I inked the edges of the mat board and all the cardstock and then adhered to the mat board.
I put together according to the direction on the packaging.
I also added lace to around the bottom of the holder to finish it off.
Next I cut two of the Stamp & Photo Storage Dies from Mat Board but I decided I was going to be a little different and create a mini album out of this diecut. 😀
This is what the diecuts look like when they are cut out.
These are the edges I cut off to create the base for my mini album cover.
I inked the edges and covered the front and back with cardstock.
I also adhered cardstock inside along with a pocket to the inside cover.
I sewed four pieces of cardstock inside the journal and tied off on the inside.
I adhered lace to the spine after decorating the cover with a couple of fussy cut images and scraps of cardstock.
Next I added seam binding and a key charm to the spine.
Next comes the fun part…decorating the pages!
I used an assortment of leftover embellishments that I had laying around from past projects.
Where I tied off the pages inside and left the thread long I added four of the Stitchy Flower & Leaf Diecuts on the ends.
The pocket that holds the “key to” tag is actually from a iTune gift card. All I had to do is add a butterfly printable and attach it with a little washi tape.
I also added used postage stamp, coin roller and printable images throughout the journal.
And there you have it! I absolutely LOVE this newest diecut collection that Eileen has designed! If you want to see more hop on over to Eileen’s blog and see what the Inspiration Team has created with this newest collection! You can find the blog HERE.
As always if you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
