Circle Journaling

First day of Fall! First day of Fall! First day of Fall!

WOO HOO! You know what that means...Too much sugar, too much commercialism and too much turkey...I am so ready for this!!!!

*deep breath*

Anyhoo, more of my work with the Gauche Alchemy "Hot For Teacher" kit can be seen on their blog but here it is, live and in person for your viewing pleasure. :P This time I used their fabulous kit to dress up the sign in pages for my Gauche Alchemy Circle Journal...uh...journal:

First the left side:



Every so often, I love using masking tape on my projects...



And the right side where everyone will put their sign in tags:



I made the pocket using packaging from cardstock, covered it in some grading paper from the kit and I then attached it to the page using masking tape. :)



By the way, if you check out the Gauche Alchemy store you'll see tons of newly added materials for you to get your art on! Tons of cardboard, paint, beeswax and Distress Inks. Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments and support during my guest spot at Gauche Alchemy, it's so appreciated! Have a great day everyone!

This is great! I love the layouts. The tape reminds me of my mom's old high school scrapbooks, too.
