GDT - Stephanie Ackerman

DANCE Journal

With the end of another school year and all the related activities, it’s always nice to give that special someone a gift in appreciation of all they’ve done for your child. I created this journal for a wonderful Dance instructor.


Spiral bound notebook of any size/style/color

(my notebook is about 6" x 6")

Red, White, Black, Brown, Offwhite and Pink Prism cardstock

Cricut Expression or Original Cricut

Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartridge

Ranger Spun Sugar Distress Ink

Cuttlebug D’Vine Swirls embossing folder


Cut red cardstock approximately 5 ¾" x 5 ¾"

Cut white cardstock approximately 5 ¼" x 5"

Emboss white cardstock with Cuttlebug D’Vine Swirls embossing folder

Ink edges with Spun Sugar ink

Using the ballerina instructions on page 42 of the Cricut booklet,

Cut Body #1 at 4 ¾" from brown cardstock

Cut Body #1 again from offwhite cardstock (shift + body)

Cut Ballerina costume and shoes from black cardstock

Cut leggins from pink cardstock

Cut skirt and hair bows from darker shade of pink cardstock

Assemble ballerina

Add a little rouge to her cheeks with chalk

Type Dance on your computer, using a script font

Cut to 1" x 4" and ink the edges with Spun Sugar ink

Mat on pink cardstock

Assemble your journal

The beauty of creating this journal is that you can use all the scraps you’ve been accumulating all while creating a one of a kind journal that anyone would love to receive.

What a sweet journal! Thank you, Stephanie for sharing this great tutorial with us. You can let her know how much you enjoyed her post by leaving Stephanie a message here or just go to her blog at Stephanie Scraps.
