Today I wanted to show you guys a little project I did using the PopFizzPaper Journalling cards from the January kit. I am not much of a journaler but I loved the colors and idea of these cards so much, I had to use them! Flipbooks have been making their way around the planning community lately and I am intrigued and thought I would try my first hand at one to showcase some 2016 goals, date night ideas and even a little journalling section.
Let's get started by grabbing our materials.
The first step is to lay out your card and bind them together with some washi. This will make them bound sort of like a book. I did it on both sides and left the washi ripped to add a little dimension.
Using some washi and other elements I had in my collection, I created a cover that sort of shows that it is for 2016. Added a "Carpe That Diem" sticker to the cover to show this year means business!
For the inside page, the "goals" pocket, I created a pocket using some of the journalling card and ripping it, adding some chalk ink to the ends for an extra touch. I created a pull card using another journalling card and some washi. Blocking off parts of the stamp with some washi, I inked hearts along the side to show "bullet" points. This can be used to write down your 2016 goals.
The second inside page I made another pocket, added a die cut that says "keeper" and printed out some date ideas, sliding them right in! Now, when you're out of ideas, just pull one out and give it a go!
Now we're getting further into our flipbook and the next 2 pages. Again, making a little pocket with some journalling card and chalk, I slipped in some PopFizzPaper stickers and a little note, explaining what this flipbook was all about and sealed the note with some cute PFP icons! I also created a little "clips" card attaching some shaped paper clips onto some journalling cards.
The next and last 2 pages are meant to be more interactive. Using the "meet cute" die cut, I created a little pocket with the intention of printing out a cute picture sometime in the year 2016, maybe even on one of those dates. Added a #smile sticker because why not? (I slipped some floral die cuts in there to fill the void for the moment).
On the next side I attached note paper a die cut but layered it with a date die cut so that the recipient can write a little bit about their day, possibly the date with the photo!
And there we have it. A different approach by a non journaler using the journalling cards. I hope this post gave you a little bit of inspiration. The items in your kits are multipurpose, sit down and see what you can come up with!
