SunShine and Warm Breezes - Blog Hop

I've been busy crafting and designing a fun project for our Team Blog Hop.  There has been some shuffling of teams in Canada, as some of our teams went straight to corporate and our executive team felt that those teams were not getting the full benefit of belonging to a team.  So my team, Atlantic Scrappers along with my uplines fall under Team Brae-er now.

Our Team Blog Hop has 12 consultants with fabulous projects to make you think of warm summer breezes instead of the cold winter we've been experiencing.

If you have come from Create With Alyson then you are hopping in the right direction.

My project is a covered journal using Balloon Ride paper and compliments and True To Life Stamp Set(C1575).

For my project I took the Crystal Blue patterned paper and used Liquid Glass to adhere the paper to the journal.  I distressed all the edges using Chocolate Ink.  I used the ZipStrip featured on this patterned paper to make the seam, and distressed this as well.  I cut our a tag from Colonial White Cardstock and stamped the tag image from the stamp set using Saddle Ink and Crystal Blue Ink.  To stamp in 2 different colors I taped off the words preventing the Saddle from inking, then peeled off the tape.  Then I took a sponge and inked up the words with Crystal Blue Ink.  I added a string at the top to finish off the tag.  Then added some dimensional elements from the coordinating compliments.  To finish it off I added the current year to the date element, and covered the whole Journal with Modge Podge to give it  a finished look.

You next stop on this hop is Arlene's Creative Space.

If you like this project and would like to make one of your own, you can shop here.
