the last of the February Projects.

unless I get wild hair… as they say.
by the way… the Teresa Collins journal it die cut stuff is in! I ordered mine… :)
First is INDY, an 8.5 x 11 layout …

Journaling reads:
Friday-Jalen brings home Indy, the class pet. He is so excited-especially since it is a long weekend.
Saturday- Jalen plays Xbox Star Wars with Indy.
Sunday- We go to Church and then to Genki for Lunch.
Monday- We take Indy to the Honolulu Zoo. Jordan is sad hat Indy is going back to school tomorrow.

Stampin’ Up! Red cardstock. Red/turquoise patterned paper MME. Scenic Route Chipboard Letters. Prima Flowers. Heidi Swap days of the week journaling spots, tabbed journaling spot. 7 gypsies Memories ribbon. Generic buttons. Bling. American Crafts blue velvet ric rac. Sewing Machine and thread. Mini glue dots.

then piggies:

Journaling reads: Here is Jordan playing sidewalk chalk on the driveway. The sight of these little piggies in slippers makes me smile for so many reasons. First because they are just cute…but also because they are in slippers, in Hawaii. Jalen was born in Alabama and did not learn to wear slippers for a while. The fact that Jordan has these years in Hawaii, experiencing things that I did when I was growing up here…I just can’t explain.
Stampin’ Up! Kraft Cardstock. Scenic Route Patterned paper, arrow, chipboard letters. American Crafts Journaling pen. Buttons and flowers by Making Memories.
america’s game:

Portland Sea Dogs 2003
Journaling reads: we drove down to Portland to take Jalen to a baseball game. I remember parking was on the street. No lot at the field. Strange, huh?

Black Bazzil Cardstock. Kraft cardstock (Stampin’ Up!). 7 gypsies red numbered gaffer’s tape. Autumn Leaves rub on letters, tab. Heidi Swapp tabbed journaling spots. Making Memories- buttons and flowers. Sewing Machine and thread. Colorbox Chestnut Roan ink. Pigment journaling pen.

I used Teresa Collins patterned papers to cover this notebook. Black double stitched ribbon to cover the seam. Black Bazzil cardstock to cover inside of notebook. Scenic route black chipboard J. I also painted diamond glaze over the patterned paper to add gloss and help with the wear of the paper. Epoxy hearts by Making Memories.

I made this chipboard book with my bind it all to fit into a snack box. First I painted the box with brown acrylic paint. Then I adhered the basic grey blush papers. I cut 5 chipboard strips and covered them with the patterned papers. Heidi Swapp: pink tape, pink ghost flowers, flower Bling, tabbed journaling spots. Mini glue dots. Maya Roads pink velvet ribbon. Brown Grosgrain ribbon. 7 gypsies scroll oval stamp. Pigment journaler. Bound with the bind it all.

My artist trading cards were a little challenging for me at first because they were so small…but in the end I was happy. 7 gypsies red tabbed ATCs. Prima pink hydrangea. Heidi Swapp tabbed journaling spots. Pigment journaler. American crafts ribbon. Pink bling.

the last group is my POTD album so far. I switched back to normal large rings until I really need the super supreme sized rings… The dividers are monthly dividers bought at an office store… I added a strip of Making Memories 5th avenue paper and maya roads stitched velvet ribbon. each “4×6” picture is mounted to the same sized cardstock alternating two shades of blue… and the back of the cardstock is the journaling side for the facing picture. I used a Stampin’ Up! journaling stamp, daily news stamp and a date stamp. I have journaled for each day. It was very helpful that I put a little blurb on the blog/flickr account for each day…

wow, did you make it this far? So I am waiting to hear if flat Joscie has made it to Oregon yet… I should have made a book for her adventures… I have had several offers to have her visit. I am very excited. I have a circle journal to work on and a few other odds and ends. Hope this finds you all in good spirits, and I’ll blog you later!
