Aspen Journal


I loved the Club Scrap Aspen Collection so much I have another project for you.  I am Fitbooking with iClassyGirl and this is my journal made with the Aspen collection.  I was inspired by Kay's cut out stencil on her scrapbook page on Club Scrap Creates, so I made a journal using the stencil with cut outs.

I cut out part of the stencil image on the wood veneer paper and colored the remaining background with blue Distress Stains.  The quote and is clear embossed and inked.
On the inside of the black chipboard I used textured paper from Club Scrap Lock and Key and reversed the stencil.  The First page is the leaf paper with a stenciled image staggered to show through.  This time I colored the trunks with a white Distress Marker. The leaves were clear embossed on the Aspen tan paper colored with distress stains in yellow and orange.  To add a little more dimension they were raised on foam squares. 
Inside I made pages with tabs using my envelope score board punch and Aspen paper.  The pages were made by putting Aspen digital kit images behind light lines on text weight paper.  The journal is just under one half an 81/2 by 11 page, so I printed the pages at home, making them double sided.  Then I simply trimmed and punched holes.
I hope you have enjoyed this post.  I really look forward to 2014 and the great changes in store.
Happy, Creative, New Year,
