Closer look: Little Angel Journal

Hello!  Sorry this is so late in the day, I've been keeping busy for most of the evening finishing up a swap!

Here is a more detailed look at my first project from the Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini blog hop.  First, the picture you have already seen, showing the journal and the accompanying card:

The 3 x 3" card would be great for a little note to the recipient, perfectly sized for such a use.  Using the same colors and a stamp from the same stamp set ensures excellent coordination.

Here's a closer look at the journal:

This journal would be perfect as a gift for new parents - what a wonderful way for them to write their thoughts inside and capture those memories that may be soon forgotten.  It could really be used for anything, even as a mini scrapbook for your furbaby. 

The frame in the center was made with the Scallop Edge punch.  You can find great detailed instructions on the Splitcoaststampers website here.  There is enough space for a wallet size photo of the new bundle of joy.  The heart off to the left was daubed with Whisper White Craft ink, and a Pretty in Pink button finishes off the corner.  Faux stitching was added with a Soft Suede Stampin' Write marker along the So Saffron panel.  The rest is pretty self explanatory, but if you have questions, feel free to ask!
