I bought all the Papertrey Ink Traveler's Journal kit components with the gift certificate I got for Christmas. The book is one of the little traveler's notebook one can make with the precut and punched paper and cardstock. There is also a die to make a cover that the traveler's journals can be stored in (and easily removed and swapped out).

All sorts of dies (including the frame in the top picture) which I put to work on all the little scraps I had on my desk.

And a die for these lovely little square envelopes which I had me digging out eyelets and my eyelet setters (never get rid of crafting supplies : D). The one on top is made out of Papertrey Ink's Linen Vellum, the lower one is made with kraft cardstock, and I might be making a serious dent in my 4.5 foot stack of patterned paper lol. I used silk ribbon to make the closure of the vellum one.

My anxiety has been skyrocketing as January marches on. So I'm putting all the Distress Tolerance Crisis Survival Strategies in the handout my therapist gave me into a little book. I'm more likely to remember it if I've written it down and colored it.

For a gander at more crafty spaces head over to Julia's Stamping Ground!
