My 1st Journal entry




These Clairefontaine Journals were provided to our Design Team. Comment on all the Clairefontaine posts throughout the month to get a chance to win a free journal and a $15 coupon to the VLVS! online store!



I have been working with the Creative Imaginations design team.  A big part of this is making ATC cards.  I used my Clairefontaine journal to attempt trying out some of my favorite Viva las Vegastamps! ideas for ATC's.  I did some layout 2 1/2 X 3 1/2 size designs.  I have made myself a clear plastic template to layover the stamps or stamp combinations to see how the look at this smaller size.  I then traced around my template and try different areas to see what I like best.

LOVE these images and what a great idea to make a template for an ATC. I usually just stamp and cut..and THEN find out what it looks like in the smaller format!

Wow these journals look awesome and would be so fun to stamp on and embellish!

Love the Steampunk ATC (w/the face and gears), but all turned out great.

I use a template for my ATCs also and find it helps a lot when chosing different elements.
