I Did It! I Did It!

I did a bloody Bella card ... [oops! that's not a very nice word in the UK, is it? I apologize!] Had to remind myself I am 'tenacious' -- not a quitter, albeit possibly a whiner as I go. Then I had to go do a journal page, getting myself re-centered. Must have symbols: ocean (shells), mermaid, Paris (fleur de lis), open window or door.

This journal page is awesome! Why is it called a journal page? Is it a visual representation of you thoughts and feelings? BTW, what's a woose?

Hey Toni, so glad your still here, I did leave a comment on your post, I hope you've had chance to read it. The stamps I have been using lately are Magnolia and Sugar Nellie both you can purchase from www.funkykits.co.uk. For a wider variety of Magnolias try www.sirstampalot.co.uk. There are links on my sidebar for other sites ie magnoliachallenge.blogspot.com for inspiration. Hope this helps. Love what you have done with your Bella image, I haven't got any of these (yet).

Wow!!! You made one of the most precious Bella cards I've seen in a while...love everything about it and your journal page, saying this as I pick my jaw off the floor, just amazing!!!

So to your question about paper piecing - basically is when you stamp an image on different card stocks or designer paper, cut out certain parts of the image and assembled them all onto one main image. Does that make sense? So for the heart on my card - I stamped it three times on different papers and then cut out certain parts of them and attached it on top of one main heart image.

Geesh, hope I didn't confuse you more...

Hugs!
