Love is in The Air

Hi everyone...Today I am sharing a Destination Inspiration post over at A Vintage Journey x Where you can view the project details. 
As its Valentine's Day on Wednesday 14th February I thought I would make a gift for a special person as seen below :
 The wee journal measures 2 1/4 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide 
 The technique for the faux leather journal cover can be found on You Tube
 The inside of the journal was made using card, folded like a fan, then decorated with scrap papers and small heart and stars die cuts.

The other side of the journal pages below
 A personal message  will be recorded at a later stage.
Thank You so much for visiting and I hope you can manage to drop in at A Vintage Journey too for the full details on how this was created.

I would like to enter this project over at Frilly and Funkie blog where the challenge is All You Need is Love, which you can view  by clicking HERE

Over at That's Crafty Challenge this month the theme is I Heart You, where I am also entering my project. Please click HERE to go to the That's Crafty Blog

Over at The Artistic Stamper Team Blog, which you can find HERE the challenge is Roses are Red (use the colour red) I  have entered my project here as I have used a red UTEE heart along with stamping /red hearts and papers inside my wee journal using TH ledger stamps and  a stencil  

Take Care and Happy Crafting
