Creative Journal & A New Kind of Flower

The second project from this month's club was this Creative Journal which we made from scratch and sewed together with some twine (trimmed in the new cherry cobbler tulle!)  The journal was stamped with the Ex Libres background stamp and we inked the edges for a vintage feel.  I thought this would be a good project for club so that we could all jot notes in our journals (if we liked) throughout the year on things we learn or things that inspire it's nice to be able to just make a journal as opposed to buy one and then revamp it/decorate it:)

The flower was the other new technique we is made out 4 scallop circles punched...3 from the large punch and one form the regular punch...all you do is slit into them with your slits (ever 2nd scallop), then spray them lightly with water and curl the 2 scallops around a skewer and let it try...layer them up...add a vintage brad and adorable 3 dimensional flower!
