New Video and Etsy Listing!!

Hi Everyone!  As promised, here is the new journal video and Etsy Listing!!  I hope you are having a lovely Monday!

Small Vintage Style Junk Journal with a Leather Like Spine

Hi Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I wanted to share my latest journal with you that I completed tonight.  I will be doing a video on this one a little later today and will post that as well.  I will also be listing this journal in my Etsy Shop, so if you like what you see so far, keep an eye out for that!

This is a hardcover vintage style junk journal, with a "leather like" spine, which is a textured vinyl. The spine piece wraps around the front and back and has the same decorative edge on both sides. There is a braided cream colored trim that adorns the spine.  There is a heart punched on the front cover with parchment paper and book paper within for a sweet detail.

The closure is a vintage button and elastic. 

It has 3 sewn in signatures.  All of the pages have been hand dyed for that vintage look and feel.  Several pages have divider tabs that are merely included for decorative purposes.  You could add a journal tag to those pages using the letter as the first word in your sentence.  For instance, "T" could stand for "treasure" or "togetherness."   There are 138 total pages, counting front and back.

The divider cards have been stained and dry embossed as well.  These are cute little pockets on several of the pages.  

There are heart punch-outs on several pages as well as, stained parchment paper. 


There are several pockets and tuck spots throughout the journal, 36 total.

On the front and back inside covers, there are pockets with a sewn detail around the edge.

This is the back cover.  This journal will come with several page tabs in various shapes and sizes.  I hope you've enjoyed this journey through my newest book.  Please stop by later to see the video and Etsy listing!  Thanks again for visiting me today!

Hi Everyone!  I just wanted to share my most recent videos with you!  These are journals that I had listed in my Etsy Shop and sold very quickly.  I am currently working on a few more to list, and I will be sharing my newest journal in a separate post.  I hope you can stop by my channel and if you're not already subbed, I hope you consider subscribing.  Have an awesome week!  Thanks for stopping by!

Wedding Guest Book! Design Team Project for Ephemera's Vintage Garden

Hi Everyone!  Happy Sunday and Happy Spring!  Thank you for stopping by for a visit today!  I wanted to share with you a beautiful Wedding Guest Book I made using Ephemera's Vintage Garden's, printable journal kit called Love is Chic, found HERE.  This is a gorgeous journal kit, very soft and feminine, perfect for a wedding guest book.  Warning, this will be a very picture heavy post!


It measures 5-3/4 x 7-3/4 x 2-3/4".  It has a chipboard cover and spine.  I wrapped the chipboard with cream colored cardstock (Recollections brand from Michaels) and inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye.  I then stained a piece of curtain lace with the same ink and wrapped the cover with the lace.  I used the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die to cut flower shapes from the same lace and dyed those with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Tea Dye.  I cut white felt from the Tattered Florals Die and stained those with Distress Stain in Bundled Sage.  I crocheted some flowers and dyed those with Distress Stain in Victorian Velvet.  I dyed paper doilies with Tea Dye.  The image is from a free printable from Ephemera's Vintage Garden called, Ephemeral Rose Cards.  They can be found HERE.  I used a distress tool from Making Memories to rough up the edges of the journal card, which is matted on the same cream colored cardstock and inked with Tea Dye.  I used various lace trims from Joann Fabrics.  The one on the spine I dyed with Tea Dye.The one on the cover with the bead work is it's original color. 

I hand dyed some seam binding for the closure with Tea Dye.  


I hand tore all of the pages and inked all the edges with Tea Dye.  
 

Here are some close ups of the cover.




Here is the inside of the front cover and the first page.  I used some organza ribbon from my stash to wrap around the brown piece of paper as well as the envelope.  Everything you see here is from the journal kit, except the label die, which is from Tim Holtz.  The brown piece of paper is actually meant to be used as the cover pieces from the kit.  I used dew drops in the centers of all the flowers. 


All of the pages are in signatures and I sewed them in to the spine.  In the center of each signature is an envelope that looks like this (picture below).  I dyed the paper doilies with Distress Stain in Victorian Velvet, as well as the lace flowers cut from the Tattered Florals Die.  The heart is from the journal kit. 


These are the tags from the envelope.


They look like this...



Look how gorgeous this paper is!!





All of the printed designs are glued back to back and I left them open at the top so they can be used as pockets.  


Here is a view of the book open, and also the journal cards from Ephemeral Rose.


So that is my Wedding Guest Book!  I am soooo happy with the end result even though I made some mistakes along the way.  Everything is fixable!!  I hope you enjoyed seeing my journal and I hope it inspires to make your own.  This kit can be used for Spring themed journals, summer journals, guest books, mini albums... you're only limited by your imagination!  :)  Thanks for stopping by today!!  A video showcasing this guest book is coming soon!
