What a great project. I can see this a very wonderful gift for the right person! Thank you Jan for this fine project!
Hi this is Jan and I'm so excited to share another project with you. I'd rank it as a Beginner project -- it's simple to complete.
This is a gift and should be arriving at a new home shortly. I hope they like it.
I'm enjoying making this mini-albums and journals. They do make great gifts... just saying. :)
I used the recipe and divider cards file from here as the cover and divider pages in this journal.
You'll need white cardstock for your covers and section divider cards and if you wish, some designer paper for your divider cards
journaling paper ( I used some plain copy paper -- cut to size with a paper trimmer)
eBrush (SN adapter)
Spectrum Noir markers
stencils, texture paint and word stamps
Decide on your size and cut your cover and divider cards with your electronic cutting machine. I used the pen tool to write the title and added shadows and cut. Now, to my favorite part of creating these days! PAINTING! I used the eBrush and Spectrum Noir markers to create the background for the cover.
Carefully, trace and cut 3 copies of your stencil -- I'm using Birch Landscape from memoryboxco.com. Once they are cut, adhere them in a stack. ( I used the Xyron to do this job).
The inside dividers are also ebrushed with stencils, texture paste and stamped. I used a free background paper I found online (http://MelStampz.blogspot.com) several years ago.
I used the Xyron machine to add adhesive to the layers of the title and secure on the front of the journal. I used the bind-it-all to secure all the pages.
It's a fun and quick project.
