Hi everyone! It’s Tara with Secretbees Studio. Christmas is over and now is the time to start thinking about those New Year's resolutions. One that is always good and productive is keeping a journal but wouldn't it be more fun to keep track of your art journey?!
The new 'Hey Crafty Girl' paper collection from Simple Stories is full of vibrant and fabulous patterned papers and the cutest embellishments for any craft you can think of! I took all of these papers, along with the coordinating Simple Basics paper pack, and made this art journal that is perfect for documenting my crafty endeavors throughout the year!
The front and back covers, which are made from heavy weight chipboard and measure 6.24" x 8.75", feature four different patterns of the gorgeous paper. It was so hard to decide which ones to use! I loaded up the front cover with a combination of chipboard, stickers and Bits & Pieces and layered them over a charming 4x6 element card. I even tied on a sweet tag at the top!
Inside are 30 patterned paper and white card stock pages. Four of them are tabbed dividers which have been highlighted with some fun sentiment stickers to help keep me organized. They, along with all of the other pages, have been decorated with the phenomenally cute embellishments, stamps and stencil of the collection. There are pockets galore, journaling pages and plenty of room for photos or mementos! Below are some of my favorites in the journal!
If you are a crafter of any sort, this dazzling collection is for you! The possibilities to create are endless and the papers and every other adorable piece of this collection will definitely put a smile on your face! I'm so excited for the New Year to start documenting my art journey! If you want to make an art journal of your own, please visit my YouTube channel for a tutorial and look through the entire journal!
