The colors are Cherry Ice, Emerald Sprinkle, Vanilla Shimmer and Gold Glow.

Coverd Journal and tag....

Here's a quick little project I did last night. I covered my latest journal. When I read and study scripture I have a journal I write everything in...this is my third one. I just started doing this about a year ago and love it. I buy the composition books when the back to school supplies come out for about a quarter.

This was a very simple cover...I love the color purple and was going through scraps to get rid of and decided to them here. I first placed all the scraps down with mat gel, stamped all over and covered with Matt Mod Podge to seal it all in.
This is the inside back cover...same cards stock and more butterflies....what can I say...I love butterflies and the tag I created too!
Now the back cover...just more scraps of purple paper and for the spine I used a decorative design tape I got at Michaels on clearance.

CC cards finished...

The theme for this month card club was "Thank You" and here is mine I created.
I first chose the card and envelope style from the "Wild Card" templates by Wordsworth...I've had these for about 5 years...a friend of mine from a previous card club gave them to me as a birthday gift.
It's a trifold type card..the front has two flaps...the middle I used K & Co. paper to cover, than sponged rust ink all around the edges and stamped the sentiment. The top flap, I clear embossed a flourish stamp and used my new butterfly M. S. punch.

On the middle flap I clear embossed flourish stamps again and below is the inside.
I used the standard oval Nestibilite dies and stamped the birds on the smaller one. I used a gel pen called "Clear Cosmos" on the three dots on the the this gel pen it's so sparkly!

and last but not least are the envelopes that match the card template.
