Just Fabulous Notebook

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project using Eileen Hull’s newest Notebook Diecut. This project I created for Creativation this past January. I cut the notebook from Matboard and covered with a Fabulous Paper Collection from Authentique. Next I cut from matboard the frame from the Books and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut. I embossed it with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired). I inked the frame with a Tutu Blends Ink and once that was dry I lightly went around the edges with Metallic Blush Pigment Ink. Before adhering to the front cover I glued an image of a woman from the Fabulous Paper Collection to the inside of the frame. 

I cut two flowers from the Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts. I shaped and adhered together. I fussy cut flowers and leaves images from scraps of cardstock I had laying around and adhered to the corner of the frame along with the shaped flower. I glued a sequin and glossy dot to the center of the flower. 
I covered the inside with patterned cardstock. Next I punched holes in either end of the spine and threaded elastic thread through the holes and tied off.
I threaded through the holes polka dotted ribbon and before tying off I added a mini tassel.
I decorated the front and back of a mini notebook (these can be purchased at the Dollar Tree and Walmart) with the same Fabulous Paper Collection and added three glossy dots to the cover too.
All I had to do was slide the notebook under the elastic. Easy Peasy! If you would like to see more fun projects from the Inspiration Team hop on over to Eileen Hull’s blog which you can find HERE

ClearSnap: Mum Planner Ink Pen Clip and Fall Notebooks

Hi everyone! Today I two projects in one blog post I would like to share. I created an ink pen clip holder and decorated mini notebooks for the Woodsy Autumn Planner. You can find the Woodsy Autumn blog post HERE in case you missed that.

For the first project I’ll start with directions for the ink pen holder. 

I cut three medium, three small flowers and two leaves from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecutsinked a glass tray with Sunshine and Golden Blend Inks and add water to ink. I laid each flower into the ink mixture, removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray off and ink with Leaf and Frog Blends Inks, add water to ink, laid both leaves into mixture, removed and let dry.

I inked Art Daubers with Butter and Candied Yam Ink and lightly ink the edges of each flower. I added a drop of Zip Dry Adhesive to the center of each flower. Laid each flower on top of each other, pinch in the center, shaped and added a gem to the center of the flower. I folded each leaf down the center and edge with Candied Yam ink, adhered each leaf to the back of the flower with a loop of hemp cording. 

I cut a 1 7/8 inch piece of stretch elastic and adhere each end with Fabri-Tac adhesive to each side of a binder clip. But sure to tuck the elastic up under the “rolled” metal of each side of the clip.

I adhered the flower to elastic loop  and let dry. 

For my second project I cut patterned cardstock to fit the front and back of each notebook and I inked edges of cardstock with Leather Ink and adhere to the front and back of each notebook. I also cut two strips of cardstock and ink edges with Leather ink and glue to the center of each notebook.
cut two wreath diecuts from cardstock and adhere to the front of each notebook. Punch two circles and two seal circles, ink edges with Leather ink and glue to the corner of each wreath diecut. Next I cut two mini flowers, one small flower and a leaf sprig from Crinoline Fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts

I inked a glass tray with Melon and Golden Blend Inks, add water and lay the mini flower diecuts into the mixture, remove and let dry. Ink edges of the mini flowers with Butter ink.
I cleaned the glass tray and ink with Leaf Blends Ink, add water and lay the leaf sprig into ink mixture. Remove and let dry. Ink edges of the leaf sprig with Mint ink.
I adhered a monogram to one of the notebooks and add a mini flower and cut one leaf from the leaf sprig and adhere both on top of the monogram. Glue a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower.
The other wreath notebook apply a drop of glue to the center of the medium flower and pinch and shape. Add a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower along with a leaf from the sprig and loop some hemp cording and glue both the front of the notebook. Also add a mini flower with a gem in the center of the flower next to the medium flower.

The other two notebooks I stamped the words “ideas” and “notes” with the Leather Ink onto patterned cardstock, cut out and adhere one word to each cover. 

I adhered Ric Rac on the front of each cover. Punch two butterflies from patterned cardstock and add next to each word and added gems down the center of each butterfly. 

Next I slid each of the notebooks underneath the elastic cording of the planner.

I clipped the ink pen holder to one of the notebooks and added an ink pen.

As always if you have any questions about these projects please let me.

Eileen Hull: Peaches and Cream Felt Planner Journal

Hi everyone! I’m back again with another project using Eileen Hull’s Wrapped Journal Diecut but this time I made a planner out of it!
Before placing felt over the Wrapped Journal Diecut I placed the Movers and Shapers Floral Cutout Die inside the opening of the wrapped journal diecut  and cut out the journal. Then I used the Magnetic Platform and placed the Movers and Shapers Scallop Border Diecut and place the end of the wrapped journal over the scalloped die and cut.

Next I cut Tan Paper Leather to fit the inside of the journal and adhered with Fabri-Tac adhesive. This will make the journal sturdier. 

Next I cut a piece of pleather to fit over the paper leather and adhered to the inside.

I forgot to add that before adhering the paper leather and pleather to the inside I adhered tulle behind the floral design. The buttons I threads and tied off on the backside and adhered to the center of each floral cutout.

I adhered Pom Pom trim and lace to the outer inside edge of the journal.

I strung the spine with elastic cording and the closure I threaded elastic cording through the button and then sewed to the middle of the spine. I also added bits of lace, trim and ribbon to the spine.

I purchased a pack of three mini composition notebooks from the Dollar Tree and covered the front and back with cardstock.

I used an assortment of chipboard embellishments from my stash to decorate the covers. 

I cut a file folder down and created a place to hold stitchy notes and washi tape samples.

I cut from white cardstock the Credit Card Sleeve Diecut, embossed with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder and lightly inked over the embossed images. I adhered the sleeve to the folder, cut a tag to fit the slot and wrapped washi tape around the tape in case I wanted to decorate the planner on the go.

I created a pen loop to hold an ink pen inside the planner. I cut flowers and a leaf from felt with the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and adhered together and added a gem to the center of the flower.

I wrapped a small piece of elastic around the pen I am going to use in my planner and cut. Next I adhered each side of the elastic on either side of the binder clip, adhere the felt flower to the side of the binder clip and clip to the folder or notebook and add the pen.

I used motivational saying on the covers of the notebooks.

As always if you have any questions about this planner please let me know. Also if you haven’t had a chance to see what Eileen’s Inspiration Team has been up to you can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.
