Kunin Felt Journal

Going for a simple journal this time.  With all the involved journals I have been making full of tuck spots, pockets and layers of paper I wanted to make a quick journal.  This is quickly and easily done with the House/ Pocket Thinlit Die.  The Inspiration Team is playing with Kunin Felt all month.  
I am not a felt user.  In fact I have never used felt... that I recall anyway.  So what a fun challenge for me.  My crafty bestie click HERE and I were brainstorming what to do and she said make it into a journal!  DING, DING...  

A few quick cuts of the Smokey Felt and Heartfelt Paper. 

I cut the Bird and Butterflies with the felt and paper to layer running the paper through the Create a Sticker.  I cut the more felt with the Broadway die to create HOME for the front.

A helpful tip for cutting felt with thinlits from fellow team member Mitsyana.  Layer a piece of cardstock, felt then thinlit.  This will allow the felt to cut through.  Good to know when you don't cut felt.

Home Sweet Home with this House/ Pocket Thinlit Die journal.

I even created a few tuck spots cut them the Heartfelt Cardstock and stamped with my sentiment stamp, Fallen Blossom.

Ack, look how perfect this flower is!

Some more cuts to make tuck spots and pockets.

Look, there's a hidden journal in the Heartfelt Collection with the House/ Pocket Thinlit Die.

Be sure to check out all the awesome projects and inspiration they are sharing HERE.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
