  1. Superb journal page! What a sweetheart smiling so confidently at the photographer! It's great to see the pumpkin colors repeated in all the layers and embellishments above! Date stamping's important part of documentation! So thanks for sharing at MTTC's numbers theme! --Becca/DT

  2. Oh my, I just spent 10 minutes, before I could comment, and watch your tutorial on making up one of your journal pages. And before the tutorial I spent time in looking at all the embellishments and your use of stitching. And machine stitching none-the-less. I have never done a journal and this could inspire me to do one; but I probably won't. I just enjoy journal pages that people create and love to watch them being put together with so many different textures and ideas. Love your page. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble.

    1. Thanks so much for viewing the video! Journals really are fun to make and use!! You'd love making one and I'm sure it would be gorgeous!
