Willoughby Abundance Journal


I am in love with Willoughby. Do I sound like a Jane Austen Character? Actually, it's one of TAC's new paper collections. I would love to wallpaper my world in Willoughby.

This is a project I designed for the new Fall and Winter Inspiration Book and I had my friend Debbie Rivers in mind. She writes the most inspirational blog for TAC, Simply Inspired. You'll love Debbie's uplifting messages, one of which is abundance. She encourages us to find abundance in our daily lives, and I marvel sometimes at how many blessings I have.


It started out as a plain journal with a velvety cover; the kind you would find at a greeting card store. It was fun to add flourishes from Artsy Elements right on the cover with Palette Burnt Umber and Cognac ink (you can stamp on ANYTHING with that stuff) and I even decorated some of the pages. That new swirl on the corners is Decorative Corners, another of my new faves.
