LSNED-Sheila's Version

When Maura emailed that she was posting her class materials for our "Learn Something New Everyday" class this month, I had no idea of what I wanted to do or what I wanted to end up with. I honestly was a bit confused about the class...was it journaling, photos, a part of my Project Life? So, being confused also led me to be a bit unenthusiastic about working on it. Now, I do have a list beside me that has a lesson I have learned each day so far...but other than that list....I had nothing.

Until now. I decided to make this project easy on myself. It may or not not include a photo. But it will include journaling from each day.

I looked through my stash and found a very old tin from Pinecone Press. I added some school themed papers on the cover and the inside, added some ribbon charm letters and a handmade Flair button that I designed to match.
tin measures about 3 1/2" by 4 1/2"
For the inside I designed and printed out some penmanship paper, cut them to size and after I realized that if I bound them as a book, it would no longer fit inside, I just decided to alter a binder clip and used that.
I stamped each of the journaling cards with numbers for the days of the month or for each lesson learned I suppose.
 And I added a stamped bookplate to the back with details.
Now I really like my take on this class and am actually looking forward to completing each little card. Some might just have journaling, others may include a little photo or perhaps even a bit of embellishing but I finally feel like I am into the swing of things. Better late than never!


  1. I love it! Great idea to use the tin for this! Like you, it took me awhile to figure this out. Glad we are now in a more creative spot.

  2. This is so fantastic! Such a creative way to work through class!

  3. I am loving this class. Looking forward to more updates. Thanks for visiting my blog :)
