This is an art journal I made for a dear friend
she is not well and I wanted something to make
I made it about 8" by 8".It is covered in lace, flowers ,ribbon and bling.
This was a fun journal to make, I love soft colors, lace, ribbon, so it came together quite easy, once I decide which way to go.
|Inside pages waterfall on the right for journaling and pictures|
Left pockets and tags.
|This is one of my favorite pages the flap on the right lifts up|
and there is another flap under with more pockets and tags.
|Pretty little birds print outs from on line, they make such |
|More birdies and roses and pockets and tags..On the right the|
right the wallet has room to add pics or memorabilia.
|Close up of the bird tag and rose pocket.|
|Close up of the flip page, more on line printables.|

The bird tag is cut from glitter paper it doesn't show how pretty it is, it has a pink organdy ribbon.
the hydrangea flower is the top of a large tag and there is a very large tag behind those two.
This was fun to make, I sent it to a dear friend in California.

These are a few of the tags I have attempted, and I must admit they are quite plain compared to some I have seen.
of an add and copied them on my printer.
The Tag on the right with the roses ( roses are one of my favorite flowers and images to work with) features a pocket with another tag inserted in the pocket. The roses are fussy cut from paper by K & C company. I love their feminine touch to their paper line but I can't find it any more.
Tag on the right is another graphic 45 tag using their Ladies diary papers.
Well that is the thought for today. Tags.... they are fun to make and a quick creative outlet, and also they use up scraps that are to precious to toss in the waste bin.

My dear friend Dana is battling breast cancer, I wanted to make something pretty for her to look at and to add her thoughts, pictures or anything she likes.
The cover is a collage of vintage laces, silk ribbon embroidery, hand crafted silk flowers, a velvet strawberry, a pink vintage hankie and battenburg lace. there are some pink fresh water pearls and seed beads for accents
The pages are paper ephemera from found books,cards and some bought paper.
Dana loves roses, so I used them everywhere I could. The ones on the picket fence I fussy cut out of a beautiful paper from K.C. and company. I used vintage wall paper for the photo matt on the right side, and the dress form is a Tim Holts die called alterations.
This gal ( she is a grand mother lol) loves Winnie the poo, so I did my best to include some Winnie, Tigger, and 100 acker woods.
The page on the left is from a book I found at a garage sale. I made lots of pocket for tags, again I fussy cut the roses from a beautiful paper. The butterfly was also cut from a lager paper.
A vintage lace pocket with photo mats, vintage lace trim and a hand made flower with a vintage button, and seam binding leaves.
I used a Spellbinders nestable for the photo mat on the left, it is a pocket for the pink tag. The tea pot is a printable I got from pinterest I think.
The tablet on the right has pages inside to journal on or add pictures. I did the embossing with a Sizzix embossing folder called peacocks and leaves.
More pockets, with cute tags, the left page is some beautiful rose paper, I can't remember where I got it. I used Tim holts vintage photo distress ink to distress the page. On the right is some fab wall paper with big gorgeous roses from my vintage stash, and the bird is a chip board piece I have had for ages.
I love making this for Dana I hope it brings her a moment of joy.
