When looking at the entire Handmade by Heidi collection I can’t pick one kit that is better than the other. Every kit is over the top amazing! I couldn’t help but want to open and use them all at once! A favorite is the Floral Journal Kit. You can see it in this video Heidi shared here.
My father was in the military and every time we moved, my mom would remind me that we couldn’t bring everything with us. Loose magazines were not allowed to move with us. However, scrapbooks could. I started collage scrapbooking when I was in high school. I would cut up magazines and create collages so that I could re-purpose magazines. Some photos were so inspiring, I would just create collages for fun. I still have some of those scrapbook albums filled with newspaper clippings, magazine images, and teenage memorabilia.
I guess that’s why not so long ago, I use to create inspirational journals and they were filled with collages of photos, quotes, and embellishments that inspired me. There was no special formula to create the pages – they were just fun! I decided that I would use the Floral Journal to create one just like those I use to make.
This journal kit comes with the floral journal with grid pages and pink inside binding, heart paper clips, 12 2×2 cards, and 90 stickers. [The other items shown above come from other kits in the Handmade by Heidi collection.]
To start each double page spread, I found images and pattern papers that matched. Then, I decorated the pages with coordinating colors.
There is an ink in every color in the glass pen Handwriting Kits, so I matched the ink to the pages and added my own quotes to each page.
Plus, the Washi Tape Kit had a matching tape for every page!
I love the pink pattern down the middle of each page! But it is the width of washi tape, so if I want to change the look – I just added my own washi!
Bold and bright colors are also in the cards included in the kit as well as in the Washi Tape Kit! These collage pages inspire me!
I have fun mixing and matching colors and images that make me happy! There are no rules – I just have fun gluing.
Hopefully this inspires you to fall for the Floral Journal Kit. Whether you use it as a traditional journal or something unique like I have, I know you will love it!
