My daughter started middle school this year. And after I got past the weeping and wishing my baby girl wasn't growing up so fast I decided to make her a journal. A place to record anything and everything about her very first year of middle school. She loves it! As a matter of fact while I was working on it she kept checking in to see if it was finished yet. :-) Too cute. I'm glad she enjoys writing so much.
Supplies Cardstock, Chipboard, Felt, Flair, Rubons: American Crafts; Patterned paper: American Crafts (paper airplane, blue dots), KI Memories (B&W doodles), Pebbles (orange dot), Rusty Pickle (B&W); Stickers: 7gypsies (label), American Crafts; Ribbon: Michaels; Tape: Ginko Papers.
I created a layered border strip on the journal with the Japanese Masking Tape, an American Crafts sticker, patterned paper and some machine stitching.
This Fair Ribbon was fun to make! Check out the ones that Laura Vegas made in the September 2010 issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine. They're in the Tips & Tricks column. I basically made a lollipop flower and added ribbon to it. Easy peasy!
I created this card and tucked it into my daughters backpack (with a note of encouragement inside) the night before her first day of middle school. I love how well the black flourish on the Japanese Masking Tape works together with the large black flourish sticker from American Crafts.
Supplies Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper; Patterned paper: American Crafts (yellow), Rusty Pickle (B&W); Stickers: American Crafts; Tape: Ginko Papers; Brads: American Crafts, Queen & Co.
I also created this birthday card for my daughter. She's turning 11 soon...sigh. I love the bright colors, they're perfect for my daughter. She has such a bright and sunny personality...even if she is growing up too fast. ;-)
