German Cuts Horse Journal

Good Morning Ladies,
It is a little chilly this morning. But you won't hear me complaining. I love sweatshirt weather.
Tomorrow I am off to a craft day with friends. Should be a fun day!
I am entering this in the http://joanstouch.blogspot.com/2014/07/challenge-vacation-card.html
I have something different for you today. It is a German Cuts Horse Journal
 The journal base is a composition book. These can be easily found this time of year in the school supply section at any store. The background paper is from Graphics 45. It is from my old stash and was a collection from 2009. The embossed German cut is matted with dark brown cardstock. The tag was inked in brown cat's eye colorbox ink. The corners are thin molding. My friend brought these to me last summer along with other pieces that are similar. They are wood. I stained them with Tim Holtz gold stain in the bottle with the dauber top. You can purchase this stain at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/ It worked wonderfully to stain these pieces. Check out the bottom photo to see the ribbon on the binding that creates a bookmark. This journal was inspired by the German cut.

Happy Scraps,
