Journal Gift

Hello Everyone! Today, instead of a card I have a Journal!  Every year I make these for my children to give their teachers for the end of the school year.  Here in Australia the school year finishes in December which is followed by the long Summer Break.  This one went to my daughter's Kindy teacher (who also taught my two boys) who told me she was looking forward to getting another as early as September!  :)  I'm happy to say she loved this one!

I began with a Spirax notebook and then cut a piece of paper to size and punched the side with the spiral edge punch.  I've used the flip side of the paper to create a panel down the side and topped it with a couple of ribbons.  I've stamped the image from Flourishes' Summer Blossoms (perfect for the hot Summer weather we are having now!) in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics and cut with the Large Oval Nestabilities.  I've matted it with Vintage Pink Bazzill cut with Floral Oval Nestabilities.  To finish I've cut out the letters for the name and added a few pink pearls to the corner.

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you are inspired to stamp!
