Altered Journal & Card

Hi there,
I'm back today with an altered journal and card combo for our friend Beatrice, who is travelling overseas to study.

The mouse image is by Sweet & Sassy Stamps and I coloured it using Copics. I wanted to personalise the journal and added her name using the Sweet Alpha Doodles set by the Sweet Stamp Shop (the frame is from the same set) - I stamped the name and frame in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.

The red cardstock is by GinaK Designs and the DP and ribbons are from my stash.

This bunny image is by The Cat's Pajamas and the sentiment is from the same set. I used some of the left-over paper from the journal to paper-piece the card. I also used my sewing machine to do the stitching. The clouds were cut using the flat-bottom dies by Die-namics.

Thanks for looking!

I love doing altered journals. Yours is so fun and colorful!! (I'm still looking for a way in protecting the front cover from spillages - which always happens to mine - but not messing up the design)
