Hello! I made a mini journal for my husband's god daughter, Isabella for Easter. I just realized I forgot to blog about it. There are quite a few pictures with this one :-) I used a great new paper stack by The Paper Studio called Ooh-La-La! Love it! Hope you enjoy!
Inside cover. I created a pocket and then a chipboard double-heart, covered with paper, and attached with a ribbon that she can tuck in the pocket or use as a bookmark.
