2011 Gratitude Journal

Weel seeinga s we are nearly 2 weeks into the new year and Australia, particularly Western Australia and Queensland, are in disarray I htought I'd share my gratitude Journal.
Thank you Monika for the inspiration.
You may have seen the sneaks that I had up a while back. But here is the  full reveal

 I have used Cosmo Crickets Circa 1034 pp's. Added my own crocheted elements, made a water distressed flower with a Kaiser pear brad in the center. Alphas a glittered Making Memories and numbers are Kaiser.
I still need to find some ribbons to dress up the jump rings.

 Here I have used various stamps to make journalling spots

 I have used a couple of different ledger papers from Cosmo (Joy ride and Tpgetherness) and have cut up the journalling paper from Circa 1934

 I took advantage of this red graph print paper from Circa 1934 and doodled jouranlling blocks
 Here I have used the ledger aper, journalling block paper and stickers from Cosmo

 Lots of journalling blocks and stickers. Even found some October Afternoon stickers that matched in perfectly

I stamped some journalling spots onto Kraft and cut them out too.

All the tabs were hand cut using the diecuts from Kasier as a template. I now have a puch to do it all Yay!!!!!! I have used the black and cream Cosmo Cricket tiny type alphas to label the months.

Take Care


  1. Wow, this is amazing! The patterned papers, cardstock and kraft are all perfect complements to each other. I adore all the journaling spots and I think when you make it cute, it makes the project more do-able, don't you? And we always make cute stuff for other people, so why not for ourselves, too?

  2. Looks great. A super idea. Love your version of it!

  3. I loved making this. Although making enough journalling spots did become a bit of a chore in the end, but I just love looking at it.
    Absolutely Monika, there is no reason why we can't make pretty things for ourselves. Have made a few things lately, will be sharing them in he next few days

  4. beautiful work :) you are very talented!
