|I inked thru a diamond stencil with pink and tan Distress ink.|
Love how it echoes the opposite page.
Pretty cute already. Then I cut a bunch of papers to size, folded them in half to make a signature, and held the whole thing together with a rubber band. Couldn't be easier. Actually, it could be easier because I wasn't smart enough to choose my papers first and then cut the cover to match. Next time.
Then I did some stenciling on a few of the white pages (the backs of the scrapbook paper) and added some fun tapes to others. I really like the finished journal cause you can add or remove pages, you can add more signatures with more rubber bands - very versatile. You could also use ribbon or yarn or baker's twine or whatever you want to hold the papers in. I won't get one back until late in November and by then it'll be a real surprise cause I'll have forgotten all about it.
