Here is a little journal I created with Arranged with Love. This set comes with a gorgeous HUGE background stamp that has a little journal box built in. There are many scripted sentiments to add in-- so it is easier than ever to create simple but stunning creations. For this journal, I chose to layer the sentiment from Say it with Flowers over the background. The background is also trimmed a bit on top and bottom to fit the journal front.
To make it look like it was uncropped, I simply cut the stamped image to the size I wanted and then took a black marker and a ruler and re-drew the border along the edge. I then colored the background with Copic markers, and then added the sentiment and matted it on more Pure Luxury white and black onyx cardstock.
All of the ribbons used on this project are from Gina K Designs Stamp TV kits. As a final touch, I stamped the background in red ink on white cardstock and rolled it up to fit inside a R.S.V.P. pen.
Materials used: Stamps-Arranged with Love, Say it with Flowers (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink; copic markers; cardstock-white, black onyx (Gina K Designs); Pink (Prism); ribbons (Gina K Designs, from Stamp TV kits); journal (Michael's $1 spot); red ink (SU!); R.S.V.P. pen (Pentel); brads (Gina K Designs); Spellbinders Labels 4 and Long scalloped rectangles; Cuttlebug (Provocraft).
Aren't the colors fun? I went with the colors in the digital paper for the design of the card. I printed it on Pure Luxury white cardstock and it looks beautiful. I also used some of the new Pure Luxury Soft Sand cardstock to mat the main image and some white Pure Luxury behind it.
Next, Nina is back with a simply adorable set called Bug Me Anytime. She also has some coordinating digital paper that will be released too. I LOVE it. I used a piece on this card along with the flower image and sentiment:
I layered the flower and added the little leaf sentiment.
