I cut the journal from an extra thick file folder (love the floral design on the folder).

I cut two covers from the diecut and adhered the spine together.

Later this month I will share the inside of the journal so be sure to stop back by!

Chunky Mini Vintage Junk Journal

Hi everyone! I had started this project almost two years ago…do you have ¬†several of those types of projects laying around? ūüė¨ I had started this for another design team that I was on but the company was bought out and all the design team members were let go. Soooo I just laid it aside with the intent of finishing it for one of Eileen Hull’s projects. When I did pick it back up to work on it I found out the Needle Book diecut had been retired. Soooo I put it up again until now. One of my goals for this year is to work on my mountain of unfinished projects…along with new projects, of course! ūüėĀ ¬†
I started by applying Adhesive Sheets to the front and the back of a piece of Mat Board, placing on top of the diecut and running through the Diecut Machine. I then cut the diecut down the middle of the spine.
I cut another needle book from mat board and I cut it¬†down the middle diecut. I measured 1″ on each side of the fold and cut.
Then I cut another piece of matboard 2″ wide by 3 5/8″ high and adhered each 1″ sides to the matboard. This re-enforces the spine of the¬†needle book.
I adhered each of the covers to each of the flaps of the spine.
I measured on the inside of the spine and marked where I would sew in the signatures and punched small holes on both ends of the spine.
Each signature has 8 pieces of patterned cardstock. I used an abundance of leftover scraps from my stash.
I punched holes in the signatures and sewed each one into the spine and tied off.
Before decorating the inside pages I decorated the cover with a frozen Charlotte that I made with a mold and paper clay. I inked it and added butterfly wings to the back. I added an oval diecut, a flower with leaves before adhering the frozen Charlotte to the cover. 
I added bits of ephemera, scraps of cardstock, diecuts, etc. to the pages of this mini. 

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 challenge: 
Mini Album Makers Challenge: February

Collect Beautiful Moments Box with Eileen Hull

Hi everyone! I am super excited to share Eileen Hull’s newest ¬†Gift Box with Scalloped Edges and Label Diecut¬†from her Chapter One Collection! There is so much you can do with this diecut. The obvious is a box that you can add a gift inside if you like, a book or just decorate and use as a home decor piece.
For my project I used cardstock and cut a parts from an old Recollections paper pad I had. After I put the box together according to the directions I adhered corner protectors to each corner of the box and gems. 
  I raided my stash of paper flowers and other paper ephemera and added to the box.
I also used chipboard embellishments and stickers from Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes. I tried to add as much dimension as I could to each side. I accomplished this adding Foam Pop Dots to the back of the embellishments.
The top of the box I adhered a doily, decorative diecut, buttons, paper flower and a bow made from cording. 
For more inspiration hop on over to Eileen’s blog for more creativity from her team. You can find this month’s post HERE¬†and HERE. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Pastel December Daily Glue Book Journal

Hi everyone! I’m back today with my Inspiration Team project I created for Eileen Hull. Truth be told I started this December Daily in 2017. ūüėģ Let’s face it no matter how hard I try I have never finished a December Daily. NEVER! I love looking at other peoples dailies and long to have one that has all the photos and¬†documenting of my everyday life BUT in all honesty I don’t do anything exciting. I decorate the tree, wrap presents and then I get with my family and open the¬†presents…see nothing really exciting. So I turned this into a glue book that I have been working on for the last three years. What is a glue book? It is a journal/book that you glue whatever you want to into it…pretty simple huh? ūüėä
I started this December Daily by cutting the covers from a file folder using the Journal Diecut.
I extended and reinforced the spine with an extra piece of the file folder once I glued the covers together.
I decorated the cover with and assortment of Christmas cardstock, trims and embellishments. The snowman and snow woman is a printable that I sized up before printing, fussy cutting and adhering to the cover. I also glued the clasp to the inside of the cover and tied a piece of cording with a tassel on the end to use as a closure.
I covered the spine with lace, then punched holes through the lace and run the elastic cording through the holes and tied off inside. I also sewed a button to the spine to wrap the cording with tassel to.
For the inside of the journal/glue book I used blank journals that I had purchased in a package of six from Target. They are the perfect size other than I had to cut off the ends so they would fit. 
I used a deer printable that I had received in a swap to decorate the cover of the journal along with pom pom trim. On the inside cover I created a double belly band to hold scraps that will eventually make its way into this book.
This is the perfect way to use scraps of cardstock and printables.
I covered these pages with my collection of Christmas washi tape. 
I have so much Christmas Washi Tape that I had to make a flap to hold the extras.
The Happy Holidays sentiment is an envelope I cut down to create a side pocket to hold tags and printables. I added pieces of patterned cardstock and an embellishment underneath the postage stamp. 
On the other side of the page is the envelope flap that I decorated. 
On the inside of the flap I added more cardstock and a little sentiment I had cut from a piece of cardstock. On the page I created a diagonal pocket to hold Christmas tags I had pulled off of the presents I had received that were to cute to throw away. 
I also added bits of wrapping paper from past presents to the pages as a collage. There you have it a peek of some of the inside pages of my not so December Daily/Glue Book. As always if you have questions please let me know.
If you need more inspiration from Eileen’s team you can find her blog posts HERE¬†and HERE.

