Gratitude Journal


I wrote in my November Newsletter about the idea of creating a Gratitude Journal. The picture above is the cover of the journal I created for myself. I love the Blue Bayou Prints Designer Series Paper, so that's what I used to cover my On Board Art Journal.

The paper fits perfectly in the spiral binding, thanks to the use of the Spiral Punch. You'll notice the little words all over the cover, like 'dream', 'wish', 'hope', and 'imagine' (from the set Everyday Flexible Phrases). That's because, along with what I'm grateful for, I like to visualize the prosperity and abundance I want in my life! So, my journal is also a place where I can DREAM BIG.

I very much like simple things, but this is a special journal so I wanted it to be eye-catching. The Photo Corners Punch, Ice Circle Rhinestone Brads, and specialty ribbon did the trick quite nicely, as you can see in detail below.
