion-folded flower, a little button, and a few stamped images, the piece came to life just like magic! Check out the quote, a saying that was woven throughout our convention experience... "A dream is a wish your heart makes..."  Enjoy!
