Rosebud Journal

Hi everyone! It been awhile since my last post but I started phase four of remodeling. First I had to move furniture around and then cover everything in plastic before I could start scraping popcorn off of the ceiling in the den/breakfast nook/kitchen. I would have been finished but I came down with sinus/cold crud and I spent three days very medicated and sleeping on and off but I'm finally feeling better even though I don't sound it...imagine man voice...ick. :-(
Anyway I had started and finished this little journal last month but hadn't got around to photographing it until today so I thought I would share. :-)



I started with Eileen Hull's Passport Diecut which I cut both covers from Matboard.
I wanted six signatures for my journal instead of three like was on the diecut so I created a pattern and used that to cut a spine from the Grey Paper Leather.



I punched holes for the signatures in the Paper Leather and then embossed with Brenda Walton's Floral Tapestry embossing folder (retired) and lightly inked it with chalk ink to bring out the embossing.



I keep the cover simple by only adding some Ric Rac, patterned cardstock and diecuts and the journal sentiment which I printed from the computer.


There are six papers per signature which I used a mix of scrapbook paper, doilies, mini paper bags, envelopes and cards. I used grey cording to attach the papers to the spine.



Now this little journal is ready for journaling, doodles and photos ( perfect size for Instax photos). 



If you have any questions about this project let me know. Now back to working on these ceilings. :-p


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!
