Good morning friends, Kim here with my next DT project for White Rose Crafts. This time I have created a mini paper bag journal using the Lavender Hills paper from the WRC Shop.
I used a larger piece of coordinating paper from my stash to wrap around the whole journal for the cover, and gave all the pages and ephemera some Milled Lavender Distress Oxide to colour the edges of the papers.
For the actual journal part, I started off with 5, 2 pound bags I purchased from a friend's live sale. I folded the bags in half and then I covered each of the bags in the paper.
Once that was done, I was able to use the Lavender Hills Die Cut Ephemera Sheet and the 12 x 12 Ephemera sheet to decorate the inside of the journal.
I used the larger ephemera pieces for journaling cards for the opening of the paper bags, which makes wonderful side pockets in the journal.
I added some of the Craft Creations Lilac Bows for decoration along with some fussy cut pieces from the Ephemera sheet.
I also used some of my Tim Holtz Paper dolls from my stash and some of the small talk sentiments to the journal. I bound the journal with some white embroidery floss, it worked great!
The ends of the bag, when folded, make great tuck spots for more of the ephemera!
I created pockets on the front and back of the journal using more of the gorgeous paper and ephemera.
I added some lace to the edge of the journal as well, you can see there is tons of room in this little book for photos or writing.
I also used some of the Delicate Flower embellishments on the front of the journal.
I finished off the journal with some hand dyed bridal trim from my stash and some Want To Scrap Adhesive Pearls in Lavender.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you have found some inspiration here!
