July Gossamer Blue...handmade journaling cards from Main Kit only

Hey everyone, these journaling cards are up on the Gossamer Blue blog today so I thought I would share them here too.  My method for creating handmade journaling cards for my Project Life pages is to take journaling cards that I have in my stash and then fancy them up a bit.  All of these cards were embellished with papers & such from the Gossamer Blue Main Kit.  
I have learned to keep the cards very simple,  leaving lots of room for my typewriter journaling, small Instagram photos and other embellishments that will be added later.  
I loved these Elle's Studio Saltwater Frames.  I backed them with a regular journaling card adding vellum pockets and sequins to a few.  These will be perfect to just plop a mini Instagram on and slip int a pocket.
I stitched around them to give them a nice finished look. These would be great on a card front too.  I'm going to have to set a few aside and try that out for a birthday card or something.
Two of my faves, the one with the vellum pocket and tag and the one with a window with sequins behind it.  I could totally see the sequin card being used for a birthday theme with maybe a flair button on top or a fun dimensional sticker.
I've got more handmade journaling cards to show you still this month so come back soon.  Enjoy!

Thanks so much for posting these! You have really helped me see how to use some of those Project Life cards that aren't really my style or that don't match my color scheme. (Yes, I am "one of those" PL'ers who likes things to match, at least a bit!!) Love your blog and all of your fabulous, adorable ideas!
