Wreck This Journal

I got my journal today!!!

As I said in my last post, I won a Wreck This Journal from a giveaway Jo from smile monsters was having! Since we are state neighbors (me-oklahoma, jo-texas) my journal arrived quickly!
Along with the amazing giveaway journal she also sent along an adorable heart ring

AND some cute goodies to help beautify the wreckage.

One of the rules to entering the giveaway is to document it on your blog, so for the next several days....months, I will have a picture/video at the end of each post showing what I've done with the journal.

Since I received it today, I started working on the cover.
I definitely felt like a little girl sticking random things on it! And it looks like a little girl decorated the cover! hehe

I stitched my name on the cover with blue floss.

I made two Coraline inspired owls.

Punched out a corner of the journal and stamped it with a bird stamp I use for Stelabird.

Ready to start?

Here are the instructions:

This should be interesting!
Be sure to check out to see Jo's journal!


  1. I am seriously thinking about getting one of these for myself. Looks like fun!

  2. Wow! You did a very nice job decorating the cover, hehe. The floss is a really good idea! I think I need to join the journal wrecking club. :] I always have a hard time defacing books, (librarian!) so I think this will be a good stress reliever.

    What an idea that would be--having a Wreck This Journal at a library??

  3. That looks like so much fun! I always feel a little guilty tearing up old books for the art prints I've been making. Your cover is adorable!~

  4. Congrats Estela!

    I am ordering mine today cuz I wanna have fun too!!


  5. That's going to be awesome, I look forward to seeing what your wonderful mind comes up with. Wreck on, sista'!!

  7. This is awesome! I was thinking of buying one of those journals today when I saw it, after seeing yours I'm definitely buying it now! It's real nifty aye :)


  8. oh my...i think i have to have that journal!! i've really been wanting to get into journal sketching but not sure how to get my brain into the swing of it. this might be a great starter!! FUNNN!
