A weekend away

Last weekend I went with my mum and stepdad on their church retreat. I know a lot of the people through them, even though I don't attend the church myself. (Or any, come to that.) It was in Whitby which is by the coast in North Yorkshire. These are a few photos.

Handmade envelopes

I made this envelope from a vintage beer advert calendar that I picked up in Paperchase on sale. This envelope went to my friend Chloe. Isn't it immensely tacky?

This was a lovely letter from Bianca. Feel free to write to me, by the way ;)

Made from a comic calendar, I love these envelopes so much. I believe this one went to Lauren in Florida.

Journal page

Page that went into my art journal. It was done on old sheet music, gessoed and then stamped with the heart stamp. Then I cut out the heart image and the small foil heart. I stamped the words, covered with embossing powder and heated with the heat gun. This crinkled the foil heart somewhat, but I think it adds to it :) When I stuck this in my journal, I painted grey around the edges. The colours aren't great in this photo, sorry.

Stationery swap

This was what I received in the stationery swap that Megan held. My stuff came all the way from Pip in Australia. I love it all, it's all so colourful and sweet :)

On the day that this arrived from Pip, I got so much mail it was amazing. This is what I got:

A very good mail day!

Glimpse of a paper journal

I kind of spilt wax on my last paper journal

I think it sort of adds to the effect, though.

I've been paper journalling for about four years now, and I wouldn't swap it for the world :)
