Reach For the Stars

If you've received your new Verve Visual stamp sets and are looking for ideas for them, be sure and check out the Verve Visual blog! Starting today, the Design Team will be posting more wonderful creations.

Here is a little gift journal I made using the Starlight Starbright set. I added a shaker to the cover using star sequins and jewels. My Bind It All made this a very quick, easy project! I started with 4x4 coasters and covered them with the Echo paper from Memory Box. I stamped stars and swirls on the cover as well as inside the shaker. I cut 3.5x3.5 pieces of cardstock and rounded the corners for the inside pages. Once the book was all assembled, the finishing touches were the ribbons on the binding and the sentiment on the front. I had intended to give this as a gift, but I'm thinking now I might keep it! LOL Of course, I could always make more since the most time consuming part of this project was the shaker! Hope you like the journal idea. Thanks for stopping by today! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Starlight Starbright (Verve Visual); Ink- Thatched Straw, Purple Hydrangea (VersaMagic), Craft White, Basic Black (SU); Paper- Echo (Memory Box), Black, purple (DCWV); Accessories- ribbons (May Arts, Darice), star sequins, jewels (Joann), large oval punch (SU).
