Gala Glitz-Teal, Water Mister, Hole pricking tool, Dutch Doobadoo modeling paste, Spatula, Crafters Workshop 12 x 12 template TCW261 ART IS,. Inks: Jet Black Archival Ink, Distress Inks: Forest moss, Fired brick, Victorian velvet, Wild honey. Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays: Grab a Guy Gold, Hydrangea Blue, Ponderosa Pines Olive. Other: Hot glue gun, Versa-mark, Fussy Cutting Scissors, Misti stamping tool.

Take the 3 ring journal folder, the modeling paste, spatula and the crafters work shop template to first apply the letter writing to the front cover and spine of the journal folder. Put aside to dry. Returning back to the journal front cover. When the cover modeling paste is dry, spray with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays till you get the color you want. Misting with water if needed. Do this also to the back cover of the journal. Dry the sprays with the heat it tool or you can leave it to air dry.
Take the eyelet die and die cut the frame from a piece of white cardstock. Trim the inside part away from the lace out side edge. Put the inside part aside for later. Bring the Wild honey and Fired brick ink onto the lace frame edge. Taking the scalloped oval die from the small oval die set cut this x 6. Take the Words of Comfort stamp set and find the sentiment with ‘Today I Choose’ on it. Stamp this on one of the ovals with the aid of the misti-stamping tool. Adhere all the layers together with wet glue so you can slide it to match the scalloped edge.
Taking the banner die from the ‘Banners Of Love’ die set and the stamp set ‘Todays Quotes’ and find the stamp with ‘Todays Accomplishments’ Use the two in combination to make the banner. Cut the banner x 3 extra from the card-stock, adhere all together to make a chipboard banner. This is to be sprayed with the gold Lindy’s stamp gang spray later when the spraying is done to the journal cover.
Taking the white card stock and design paper scraps from the Young At Heart paper collection use the classic rose stamp and die set to make the rose petals and leaf swirls. Use the distress inks to bring color to the leaves, rose petal tips and centers. Spray the petals and leaves with the water mister place in the rose mold then put the mold through the die cutting machine twice to get a good press. ( Do not make the paper or card-stock too wet as the paper will break in the mold when you put it through the die cutting machine. If you do make it too wet, leave to dry until they are just moist just as you would when balling to bring shape to the petals with the tools. )  For the blue / green colored flowers, these are sprayed with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays. Spray also the cut away inner part of the eyelet frame that was put aside. Leave to dry a little, as the petals will still be too wet. When ready put these through the machine in the rose mold. Take the petals out of the molds with the aid of the piercer tool found in the flower shaping tool kit. Leave the shaped petals to dry completely. When dry, shape the centers so the petals cup up. Prick a hole in the petal center to you can thread the stamens through the opening.  The stamen colors used are the pink and the green fond in the bright pearl assortment bundle. Take three stamens, fold in half then thread the stems through the whole. Secure with at the back with the hot glue gun. The glue is cooled off, trim the excess stems away.
When the cover is dry, adhere the outer part of the eyelet frame to the center of the cover. Cut the sprayed eyelet center frame in half and adhere each piece below and to the sides of the outer frame. The scalloped frame with the sentiment is spritzed with the Lindy’s stamp gang sprays. The banners colored with the blue spray and the out side highlighted with the gold spray. Mist so the sprays will run a little. Adhere this to the inside of the eyelet frame when dry. Arrange the leaf swirls and flowers to and around the frame. Adhere with the hot glue gun. Apply the wet glue for the Prills and Gala glitz as shown in the photo. Using the tray, apply the Prills and Gala glitz with apply the Prills with a spoon and sprinkle gently so the Prills will not bounce everywhere. The small banner that has been sprayed with gold, adhere to the bottom right of the journal cover.
The pages to go in the journal. My take on it anyway. All the hard work is done, printed and all prettied up for you. All you need to do is, add photos and do some journalling.

Heres the product list and the how to for these pages.

