Friday greetings to you! Today is day five of the Quick Quotes promotion and giveaway with Joy Clair this week. I am up on the blog
along with June Swart featuring the lovely Joy Clair stamps and of course Quick Quotes products.
Today I have a Traveler's Journal that I created using the new
and gorgeous papers called Serenade, PowderPuff Chalk Inks, Joy Clair stamps and of course some mixed media and a few extra goodies.
For the cover, I am featuring the Uh Oh Ink Splatters stamps by Joy Clair, you can see the larger splatter on the lower left corner using Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink and the petite splatter dots in the upper left.
This set of stamps is so versatile, I just love the extra interest they add here!
For the binding, I adhered some paper doily that I inked with Sky Blue, then Mod Podged to the binding to soften the look of my Journal. I was inspired by Susie Bentz's
idea to use a flair to accent the spine so I found some coordinating ribbon and added a little bow.
To create the lines on my signature page inserts, I used my Canon Pixma iP8720 and Microsoft Word.
- Create a new word document
- Adjusted margins to 8.25 wide x 8.50 high
- Created two columns and tabbed down to type several lines using double spacing in the paragraph.
- Copy and paste the lines in the next column so they are even.
- Changed color of underline to a coordinating ink color for my paper. Here I used a blue.
- Print and repeat for any additional signature pages you wish to have some journaling lines on.
Create word document and sized to 8.25 wide x 8.50 high.
Verify your margins and adjust as needed. I made mine .75
Orientation is Portrait.
Inserted two columns, format spacing to double space.
Type in your lines as desired.
When completed, print your document.
For this printer, place paper right side up, adjust the paper guides to fit your custom paper size.
Final result. I like to mark my measurements lightly on the page and erase when done so I don't get confused with orientation. Once I had my signature pages with lines created, I added additional stamping and interest using my PowderPuff Chalk Inks and my Joy Clair stamps.
