Monthly Journal Album Book by Cheri Piles using "Hello My Name Is" collection

Hey everyone, Today I wanted to share this fun journal book! On the cover of this pre-made chipboard album I stamped along the top and bottom using the damask stamp and just repeating it. Using the new Basically Essential Modeling Paste and alpha stencil I created the words "GOALS, DREAMS" The "&" is a the new Decorative Wood Pieces and I just colored it with ink to make it black. I layered the red and black sequins in the center of the damask stamped borders, added the chipboard "journal" sticker. The red word strips are from the 6 x 6 paper pad and I cut the page apart using the words in my book. 

Each of the months I cut out from the months paper in the 6x6 paper pad, then I added words into each of the open spaces on them using the new Basically Essential Alpha's. You will be shocked how many words you can create from just one sheet (there are 6 sheets per package!!) On this page I used one of the new tags from the package of Basically Essential envelope and tag package. I have loved playing with the new modeling paste and here you can see I only covered part of the tag then I stamped on it. The typewriters on the top of the tag is one of the four rolls of washi tape

I created all of my non chipboard pages with white cardstock then cut apart the 6x6 paper pad into 4x6 sheets. All of the red word strips in this book are from one of the sheets of the paper pad - it really gives the book some POP and is so inspirational and quite perfect for my journal book! I also added the new "TAGS" throughout the book. I love that there are places to journal but are also quite decorative too!

This is another chipboard page that is just decorative. I loved the stamped border and quotes!

I layered the sticker quote right over the top of the journal tag, it makes it look like the "This is me" is a separate piece but it's part of the tag.

I love LOTS of layers!!

You might not consider this but it's going to be ok with me to write all over the "LUCKY" card, you will still see it when I journal over it in black ink. 

I loved playing with the new library card - it comes in the "envelope and tag package". I added the vine stencil and modeling paste image to the front.

The "life" is another tag. I am LOVING them, can you tell??

This is probably my MOST FAVORITE!!! I love the STAMP and matching STENCIL on the tag together. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the look of it!!

One thing I love about using the modeling paste and stencils is that there really are not RULES, just play with them and use as little or much as you want!!

I love this circle tag - I think I'm just going to write one word in each of the circles!

And last but not least - a good quote. I LOVED being so inspired to create this journal album. I hope you have been inspired to create one too!!
