Hi everyone, Tamara here with a fun and easy little folio project, perfect for holding your Traveller’s Notebook style journals.
I used my favourite Little Birdie 12in X 12in paper pad and a few other products to get the perfect matching set.
I love the message of this paper pad, it’s perfect for any young lady who likes to keep a journal.
This fun folio has lots of pockets and it holds not one, but two traveller’s notebook style journals that can be taken out and used on their own.
I used my laminating machine on the notebook covers, the pockets, and some of the elements to add durability and shine. Watch the video below to see how pretty the single sided lamination technique really looks and how it easy it is to take the notebooks out and replace them!
Today I have for you a brightly colored Father’s Day card. I’ve incorporated a chalk paint background that I made on a Gelli Plate to coordinate with the sticker I used from Little Birdie Crafts.
So to start, I applied the chalk paint directly to my Gelli Plate in the colors of Salsa Red and Orange Splash. I did use a little acrylic paint in bright yellow as well. I then swiped my texture tool over the paint I rolled on the plate and pulled my print to come up with the design you see here.
After the chalk paint dried, I used a sponge dauber to add some dots of the Silver Charm Shimmer paint to my project for some added shine since this was a card to celebrate someone special.
I made a quick banner with my scissors and added a greeting in navy ink from the stamp set Loads of Wishes. After adding my sticker, I finished up with some Pearl Drops in Tangelo Citrus and a combination of Aqua Drop/Jade Isle. I like to mix drop colors if I need a particular hue that Little Birdie doesn’t have. I think I was able to get closer to the blue on my card base and the collar/dots in the shirt sticker.
I hope you enjoy this bright and colorful card I created to celebrate Father’s Day. I thought it was a fun way to incorporate these adorable stickers 🙂 Enjoy! ~Adrienne
