Tsunami Rose Designs: Traveler’s Notebook

Hi everyone! I am here today to share my design team project for Tsunami Rose Designs.
I decide instead of a typical junk journal I would created a ten pages traveler’s notebook for my dori. I had a leftover file folder that I had used to make a dash board for my planner. I rounded the corners and folded in half to create a 4″x7 1/2″ cover for my traveler’s notebook.

I had leftover printables from the following kits from Tsunami Rose Designs: Tea Party Desserts, Small Mason Jars Collections 1, Decoupage Flowers Set #2 and Printable Ephemera Set # 8 – Vintage Childrens Photos which I used throughout the notebook.

Next I cut ten sheets of grid cardstock to fit the inside of the notebook and sewed to the inside cover.

In the center of the notebook I used one of the envelopes from the Tea Party Desserts as a pocket. Before adhering it together I punched the holes and stitched to the center and then glued together.

I used a variety of leftover scraps of cardstock, embellishments and trim to dress up the pages but tried to not over do it.

I added plenty of tuck spots throughout the notebook. Even though the mason jars are small I enlarged some for larger journaling spots. The Lush Soft tag is off of a pair of jeans I purchase and I thought it would be cute addition to the page.

The back side of the lush soft tag I fussy cut a bouquet of flowers and add tiny gems to the centers of each flower along with Stickles to the leaves for a glittery touch.

I adhered a small mason jar to the corner as a pocket and added several printables for tons of journaling opportunities.

I side view of the notebook not too chunky…just the right size. 🙂

I’ve added it to my dori and now it is ready for me to add lists, notes and journaling to. 

Be sure to hop over to the Tsunami Rose Designs etsy shop and pick up these printables or if you are looking for a something different there is several themes available and the best part they are only $2.50!

Mason Jar Thank You

Hi everyone and happy Friday!!! I’m back to share a quick card I created for a customer. I used half of a doily, flower diecut, sequins, twine, scraps of scrapbook paper and the Forever thanks rubber stamp from Unity Stamps and the mason jar stamp is from Inkadinkado. I used a 6″ x6″ piece of cardstock and folded to make a 3″ x 6″ card base.

The Forever thanks sentiment I stamped twice on two different colors of cardstock and cut both out and added one on top of the other to make it look like a seal. It’s a super easy card to make!!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your weekend is wonderful and enjoying creating!!!

Scrappy Divas Mini Composition Notebook Swap

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a few quick projects that I actually created a month ago for a swap over at the Scrappy Divas Facebook page. We had to use a mini composition book which measure around  3 1/2x 4 1/2 inches. We were to decorate the front, back and inside. I checked with both on my swap partners to see if they had a preference and they left it up to me how I wanted to decorate it.
I created this orange and yellow comp mini for Von.

The inside I embossed the inside cover and wrapped the scrapbook paper around to make a small pocket that she can store tags or receipts.  Since I knew she likes butterflies I added those through out the comp mini.

The next one I used blues and soft pink and which I created for MiMi. 

In her mini comp book I added mason jar images that I had got over at Tsunami Rose’s site…the library cards that are the fronts of both comp minis are from there too. 

I also want to share what MiMi and Von created for me. The one below MiMi made me.
Von made this one with the butterfly on the front.
I absolutely think both ladies did an outstanding job. They are “almost” to pretty to write in…notice I said almost. 🙂
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and enjoy creating!!!
