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.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...

Creating a Background with Sprays and Stamping

The snow is melting and the birds are coming home.  While there may be a couple feet of snow still on the ground a glimpse of spring can be found in this refreshing card.  A quick look how to create your own background.

Inking  the leaf border stamp and filling up the first layer is quick.  I sprayed the second layer with dylusions sprays and used a sponge to ink through the matching stencil.

Apply ink again to the large leaf border and stamp right over top of the stencil to create dimension.  I coloured the butterflies with distress markers and wow do they pop!

What a beautiful background.

I love the layered look of the stenciled leaves and stamping.

Popping up the butterflies.

Hello spring!

Sprays and inks go a long way to creating a stunning background.  Look around at what you have a create your own spring paper.
