Eileen Hull: Peaches and Cream Felt Planner Journal

Hi everyone! I'm back again with another project using Eileen Hull's Wrapped Journal Diecut but this time I made a planner out of it!


Before placing felt over the Wrapped Journal Diecut I placed the Movers and Shapers Floral Cutout Die inside the opening of the wrapped journal diecut  and cut out the journal. Then I used the Magnetic Platform and placed the Movers and Shapers Scallop Border Diecut and place the end of the wrapped journal over the scalloped die and cut.


Next I cut Tan Paper Leather to fit the inside of the journal and adhered with Fabri-Tac adhesive. This will make the journal sturdier. 


Next I cut a piece of pleather to fit over the paper leather and adhered to the inside.


I forgot to add that before adhering the paper leather and pleather to the inside I adhered tulle behind the floral design. The buttons I threads and tied off on the backside and adhered to the center of each floral cutout.



I adhered Pom Pom trim and lace to the outer inside edge of the journal.


I strung the spine with elastic cording and the closure I threaded elastic cording through the button and then sewed to the middle of the spine. I also added bits of lace, trim and ribbon to the spine.


I purchased a pack of three mini composition notebooks from the Dollar Tree and covered the front and back with cardstock.


I used an assortment of chipboard embellishments from my stash to decorate the covers. 


I cut a file folder down and created a place to hold stitchy notes and washi tape samples.


I cut from white cardstock the Credit Card Sleeve Diecut, embossed with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder and lightly inked over the embossed images. I adhered the sleeve to the folder, cut a tag to fit the slot and wrapped washi tape around the tape in case I wanted to decorate the planner on the go.


I created a pen loop to hold an ink pen inside the planner. I cut flowers and a leaf from felt with the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and adhered together and added a gem to the center of the flower.



I wrapped a small piece of elastic around the pen I am going to use in my planner and cut. Next I adhered each side of the elastic on either side of the binder clip, adhere the felt flower to the side of the binder clip and clip to the folder or notebook and add the pen.


I used motivational saying on the covers of the notebooks.



As always if you have any questions about this planner please let me know. Also if you haven't had a chance to see what Eileen's Inspiration Team has been up to you can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.


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