A2Zscraplets june challenge-set by me

i cant believe its the first of june already. 
so many fantastic challenges from so many great scrapping sites go up on the first and i hope you get time to play along with a2zscraplets challenge too. 
you are more than welcome to combine challenges just as long as you mention A2Zscraplets and link back to us, that would be appreciated. 

so i have set you a new challenge to make an ....OFF THE PAGE PROJECT
i love making them and i have some very special ones to show you later on this month but firstly i would like to show you my diet journal. 

im due to have my 5th baby anyday now (as im currently overdue) and as well as finding time to scrap the gorgeous scraplets debra makes to show to you lovely ladies, i also instruct at a gym so health and fitness are very important to me. this journal is to keep me on track with my eating and exercising to loose weight after i have bub. i have used a note book from the news agency and covered it in cardstock. i love using the ringbinding ones as its so easy to take it off and cover properly and then place it back onto the note book. 
and a close up of doodlet 27

and here is what it looks like when you buy it
(i have cut it in half and you might remember i used the other half for a worry box for my daughter last year)

i applied it with gesso with my finger and the lightly inked over the top.
arranged some flowers, leaves and vines to it then topped it off with a little butterfly and a simple quote. 

im a list maker so making another note book is note so strange for me. 
here it is

with chipboard that is as affordable as a2zscraplets and a few left over papers these make great gifts for teachers at the end of the school year or for a friend.

so now its your your projects up on the blog for a chance to win a great little prize and feel free to share them on our facebook page too.
i will be back later in the month to show you some more off the page projects i have made. 
bye for now


  1. I love your journals and as you know I am a list maker too... I wonder where that comes from? I am envious of your commitment to health and know that you will achieve your goals as you are very focused! Great work Bel... I will see if I can come up with an OTP for the challenge!

  2. Wow both journals look how you've transformed them into such unique personal journals for yourself. Brilliant work!

    Best of luck with the birth of bub...I'm guessing he/she may have arrived by now? Hope all is well with you both :)

    Thank you also for your lovely comment on my blog regarding my Kaisercraft DT entry....I really do appreciate your encouraging words :)
