Bird Folio Journal Reveal Part One

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project for Eileen Hull and the reveal (part one) of the inside of my journal I created using Eileen Hull’s Folio Journal Diecut and Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. If you missed the big Chapter 1 Release Party that Eileen hosted at the beginning of the month I have a blog post with details and more photos and instructions on how I created the cover of my folio journal. You can find that post HERE.

I placed a piece of folded patterned cardstock slightly past the cut line of the page diecut (from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits), placed washi tape on the thinlit and cardstock before running through the Diecut Machine. I cut three pages/papers per signature for a total of nine pages/papers but today I’m only sharing the first set of pages.

I punched holes and added the claps with brads and then covered with a piece of patterned cardstock. This secures the clasps and brads in place. Side note…I forgot to include this step in the post where I shared how I created the cover….ooops!

I slide the pages up under the elastic cording in the spine and tied ribbon over the elastic before I started decorating the pages. The inside cover I adhered a pocket, shaped and added a flower and leaf to the pocket along with a gem to the center of the flower. The pocket is a great place to store journaling cards or photos. On the first page I added a glassine bag with washi tape. I dug into my stash and found this birdcage die which I adhered to the bag. I placed two tags inside the glassine bag and added flowers and sprigs, one to the tag and one to the corner of the birdcage.

On the inside of the glassine bag I added a bird and shaped punch and more flowers and a sprig along with a piece of trim at the bottom of the bag.

The next several pages I decorated with an assortment of tags, diecuts, stickers, thread, cheese cloth and the flowers, leaf and sprig thinlits. Most of the flowers I added gems or flat back pearls to the center, and I also shaped with a Stylus.

There you have it part one of the inside of my folio journal! If you haven’t been by Eileen’s blog to see what the Inspiration Team has been up to lately you can find this month’s blog posts HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about the pages or what products I used (I shopped my stash) please let me know. I’ll do my best to answer.
