ODBD Journal...


I found a challenge over at the Our Daily Bread Designs blog to use a scripture on your project and I thought it was a great opportunity to make another altered journal...

I started with a slim exercise book and covered the front and back with K&Co paper, wrapping it around the spine and also lining the inside of the cover as well. I added a decorative strip where the two papers overlap, cut using Spelbinders edgeabilities dies. The corners of all the pages and cover were rounded using a Zutter corner punch. The scripture (from one of ODBD's Scripture collections) was stamped on Very Vanilla with Chocolate Chip ink then die-cut with nestabilities and layered on a Spellbinders floral oval shape. I stamped some butterflies from a Tim Holtz set in choc chip ink and attached them around the sentiment with dimensional glue. I added some vanilla satin ribbon and a button to finish.

Thanks for stopping by!
