Yarned and Dangerous!

Hello everyone and welcome to my quiet little corner.
I say quiet because I just got home from taking my sweet Blake back home to his Mommy and Daddy! It's going to take me while to get used to the quiet around here after having him with us for the last few days. He was a sweetheart for his entire visit and a joy to have with us! I'm going to plan on getting him again in the very near future.  But, for now, it's time to get back to the "Craft Corner" portion of this blog...

Last week I made a journal for my Mama (you can see it here) when I visited her at my Aunt's house. While I was at it, I went ahead and made one for my Aunt...after all, she did put me and my hubby up for the night! My Mama and my Aunt are two seriously crafty ladies and I created these journals with that theme in mind.  Here is the journal I made for Aunt Peggy...

Cute, huh?
*For this journal, I started out with 6 X 6 inch chipboard.
*I inked up the edges with with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and covered the the chipboard in this cute paper by Cosmo Cricket (Double Deck - Material Girl/Garden Variety).
*I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border along the side.
*The yarn is from Cricut's Country Life and is cut at 4.5 inches.

*After putting together the layers of my image, I used Glossy Accents on the knitting needles.

And how PERFECT is this stamp?
*Sentiment is from the Material Girl stamp set by Pink By Design.
*Pearls are Liquid Pearls in "Buttercup".

Here is a look at the back of my journal....

And here are the two for Mama and one for Aunt Peggy...

In case you are interested, I do have a tutorial for putting together the larger journal over at 
Pink By Design.  The post is called Hem Your Blessings and you can see it here.

 Well, I think I'm about ready to call it a night. I'm going to go let "Calgon take me away" for awhile and just relax.  If all goes according to plan, I'll be back in my Craft Corner tomorrow working on some projects to share with you over the next few day...see ya soon!

Until next time,