Beach Disc Junk Journal

Hi everyone! I am here to share my Inspiration Team project I created this month for Eileen Hull. The weather has been so cold in my neck of the woods that my project has a warm weather beach theme to it.


I decided to gather up all of my beach theme cardstock, stickers, embellishments and things I had put back from my trips to the beach along with the Book Binding Movers and Shapers Magnetic Diecut, Base Tray, burlap covered matboard, Book and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut and Medium Discs to create this journal.


I got so carried away that I didn’t photograph a before photo of the cover which I cut from burlap covered matboard using the¬†Book and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut. I¬†backed the cover with a patterned cardstock and inked the edges. ¬†I fussy cut sand dollars¬†from scrapbook¬†paper and¬†adhered to the bottom corner of the opening of the cover along with a button and added a pearl and gem to the¬†center of each sand dollar. ¬†I¬†adhered gems around the oval of the opening. A side note use a heavy duty adhesive to¬†hold the gems in place. I used Zip Dry Adhesive at first but wasn’t holding so I reapplied Fabri-Tac and that seems to be holding them in place.


I love the¬†Book Binding Movers and Shapers Magnetic Diecut! There is so many possible uses for it! My journal has a total of 35 pages, plus the front and back covers. So¬†this is one packed journal and the best part I can take it with me on my vacation¬†already¬†assembled. No, taking a load of cardstock, embellishments, etc. which nine times out of ten I won’t fool with that much¬†because…well…you¬†know..I’m on vacation. ūüėé


I added a business card (Chick A Fil is a favorite place to eat at) and sacks/bags to the journal too.


I love the fact that you can move pages around or add or even take out completely.


I also made pages from a pamphlet I had picked up.


I used a hotel note pad for some pages in my journal too.


I threw in some paint chips in a beach theme.


The map I wanted to include was too large so I cut it down and folded and used a paper clip to keep it from flopping around.


Coffee sleeves work well as pockets to hold tags or receipts.



I added a drink coaster from my favorite restaurant to the journal.


I saved this bag from an order I received. I folded it over to create a flap, added some ric rac and a clip to keep ephemera safe.



Since the discs have a small heart in the center of each one I added an assortment  of fiber, seam binding, ribbon and charms to the top disc on the journal.


There you have it! One junk journal ready to go to the beach with me…hopefully this year…all I’ll need is an ink pen, Insta Printer and a small stash of embellishments and I am ready!
Be sure to check out these posts from Eileen’s team: HERE, HERE and 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:
Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes: Challenge #318-#319
Mini Album Makers Challenge: January Challenge

Mini Bird Junk Journal

Hi everyone! Has the weather started warming up where you live? Here for the most part we have had days in the 70’s to upper 80’s with everything in full bloom. I think we have skipped Spring and jump right on into Summer. ūüėé
I wanted to share my finished junk journal with you all. Do you remember I did a how to on how to stitch this journal? If not you can find that post HERE. Well, here is the finished project!


I used a variety of scraps of cardstock, stickers and bits and pieces I had laying around to create this little journal.


I even used a paperbag that held silverware in it from Chili’s to add tags to.



The blurbs I cut from packaging and added Stickles for some interest and of course I have to always add a paper doily to any¬†journal I create. ūüėä


I forgot to add that I sewed in a total of six papers and that is including the paperbag. 


I love how chunky this little journal turned out! 


I also did a short flip through video of the inside of the journal which I hope you enjoy! 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 challenge:
