Rhonda here today to share with you a Traveler's Journal that I created using the new 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 my 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. 

A big thank you to our friends over at Joy Clair for their wonderful stamps! It's been a pleasure working with them!!!

Hello Quick Quotes and Joy Clair fans, June here today. Have you been enjoying all the great projects so far this week?

I have a fun card using several PowderPuff Chalking Inks and Joy Clair's Spring Time Flowers stamp set. These products were made to go together.

Quick Quotes Serenade Papers and PowderPuff Chalk Inks with Joy Clair Stamps Card designed by June Swart

I started by creating an ombre look by blending Quick Quotes' Green Leaf, Seafoam, Bora Bora, Sky Blue and Baby Blue PowderPuff Chalking inks then splattering watered down white acrylic paint. These inks blend so effortlessly.

The pretty Joy Clair dandelions were stamped and heat embossed with clear powder. I used a black pen to extend the stem and added a clear gem. I love the delicate look of these stamps and all the movement! Can't you just feel the breeze?

The diecut sentiment was cut 3 times, stacked and Glossy Accents was added. Lastly, the card was matted on Quick Quotes new Serenade 102, and gold thread was wrapped around the bottom.

Beautiful journal and card! I love the mixed media journal cover and the colors! Lovely stamp from Spring Time Flowers for the card, and beautifully colored background!

Rhonda's cover with the pinks and blues
is beautiful. Love the butterfly and
the bird embellishment. June's puffball
disintegrating is a fun card. Don't see
much of that around here - they're
considered weeds so they get sprayed
away.
It's been a great week. Lots of
wonderful ideas.
thanks for sharing.
