Fun Punchboard Project

Hi Everyone! I hope hat the weekend has been good to you so far.
I have a fun envelope punchboard project for you today. I ran across this video a few weeks ago and knew that I had to share it. It comes from Septeria18 on YouTube. I made a few today and really love they way they turned out. These little paper spools will work great for some of the trims that I sell in the Etsy shop.

Authentique "Always" Wedding Journals

Happy Sunday my friends.
I have 4 new journals that I made over the last couple of weeks using the Authentique "Always" collection. What a fabulous paper line!
I did a whole lot of layering in these journals as I wanted them to be mostly for journaling, yet still very elegant and dainty.

My First Zine

Made my first zine. It was actually fairly easy to make, which surprised me. I have had this on the to-do list for some time and finally got around to making one. There are a ton of videos on YouTube on how to construct the zine if you're interested.

Fun Flip Book

Happy Friday!!!
I hope you all have a FANTASTIC day!! I have a fun flip book that I made today using a tutorial from Wendy's Journal Adventure .  I used some vintage recipe library cards and covered them in newsprint paper bag. I also rounded the corners, stitched around the card as well as inked the edges. I added a couple of fabric pockets with tags. What a fun and quick project.

Mini Friendship Notes

Happy Sunday!!
I order some little vintage glassine envelopes a week or so ago and received them at the end of this last week. They are so wonderfully discolored from age that I fell in love with them immediately and knew I was going to have to make something with them. So I made these little friendship notes with some Pinterest images that I had on hand. I added a little piece of vintage paper on the inside for journaling.

So much FUN!
