Journal Pages

(click on images to enlarge)
Last week my Mum posted on her Stamping for joy blog about a new journal she is creating. She is sending a set of two pages to a few of her fellow crafters to fill in a little about how they began their journey in to crafting and maybe a tip or some advice to share.

She also sent two pages to me which I was more than happy to work on for her.

I decided to use my most favourite designer series paper, Bella Rose from Stampin Up.

On the first page I have put a photo of one of my most favouite creations using the Bella Rose paper.

You can view this Designer Handbag Gift Set in a previous post here.

On this second page I have made an envelope using the Bella Rose DSP.

My journalling outlined how I began crafting after a discussion with my friend Jill about how we could earn an income with out having to put our young children in to care and go out and get a job. This was how our business JeMbellish was born. 

My tip to other crafters was to not be afraid of using the "really good" paper. Cut it, tear it, fold it, what ever, just don't stash it away thinking it is too good to use. Of course once I had finished I discovered the spelling error in the journalling!

My Mum will be posting the other pages of her journal on her blog as she receives them back.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Beautiful pages! I love the journalling in the gorgeous envelope, and that paper is just stunning!
