My Bullet Journal for 2019

My goodness father time slow down! Where did February, March, April go!? My father in law passed away at the end of February and it's just been a real big blur! I miss him. It's crazy to think that when I go to his house he wont be there. I sit on his favorite couch every time I am there. It just has not fully registered yet!

So today I wanted to celebrate spring because he would want me to. So I doodled in my bullet journal and here I am sharing it. I started this bullet journal in January. It's from Micheal's and I paid a whooping $5 dollars! That's it.

I will journal in it. I will keep track of my pens (that's another post) and my ink pads. I don't open it everyday but I do keep it in my bag of goodies that I carry with me to work :)

If I am a meeting or a class I pull it out and write notes.

Let me show you some pictures from my bullet journal....   it's really just me brain dumping in a journal. It gives me peace. I find cutting and pasting make me happy even if I only do it for 15 minutes a day! You should try it!! Here we go...

Happy crafting babes!

Sucker For Love! Papercakes digital designs turned into iron ons!


Sucker For Love!



Hey babes! Jossie here showing you how I made this super cute embellie bag. I absolutely love Papercakes digital format of Love Bites. I wanted to try something a little different with the digitals so I printed them on iron on transfer paper.






I know it sounds tricky if you have not worked with transfer paper but I promise it’s easy! Here we go!



Print you digitals on iron on transfer paper.







Gather all your supplies and cut out the images you want to use.

  

Once you select your image place it in the position you wish.

Make sure to read the direction sheet according to the transfer paper you buy. My transfer paper came with a sheet of wax paper that I placed over my image before I ironed it on.







    



Once you have ironed over your image check to see if image is sticking to your item. You don’t want to burn the image. Be sure to keep checking as you are ironing.



As you pull up the wax paper your image no longer lifts and it is now complete.



You are ready to enjoy your personalized item!



Here’s mine!



Easy peasy right! I love love the way it turned out.  Be sure to check more from Papercakes  Try it. I would love to see what you make!



Thanks!
