SIP Challenge #88 – Anything But A Card

Leave a comment

Good morning! After such a beautiful week of warm weather last week the cold is back. One positive to that is staying indoors and what better way to occupy your time than crafting! 

I would like to share our new challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper this week.  This challenge is Anything But A Card

Last week 2 of my nieces, 11 and 13, were in a horrific accident. They were sitting in my moms car in her driveway listening to the radio, which they do frequently, and were hit head on by a drunk driver who lost control of her truck and went crashing through the front yard and landed head on into the car. One of girls had to be air lifted from the scene. We are so thankful that the girls made it through this. So for my project this week I made them each a journal that they can use to write in daily.

Here is the cover of one of them. I still need to add titles to the fronts. I created the front and back covers with chipboard covered with paper. Each journal has 11 signatures. 

To bind the signatures to the covers I used waxed linen thread and the Coptic stitching method. 

As the girls are still very traumatized as to why this all happened I hope these journals will help them put their thoughts down on paper and begin to heal from this all. 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. 

Until next time 

Happy Crafting
