Are you ready for another DT project? I've bben holding on to this one for a while. AND, I know - you're thinking I misspelled that word in the title of this post, but no; it has great meaning to me.
Journals and mini-albums are on this year's gifting list. This is a gift and should be arriving at a new home shortly. I hope they like it.
I'm enjoying making this mini-albums and journals. They do make great gifts... just saying. :)
I used the recipe and divider cards file from here as the cover and divider pages in this journal. It's the same file used in this post: keeping-tabs
You'll need white cardstock for your covers and section divider cards
journaling paper ( I used some plain copy paper -- cut to size with a paper trimmer)
eBrush (SN adapter)
Spectrum Noir markers
But before we got to that point, my favorite part of creating these days! PAINTING! I used the eBrush to create the background for the cover.
Carefully, trace and cut 3 copies of your stencil -- I'm using Birch Landscape from memoryboxco.com. Once they are cut, adhere them in a stack. ( I used the Xyron to do this job).
The inside dividers are also ebrushed with stencils, texture paste and stamped. I used a free background paper I found online (http://MelStampz.blogspot.com) several years ago.
I used the Xyron machine to add adhesive to the layers of the title and secure on the front of the journal. I used the bind-it-all following manufacturer's instructions to secure all the pages.
