My youngest daughter is heading off to college next week and asked me to make her a journal. Audbrey Hepburn is her favorite actress, and black/white and blue are her favorite decorating colors.
Luckily in one of my shopping frenzies at eclectic Paperie, I had picked up some Tinkering Ink papers - Lauren Bacall, Humphrey Bogart and Marlena Dietrich. If you havenít seen these papers, they are black and white double-sided papers with the reverse image on either side. Very cool!
The journal we found at Target had dividers and pockets, and since they were brown I made new black ones to replace the originals and then attached tabs made from the SU Round Tab Punch and attached the tabs with eyelets. I picked out a few pieces of chipboard, covered them with some scraps of the designer paper, and used Making Memories rub on sentiments on the pictures and chipboard. I wanted to use sentiments that would pertain to her first year away from home and this great adventure she has before her.
