For the Love of Dog

Anyone who knows me knows I'm crazy about dogs - mine in particular, but I just love dogs in general.  Jackie Peters taught a cute dog journal class recently at Paper Crown, so of course I HAD to sign up.  The journal is made from a file folder with a mini-binder insert.  Jackie had lots of cute vintage dog images for us to use, along with dog-related quotes, pretty papers and ribbons.  I also won a door prize during the class - a cute little beach-themed journal.  Here are my two books.

For the dog journal, we stamped the inside of the folder, added a pocket, then vintage images, quotes and washi tape.  We then added the binder and decorated our pages.

I used vintage images on the front of my pages, and pics of my babies on the backs.
I've added a couple of pages since the class and plan to add a few more.  Yet another fun Jackie project!

I've been collecting a bag of beach-themed vintage photos and ephemera for a while, but didn't have any particular ideas for a cover.  The little beach journal I won will be perfect.  It has blank pages ready to embellish.  I've made a few additions already, and will use the photos and papers from my stash to finish it up.  Here are a couple of things I've added so far.
I'll be posting soon about the last round of the Paper Cowgirl's Summer Travel Postcard Swap, and also Creative Wings Boutique's Prize Ribbon Swap.  Hope you'll check back to see!
