Paper bag mini journal

Hello everyone! Henriëtte here with a mini journal made from a paper bag and decorated 
with the Eclectic Charm collection.

This mini journal measures 5,5 x 3 1/4 inches. 
I found the idea for this kind of journal on the Creativecafegirl You Tube channel.
She has various tutorials available.

The cover is made using a small paper bag. 
I've glued a cute bird from the ephemera pack on the front and for closure I've added a ribbon.
The pages inside the journal are kraft packaging papers.
This journal has 12 pages and all pages are decorated with the Eclectic charm papers.

On the first page I've made a side pocket with ephemera and added a chipboard piece from the 
flourish and flowers set. I've used a black inkpad to color the chipboard.
On the right page I've added a tiny coin envelope and in it are two small tags.

On these two pages I've made two side pockets with ephemera from the 
Eclectic charm calling cards and a inked flower chipboard.

Here I've made a flip out with washi tape and on the right a bellyband to hold ephemera.

These two pages both have a little tuck spot made from two ephemera pieces.

The page on the left has a pocket. The other page is not embellished. 
The paper was just so beautiful.

Next, two pages with stamped images. I've used two stamp sets: 
Spread your wings and fancy clocks.
I've stamped the images with black chalk ink.

The last two pages have a side pocket and also the pocket from the paper bag.
It can hold ephemera pieces and journaling paper.

I hope you like my little Eclectic Charm journal.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Blue Fern Studios blog!!

Hugs, Henriëtte.
