La-La Land Crafts New Release - January 2019

Hello dear visitors!

I am trying to catch up on so many things, one of which is posting all of my projects that I created using the new (January 2019) release from La-La Land Crafts.

This year I was lucky to attend the Creativation show in Phoenix. From all my heart I would like to thank Irina Blount (the owner of La-La Land Crafts) for inviting me! ♥♥

Getting back to the point at hand, the showcasing of the January release took a week, as everything has been done gradually. Since I have been absent from home and was late prepping my posts ahead of time, I will post all of my projects today in one post :)

As usual, you will be able to find the links to the products below each picture.

Let's start with a faceted box. I've used a tutorial by Lea Denton on YouTube and altered the original measurements in order to get a larger box.

Next, I made a card with the cute Enchanted Marci:

My Second Junk Journal

Hello everyone!

I am stopping by to share a junk journal that I created some time ago. This was a second journal of this style, the first one (or, more precise, its cover) can be seen here.

Anyway, the cover was created from scratch, the pages were all tea dyed. The design on the inside is pretty simple, as I wanted to have enough "clean" pages to write on. For the closure I used a strap of faux leather and a buckle.

On the inside front and back covers I made a horizontal pocket for various cards/receipts, etc.

Some of the inside pages have pockets too:

Some of the images that I printed for the journal were taken from Biodiversity Heritage Library on Flickr.

I also made a kraft envelope, which was stamped and embellished using 'Stampers Anonymous' stamps, and then sewn in between the pages.

The envelope at the picture below looks totally old, although it was created from a sheet of  tea dyed printing paper, which was distressed with "Vintage Photo" Distress Ink.

The wax seal on the back makes it look even more interesting:

I am still figuring out new technique for making the book covers and there are a number of things to improve every time. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Winter Tags with I Am Roses

Hello everyone!

How is everyone doing? Are you surviving the winter cold? :)

I have a  couple of tags to share. I made those for my co-workers for Christmas. I used the Echo Park "Hello Winter" papers and the flowers are from I Am Roses.

I've used the dies from La-La Land Crafts.

Here are the links to the IAR flowers that I used:

Stay warm and thanks for visiting!
