Keep Calm Notebook

Here's a quick project: I created the artwork using digital images and Photoshop, then had it printed through an on-line print service. So, basically, it's a 5"x7" photo. I adhered the artwork to a piece of thin cardboard (from a paper stack) and used another piece for the back cover. I rounded the corners, added some notebook paper and bound it with my Bind-it-All. To finish, I tied on a some white tulle, a ribbon and a cute little teapot charm ... easy-peasy! I see lots more of these in my future.

Wow ... I've Been Away For A While

Last fall and the holiday season were really busy for me ... both personally and at work. I did quite a bit of crafting, but just didn't take the time to update my blog. One of the things I got caught up in was some hybrid crafting and digital crafting. I took a couple of classes at JessicaSprague.com and fell in love with PhotoShop. Don't get me wrong ... I'm still a "hands-on" papercrafter, but the digital world is cool, too. My favorite, by far, has to be digital art journaling. Here's a page I made as part of the art journaling class I took from Jessica and Nancie Rowe Janitz:


The background art and the bird are from a collection of digital elements created by Nancie, check out her website. I have lots more to share with you and hope to have it posted the next few weeks!
