Evening Dress Journal

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I created for Eileen Hull. I used the Frame Pocket Journal Diecut to create this journal. So let’s get started!

A little back story on this project, I had only enough patterned cardstock to create the cover…front/back and insides of both halves of the covers. I kept on telling myself be sure to place both the right side up so your covers aren’t opposite each other. Guess what I did? I placed and cut them wrong so I had the inside cover on the outside and the outside cover inside for the journal.

I didn’t want to waste the Mat Board, Adhesive Sheets and patterned cardstock. I had just enough leftover patterned cardstock to recover one of the covers. So I cut the spine down to one signature, adhered one flap on top of the other flap and once dry I punched holes at both ends of the spine. I ran elastic cording through the holes and tied off inside of the journal.

I dug into my stash of chipboard pieces, buttons, trim, fussy cut the evening gown from cardstock and glued everything to the cover.

The notebook for the inside of the journal I took one personal size travelers notebook and cut off the bottom half of the notebook to make it fit. I embossed a piece of cardstock, from the Essentials Cardstock Collection, with the 3D Tablecloth Embossing Folder. I cut the embossed piece to fit the cover of the notebook and adhered to the front.

I used the leftover scrap of patterned cardstock from covering the cover of the journal, another fussy cut evening gown and frame chipboard piece to decorate the cover of the notebook.

I placed the notebook inside the journal and called it finished!
