"Brushed" Journal

Good Morning Crafters!

This morning I bring to you a simple journal that I made.  I journal pretty much every morning and every couple of months I need a new journal.  So I take a black and white composition book and alter it.

The verse on the cover says:

"I can do all things through Christ which strengthenth me."
Phillipians 4:13

I stamped it using Hollyhock ink and then edged it with the same ink color.

I'm not sure if you can tell but I random stamped on the binding of the notebook using our Dreamer stamp set and our Pixie ink on the Pixie cardstock which is included in the Brushed paper pack.

I used our exclusive Cricut cartridge - Artiste to cut out the mat for the sentiment and the 2 shapes behind it.  You can find the image on page 54, C4, Accent 4, < f > cut at 1 1/4" x 2 3/4" and then 2 increments up in size from there.  I used the Fit to Length key on the Cricut Expression.

I used our beautiful Brushed paper pack to cover the notebook.  I also used our Pink Shimmer Trim for the side of the binding.
