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.

Adventure Awaits Travel Journal

This by far is my favourite release from Eileen's new Sizzix collection.  It's a sizeable Travel Journal...ACK!  This will be a must have die in your collection.  Imagine keepsakes, photos and findings tucked away in this fabulous journal.

I covered the journal with Sizzix Leather Paper for a worn leathery look.


Join me through the pages of my Travel Journal.  My pages are cut in Kraft cardstock and Wild Whispers Adventure Paper Pack.


I used a combination of dies including Wildflowers.    The Dashing Deer die and wildflowers pair well with the Wild Whispers paper pack.  


I stamped the juniper stamp from my Woodland Winter stamp set and added the evergreen die cut.


I made an inside pouch for a stamped layer of notes and such.

I even added a spot to add a pencil.  I fussy cut the grizzly and the "Made in Canada" from the Adventure paper.  Clever...


A little messy stamping on the label.


Attached is some hardware with twine to keep it closed.


Cut with mat board this travel journal is very sturdy.


Full of pages...


Journals are so popular and this die is a game changer.  Be sure to check the rest of the Inspiration Team and how they designed with their journals.
