coffee love {journal part 4}

 starbucks-journal-001.gif had to sub at the school on monday, so i didn’t have much time to scrap…. of course, with this album, the pages are soo easy and quick, i threw together this page in only a few minutes.
 starbucks-journal-002.gif used one of the new chipboard shapes that i got on sale the other day.  used my sticker maker and made it really easy to adhere to the page.
 starbucks-journal-003.gif used a starbucks cardboard cup cozy for this layout.  that’s all.

just a quick easy layout.

as you can see, i’ve been stuck on the coffee theme.

maybe tomorrow i’ll move onto another topic.

happy scrappin!

java queen {journal part 3: sunday scrappin}

Sunday Scrappin’ 
ta-da’s: this journal has been my current project.  my blog, this past week contains many ta-da’s that are all a part of’s: continue to work on my journal, also some thank you cards and cards of encouragement.

Sunday Scrappin’ Question: How long could I scrap without purchasing new products?  Without WANTING to purchase?  never…always something new…  How long COULD i go, using what i already own? a looooong time. 

got to use some of my new stamps & stickers for both of these layouts.
this is one of my favorite stamp sayings.  the drops & coffee rings on this paper, i actually made with real coffee.
love this vintage-looking girl!!  {java queen}  just got this set of stamps this week.  it came with a bunch of coffee & tea pictures and sayings.
for more dynamics and emphasis on her, i stamped her again on another sheet of paper and used adhesive foam squares to raise the image a little.
again, i love doing pages for my journal!  this size is alot of fun.  you can be as creative as you want, yet, it’s not a huge 12 x 12 sheet, so it’s alot faster.   try it!

journal album { part 2 continued }

ja-2-6.gif love these owls
ja-2-7.gif this is the back side of the journalling tag that goes inside of the envelope. it’s just cardstock and i used colored pencils to add the lines for journalling.
ja-2-8.gif front side. love using the staples to hold the ribbon in place.
ja-2-9-upclose.gif i’ve never been fond of people taking my picture. one thing i am learning, is to love myself–flaws & all. i have been trying to take more photos of myself, something to leave behind, once i’m gone.

journal album {part 2}

i made another page for my journal album.  again, i used some paper that i had purchased a long time ago and simply was saving it.    this page is actually a top-loading envelope.  so my journalling will actually go inside. 
i used one of my favorite types of embellishments, the metal letters.  i was also able to use some of my felt leaves.  those too, i had bought a while back and never knew what to use them for.  they come by the yard, like ribbon, and you cut what you want to use.  plus they are adhesive on the back–which is fantastic!
i used my ‘label-maker’ or whatever you want to call it.  i love how it makes it look old, well-worn, loved.
this is the back of the envelope.  i love the little owl stamp.  i also love using the { and }.  those i had cut with a cricut—thanks, Lisa!!!!
just a close up…this is totally true about me.  “little things make me happy!!!”

journal album {part 1}

my current scrapbook project is kind of a combo.  i’ve had this binder, and different inserts sitting here and could never decide what to do with it….so, i started working on it.  i think it’s going to be kind of a journal album.  mini scrapbook.  scrapbooking journal.  art binder.  whatever it develops into, i’m just kind of going with the flow. here’s what i have so far….(my camera wasn’t cooperating, so a few are blurry….)….i’ve also covered up our family picture on page one–file divider…….just because.  this page was fun to create.  i have a diecut for my quickutz that cuts the tabs and i will be journalling about the picture on the back.  i will post more pictures as it continues to grow.
