Bird’s of a Feather Flock Together Cork Fabric Notebook

Hi everyone!  Today I’m sharing my Eileen Hull project for the month! This month Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team and Belagio have teamed to do a collaboration. You ask what is Belagio?  Belagio offers cork fabric! I bet the next question is “Where can you find it?” Well, I am getting ready to tell you! 😊  
  • It can be found at Hobby Lobby and they carry packages of cork in 18″ x 15″ pieces in 9 different patterns in the notions department.
  • Also there are two types of cork fabric, a natural and a natural with gold at most Walmart stores in fabric departments and it’s sold by the yard.  
  • As for the entire collection, many quilt and craft shops around the country carry it by the yard and in packaged 18″ x 15″ pieces.  
  •  Online the Belagio cork fabric is available on Walmart.com and Amazon.com.


I started by applying Adhesive Sheets to both sides of a piece of Mat Board. I placed the Cork fabric onto the front cover and the cardstock onto the inside cover, laid the Notebook Diecut on top of that and run through the Diecut Machine


I placed the Geometrics Art Screen (retired) on the front cover and applied Extra Heavy Gel to part of the cover and let dry. I adhered the chipboard frame and added fussy cut flowers and birds from various pieces of cardstocks along with an enamel dot and button to the cover.


I decorated a mini composition notebook with various cardstock, fussy cut images, a scalloped punch and trim.


I punched two holes in the spine with a Crop A Dil and set the holes with eyelets. I added and tied off elastic cording to the inside of the spine. Next I placed the mini composition notebook between the elastic cording and then covered the cording with a piece of ribbon which I tied off on the outside. I added a charm and more ribbon to the spine to finish off the notebook.
If you are interested in purchasing Belagio cork fabric be sure to check out the Walmart or Amazon websites for a wide assortment of fabrics or you can stop by Hobby Lobby and Walmart stores to make a purchase. Also be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog for more inspiration! You can find the latest blog posts HERE and HERE.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Seashell Journal

Hi everyone! I am back with a project I had originally created for ClearSnap using their ColorBox products. If you haven’t heard ClearSnap has closed there doors 😭 which makes me very sad. Their chalk inks where the first I had ever used and I absolutely fell in love with them. I hope that there is some company out there that might buy them out so we all can still enjoy using their wonderful inks, stamps, art screens, etc. I also used Eileen Hull’s Notebook Diecut for this project which is very easy to decorate. 
First off I placed the Mat Board on top of Notebook Diecut and placed between cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineI placed the Geometrics Art Screen on top of the notebook diecut, loaded Art Daubers with the following Misty Meadow Chalk Inks: Ice Blue, French Blue, Ice Jade and Wisteria Chalk Inks and inked the cover. 

Once the notebook was completely covered I removed the art screen.

I removed the cover from a plain store bought notebook, punched two holes (top and bottom) in the spine of the notebook cover and did the same with plain notebook. 

Before tying off  the plain notebook to the inside cover I add a tassel to spine with Jute.

I inked the Faux Postal Rollagraph with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and rolled onto White Cardstock. Next I fussy cut the seashell stamp image out with Scissors. I loaded art daubers with Creamy Brown Chalk Ink from the Soft Pastels Chalk Petal Points, inked the seashell image and edges and adhered to the notebook cover.

I placed white cardstock on top of journal diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts  placed between cutting plates and run through diecut machine. I inked an art dauber with Wisteria Chalk Ink from the Misty Meadow Chalk Inks, inked the journal diecut and adhered above seashell image.

I finished off by punching a hole in front cover of notebook and placing a screw fastener. I cut and tied jute to the jute on spine, tied off and placed around the  Screw Fastener to create a closure. Since I used Eileen’s diecuts in this project you can find more inspiration from the rest of her team HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Mom Journal

Hi everyone! With Mother’s Day right around the corner I wanted to share an easy project that you can make.

I started by placing the Doily/Scalloped Circle stamp from the Cookies Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and ink with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink. I stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper and fussy cut the stamped image out. I inked a glass tray with the following inks: Mulberry and Cabernet Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and added water to each ink. I laid the stamped image into ink mixture and once the image is completely covered I removed and let dry.

I inked the Geranium Pot Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. I inked the glass tray with the following inks: Princess, Cabernet, Tomato, Bumble Bee, Moss and Inchworm Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. I added a little amount of water to each ink. Next I painted the Geranium Pot image. The leaves and stems…Inchworm and shade with Moss Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. The flowers…Princess and the center of each flower with Cabernet Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. The pot…Tomato and shade with Bubble Bee Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. Once dry I fussy cut the geranium pot image out and add Clear Glitter Glue to the center of each flower.

I placed a piece of White Chipboard on top of the Stamp and Photo Storage Scoreboard L Diecut   and placed between plates and run through Diecut Machine. I cut two out. I placed the diecut in the Honeycomb Embossing Folder (retired), between two plates and run through the diecut machine. Emboss second diecut too. 

I cut the flap off the top of both diecuts and cut the first fold off the side of each diecut. I added adhesive to the remaining flap and glue to the other flap. This creates the spine of the notebook.

I measured one inch on either end of spine, mark and punched holes. I also measured one inch on either end of  the back cover, marked and punch holes. I threaded elastic through the holes on the back cover and tie off inside.

I removed the cover from a store bought notebook (I found these notebooks at the Dollar Tree). 

I lined up the notebook on the inside of the cover, marked and punch holes. Next I threaded a needle with thread and sewed the notebook to the inside cover and tied off on the inside. I adhered the doily/scalloped circle and geranium pot images to the front cover. 

I placed a scrap of Adhesive Sheet on the back side of a piece of green cardstock and placed the piece of cardstock on top of the “Moments” diecut from the Floral Arch and Words Diecuts. I placed the diecut between plates and run through the diecut machine. I removed the backing from the adhesive and before placing on cover cut off the “ents”. The elastic can be placed around the front cover to keep closed when not in use.

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
