It must be love!

Love is in the air!

It's swap time over in Junk Journal Junkies #1 on Facebook. I am also happy to say that I can now do video flip thru's since most of my craft room has been unpacked and I have my tripods! =) But, I guess I'm still too new to figure out how to load the video directly to my blog post - so below you will see a link to my YouTube channel and the video - I will get this figured out sooner or later LOL.

So, this journal was a nice break from what has become my norm, 2 signature journals. It's a single sig, soft cover journal with 8 papers which make 32 pages (fronts and backs.) Like always, I leave a lot of open space to journal in, add pics or even to doodle in.

Please forgive my choice of backgrounds for my pictures! After I finished filming the flip thru I put my craft table back to normal and that includes my 2 cutting mats. So yes, I was a little too lazy to move all the stuff for pics.

My tag is actually wrong here, the FB group is really Junk Journal Junkies #1.

I get pretty much all my images from Pinterest. And the paperclips are plastic button that I have cut the shanks off of and glued to card stock paper punches or ribbon with bead dangles I made.

The ATC is from a swap I did yeeears ago. Not that most of my goodies are unpacked, I have decided to stop being a hoarder and use all the beautiful goodies!

My little cheeky anatomical heart ~

The queen herself!

A real doily I bought last summer while at en Estate Sale.

Another ATC, looove this one! Okay, so this is my little Valentine's Day Swap. She was put in the mail today for her new owner. I sure hope she likes it 1/2 as much as I enjoyed putting it all together. 😊 Until next time.

Thanks for stopping by!

Office Fun

I remember working in an office - in a weird way I sorta miss working outside the home, but then again ~ 😄

I created this journal actually by accident at the end of last year. I was participating in a swap on Facebook and didn't read the directions as thoroughly as I should've (imagine that!) And almost any time I make a journal, I make two - one to swap and one to keep. So , needless to say, I ended up with two journals that only halfway meant the swap requirements! Oh well.

So, having more than what I need, I decided to put it up for a private swap in the group. She has found a new home and will be mailed out soon. Yeppie!

So, I always like to leave plenty of space for actually being able to use the journal. And in every journal I create I ad at least one tongue and cheek or silly element - it's just a must for me. I added these two stamped sayings to the very last page 'cuz it took a little longer to make than I figured.

Well, I am off to record a video of the most recent Valentine's Day swap journal I made and from here forward I will add only a few pics and have the video here on my blog =) ~

Thanks for stopping by!

Holiday Gifts

I almost forgot to share these with you! I was asked to create 2 journals to be given as gifts. I failed to take pics of the insides sadly. The journal on the left was for a softball enthusiasts. I cut up a softball and glued in onto the spine. And the journal on the right, adorable little pandas!

I created this journal or the lady that requested these two journals, my aunt Linda =) . I made this mailing envelope journal, I added brown cream shoe polish to give it an aged look. This was my 1st time doing this technique all not be the it will not be the last! I really loved the way is turned out.

For this journal, I used a few different digital kits from Tsunami Rose. I made these before I had my camera ready to video my projects.

I used stamps, trims and some images to compliment the Tsunami Rose kits. Oh, and the pretty stickers I found at Dollar Tree of all places! Crazy the the things you can find there - and you can fell like a millionaire. I  almost hated letting it go! Suppose I need to make one for my own!

Thanks for taking time to look at my creations - as always I appreciate your support.

Hugs and laughter to you,

Peggie Sue
