Lana, you have beautiful work. I can't decide what journal i like the best. Two questions, though, if you do not mind? The eyelets you use, are they the large ones in the Stampin' Up catalog or do you buy thoes at a craft store too? And the Mat board, is this like the thick cardboard piecs you get in a new calendar or is it the thick (1/4 - 1/2") board some use for shaker cards? Is it acutally called "mat board". Sorry for the questions but just like everyone else i am eager to try this project and "wow" my friends!!! Thanks for all of your wonderful ideas!!!

I also can't decide which of your journals I like best. I love this one! (and I found some mat board left here in WI-you didn't buy it all!!) The first store I went to only had acid-free and it was expensive, but the second store had a huge selection at $5-$7 a sheet(KarrieLyne, it was in the picture framing area of the store, and was sold in very large pieces--30x40--and it was called mat board). Hope to make one tomorrow!! Thanks for all your inspiration!

I love when you mix the Stipple celebration with the teddy bear. Makes him more bearable....:)

I, too, would like to know how to make the journals. I've looked through your gallery and your work is OUTSTANDING. Everything you do is just beautiful. I'm brand new, also, and can't imagine ever being able to create such magic.

I'm just a newbie, but I have bookmarked almost all of your gallery. These journals are beautiful. Can you please point me to the directions or template so that I can try & CASE your journals? Again, they are very beautiful!
