I’ve been wanting to create my own prayer journal for awhile now but considering the condition of my stamp room until just recently that was not going to happen. Now that it is back in good working order I decided tonight would be a great night to do finally work on that project.
The spiral bound journal I picked up at Michael in the dollar bins. You have got to love that place! I used the SU! Spiral Punch on the left side, it fits just perfect on these. I pulled out some left over Enchante Designer Series paper for the background since it has such a soft, pretty look to it. The cross is stamped in Perfect Plum on Vanilla card stock and then cut out. I mounted that on some Mellow Moss card stock and then cut that out for a small layer. This was a huge task for me since I am scissor challenged! I popped the cross up on some dimensionals and then mounted it on Pale Plum card stock that has been lighted stamped with the flowers from Refuge and Strength in Pale Plum and the edges distressed using the cutter tool. The sentiment was printed out on my computer on Vanilla card stock. It was mounted on Mellow Moss and then Pale Plum. I added a few ribbons to the spiral spine but did not want to over do it. I think it could use a few more but I seem to not have any other ribbons in coordinating colors….how can that be?!
I am looking forward to start using my journal during my evening devotional time. I like to read My Daily Bread and talk with God each night before I head off to bed. I’m not a morning person and so I really enjoy ending my day this way.
Thanks for coming by. Happy Stamping!
