Angels Landing Gratitude Journal

Today I got the opportunity to create for Angels Landing something that I have been wanting for a while but had never taken the time to make for myself. When Judi suggested a Gratitude Journal might be a good project for this week, I thought, "Yes! Now I'll finally get to have one of my own!" Thanks, Judi!!

I titled my journal Counting God's Blessings! I don't think it will take me long to fill it. I may be needing another one very soon!!

The covers of my Gratitude Journal were created using two pieces of 4.5 inch x 6.5 inch turquoise textured chipboard from DCWV . I attached a strip of designer paper by the Paper Studio and used my Kombo ibico binder to punch the holes and add the plastic comb.

The sentiment was computer generated on white Georgia Pacific card stock using the Dauphin font and cut out with my Nestabilities Labels 3. I sponged the embossed center with So Saffron and the edge with Tempting Turquoise.

The sculpted spray of flowers and leaves was created using digital images from Simply Flowers by Angels Landing printed on white Georgia Pacific card stock. They were watercolored with Stampin' Up reinkers, scored on the back, folded, and attached using layered dimensionals. Microbeads were added to the centers of the flowers, and ribbons tied through the holes in the binding.

Digital Images: Simply Flowers by Angels Landing

Papers: White Georgia Pacific, Pink Passion by Stampin' Up, Floral Designer Paper by the Paper Studio

Inks: So Saffron and Tempting Turquoise by Stampin' Up

Reinkers: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Pink Passion, Regal Rose, Green Gable, and Groovy Guava by Stampin' Up

Chipboard: Turquoise Textured Chipboard by DCWV

Embellishments: Ribbon, Microbeads, and Dimensionals

Tools: Kombo ibico binder, Nestabilities 3 die cut

You can check to see the projects design team members have prepared for you today using other digital images by Angels Landing over on Judi's Blog.

  8. You found the perfect designer paper for this lovely journal. The DP coordinates so well with the style of the floral images.

    I feel privileged to have had you on my Summer DT, Lynn. Consistently, week after week, you have created cards and projects that are so appropriate for the suggested themes. You've also gone out of your way to leave thoughtful comments on all of the team members' blogs. Thanks for all your efforts. The Summer team wouldn't have been the same without you.

    I mentioned this in the comments section of my blog post today, but I'll repeat it here... I wish I could clone you 10 times for one of my future teams. ;)
