For my 40th birthday, several of my closest sister-friends and I went to a spa in the NC mountains for a long weekend. I made journals for each of us in which we could list the things we want to do in this life. Big things, small things, odd things. I look at my list each year in my birthday month -- adding new things and checking off the things I've done. I really enjoy my journal, and now I make versions of them for friends often.
Here's one I made for a friend recently. It's a mix of paper/stamps/glue and My Digital Studio. I'm having fun using the coordinating digital and traditional Epic Day kits!
- Basic Grey
- Calypso Coral
- Label Love
- Lovely Letters Alphabet (retired)
Paper and card:
- Whisper White
- This and That Epic Day DSP
- This and That Epic Day digital studio designer set
- Epic Day This and That Designer Stickers
- Artisan Label punch
- Itty Bitty Shapes punch
- Calypso Coral ribbon
Behind the scenes:
The cover for the journal originally looked like this.
I left it on the display easel on my desk for a few days. After I looked at it for a while, I decided that the cover was BORING. So, I added more paper, some punches, and pearls. I like the revised version MUCH better. :-)
