Today marks the start of a new Scrapping 4 Fun Challenge. You know that I love these because they are anything goes. I don’t have to just make a card and I find it a fun challenge to see what I can create with the digi that I’m given that isn’t a card!
We always have a sponsor and for this challenge, our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps!
We usually have several digital images to choose from and I got a cute angel with a beautiful sentiment. I wasn’t sure quite what I wanted to do with it, so I decide to create something that I can use as a Christmas gift. I created a pretty journal out of a composition notebook and some patterned paper and ribbon from my stash. Even the notebook was from my stash!!
I kept this fairly simple. I added patterned paper to the front and back covers inside and outside. I created a pocket on each inside cover and added two tags in one of the pockets.
You can see that I added some twine with a charm to the binding and I added a couple of eyelets and ribbon so it can be tied closed.
This digi came in black and white or pre-colored. I chose to use the black and white image and color this in myself. I thought it was adorable.
I love digital stamps. You can do so many things with them. You know I love that I don’t have to find storage space for them and I love that I can resize them and remove or add other images to them. I found it extra wonderful to be able to have all these items in my stash and I was able to create a gift to have on hand to give away.
This is a quick and easy project! I just measured my cover and cut the pieces to fit. I rounded the outside corners and attached the paper with double sided tape. I layered my digi on to a piece of navy cardstock and attached it with the same tape to the front of the journal. I did the same with the inside, adding a couple of pockets because they are always useful.
I have a video for this that will be up on my YouTube channel in a few days. It’s an easy gift idea or just a nice journal for yourself!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope I’ve inspired you to create a quick gift or two to have on hand for someone special.
Remember that you are someone’s reason to smile!!
Have a great day!
