Wanderlust Binder Modern Foil - Sassy Scrapper

Today I'm sharing a few fin things to make to add to your binder using 
You could even put these in your planner..

I started with using the die cut watercolour paper and misted it light pink

Then I cut a 5x 7 bit of vellum to put behind my watercolour paper 

I glued it down and punched the holes to fit in my binder

And to give it a fun border I added a machine stitched edge

Next I made some fun journaling tags and mini pockets
Using a pre cut tag and a bit of vellum 


I machine stitched around the vellum and added some twine

It's pretty on the front and you can journal on the back

Here is how I created the mini pocket 
Cut a bit of patterned paper at 7x3 inch
Fold the bottom 3 quarters of a centimetre 

And fold in half add some double sided tape to one side

And fold in half and a little bit of glue to the edge 

And punch 2 hole in the glued side 

Then add some embellishments and your ready to add it to your binder

I hope you have fun making these fun thinks for your binder or planner

Happy crafting

have fun and laugh layout - couture creations

Today  I'm sharing a layout made with the super lovely vintage rose garden
Patterned papers,embossing folders and some beautiful dies

Here are some close ups of my layout

So here is how I created my layout 
I took a lovely bit of patterned paper from the 12x12 pad
And trimmed an inch of my white cardstock on 2 sides
Then I got the embossing folder and placed the cardstock in it and put it on the floor and randomly 
Stood on it and I done this several times to get a light texture on my background 

Then i glued and machine stitched my cardstock to the patterned paper
Next I Took some patterned paper from the 6x6 paper pad 
and die cut using the rowena die and cut it in half

To add a lovely texture layer i embossed another bit of patterned paper
Using the hearts ease embroidery folder

Next I added a few more layers of patterned paper 

Then using the doily I die cut I tucked one half under some of my layers 
and the other at the top of my layout 

Then I added some fussy cut flowers some daffodil die cuts under my flowers 
and a few little strips of patterned paper that I cut into pendants

Then i added a die cut border under the bottom layers of my photo 
of the cute little penny farthing bike just under the edge of my fussy cut flowers layers

And added a few more fussy cut flowers to the bike and I finished my layout off by adding a flick of silver paint pearls and a cut title.
