Sweet Life Journal & Card with Michelle Philippi

A lot of people see patterns and fashion and pretty scenery and use that as their inspiration when they are creating something. I'm not one of those people. I don't know what that means - if it's a left brain/right brain thing or what, but when I sit down to create, my inspiration or my roadmap really does come from the product that I am working with. And when I got my box of all the new Glitz stuff I had a bunch of ideas comin' at me right and left. 

The first idea? Use the Glitz chipboard album and make something with it.
Whoa. I've never done this before! So what I decided to do was go big or go home. I actually combined the Vintage Blue and the Dance in Sunshine albums to make one big one.

I added in some large glassine bags as pockets to store some keepsakes in this little album.
And then I embellished both sides of the bag with pretty Glitz peek-a-boos, whatnots, stickers and more.

I'm using this journal for an end of the year birthday so I made a quick card to coordinate with the gift.
