Journal part 3: My current journal

This is my current journal, and I will share with you some bits and bobs from it ๐Ÿ™‚
My journal

It’s another Daler Rowney of course! I decorated the book with Making memories stuff. I am missing one of the flower gems off the front though, and I have a velour lilac ribbon as a bookmark that co-ordinates.

and here’s a sneek peek at some of my entries (more after cut as image heavy!)

Hoodie

"Bummed out" word-fetti

Happiness

Stamp test
Self portrait
Sketch
College pic
Moo stickers
Entry from hospital

and some of the bits in the back of my book: Hannah Montana sticker pocket, Word-fetti, flower stickers and letters from Rachael and Katie ๐Ÿ™‚
The items in my journal

These word-fetti stickers by Making Memories are awesome. Scrapbooker Ali Edwards uses them all the time, and I find them awesome for my book.
Word-fetti
If you are interested in making your own journal, I would suggest taking a peek at the 7 Gypsies line, or getting an Album like the American crafts binder or a Maya Road binder, take a look here. Now my absolute FAVOURITE book, is Making Journals by Hand by Jason Thompson. It’s my go to book, and although it talks about making the journals (and they gorgeous by the way!) it also discusses techniques and ideas ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously, I love nothing more than to sit and read this book for a quick pick me up and inspiration! If you look at my “stamp test” image above you will see that I reference it ๐Ÿ˜‰
