DT Challenge: Studio Calico album

ihp01 Hello!!  Today’s challenge is sponsored by Studio Calico.  They gave us these awesome honeycomb journaling albums to work with.  It’s so exciting to see all the ihp02different ideas the team came up with to use these albums.   They come unbound so you can do tons of different things with them.

I am not a big ihp03journaler but I have been pinning tons of great things.  As a few of you know, we’ve been trying to sell our house and move to NH to build a new home.  But, a few ihp04weeks ago we got some disappointing news about our current home value which will delay our plans to move  for a while.  So, I needed some positive motivation so I ihp05decided to print out a bunch of good sayings that I’ve pinned and make a little book of happy things for when I need a lift.

I used the Happier ihp06 and Hello Spring pads to create the binding held together with our exclusive i {stick} papers redline tape.  I used the Nesting Hexagons to create a focal point (popped up on dimensional dots) on the cover, stamped with Paper Smooches Simply Said and Geo-Graphic, stamped in Memento inks and colored with Copics.  I added some KaiserCraft Sparklets for some bling and then some white twill to keep it shut.

Be sure to look at all the other DT projects, including our special guest designer!  It’s a great hop!

Now before you rush off…here’s some other news…

What a great "happy journal"! Love this idea. I should make one because it seems like I could always use one. LOL

That is such an awesome idea for a journal. I have lots of "words" pinned that I should put in a book. Thanks for the great inspiration!

Dang this is adorable! I love this idea- I have aton of inspirational quotes on my Pinterest board but I should put them in a place like this so I can refer to them more often! Great inspiration! (The housething will eventually all come together! Just keep the faith!)
