Southern Charm Vintage Mini Journal/Album

Hello there!

I've got a beautiful and very feminine Journal to share with you today!  It's a printable journal designed by Jennifer at Jenofeve Designs and it was lots of fun to make.

*click on the photos to enlarge them*

The journal is 6 3/8" tall x 4 1/4" wide and has a 1 3/4" spine.  It has 7 signatures with a total of 96 pages, front and back.  The signatures are hand sewn and bound to the covers using
a Coptic stitch.  I coffee stained the card stock that "sandwiches" the pages in the journal and it smells yummy!  The ribbon is Snug Hug seam binding that I dyed with Dr. Ph Martin's Bombay India Ink.

Below is a collage of photos that will show you the front and back covers, as well as the both sides of the album.  You can see the Coptic Stitch I did on the spine of the album.

Here are a few of the pages within the album/journal.  (It can be either one, depending on how you choose to use it.)

The photo on your left shows the inside of the back cover.
The photo on your right is a sampling of the tags and envelopes
you will find withing the album/journal.

You can find Jen of eve Designs here on YouTube.  You can find her Etsy store here.
You can find her here on Facebook.  If you request her to accept your friendship, you will have access to her wonderful freebies. 

Thank you for stopping by to see what I'm making!  Please, come again.

More fun with templates!

Yes, I'm still enjoying making
albums, but this time I added a box.

I used Jennifer Harrison's
(Jen of Eve Designs)
 "Keepsake Box and Mini Album" templates

you can find them here on Etsy.

The templates come with printable base pages,
pockets, flaps, belly bands and tags and are
super easy to
use to create a project using
whatever DP you want to use!

(please click on photos to enlarge them)

I made the large box and album

The album has 3 base pages.

Front of box

 This box is 7 1/8" x 6 3/4" x 2 7/8"
Box with lid open,
revealing the mini album inside

Album sitting in front of box lid
The album measures 7 1/8" x 4 1/2" x 2 1/8"

Inside front cover (pocket) and first page.

On left, is a flap which covers most of the
back side of the first page.  On the right, is the
front of the 2nd page of the album.

On the left, you see the flap is now open, revealing
that back side of base page 1.

This is a close-up of the front of base page 2.

Base page 2-B and 3A

On the left is the back of base page 3.
On the right is the inside back cover with a belly band.

I made this album to house photos of our

fur baby, Riley, who is now 2 years old now.  Riley is a toy poodle
who grew to be an oversized Toy.  ;)

This album has plenty mats, tags, and inserts to hold
plenty of our photos of Riley!

You'll find Jennifer on Facebook, here.
You will find her YouTube channel, here.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog!
