Handmade journal for a new mom
I made this journal for my friend Ashley who is expecting her first baby in June. She and her husband have been married for seven months and are so excited to add being parents to their lives. They are both wonderful people and are inspirations to many. Ashley wanted a journal to get advice from mom's. I offered to make a personalized journal and this is what I came up with. I bought a small composition notebook from Michael's on sale for $0.70 this week and altered it with scrapbook paper and a digital stamp. Although she is having a boy, I had to add a few subtle feminine touches on there with the ribbon and the female hand complete with rose colored nail polish. I colored the image with my copics. I hope that she likes this journal as much as do.
Hello everyone and thank you so much for visiting me on cuttin' up. I started along this crafting journey in August of 2009 as a way to relax and express myself and it has done that and so much more. I have met so many wonderful people and have unleashed a side of myself that I never knew existed and I must say I love her!
It is amazing how far my talents and knowledge has come since last August and I am so excited to see where my creativity will take me next.
Thanks so much for stopping to visit my blog and hope that you will follow me on this journey.
