Eileen Hull: Pleather Wrapped Journal

Hi everyone! Can you believe it is already July?!?! I can’t! When I created this wrapped journal for Eileen Hull’s  booth at Creativation it was in January! If you haven’t seen my past blog posts from last month of this newest diecut from Eileen’s Book Club Chapter 2 Collection you can find those HERE, HERE and HERE.

The Wrapped Journal Diecut I used a piece of “pleather” (plastic that looks like leather) to create this journal. I cut to fit two a pieces of Kraft Paper Leather and adhered to the inside on both spines. I also cut a piece of lace to cover the spine where the booklets would be and glued with Fabri-Tac Adhesive. 

I strung elastic to hold the booklets and tied off inside of the journal. I punch a small hole on the smaller flap and added a decorative brad which I tied bright colored seam binding around the brad. On the inside I adhered lace on either side of the paper leather.

Since I used bright and cheery colors for my journal I went with a similar theme for the inside of the journal.

I used Paper Doll Diecuts through out the journal.

Since I am a hoarder of scrapbook paper, embellishments, etc. This year I have tried to incorporate more of my stash into what I am creating.

I think the little sayings and whimsical diecuts are from Crate Paper but not for sure? I had received those in a swap a few years back. But I think they are a perfect compliment to the paper dolls.

I used up a lot of scraps of cardstock by cutting out several tags from the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags  Diecuts.

I adhered only the lower part of the paper dolls to the page so I could add several tags behind them.

Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog and see what her Inspiration Team has been up to. You can find her blog HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:
Mini Album Challenge: July

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
