Garden Journal Book

No matter the size, big or small...everyone loves to plant in the garden! 
There is just something so  rewarding to see what you planted, come to life! 
I created this garden journal to help me remember what and when I planted, as well as illustration my garden as it comes to life..

You will need:
Joy Embroidered Iron-On Letter Sheet- in Aqua or White (if you want to color your own).
Tacky Glue
Notebook with pages and pockets
Floral Washi tape


 The front of the notebook had a embossed floral design to which I accented with watercolors.
I then adhered the embroidered letters in place with glue.

The washi tape makes for some pretty page tabs as well as decorative accents.

Joy® Iron-on, embroidered letters are available in a variety of sizes, colors and fonts at your local craft stores.

Blank Page Muse April Challenge- Blue Fairy Card


Hi Everyone!
     This months group challenge on the Blank Page Muse blog is "Black and White. + One Color".
My interpretation of the theme is this Blue Fairy card. Enjoy!

  1. Corset Wire Dress Form Stamp
  2. Small Butterfly Stamp
  3. Dandelion Burst Background Stamp
  4. Black ink pad
  5. Turquoise ink pad and marker
  6. Turquoise crepe paper
  7. Black and white cardstock
  8. Double stick tape, adhesive and foam tape.


Cut your card to size and ink the edges with the turquoise ink.
Stamp the inner white card with the Dandelion stamp and adhere to the a piece of black cardstock.
Mat this onto your inked card front.

Stamp the dress form with black ink twice onto white cardstock. Trim just the corset from one of the stamped images, keeping the other one whole.
Stamp the butterfly with the turquoise ink twice. Cut them out and then in half.
Ready a 2 ½ " x 6" piece of crepe paper for later.

Adhere one set of the butterfly wings to the back of the dress form before adhere to the card.
Place pieces of tape at the lower part of the corset and add the crepe paper, pleating it as you press it into the tape. Cut off any extra crepe paper.


Glue the remaining butterfly wings to the dress form, directly over the existing wings. 
Add small pieces of foam tape to the dress form as shown. Place the corset on top and color in with the marker.

Rainbow Mail Bag

 One of my favorite things to do when I was younger was to send and receive pen pal letters. I enjoyed hearing about life in different cities or foreign countries. Some of us have grown apart while others are still close, now relying on the digital age to communicate. I missed the anticipation of seeing if there was a letter in the mailbox and discovering what sort of goodies or gossip were waiting for me.

Then I found a pen pal group on Facebook!  It's fun hear about new friends while keeping alive snail mail- art!
But keeping the letters separate from the bills, advertisements and magazines was proving difficult so So I created this wonderful mail bag!


Supplies used:


  1. Dyeable Joy® Letters
  2. A 3 pocket card organizer
  3. Assorted embellishments and trim
  4. Colored marker
  5. Adhesive or iron

  6. See the full tutorial on the Joy blog!
