DIY Journal Cover

Friday, January 2, 2015
Happy New Year to all, I can't believe it's 2015 already! Here I wish everyone a new year filled with happiness and good health, god bless you through out the year. This is my first post for 2015 and I want to share this project with you - a journal cover makeover!

Here is the cover of the journal created with Teresa Collins and Spellbinders' dies using Cut 'n' Boss. I especially love the butterfly die from TC very much and have used on many other projects, very versatile and easy to make! If you are also into making a journal cover like this, I have a tutorial for you! 

Tutorial starts here:

Step 1: Prepare an empty journal, mine is from Basic Grey.

Step 2: Choose two 12x12 patterned papers, join/adhere two papers together to form a longer sheet of paper.

 Step 3: Glue the paper to the journal

 Step 4: Trim the excess on all the edges so it fits the journal

Step 5: Closing up all edges/flaps with glue

This is how it looks like

Step 6: Cut burlap paper using Craftwell's Cut 'n' Boss (I used Spellbinders' banner die and the platform combination is A/B/A/Material/Cutting Die/Magnetic Shim/D ).

Step 7:Cut smaller banners with scissor on a glittered card stock

 Step 8: Prepare other die-cut shapes

For the following cut-out, I trim the word "remember" out from the frame

Step 9: Run the cut-outs through Xyron Sticker Maker

Step 10: Embellish the journal with cut-out shapes and alphabet stickers.

The result is shown as below, I hope you like how it turns out! Now starts capturing all the special moments with this journal!
