I have had a hard cover dollar store journal for quite a few years in my 'stash that I always knew I'd eventually use and that's why I'm keeping it'. (please tell me you all have one of them :) So, I pulled it out and covered it with some Brenda Watson paper and my trusty glue gun. For the cover, I cut the white background with the Just Cards cart and sponged the edges with pink Distress Ink. I added the word Mom from the Cursive 101 cart and stamped My Mind's Eye stamps on the background along with a cute border stamp I picked up for $1.50! from Michaels. I used the Heritage cart for the bird cut out and covered it with flocking. This was the first time I've used flocking and I was pleased with the results!
I added a line of stickles in the cutouts of the white background and added a ribbon bookmark in the back, inside cover (below).
