Giraffe journal

Sorry for the longish absence, have had a really busy few days. Sadly, too busy to stamp so this is the only project I have to show you until I get time to stamp some more!

This is a 6”x6” journal I made using some bright and cheery Summer Picnic paper. I think this spotty sheet goes very well with the spots on the giraffe from Wild About You. The grass is a fun touch – simply take a scrap of cardstock and cut the “grass” with your scissors. They curl naturally but you can encourage them with the edge of your scissors if you wish. The insides of the covers are covered with Pumpkin Pie cardstock.
