Getting the chance to scrapbook and play the last couple days. It feels so darn good.
Just wanted to share my circle journal in a box. This is for an artsy circle journal I am participating in with some very creative ladies. I thought they needed a challenge. And rather than taking it "out of the box" I decided I would keep it "in the box."
This box comes from a company called The Weathered Door. For this project I painted it with the color chocolate from Making Memories and added a bunch of rub ons and embossing and such on the cover. The cover also doubles as the sign-in location (I took photos last night before boxing it up – apologize for the interesting colors).
The theme of the album box is play. The theme of the larger project is play as well (we are all about playing) so I simply wanted to repeat that idea here in the jounal. Inside the box are a bunch of blocks. The women are instructed to decorate the blocks in whatever manner they would like – as long as it relates to play in one way or another.
I can't wait to see how this looks when it returns home!
I also had the chance to finally do some pages again for the Creating Garden at Two Peas. The theme this month is fabric – I was totally loving using my sewing machine and pulling out what bits of fabric I have around here (which is not much). There are a TON of amazingly inspiring pages over there. Check them out.
Here are a few that I am particularly fond of this month:
And then this was my favorite of the ones I did…
That's it for now. Working on my first page for my Christmas journal and completing a couple other circle journal pages that are long overdue.
And answering emails that have been patiently waiting…
