Here's what I started with:
Since it was for my son, I decided to use a collection that looks rather masculine. So, I decided on the Vacation Pyramid Pad. It's masculine textures and distressed look made it perfect for the job!
As I was working, I needed the right size and color sticker. These large, glitter alphas were perfect, but a little too bright. So, just a few dabs of a black ink pad toned them down just enough!
Here's a before and after photo of the stickers... well, technically it's "after" THEN "before," but you get the idea!
And, here's what I ended up with! He's so excited to journal about this summer's adventures!
Here is the back! Isn't this collection just perfect for an adventurous guy?!
This is the inside. I covered the pen in paper so it would match and even created a pocket to hold ticket stubs and other mementos of the summer!
And, of course, not my daughter wants ANOTHER journal because "his is cooler than hers"!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired to make a fantastic summer journal for your kids-- or even yourself! Have fun!
