This is the card I made to slip inside the clear cover of a Close To My Heart My Creations Journal. This is the first time I have purchsed this product and I love it! This is a gift for my oldest son. He writes in a journal regularly and I hope he likes the sentiment as well. Below is a photo of the blank journal. Not much to really see. The cover is a clear pocket attached to very sturdy white chipboard. It also has a white back cover . The wire binding is nice and roomy allowing the pages to turn very easily.
This is the finished journal. The paper is from the new set called Elemental. I think this is a great set becasue it could be either for guys or girls depending on how you use it. The sentiment is from a stamp set I recieved at Convention. When I saw it I thought of my son.
After I finished this I realized I could have used the new cricut cardridge to make some fancy shapes instead of all rectangles. The good news is that the cover has the clear sheet on the front. All I need to do is slip out the plain one and insert a fancy one! I just might do that.
This would make a great birthday present for a tween or teen. If you have a young girl who likes to make cafty things she could even make the covers and give them to her friends for Christmas, birthdays or just for fun.
