Let's make 'Window Pockets with Bookmarks', using a digital kit

Hello and happy Friday!

There is a new digital kit in my Etsy store and I really like this one. If you use the whole kit, you are going to have 10 rainbow pockets with double sided bookmarks in them. They look so cool together!

I have added a You Tube video for you to use while you are assembling your window pockets:

Let's have a closer look at all of them:

Here are the reverse sides:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Journals for Sale on Etsy

Hello everyone!

I have been asked whether I was making journals for sale, and as a matter of fact I have never done it before. I have of course sold some of my works if I was asked for something specific, but I have never created journals with the purpose of selling them in the first place. 

Well, since there has been an interest, there are now 4 mini journals available for sale in my Etsy:
Journal 1 
Journal 2

Each one measures 4 3/4" X 5 3/4" and has a 2" wide spine. 
The covers have been wrapped in fabric and have a decorative paper on top in the front, whereas the back is fabric only. The spines and the band-closures are made with genuine leather. Three out of four journals have tiny pressed flowers encased in the printed specimen slides in the front, and one journal has a printed image with the flowers instead. 

Each journal has 3 signatures and a little add-on notebook. I have used various kinds of papers alongside different book pages, as well as digital printables from many creators, including myself :)

I heat stamped the words "Nature Journal" in the front of the band closures. On some leather types the words came out less distinct. I need to practice this technique more and experiment with different thicknesses of leather. 

Here are all 4 journals together:

I have a flip though of each journal in the video format:

I hope you like the journals and find them inspiring. 

Thanks for hanging out with me :)

A new digital kit in my Etsy store and a Ko-Fi freebie


I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the summer. Here in Texas the temperatures keep on rising and it's way better to be in- than outside. Early mornings begin with close to 83 degrees (+28°C). It's hot! :)

Anyways, there are a few updated that I wanted to share on the blog:
1 - There is a new digital kit in my Etsy store and I love it so much!!! It includes 14 pages of various nature themed printable elements. Once you are done assembling everything, you will have a lot of pieces to use.
Here is a picture of what the final result will look like:

I invite you to watch a really short video overview of the kit, too:

2 - In addition, I have a added a little freebie to my Ko-Fi page. The printable includes 4 base tags of neutral tones and 4 oval frames with children' portraits. You can use washi tape, die cuts, flowers and lace from your stash to spice up the tags. Below you can find a preview of the freebie and the examples of the tags that I have created with it:

That's all from me for now. 

I hope you have a wonderful peaceful and crafty day!

Tag Album with my Digital Kit

Hello and welcome!

I have finished making a Tag Album using my own digital printables and I can't wait to share it with you!

Below there will be some pictures of the album's pages and after them I will make sure to post a video overview, too.

The album turned out great! It is super colorful, but has a vintage style and feel to it. There are various pockets, tags envelopes and tuck spots that make it even more fun to flip through.

I have used a hidden hinge binding method for connecting the pages of the album together, but you are welcome to use any binding you like. Tab binding could work great for such album (as an option).

Currently there is no tutorial on putting the album together, but I am sure that if you decide to purchase the kit, you will know how to work with it. If you don't want to create an album, you can always cut all the flaps off the tags and use them separately. The most important thing is to have fun!!

And here is a video flip through -

Once uploaded, Part 1 of the tutorial will be available here:

Have a great creative weekend!!
