A new journal, a freebie and tag Friday at A Vintage Journey

Hello friends, it's hard to believe it is the last Friday of July already. Here's hoping everyone has managed to stay safe and well!
Today I have a number of things to share, as it is tag Friday today over at A Vintage Journey,
let me start with that. I made this rather grungy tag to become part of an Autumn (sort of) themed journal.

Below some details of the tag, I made the background with a mix of Distress colours, did some stamping and then added some die cuts, cut from Kraft card, and an embellishment from my stash that I coloured a sort of coppery colour with Treasure Gold paste.

Now the journal that goes along with the tag is an A5 sized Junk Journal, I'll show you just a few of the pages, there are in fact many more, but I don't want to make this post too long.
Here first of all is the cover, it is decorated with some real dried flowers and leaves and a wax seal.
Below some of the inner pages, like usual with this type of journal, most of the pages are coffee stained printer paper, and then I added a mix of digital images, papers, ephemera, paper napkins and stamping and stenciling.

As you can see, there are lots of pockets, additional tags and journaling cards.

And then finally the bit, that I know many of you have been waiting for, - the freebie. It's nature themed I suppose you could say, and will go along well with some of my latest collections in my Etsy shop
There are journal cards, embellishments and words, enjoy!

Like usual, if you want the hi resolution version for printing, just email me (details in sidebar under contact me)

Well, that's it for today, happy crafting, thanks for your visit and stay safe and well!

A little fold er/notebook and a freebie

Hello friends, hope you are all keeping well! Nearly a month has passed already since I last posted here, and since it is Friday, I thought it was probably time to share a little project and a freebie once again, as I know how many of you like these.
So here first of all, the project with some brief descriptions:
Here you can see the outside of the folder which was made from a brown file folder. I cut it to about 6 1/2 inches high, trimmed of the tab and then folded it concertina style, into 4 equal parts more or less, each measuring about 4 3/4 inches wide. I numbered each of the panels and then cut the papers I wanted to use to size and inked all the edges. The reason I numbered all the panels, is because each one is slightly different in size, and I measured the papers one at the time and numbered them too, thus making sure they all fitted. Hope this makes sense. I then adhered them to all the panels of my folder.
Next I created a little notebook, slightly smaller than the folder, out of a mix of printed papers and coffee stained papers. I sewed them together with a 3 hole pamphlet stitch into the actual folder.
Here you can see one of the inside pages.
On this photo you can see some of the panels and on the left the back of the little notebook.
Here you and see how on some of the panels I added pockets, which I then filled with the tags, journaling cards and ephemera you can see below.

Here are some of the other panels on the back of the folder when they are folded out.
And the photos above and below show some close ups of the pockets decorated with some elements of the freebie.
The papers I used to decorate this folder are all from the Garden Grunge Collection in my Etsy shop, they match the freebie, but of course you can use that with any other papers too.

Like usual, this is just the low resolution image of the freebie. If you want the high res. version for printing, please email me (see sidebar) and I will send it to you. As you can see there are little tags, tabs to add to tags or journaling cards, postage stamps, and some bits to fussycut and decorate your projects. Enjoy and like always, thank you for visiting!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
