Just wanted to stop my packing for a min. to share a few pictures with you. This is one of my most recent journals for a swap. The fun thing about this is... I made my own book cloth and covered book board to make the cover. It was easy and so much fun, so now, the sky is the limit for fabric covers.
I decided to use a more retro color pallet which fits me sooo well. I adore everything mid-century!
I used kits from Ephemoire's Peppermint Stick and Calico Collage's Joyful Christmas. I thought they worked nicely together.
All the vintage ephemera I used for the journaling inserts I found during Pinterest searches.
The mini clothes pins and charms I purchased from Walmart and Hobby Lobby. The lace pockets are lace from a dress I purchased at Goodwill.
I hope my swap partner likes this cutie. I know I had a lot of fun creating it. Now, I'm off to pack a few more boxes. Have a wonderful weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!
Smiles & Hugs!
