I hope your Monday isn’t too bad and you are having a nice day…………….
Today is my Monday off, after quite a busy fortnight. I am #stayathome today and crafting, watching a couple of DVD’s and chillax’n…………. I just popped in to share with you a super cute mini album that I made with a lovely lady and her group on FaceBook. It was so much fun to make with her.
I used all new Stampin Up Products that are available now. There is a bit of a delay on shipping some items, but the Warehouse is doing a great job on this, to keep us informed and able to get products. I followed the instructions for the mini-album and used a Black 8.5 x 11 Cardstock to cut down for the pages.
I used the gorgeous Honey Bee stamp set and the Detailed dies for easy cutting out of the stamps.
This is the Golden Honey Bee Designer Speciality Paper I had to use for the page embellishments, like the tags, pockets etc. The gold tones on the paper are perfect.
The front cover I used some of the gorgeous stamps in the set. I couldn’t go past the honeycomb die on the background and the super cute beehive. The bees were stamped and die cut, and the detail of the bee is beautiful.
If you are interested in any of these products, please feel free to contact me here or you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for some more craft fun I am working on!
I hope you are having a lovely weekend. In between being an Essential worker here in Aus, I am staying at home. #stayathome
I was watching Johana Clough “HERE” on her YouTube channel and she made a fun Journal. I thought that would be perfect for a Cookbook for myself to use in the kitchen. It’s not too big and I can have separate recipe categories.
I had eight spare notebooks that I didn’t use awhile ago for a project so I got them out and adhered them all together, one on top of the other. I glued two at a time, then all together with white PVA glue. I then did, as Johanna had and used some fabric to bind them together. I just made sure I had plenty of glue on the spine and under the fabric when I attached it.
I put a couple of heavy books on to of my journal so it would stay together while the glue dried. You can see the covers of the exercise books buckled a bit but that doesn’t worry me as they will be covered up. I also added washi tape to each side of the books to give the spine a bit more strength.
Today I have made some sections using pattern papers from the collections, to divide them up in my journal. I covered each of the joining covers with some pattern paper and that made dividers. This is the first pages inside. I made a pocket on the left with some spare journaling cards and a bit of embellishment, with the first Catagory for Notes.
As you can see above in the slide show I have made the other dividers the same but with a different mix of the two collections. I used stickers and die cuts to embellish them.
On the backs of a few of the dividers, I adhered a clear 6×8 page protector. These are to hold recipes that I cut from magazines until I get a min to put them in their section. I also have some of mums handwritten ones I want to include.
Above, you can see what you can create from something that looked pretty ordinary into your own personal Journal. You could do this project for anything you want to record. This probably cost me about $10 to make with what I already used from my stash and the few papers etc I used from the kit I bought. It is made to have our family favourite recipes and to the way, I wanted to keep them together for my boys 🙂
This is a look at the tabs I made for it.
I hope you like this project and you hop on over to Johanna’s Channel and have a go at making something for your self.
My next project is a fun journal for me to play and create in with a lovely group on FB called “Isolation Days Journal” Just some fun ladies getting together and creating while they #stayathome I am also playing along with a new Scrapbooking group created by the lovely Fiona Kenward to get some scrapping done!!
Stay Tuned and thanks for stopping by x
