First, I am thrilled to share that I have been invited to be a designer for Reneabouquets! This is a very big honor for me, and I am super excited to share the beautiful items Renea has in her shop to add just the right touch to your special projects.
In this post I am sharing my first design team project, a beautiful journal made with several laces, boards, flowers, and other goodies from Reneabouquets. Links for all mentioned products will be provided for ease of purchase.
(I used Tonic Studios paper on this project!)
This is the cover of this special journal, where I have used the following:
Tiny Emilie In Paris, Beautiful Board 6 Piece Small Texture Pattern In Purple Laser Cut Chipboard , Beautiful Board Ivy Vines Tuck It In Laser Cut Chipboard, Tiny Treasures Premium Paper To Venus And Back Glitter Glass Dragonflies, Smoky Lavender Curly Roses Mulberry Paper Flowers, Marie Antoinette Pearl & Rhinestone Button Set, White Tear Drop Lace~White 1.5 Inch Wide, White Wide Floral Embroidered Lace (for the spine), The little glass orb hangs from the seam binding, adding a touch of sparkle.
Here is a closeup of how you can alter the flowers using Gawdie Girl Diamond Chunky German Glitter Glass and Moonstone Beautiful beads to give your flowers added shine. The Printed beautiful board has lovely texture without added bulk, and the mulberry gardenias are just gorgeous!!
Here is a closeup of the Tiny Emilie In Paris, Beautiful Board Ivy Vines Tuck It In Laser Cut Chipboard, and To Venus And Back Glitter Glass Dragonfly. It is stunning up close!
The first page in this journal will keep a special picture, housed in the Printed Beautiful Board Medium Lavender Lilac Heart Frame Laser Cut Chipboard. I decided to use the Dark Purple Glass Microbeads to turn this frame into a shaker. The page allows you to place a picture behind the sparkle!
(The heart-embossed paper is from Tonic Studios)
This page reads: Inspire, and it is finished off with a beautiful piece of Trim-Sheer Romance Lace, as well as a Tiny Treasures Watercolor Shabby Sugar Plum Roses Premium Paper Dragonfly, and the tiny little mulberry rose, also from Renea's shop.
For some glitzy, sparkly touches, I used the Gawdie Girl Diamond Chunky German Glitter Glass on some of the clips that adorn the pages.
This page has a little romantic touch with a belly band topped off with a Beautiful Board Follow Your Heart Doilies Chipboard and Tranquil Glitter Glass Premium Paper Dragonfly.
On this pocket, I decided to place Tiny Gabrielle In Paris Laser Cut Chipboard. I felt she fit right in with the beautiful Paris Themed papers.
The pocket opens to reveal several places for pictures, journaling, and also a little tuck-spot I topped off with lavender pearls.
I fell in love with the depth of color and shine on this Tranquil Glitter Glass Premium Paper Dragonfly, so I used it once again to top off these graduated pages that tie off to the side with a gold-rimmed pink ribbon.
This simple page reveals another place for pictures and journaling. I kept it simple by creating a tie with a flower and brad, as well as layered pieces and a gold-guilded dry embossed lavender background for added texture. It also has a hidden side-pocket with an additional pink ribbon to decorate the border.
Here you can see that I created a cute little tuck-spot by making a little envelope topped with a heart. I also added another Tiny Treasures Watercolor Shabby Sugar Plum Roses Premium Paper Dragonfly to top off a heart-shaped clip.
This page is also quite simple, as I loved the layered look of all the script papers, so I embellished it a heart-shaped ticket on the side with a layer of floral paper and pink ribbon.
On this page I made layers with floral cutouts and vellum, and also added vellum flowers that I embellished with Gawdie Girl Diamond Chunky German Glitter Glass. To finish it, I also topped it with the gorgeous Beautiful Butterfly Lace. The paper is also dry-embossed and inked to match.
This simple page houses two tags topped with tabs. All of the papers have stitching, embossing, and inking on the edges for a cohesive look in this book.
Here ends my journal. with more corners from the Beautiful Board 6 Piece Small Texture Pattern In Purple Laser Cut Chipboard, and a bottom trim with Reneabouquets Trim-Sheer Romance Lace.
Be sure to watch my video for a real-time and closeup view of this beauty. I had lots of fun making it, and as always hope that you can Be inspired, Be blessed!
