Been thinking, cutting and collecting for this project a couple weeks, Marion at apieceof craft.com has a challenge for an laser printer...She has the prettiest journals. I keep this mini near my table because I keep adding to it. So it may never be finished......This is the first hand bound project I have tried. I haven't decided what I will use it for, yet, but I love it and want to make more.

The front cover is on chipboard using Marion's printed album cover, Modge Podge, drywall tape. I highlighted the oval with a gellyroll pen (just has a hint of shimmer), used Maya Road organza trim for the flowers used a cricut die for the bottom border and highlighted it as well.

I ran alot of the pages trying to figure out how to get them to print both sides so they turned out very vintage and I stamped over them. The corner pocket is folded down. The tape measure (Simon Stamp kit) hides the drywall tape very well.



 Here some of the flowers are two-dimensional, stamped a tea dyed tag with a rose to put a pic on the back.


The smitten, dragonfly and butterfly is from Stampin Up




Two dimentional flowers again

 I stapled(Tim Holtz Stapler) lace (yard sale) to hold journal pieces and the butterfly stamped on Manilla Paper from Measure of Life, Stampin Up

The tall stamp, dress form is from Inkadoo, the sticker is from Paper Artsy (yard sale), the flourish is chipboard (ebay) and I only glued half so it could hold a picture.

 Whispers from Miss Elisabeth velum stickers
 I used muslin paper for these and printed them smaller.
 I'm not sure where I got this stamp and paper (probably a garage sale)
The chalk board is two-dimensional also.



 I love this music stamp used Distressed ink sage and honey. Cherry blossom stamp from Magenta...I pressed geraniums in my Big Shot and used Tim Holtz honey ink to highlight the edges and middles of the flowers.
 another Maya Road flower in gray... chicken wire page cut for pocket...below prima flowers. The birds on a branch and postcard stamp I bought in Zoar, Ohio








Binding took awhile to get the hang of but I'll do better next time. The End.
