Design Team Challenge: Hidden Journaling

Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway!  This week's theme at Sweet Sassy Diva's is Hidden Journaling.  I love hiding journaling on my page so I can fit more pictures!!

I received this Christmas card from my Aunt Chris and just LOVED it!  My first thought was this could be a title for a layout!

I grabbed some papers from this paper pad.

These papers were my favorite for this project.

I lined the card with the green paper and then white cardstock to give me space for my journaling. 

I used Winter Frolic and gold cardstock for my embellishments.  I welded 3 ornament borders (top) sized to 2.14 inches and (bottom) 1.80 inches.  I cut out the Phrase Making Spirits Bright at 2.24 inches.  I cut out the tag at 3 inches and the ornament balls at 2.88 and 3.12 inches.

Here are my cuts.

I needed another picture here and really liked this photo of me, but not the red bow on my head!

So I covered it up with this ornament border!

I trimmed the bottom of the green page (Santa sack and toys) and adhered it to the bottom of this page.  This page was a fun collection of photos of us being techy on Christmas Eve.  My niece is playing on my tablet.  My son is teaching my Sister-In-Law how to play Hangman with Friends on facebook with her friend (and my other niece joining in on her ipod touch).  My SIL is also teaching my youngest how to play games on their tv.

I added some sheer gold ribbon for some texture.

Here is my hidden journaling with an ornament border.

Tis that time of year!

Well, I have been quite lately because I have been trying to organize my scraproom as well as destash some of my oh so many treasures.  So, once again, I have some items that I thought I would see if any one of my friends here on would like to enjoy them. 

can you believe one person can own that many stamp pads?! Oh and I have to add that they are all stampin up pads in classic and craft.  I can't believe it myself either. 

So, I have gone through the huge endeavor last night and today.  Phew, I have a headache! lol  Can you doubt that after seeing that interesting pile of boxes? :)

So, I googled and found a list of all the current and retired stamping up pads and made my way to organize and separate wheat I had.  Of course I was not surprised to find out that I had some duplicates which I knew I did but, not to the level of which you will see shortly.  So, to raise some cash for Christmas and my little boys birthday party this month, I am listing some for sale here.  If you would like to purchase any, please hit reply on this email if you are on email subscription or comment on this post of the items that you would like along with your zip code so I can calculate shipping costs.  I will then, paypal you and send these happily on their way to your crafty home.  I want to make sure they go to a happy home.  Most of them are used but, I do have a few new in the plastic wrap.  Oh and some are craft pigment ink as well as the classic ink so, be sure to check out the pictures carefully with the list of colors on the pad itself.  The prices range from $1.99- $5.99 each plus shipping. I have over 51 different colors so, that should provide a ton of color inspiration.

So, without further interruptions.....
