One Little Word Journal Part 1 | BasicGrey Hello

In my previous BasicGrey box, I also found this gorgeous 7×9 journal from the Hello collection. I thought it was perfect for my One Little Word class by Ali Edwards this year. I haven’t embellished the cover yet, but I’ve kept the inside of my journal up-to-date.

One Little Word Journal Title Page

I used one of the journal insert as my title page for the album. I loved the colors and the camera image. For the title, my One Little Word for this year is ‘balance’, I used a Silhouette cut. I first used the negative cut to mist the word onto my insert, and then layered the white cardstock letters on top with dimensional adhesive.

The everyday flair is not from BasicGrey, the day stamps in the background on the other hand are. They from the Hello collection as well. The small letter stickers are from the Fact & Fiction collection.

On the back of the insert, the backside of the cover, I wrote the definition of the word ‘balance’. On the right hand page, I used a divided page protector for my January page.

I added one of those cute typewriter wood veneers by Studio Calico. The orange tag is the other part of the one on the front page, and is from a Hey Boy Snippet.

The divided page protector for January has 6 pockets, perfect for all the months of the year, 6 in the front, 6 in the back. Every month is stamped with that same stamp set from the Hello collection, embossed in white on the kraft solid paper from the Hey You collection. I punched some tabs and also added small stickers from the Hello collection to add some extra interest.

The second half of the year is in the backside of the pageprotector. On the right hand page there’s a smaller insert for March. For those of you familiar with the classes, my February assignment is collected on a Pinterest board and is still waiting to get printed and added to the journal.

OLW Journal March For March I added the printables handed out by Ali Edwards in the classroom. I cut the page in half and glued them back to back on a piece of patterned paper from the Hey You collection. To the top of the page, I added a strip of masking tape, in which I punched holes.

My March assignment is still blank, as I find it very hard to come up with an action for my word, but I’m working on it.

On the back of the March page I added the speech bubble stamp and the month.

    Your journal looks very beautiful, Els! Not to scare you – I think this was the time I got stuck when I took the class… but then again, I didn’t have such a nice album to work on 🙂 Good luck with the assignment and keeping your balance!
