Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - Journal Cards

Hi, everyone. This week at Frosted Designs, we are challenging you to use Journal Cards for your projects. You must use one or more journal cards in your cards, layouts, altered arts, off the page projects etc.

*Note: If you are dropping by for My Little Shoebox & Unity Stamp Co Blog Hop, please scroll down to the previous post. Have fun hopping.*

For this challenge, I made a mini album out of the journalling cards to document my recent family picnic.

"Botanic Garden" Mini Album

I adhered 3 sides of the journalling cards to make a pocket for tags. The tags serve as more journalling spots and for more photos. Also added file tabs to the opening of the pockets. I love the Studio Calico wood veneers!!!

Don't you just love the camera wood veneer by Studio Calico??  I doodle the side of the photos to frame them.

The journalling cards are just the perfect size for just photos and journalling. You do not need to add a lot of  embellishments to jazz them up.

I added tiny polymer clay shapes to this page. Love the polymer clay fruits!!! My friend helped me to get these polymer clay candies that you can cut to your desired size.

More polymer clay shapes here. Love the strawberries!!

My brother and "soon to be" future sister-in-law!! (Brother, can you sense the "hinting"?? ha ha)

I love this photo!! My youngest brother, Austin came up with the funniest scene!!! "Illegal hawkers" in Botanic Garden!!!! He prepared the "props", the sunglasses, the fan and the towel!!! So cute!!

My lovely sister who brought the 3 fans to the picnic!!! Hence the "Fan Queen"!!! Wa ha ha ha...

Another funny photo of my brother, nephew and my daughter (in the background). Seems like the "boys" in my family have the "funny and mischievous" traits!!!

An example of the tags inside the pockets. I used the "Smash" tape for this and also doodle the frames. 

I hope you are inspired by this project. Do hop over to Frosted Designs to join in the challenge. And also scroll down to my previous post to join in My Little Shoebox and Unity Stamp Co Blog Hop. Have a fun weekend.
