Making and Decorating Journals

Like many paper crafters, I love stationery of all kinds, and especially journals and notebooks. When I was invited to run a session for some local business owners, I felt this was the perfect opportunity to share that aspect of crafting.

There were 6 lovely ladies, and we had a great evening. To get them all relaxed and started, we made some personalised bookmarks - using an initial as the main centre-piece - and this was heat embossed in a choice of colours.

After they had got into the 'crafting mood' we moved onto the journals. Each person could choose the design and words for their journals - and I took with me a selection of stamp sets that have some great sayings and motivational quotes, which they also heat embossed, adding extra detail as they wished.

You can see above the embossed wording in white.  It was a very successful evening, and as a result I decided to use the bookmarks for this weeks coffee and card! The stamp sets used below are from Penned and Painted.
