Hiya peeps,

Just to share some pics of the journals made today in a craft class with two wonderful young guys… They enjoyed the session, I hope they do! πŸ™‚ totally made my day. πŸ˜€

We started by choosing covers… They love the grungy papers by Tim Holtz and both selected the world map page, Bishman decided to do the 8 X 8 inch size journal and Rohan decided a smaller one 5X5inch. From there, we started the paper cutting and preparing for the whole punching and operating the zutter. They made the covers and finally putting everything together.

Then comes the stamping… they wanted some personalisation…. so I had this brand new Gypsies stamps that are just perfect for them… The chose all the phrases that they had wanted, stamped it with different colours and unto the journal. We also learn the phrase of day… ” there is really no real mistake in art ”

So here are the pics.. They are both such wonderful, creative and intelligent boys, and have enjoyed very much working with them to make their very own, only in the world journals.

Heart you guys.. I enjoy the crafting time with you.. {heart}

Cheers… xxx

  1. It’s was a fantastic session Annie. You are a gifted teacher, Annie. The boys treasure their journals and carry it around with them everywhere…. even to bed.

    Thanks for the wonderful experience Annie.

    Cheers,
    Suresh
