Revision Journal For My Daughter

Hello, I have a journal to share with you today. My daughter Emily will be taking her GCSE'S soon and I wanted to make her a revision journal to help keep her organised. The idea came to me after visiting Phil Martins blog of Honey Pot Crafts. Phil has designed some beautiful background papers and has popped a few freebies for us crafters to play with here. The butterfly paper was just what I was looking for to make Emily's journal. The paper has layers of words and butterflies in monochrome colours. One phrase is "My hope my dreams", which was just so perfect. I Used my AccuCut 6"album die, which cuts covers, pages and tabbed pages and I cut these from grey board. I cut the butterflies and alphabet letters using my Silhouette die cutting machine, the original by quickutz, and is quite old but perfect for tiles for scrapbooks. I used grey and white textured card from my stash and inked every thing with black soot distress ink, putting it all together with some large book rings. I used some black rub-ons from my stash to put the subject names on the tabs of the book dividers. Phil has some beautiful paper for sale in his shop. I hope you like it crafty hugs, Julie-Anne x
