A New Treat for My Creative Outlet!
Well with 2013 almost over, I found a new fun scrapbooking focus. I have decided to work on tag journals. I have never been interested but working with these great Theresa Collins collections have changed my mind. I am having a blast and loving all of the great embellishments and papers that the Happy set includes. It is a new day, a new year is on its way!
I found these great kraft paper covered booklets at the flea market for 25 cents each. I love them. They even included a kraft paper covered black ink pen . I felt that it was time to dress it up and Theresa Collins inspired me with her wonderful line called “You are My Happy”! I love all of the great embellishments that she has created in this wonderful series!
This Journal has a medallion with a pocket filled with tags for adding all of my inspirations, and secret smiles! I used a paper towel roll to create a pocket inside of this medallion.
Here are my supplies:
Kraft Paper Journal
Fabric and batting to be placed on the front of the journal
Sizzix Tag die
Craftwell eBosser ( my favorite)
Tim Holtz Distress inks for edge applicatons.
here we go!
I stretched the fabric with batting under it on the surface of the front cover. Next I cut and covered the inside of the front cover. I love this book..
I used the distress inks to add richness to the edges of my wonderful center embellishment. I love the blush color.
I love my sizzix tag die and can make up to eight layers of pearl paper in it. I love these tags. Theresa Collins had the most wonderful brads to complete my tag labels!
I was able to cover my pen too! I am loving this!
Inside front cover and first page with another tag booklet and also a floral pocket. I can’t wait to do more work and fill my book as I go along. I hope that this coming year brings all of us great opportunities and always the richness of great friends!
Happy New Year!
