Quick gifts: Personalized Journal and Bag

I may be late to the party but I know I'm not alone. If you don't have the Dritz Mini Iron, you need to get it ASAP! It's powerful and gets very hot. It's perfect for small projects and when you don't (in my case) feel like pulling out your iron or heat press for something so small.  I did this fabric Journal for my friend, Treva, in a snap.
I cut out the HTV (heat transfer vinyl) with my Cameo, pulled out the parchment paper and a few minutes later I had created this personalized Journal and bag for a gift. ( The bag is regular vinyl because it is plastic.)
 This is the Journal before. Just plain and boring.
Just adding a simple monogram  makes the Journal look so much better.  Make sure you used parchment paper or a teflon sheet over the HTV.

Here is an actual picture of the iron. They are $29.99 at Joanns. I got mine with a 50% off coupon. 
***Update!!!!!  I was just informed that they are now 39.99 at Joanns.***
Thanks for stopping by.
