Housewarming gift

A friend has recently moved house, and I thought making a fun little journal to write notes (perhaps phone messages?) into would be a useful thing. And while I was at it, I made a matching photo frame.

I used the now retired Outlaw SU! DSP for both projects. For the journal, I also used the Think Big stamp set along with some Very Vanilla, Sage Shadow and Chocolate Chip cardstocks. I attched the paper to the journal with my red liner tape, and for the frame I used modpodge (both on the frame and then to seal the paper on top.) To finish off the journal I added some grosgrain and gingham ribbons on the spiral binding. I have a contrasting paper lining the inside covers as well...looks very cute!

I really hope she likes them!!!

Supplies: (all supplies from SU! unless noted)
Stamps: Think Big

Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Very Vanilla, Outlaw DSP

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow

Acc: grosgrain ribbon, gingham ribbon, modpodge, red liner tape.
