Sneak Peek Frameabilities WINNER and an Altered Journal

Doing the Spellbinders blog Sneak Peek was so much fun and I want to say "Thank You so much for visiting my blog, entering the contest and all of the wonderful comments". I love working with Spellbinder products and being on their Design Team!! If you are new to Spellbinders products or if you have been using them since the beginning, I hope you are finding lots of inspiration in all of the sneak peeks!!

I am happy to announce June Susmarski is the lucky WINNER of my blog Sneak Peek!! June will receive the new Frameabilities "Decorative Frames" die (S5-005) that was featured in my blog Sneak Peek. CONGRATULATIONS JUNE!!!!

Today's Sneak Peek is over at Michelle Klomp's blog Caffeinated Thoughts. Michelle did a great tutorial so be sure to hop on over there and check it out! Also if you missed the Sneak Peek yesterday you can see it on Ellen Hutson's blog Simple Dreams.

I wanted to share with you an altered journal that I recently made for a gift. I love to alter journals! They make wonderful personalized gifts. I happened to find this journal at Michale's in the $ bins but you wouldn't know that to look at it now.
I started by removing the front and back cover. I used designer paper from Fancy Pants to cover the front and back covers of the journal. Then with Coffee Bean Brilliance ink I stamped the flourish images from Fancy Pants, Bella Brush stamp set. Using the same ink I also inked the edges of the covers. The journal already had a circle cutout in it so I added a family picture. The sentiment was printed out with the computer, then I cut out and oval and a scalloped oval for a matting using the Classic & Scallop Oval Nestabilities (S4-110, S4-111) by Spellbinders. The shells were made using the Shells die (S4-016) from Spellbinders. I cut, embossed and stenciled each of the shells. The stenciling was done using the Copic sketch markers and the Copic ABS. I used Zip Dry adhesive from Beacon to adhere all of the pieces as shown in the picture and then I added a yummy chocolate satin brown ribbon.

Thank you so much for stopping by & I hope you have enjoyed today's post!! Congratulations again to June Susmarski!!!
I hope you all had a Happy and safe 4th of July!!
