Hidden Journalling

Another LO with the Kaisercraft After Five collection.
Have I mentioned that this is my fave KaiserCraft range so far??
I really wanted to focus on using those cute journal tag pads that come with each range.
I often create my projects, and forget all about them, and the designs are usually far too cute to be forgotten! So this month I created a little booklet for some hidden journalling. A lot of the journalling I do on the LOs about my mum really don't need to be shared with the world...most people looking through my albums just want to quickly flick through, not read for ages ;)
I simply journalled on the tags for as long as I wanted.
I then mounted the tags on some accordian folded strips of Card. The strips needed to be longer than 12', so I simply joined strips when necessary in the 'hill' folds with double sided tape.

And then tucked it neatly away.

Aren't the beiges in this collection gorgeous?

what a touching and healing LO Kirsty.

It would have been so hard to start to write down your thoughts, but I bet the pen just flowed on and on when you got going. And to let the tears flow too.

and very prettily wrapped up too.
