Hi everyone! I’m here today to share this mini journal I created for my Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team project. I had actually started this project this past summer but had laid it aside. I wanted to make a mini pocket journal with the “sleeve” from the Stacking Drawer Diecut. I had seen something similar on instagram and thought the “sleeve” diecut to the drawer was the perfect option.
Before stitching the pages into the journal I cut a piece of cardstock 1 3/8″x2″ and punched holes about 1/4″ a part, sewed the pages onto the cardstock and adhered to the inside spine.
Some of the diecuts I folded cardstock in half and slightly moved into the diecut before running through the diecut machine to create a larger diecut page.
I also cut tags and flowers for the inside pockets. I added a brad to the center of each flower.
The outside of the album I added an assortment of diecuts from Eileen along with store bought diecuts. I created these two frozen Charlotte dolls from a mold and paper clay and I also use the little house diecut from the Christmas House Ornament Diecut.
I added thread, sequins and gems as filler to complete the front of the journal.
Be sure to check Eileen Hull’s blog for the latest projects from the rest of the Inspiration Team! You can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

I placed a piece of 5/8″ stretch elastic around an ink pen and the edges of the binder clip before cutting. Since ink pens are different sizes I didn’t include the measurement. You do want the elastic to be a little snuggle so your ink pen won’t fall out of the clip.
I adhered each side of the elastic to either side of the clip.
I cut two piece of cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad slightly larger…height wise and adhered the bottom of each piece to either side of the clip. I cut on either side of the elastic the cardstock and folded the middle piece under.
I adhered the “tabs” of the leftover cardstock that was cut over the backside of each side of the clip.
Hi everyone! It is hard to believe that in about a week Autumn will officially be here. As many of you know I am not really a fan of cooler weather, leaves changing colors or pumpkin spice latte (I’m allergic to cinnamon) but today I am over on Eileen Hull’s blog sharing how I created this fun little Fall house. I love the colors and the texture…it is the first time using extra heavy gel…and how didn’t I know about this gel sooner??? 😮 Anyway you can find my blog post HERE.
Also I’ve included links to all of the supplies I used in this projects.
I inked a glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Inks and add water to each color. I loaded a paint brush with Flagstone Ink mix and splatter each side of the box. Clean brush and load Coconut Ink mix and splatter each side. I fussy cut a doily from the DIY Shop Paper Collection and adhere to the top of the box.
Hi everyone and Happy November! I want to share an Autumn themed tea cup I created for ClearSnap!
I started by printing out a Tea Cup Printable from Layers of Color which is found on Pinterest. I printed on burnt orange cardstock and fussy cut tea cup and saucer images out and adhered all pieces together, including a paper doily that I added to the sauce before adhering to the cup. I also glueda small wadded piece of tissue paper to the bottom of the tea cup.
I adhered the leaves inside tea cup along with mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. I finished by placing tulle and cording as a filler between mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. Now are you ready to create one for yourself? 😀 As always if you have any question please let me know.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
I inked my glass tray with Nutmeg Blends Ink ,add water and painted the outside of the journal and both inside spines with watered down ink and let dry. Next I loaded several Art Daubers with the following inks: Mercantile: Candied Yam and Red Barn, Cornucopia: Pumpkin Spice Inks and lightly rub over the outside/inside in random spots on the journal to emulate woodgrain texture on the cover. I inked the glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Blends Inks,added water to each color and loaded a paint brush with watered down Flagstone ink and splatter on the outside cover and inside spine and let dry. I completed the same steps as with the Flagstone ink with the Coconut ink and let dry.
I cut and adhere patterned cardstock to the inside of journal and strung elastic cording to the inside of the spine and tie off.
I cut three pieces of cardstock in various sizes to create a flap for the front smaller cover and adhered. I punched a small hole in the center and at the end of the flap and add decorative brad. I cut two more pieces of cardstock to cover the back of the brad on the inside cover.
I cut out one small wreath diecut, one circle punch and one seal circle punch and adhered to the cover. I adhered a doll head to the corner of the wreath, loop hemp cording, embossed leaf and two mini flowers next to the doll head and added mini gems to the flowers.
I cut 28 inches of hemp cording and fold in half and tied securely around brad.
I wrapped cording around journal and tie a knot about an inch under the brad, add three beads and tie off. Cut off excess cording. As always I welcome comments or questions about this project.
I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:
Hi everyone and happy first day of October! I want to share an Autumn Hoop that I created for ClearSnap. I started by spritzing Log Cabin Smooch Spritz into a plastic bowl and adding a small amount of water to create a stain. I saturated a fabric scrap and wipe down the wooden hoop until the desired color was achieved. I put the hoop a side and let dry.
Hi everyone! I back today with my Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team project! The challenge for this month was to create a project in a Halloween/Autumn theme. It has been hard to get excited about Fall since the temperatures have been in the upper 80’s to lower 90’s so I decided to use the new DCWV Okey Dokey Paper Pad and go with a black and white leaves, flowers and mushroom theme…you could say kinda Autumn themed. 😁
I cut the inside cover with one of the black and white speckled cardstock from the Okey Dokey Paper Padand adhered inside.
From the same paper pad I picked out the black and white line drawings of leaves, flowers and mushroom and cut and adhered to the outside cover. From the internet I found a vintage black and white drawing of a mushroom. I printed and fussy cut the mushroom out. I adhered a piece of patterned cardstock to the smaller cover and the mushroom. On the larger cover I applied a piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back of patterned cardstock. I placed the “Journal” Diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts and ran through the diecut machine. I peeled the backing off of the adhesive and added the “Journal” diecut to the cover. I poked a small hole in the center of the spine and ran white elastic cording through the hole and tied off to create a closure. I also strung black elastic cording in the spine to hold journaling notebooks.
I cut the stitching out of a mini notebook. You can find these in packs of three at the Dollar Tree.
I got four booklets with six pages each from the one mini notebook.
From the Okey Dokey Paper Pad I cut covers for each of the notebooks and then stitched all pages and covers together. I also added my initial and “Journal” diecut to the cover of two of the notebooks.
I also cut dash boards to cover some of the notebooks and some will hold sticky notes.
I plan on adding more to the journal and will share once I finish those projects. 😀 Also be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see the latest projects the Inspiration Team has created. You can find those post HEREand HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
I would also like to submit this project for the following challenge.
Apply mini gems around the top of the jute cording.
Cut two medium flowers and three small flowers from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. Lightly ink two art daubers with Red Barn and Carney Inks and apply to the center of each flower.
Once dry add a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower. Lay each flower on top of each other and pinch the center of all the flowers and shape.
I cut one Leaf out of Watercolor Paper from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecut. Ink art dauber with Carney Ink and apply over the leaf diecut and shape leaf.
Apply Top Boss Embossing pad to the edges of the leaf. Sprinkle Copper Embossing Powder over the embossed area of the leaf and set embossing powder with heat tool.
I completed the same steps as above with each of the following embossing powders: Gold Sparkle and Opalescent Embossing Powders.
Loop two hemp cordings and tie off along with a couple of messy loops of yellow and peach thread. Adhere to the back of the flower along with the leaf and glue to jar.
Add lace and pearl sprays behind the flower and to finish off all you need is a battery operated candle.
This project would be prefect for an Autumn wedding too. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
