Remember Today/ DIY Album


Cut 'n' Boss Design Team: Alexia Misson  Cycle 10

Alexia is starting off the year right by creating a journal to write down her goals! See how you can recreate this project below!

Happy New Year to all, I can't believe it is 2015 already! Here I wish everyone a new year filled with happiness and good health, god bless you throughout 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 it 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! 



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 they fit perfectly to 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!
