SHABBY NOTEBOOK {merly impressions & kaisercraft}

hello crafty peeps!

just stopping by to share an altered journal book I created for MERLY IMPRESSIONS' blog this week using KAISERCRAFT's "CHERRY TREE LANE" collection {available at MERLY IMPRESSIONS'  online store}.


decorative die - MINI FOLIAGE

mini distress ink pad – ANTIQUE LINEN
metal vintage key
BOBUNNY - all caps die

here are some close ups of my project and TIP & TRICKS on how i did it:

use the POSTCARDS pattern paper for the background. add scalloped borders from the mini PAPER PAD at both edges.

die cut the letter for the title using BOBUUNY letters die.

TIP! did you know that KAISERCRAFT released a brad new collection of TEXTURE dies, which are perfect for adding texture to your projects any place you like? i used TEXTURE WOVEN on my project.

for the flower cluster use PAPER BLOOMS - sage and PAPER BLOOMS - terracotta and die cut the foliage using different dies.

 i hope i managed to inspire you!

THANK YOU for visiting me today!
