Weight Loss Journal

Look! I made something today! LOL. This was a spiral bound notebook I found in the dollar bin at Michaels and I finally figured out something to do with it! The cat stamp is a Penny Black stamp and I colored it in with watercolor pencils and blended with a Dove Blender. I applied clear EP over just a few of the flowers and also the sun. The sun looks silver in this picture but it's not :) The ribbon is wired and 1.5" wide.
After I colored in the image, I used my Ticket Punch. Then I used a stipple brush and Bashful Blue and added a little color around the edges. Then I mounted the image on a piece of white foam core matboard the exact size of the image. Next I mounted that onto Bashful Blue Cardstock which I also punched with the Ticket Punch.

This is what the notebook started out looking like. Just plain pink and white stripes. Picture is a little blurry sorry!

I ran my cardstock through my Cuttlebug for some interest. Then I attached the ribbon.

Then I attached the cardstock to the notebook. I haven't decided if I want to put something in the blank space at the bottom of the book or leave it as is. I toyed around with some things but didn't like them. So I may just leave it alone! I plan on using this as a weight loss journal. Thanks for looking! :)

  1. WOW! What a transformation. I'm so glad you showed us the "before", so we can see how fantabulous the "after" journal is.

    Great job!
