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 Journal simple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.


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


A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.


Nicole Wright Designs  Fallen Blossom is 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 some paper dolls ;)


Flip spots for stamping and writing.


Pages of stuffing, inking and stamping.


Thanks for stopping by and seeing my latest Eileen Hull Journal.  Check out the rest of the Inspiration Team as they share their journal projects.

I made a Christmas Drum!  I think I love this one more than myChristmas Village!  One of my "ENABLER" crafty peeps told me about a Christmas Drum she pinned on Pinterest, click HERE to see the Pin.  I fell in love!  I started collecting the goodies a couple weeks ago and finally sat down to build it yesterday.  It only took a couple hours and it was a blast to create.  Check out this beautiful Christmas Drum. I started with a teaser post on my newInstagram account.  I inked up these TH Bottle Brush trees with re-inkers!  I started with this round hat box I found at Michaels for 50% off.  I like it because it was already a vintage paper box.  Simply Stunning!  I made a line all the way around the base of the lid.  This way I know where to stop when adding the beads.  If you don't stop you won't be able to close the lid.  Don't worry, you won't see the line.  I used some twine and tape to give me an idea where the beading was going to be put.  It's a r…
