Hi Everyone! I am on a mission to seek out and try the little known items in the Stampin' UP! catalog and found this chunky size Art Journal, 108495. It's a 5" x 5" On Board series jounal that has 20 sheet of Very Vanilla card stock. Love it! (p 191) I've decorated this one for mom. Not necessarily for any occasion other than just because! Of course it would make a super cute easter gift for anyone and NO CALORIES! This project uses lots of Sale-a-bration items. So if you like any of the items seen, there's only a few more weeks of the promotion to get your SAB freebees and exclusive items!

I may have to order a few of these Art Journals. They would be perfect to do a mini album! Since the inside paper is Very Vanilla card stock, that means the paper is sturdy and all ready for 40 pages to embellish or put photos on. OMGoodness so much fun πŸ™‚

I played around with raising the punched letters and adding a butterfly but I preferred the almost melting look the letters had into the paper.
