Altered Journal

Yippee!! It's my turn again to be the poster on the Pinque Peacock Blog!  I did have to clear off a spot on my desk in order to alter my journal, but I did get it done, but made another mess in the process though.

My craft table and desk as it looks right now, although today I will hopefully get time to tackle my mess!!

This is just a corner of the 6 ft. table

Aftermath on my desk and yes, there's even 'stuff' under the desk!!

My favorite thing to do is alter anything and everything in sight, but journals and mini-albums are my very favorite.  This is a pretty simple altered journal because time wasn't on my side.

I used one of my favorite Fabric Covered Buttons and Angel Stick Pin from Pinque Peacock.  The paper I used was from the Stampin' Up Clementine collection.   The brown ribbon is also Stampin' Up.  Not sure where I got the lace and the bling, pulled it out of my stash!  The papers aren't showing up their true colors, not sure why though.  lol  I love burlap and just love the burlap flower from Canvas Corp.

Here is a close-up of the Fabric Covered Button and Stick Pin.

Here is the altered journal, can't wait to fill it up with ideas!   I did add mini crystal randomly to the centers of  the printed paper on the right, but they're not showing up in the photo.


  1. Susie your craft room looks like mine!If I clean it I won't know where anything is! Beautiful album and I love the colors and of course the PP stick pin and button. Hugs~Mary

  2. Susie, you craft room sure reminds me a lot of my own area! I am sometimes crafting right on top of other projects or materials! ADORABLE little altered notebook!
