Masking Tape Journal

Gingersnap Creations     GC138: Spicy Supply Challenge-Masking Tape

This month I won't be entering the challenges at Gingersnap Creations because I get to represent Rogue Redhead Designs as a Guest Designer. Hopefully to give all you artists who want to enter the challenge some inspiration.
I chose to go with the Masking Tape Backgrond Technique, I found the instructions on Splitcoast Stampers . Instead of making a card this time the Just Sayin' sentiment from the new Just Sayin' stamp set at Rogue Redhead Designs inspired me to come up with this little journal.
I'm also really into using empty cereal and cracker boxes for my chip board. I cut 2 pieces 4" X 5" and rounded the corners on the right end. The left end I measured in 3/4" and scored. I covered the inside back and front with designer paper, then I did the Masking Tape Technique, set the eyelets front and back, roughed up and sponged the edges of the inside pages, tied it all together, stamped the Tim Holtz ticket, and attached the hearts.  
Hope to see a bunch of you playing this month over at Gingersnap Creations.

Happy Creating--
Beverly G ♥
