The centerpiece of the cover is a Julie Nutting Doll. I used the Golden Days Collection from Fancy Pants on the project.
I also want to share a few pics of the inside. This is the front of the first signature. Can you see the tabs running down the right side? I used Eileen's die to cut them out of patterned paper.
I hand stamped the tabs and added a bit of transparency with washi tape, creating a flip page.
Throughout the journal I used bits of this washi tape from Jillibean Soup. I love the sentiments and the bright coral(?) color
I also added pockets and tags.
In addition to the washi I combed through my stash of wood embellishments (yes i am an addict!) and added little bits here and there.
This is the center of the signature. You can see the embroidery floss that I used to attach the signatures to Eileen's Journal. The die cuts those holes for you so you just have to thread your cording through the holes. Mine is very simple but I have seen samples with some amazing binding stitches!
More pockets and tags...
Fancy Pants also has a coordinating stamp set for the Golden Days Collection. The chevron arrow was one that I used a few times in this project.
I added 2 more signatures to the journal. Here's a peek at the front covers:
Eileen's blog for more inspiration. The Design Team have been sharing their projects for the whole month of April and the creations have been amazing!
You can buy your die directly from Eileen's Etsy Shop. She has several of her products available there so be sure to look around!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
