What’s NOT on my desk today~!~ The Stamping Ground is where you can share the current state of your workspace with others, and mine is a happy mess at the moment. I have my colorful drawers of bits out as well as stacks of paper, glue, punches, twine etc. My daughters desk has a pile of Ephemera that she was sorting in for her Junk Journal and a tower of markers.
All this stuff was out to create three “Altered Journal Cards” for a swap on swap-bot. Altered journal cards are basically 3×4 project life type embellished cards, or a big ATC that has space for journaling. I started with scrapbook paper and backed it with cardstock. The brown one was the first one I created and I made double sided.
The second one I made actually is a Project life card that I added a postage “Love” pocket stamp to. I slipped in a tiny #”4″ playing card, and completed my altering with a pink heart button.
The third card I made by gluing two 3×4 Stampin’ Up! scrapbook papers together and adding “You are my Sunshine” ribbon to. I found a chipboard sun, Love charm, and tiny flower scrap that I layered on a orange circle to complete. (I have to keep this one I think!)
My Swap partner likes bold colors and is Christian so I made the fourth card with scripture and space for journaling that is embellished with a repurposed broken butterfly pin, a ribbon flower, and some washi tape.
The fourth card was made again by backing two pieces of scrapbook paper and adding a die cut journal spot. I embellished this one with ribbons, flowers, and a tea tag quote.
It’s sunny and 48′ so I’m going to enjoy a walk, then tackle the cleaning! ~ Enjoy your week ~
