Floral grid journal - Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the weekly Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! 

During the month of May we have been sharing some sneak peek products with you. The wait is almost over! Starting June 2, 2015 customers will be able to shop the new 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue. That means YOU can get your hands on these fun new toys next week! 

I created this grid journal recently for our trip to Hawaii. We flew to Waikiki for the Stampin' Up! grand vacation a few weeks ago. This little journal was perfect to write down all of the wonderful family memories we made ... except one problem.

This is the journal that I brought home! Oops! In my defense I get my daughter to journal each day. So my new plan is that I will read hers and make mine up as I go. You win some you loose some I guess! 

I tied the new Mint Macaroon ribbon around the album and tied it in a simple knot. Multiple pieces of Linen Thread were tied together around the ribbon in a bow. The tails were curled with a Bone Folder (think of it like curling ribbon).

I thread a number of Whisper White Buttons on a piece of Linen Thread and tied a knot to hold in place. They are so sweet dangling from the thread.

The flower was stamped with the You've Got This Stamp Set. Use the Stampin' Buddy to pat the book cover. Stamp the flower in Versa Mark and cover with White Embossing Powder. Heat set with your Heat Tool and use a Kleenex to wipe away the Stampin' Buddy powder. I used Blender Pens to watercolor the flower in Crisp Cantaloupe and Pear Pizzaz.

You have to know that these grid journals are on SALE!!! They have been added to the weekly deals from May 26 - June 1, 2015!!! Canadian followers can shop my store 24/7!

Next on the blog hop is the beautiful Lisa Harlow.
