This month we have a fun hop for you (well, they are ALL fun). The Design Team is using the CarlaCraft Binding System. It is so easy to use. Here is a link to a youtube tutorial. I can't wait to see what the other team members created.
The blog hop starts today and ends on Sunday, July 3rd at midnight Central time. Please visit each DT members’ blog to view their project and leave feedback. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please). One person’s name will be drawn at random to receive a CarlaCraft Binding System and coil assortment. The lucky winner’s name will be announced on the Inky Antics blog next Monday, so remember to stop back and see if you’ve won.
If you came from Michelle's awesome blog post you are in the right spot. If not, be sure to hop over to the Inky Blog so you don't miss anyone. You will want to leave a comment along the way on each blog.
Have you heard of the Smoosh book rage by K & Co? It's not a new concept, but a twist on an old one. It's basically a journal book that you fill with pictures, memories, thoughts, etc. I had one when I was younger and I'm sure alot of you did also.
Rather than buy one, I decided to use the CarlaCraft Binder and make my own.
I then used Tombow's Stamp Runner Permanent Adhesive to adhere the cardstock to the chipboard. After that I just decorated the front using Cosmo Cricket cutouts, Basic Grey alphabet stickers and buttons, and a stamped Inky Antic image called Raincoat Lucy.
Then it's just a matter of what kind of papers you want inside. I used several Cosmo Cricket pieces and then found solids and other patterns that matched and cut them all 5.5" x 8.5". I have 15 pages, plus journal pieces from the Cosmo Cricket pkt I had and a couple of envelopes that I can put receipts or other memos in.
Coil all the pages together and you have your own Smoosh journal, junk journal, or whatever you want to call it.
Here is a peek at the inside cover:
Now it's time to hop over and see the wonderful project Jovi created. Here are the rest of the pages in my book if you are interested.
I hope you enjoyed this book. I realize it may be kinda boring with all the blank pages, but I will share my pages along the way as I fill them up.
