Baby Wrapped Journal Cover Part One

Hi everyone! It has been a crazy and insane month and I am barely getting in a project for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team…EEK!!! šŸ˜° I decided since I will have a new grandson in nine weeks I would create a little baby album using the Wrapped Journal Diecut.

I started by cutting theĀ Wrapped Journal DiecutĀ from a piece of Mat BoardĀ and I embossed both end with a cloud embossing folder that I had picked up at Joann’s. Next I inked a glass tray with ColorBox Blends Bay Ink, added water, painted both outside and inside ends of the journal and theĀ same forĀ the spines and I let dry. I adhered a patterned cardstock on the back of the journal since IĀ accidentally bled on it. šŸ˜”

I lightly inked the edges of the journal and the embossed images with ColorBox Blends Uniform Ink. Next I inked the glass tray with ColorBox Blends Coconut Ink and with a paint brush I lightly painted a wash over the clouds, let dry and then I dry brushed around some of the clouds.

I cut a couple of stars from the Bookplate, Hinges and Label Diecut and inked with ColorBox Blends Tutu Ink and once dry I added Stickles to each star.

I cut the “baby” journaling card from the Simply Stories Hello Baby Paper Pad and added a star bradĀ beforeĀ adhering to the smaller journal flap. I glued the star diecuts and mini gems to the cover.

I punched a hole at the end of the baby journaling card and added a bradĀ which will be used as a closure. I cut a piece of cordingĀ which I folded in half making it 14 inches long beforeĀ tying it around the brad. I wrapped the cording around the brad, thenĀ tied a knot in the cording and added three beadsĀ before tying the end of the cording and cut the excess cording off.

The inside of the journal I added patterned cardstock from theĀ Simply Stories Hello Baby Paper Pad. I also covered the back of the baby journaling card with a piece of wood patterned cardstock to hide the back of the brad. I strung the journal with elastic cording and waa laa…finished!Ā I willĀ follow up next month with the inside ofĀ this baby album so stay tuned for a fullĀ reveal! šŸ˜€
