In our line of work, you don’t want to miss getting guest’s signatures. Living overseas, they might not pass this way again (although we hope they do!). I also wanted these books to be special for years to come. We hadn’t come across any journals that might fit the bill, so I decorated two journals from the dollar store.
For The Vineyard side of the retreat center, I cut a grapevine with my Silhouette—as always, we’re amazed what it can do—how intricate a cut is that?! I used travel themed paper my aunt had given me along with a pseudo pocket I made from card stock and lace fabric. Sewing paper is fun when it works right!
For The Orchard side of the retreat center, I used the same travel themed paper and a pear graphic from The Graphics Fairy. I sewed the edges of the pear piece and a button on the label and then added a ruffled piece of linen. Yeah for things coming together!
