Today, I would like to share a Journal that I took to a gathering a couple weeks ago. I cased this journal by Sharlene Meyer here. If you've never seen her work, you've got to check it out! The only things I did differently, is I took the ring off of the book, so I could cover the whole thing. I cut the card stock 5 1/4" x 5 1/4", then traced the two wholes closest to the ends with pencil. Then I used the retired Stampin' Up! Spiral Border punch to punch the wholes. (The only confusing thing, was trying to put it back together once I got it covered:) Then I glued the card stock to the chipboard album using the Anywhere Glue Stick. The only other thing I did differently is, I used the Timeless Type alphabet Medium Sizzlits dies to make the initials of the first names of the people attending. I wanted to personalize them a bit. Everyone loved them. Thanks Sharlene for sharing your beautiful work:)
