Coffee-themed Gratitude Journal (2 of 6)

Hi, everyone!  I mentioned in my previous post that I made my first journal! It is a coffee-themed gratitude journal in fall colours!  I made it back in August for a crafty friend, and I'm sharing it now as part of the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop.

There are a lot of photos of my journal so I'm sharing a couple pages at a time.  In this post, I am showing the inside front cover.  Stay tuned for more journal pages in my next blog post!

On the inside front cover, I made a pocket to hold several journal cards (described in detail below) and added a strip of washi tape along the spine. The large scalloped border is from Spellbinders.  The coffee girl and coffee cup are from Krafting on the Download - Coffee Girl Chic.  On page 1, I used word art/sentiment from Gloria Stengel Designs.  I decorated it with a strip of coffee-themed washi tape and backed it with a die-cut doily.  The patterned paper is from my old stash (Carson Dellosa).  

The above photo shows the journal cards that were tucked in the pocket.  For the first one, I used word art from Create with TLC, changed the colour, and layered it digitally onto a journal card from Raspberry Road Designs - Pumpkin Spice. I did the same with the second journal card using word art from Create with TLC and a journal card from Raspberry Road Designs - Coffee Break.  The third journal card is from Raspberry Road Designs - Pumpkin Spice (unaltered), and the fourth is from Mein Lila Park, with added word art from Create with TLC.

I would also like to support the following challenge:

Thank you for looking at my project!  Stay tuned for more pages of my journal! Wishing you a joyful day!