1st Page

 2nd Page

close ups

Had to get some of my own

For the 3rd page, the journaling is written around the photo card-stock matting. Use the sentiment stamps ‘So grateful’ and ‘I will never forget this day’ to stamp with the black ink at the top right and bottom left of the page. The stamp with the verse from Psalm 18:32 is hand written as journaling. Continue to fill the page with doodling and journaling about the event and photos. The page that would follow this page could be used only for journaling about the days events or it could be used to start a record of a new adventure.

You can see I had fun playing around a time.

....And thats only 3 pages! Imagine doing the whole book. Check out what the other DT members have done. Some of them have been good little girls and...done, did....a whole book of this yum goodness!

Inky hugs...till next time


  1. This Album is amazing Susan hugs S xx

  2. Wow...this is “over the top” gorgeous Susan!

  3. Beautiful cover Susan and I love how you used the plane on the inside with those fab photos!

  4. Susan, I have been an admirer of your work on Heartfelt Creations for some time, this is the first time I have visited your wonderful blog and I will be subscribing. LOVING your work, I can feel your heart in the artistry you create and that is really special!!! Those bling stones are special!!! I'm always looking for something special to go in the centers of my flowers and these are perfect! They look like some bling I've been looking at by Queen and Co, these are fantastic! I am so very impressed with your work, and I cannot wait to look at other postings on your blog!

    Kind regards with my best wishes,

    Joanne Lowe

  5. Sorry for the second note, I was thinking that your first posting was from a separate post and I didn't mention it. Really loving the textures used and how ingenious to use prills this way! I just bought those faith-based stamp sets (I think I've bought all that HC has carried in the last several years at least) yesterday along with the wonderful molds and the diary, how could I not! This is my big spending at HC for the year and I look forward to it every year, I was like a child waiting for Christmas Day morning waiting for midnight to come!

    Although my main die-cutting machine is a Gemini by Crafters Companion that will not take the molds, I do have an older electric Big shot that will take them and I just had to have them. I have major nerve and pain issues in my neck, back, arms, hands, and shaping the flowers is my least favorite part of the whole process but I love those flowers, so I think these molds will make a huge difference for me. I'm so excited!

    I think the texture you've created with the writing stencil is FANTASTIC, and your photos probably don't do your work justice, but what I am able to see if really special, your talent is extraordinary, Susan, extraordinary!!! HC has I think the best design team in the paper-crafting world, and your work for them is very special. How you used the sprays, and paints, and prills, and flowers really highlighted that wonderful scripture verse, pure delight to see this!!! It makes me really excited to start playing with this stuff, although I likely won't receive it until sometime in January due to how I have to have the orders sent and when I will be able to pick it up--but I cannot wait to make a ton of flowers!!! I've never created multi-layer flowers and I need to buy a decent glue gun and some of the wonderful stamens--I missed out on getting the large package of them and decided then to wait, unfortunately they have been sold out but I will purchase when they are back in stock--I had found a few small packs of stamens elsewhere in the cake decorating section awhile ago but these are much nicer.

    I so look forward to seeing what you produce in the future for HC and I will be pleased to see whatever you post, whether it's for HC or SU or anything else.

    By the way, I totally agree with your book choices from your profile--I grew up about 1 hour from PEI, and I've been to see "Anne's house" many times. Have you watched the new "Anne" series that is here in Canada on CBC, you can probably find it on YouTube, it's very different from the previous "Anne of Green Gables" series, it is a bit darker but also very interesting, we've just had one season and it's been popular here. It's called "Anne with an E", Apparently this is available on Netflix,and CBC has confirmed there WILL be a season 2, YAY!!! I just found a bunch of YouTubes on behind the scenes and the costumes, etc that likely you would also find interesting...I cannot find any full episodes of it on YouTube, but here is a link to some previews. Probably you already know about this new series but in case you do not, I wanted to share this with you since you're a bit "Anne" person. I tried to copy a link from YouTube to show you the official trailer but I cannot, you can find small bits of the series there, it is considered somewhat edgier than the other series on "Anne", but my friends and I who all love this LM Montgomery series of books have really enjoyed it once we got beyond the fact that the series sometimes deviates from the book at times. I do think you will enjoy it if you haven't watched it yet.

    Sorry for the long note.
