Forever Fern is the star of this journal spread. I’m glad you can join me. Our aim is to make beautiful and creative journal spreads by using stamp sets, dies and tools beyond card making. It doesn’t matter if you’re materials are not current so make sure you bring them out and give them a new life!
Start with Designer Series Paper (DSP) and trim to the size of your journal. This will be the background. I chose a striped print in Crumb Cake. Use a similar print in your collection or make your own stripes.
Next, choose another set of DSP to make pockets. Here, I used one of the striped sheets from a pack of Flowers For Every Season DSP. Trim your DSP and attach to the left side of your spread. Leave 1 side open because it’s a pocket.
Do the same on the right side but this time attach the square piece at the top of the page with washi tape. Again, leave 1 side open because this is a pocket.
Stamp the leaves in Just Jade and die cut using the Forever Fern Stamp set and dies. Vellum is great for die-cutting leaves so make sure you incorporate that when layering your leaves. This softens the overall look. Make enough so that you can make a bouquet of leaves.
Attach some Parisian-inspired stickers to pin down the bouquet of leaves. The owl is a beautiful addition too. Lastly, stamp spray dots and you’re done.
Fun Tip: Use washi tape to attach the leaves. Why not use it to make stripes for your background? I found this washi tape in my daughter’s craft box!
