Decoupage Journal Cover DIY

Hey everyone! Today I am playing along with the Designer Crafts Connection’s Decoupage Link Party Blog Hop! I’m sharing a simply journal cover I created using the Pocket Notebook Diecut, Botanical Tissue Paper and Mod Podge.
I started by cutting out two Pocket Notebook diecuts covers from Mat Board.
I cut two pieces of the Botanical Tissue Paper larger than the pocket notebook covers. I applied the Mod Podge to the covers with a sponge brush and then carefully placed the tissue paper onto the covers. 
I also slowly worked the air bubbles out and what didn’t rub out disappeared with two more coats of Mod Podge.
I adhered both halves of the cover together, added a decorative oval diecut and a chipboard flower sticker to the cover.
I adhered patterned cardstock to the inside covers and spine. I also strung the spine with elastic cording to hold notebooks and closure.
There you have it! I plan on adding junk journal style notebooks to this at a later date so stay tuned. Be sure to hop along with the rest of the DCC team and see how they used decoupage in their projects. You can  the post HERE. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Finding Happiness Pocket Notebook

Hi everyone! I want to share my other journal I created for Eileen Hull for her trip to the UK in September using her newest Pocket Notebook Diecut.
First I gathered up an assortment of Maggie Holmes cardstock Collections to create this journal. Then I applied Adhesive Sheets to the front and back of Matboard before placing cardstock on the front and back of the matboard.
I placed the Pocket Notebook Diecut on top of the matboard and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut two covers out.
I lined up the holes on the spine where only three holes showed both on the top and bottom and adhered together. I cut cardstock to fit both the inside and outside of the spine. I used a Crop A Dile to punch holes and set eyelets in the spine. I also added the elastic cording and tied off inside the spine.
I used the Nestled Borders Rectangles Diecut, stickers, pom pom trim, heart and gem and a couple of flowers and a leaf from Eileen’s Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts to decorate the cover of the journal. If you haven’t checked out the rest of the Inspiration Team’s projects on Eileen’s blog you can find those posts: HERE, HERE, HEREHERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Genuine Vintage Pocket Notebook

Hi everyone! I want to share this Vintage Baseball Pocket Notebook I create for Eileen to take on her trip to the UK. Also I thought why not share since the World Series will be starting soon.

I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of the Mat Board, placed the cardstock on both sides, run through the Diecut Machine and I cut two covers out. 
Also the cardstock I used is from Authentique, it’s retired and I can’t find the package to tell you what the name of the collection is…sorry. 😔 I added a “one of a kind” journaling card from the same collection to the cover. And I fussy cut from another journaling card two baseball players which I adhered one player to the front corner of the cover and added three black gems to each corner of the one of the “one of a kind” journaling card .

The back of the journal I adhered the other baseball players and a couple of  banners to the lower corner.
I lined the last hole up on the spine and adhered together. For a more finished look I cut another piece of wood patterned cardstock and adhered to the spine and set Eyelets in each of the holes.
I ran the elastic cording through the button holes and the middle holes on the spine and tied off. I did add a little adhesive to the back of the button to keep it from sliding around.
I ran elastic cording through the holes on the spine and tied off inside the cover. There is eight elastic bands that can hold journals.
I forgot to add that I applied an adhesive sheet to the back of piece of cardstock and then I cut the word “journal” out from the Journaling Words Diecuts and placed it at the top of the journal cover. There you have it a completed journal cover and all that needs to be added is notebooks. Be sure to hop on over to Eileen Hull’s blog to see what the rest of her Inspiration Team has created! You can find this month’s posts: HERE, HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions please let me know.
