Tidbits Journal

Hi everyone! I wanted to share my latest journal I created using Eileen Hull's newest Journal Diecut! I absolutely LOVE this diecut! You can create a planner, mini scrapbook or in my case a glue book to keep my leftover tidbits in. 😊


I cut the cover from Leather Paper and put together according to the directions on the packaging.


I adhered patterned cardstock, doilies and lace to the cover. The Tim Holtz Paper doll I added a set of printable butterfly wings that I had leftover from another project and I inked a Bookplate Diecut with Beach ColorBox Blends, added a printed "tidbits" sentiment and Dew Drops to finish the cover.



I added eyelets to dress up the holes before running elastic trim through to hold store bought notebooks.


I sewed a button to the cover and used cording for the closure. Also as you can see I tried my hand at using a hand held sewing machine to add "sloppy" stitching to the cover. I was going to do more stitching but the sewing machine messed up. 😒


I added four notebooks that I had purchased to the journal and now it is ready for the leftover scraps that I seem to accumulate.


Be sure to hop over to Eileen Hull's blog for more journal inspiration from the team! You can find those posts HERE and HERE.


Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:


As always if you have any questions please let me know!


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