Challenge #4 -- Make Your own Journaling Card

Wowzers!  It is already August!  This is one of my favorite months of the year --not only do I have a birthday this month but so does my mother-in-law, daughter-in-law and my adorable youngest grandchild....Isabelle Grace who will be 2 on August 16th.
To celebrate this month I am offering a special of THE most talked about collections from the recent summer CHA......
Bella Blvd's Snapshots collection!!

My LSS just called me and told me the collections I ordered are in.  Due to my work schedule, I have not gotten over there to pick them up yet so I do not have a photo.  However you can see more HERE
So, you ask.....what is required to be in the running for this super cool prize?  The challenge this time is to make your own journaling card.  Here is one that I whipped up last night:

I used a sheet from my 6x6 Fancy Pants paper pad Down By the Shore, cut it to 3x4 and rounded the corners. Then I punched 3 cute little anchors out of the bottom with my Studio Calico anchor punch and backed it with navy cardstock.  I took a small strip of red mini chevron paper and adhered that and topped it with a sticker from the same Fancy Pants collection.  I added some faux stitching around the edges and called it done.  I loved making this and could easily get addicted to making them. What a great way to use up your scraps and unused stickers.

I also made a couple of cards for this Week #20 page:

I made the Click! card in about 90 seconds (cut the scrap paper, rounded the corners and added 2 Simple Stories stickers).  I also made the Hockey Is Life 4x6 journaling card with an old epoxy sticker.

A;right so now it is your turn.  Let me see what you can make.  If you would like some more inspiration check out THIS awesome recent blog post on the Pebbles blog by Nicole Nowosad.

You have until noon on August 14th to link your project.  I will announce the winner that evening and we will have a new challenge on August 15th.
