So Sentimental Pocket Journal

Today, I have a Vintage look Pocket Journal that I created using the Scraps Of Elegance November Kit~ Sweet Sentiments. I used a Vintage photo that I did lots of digital cleaning up on and color work on.

I cut down some of the kit paper and formed a large 6 x 8 pocket, ran some Crochet Lace down the top edge of the pocket, and some Crochet Lace  across the bottom. I then layered on more layers of distressed and Tim Holtz Vintage Photo inked pieces and the Doily crochet piece that was in one of the Prima flower packs from this month's Floral Add On, and then added my photo that I also distressed and inked the edges on. 

I added a hand crafted Fairy Magic Die Cut from my Reneabouquets Etsy and Reneabouquets.com Store. 

I added on stash mulberry paper flowers and a Prima Manhatten Flower at the bottom corner of the photo, added a little Silver Spoon underneath the photo and popped on some of my handcrafted Tiny Treasures Fairy Dust Butterflies.

I formed 5-double sided pull outs by fussy cutting out some of the journaling spot pieces from the kit and adding on hand dyed seam binding, mini roses, buttons and some of the lace and one of the Brads,  from the kit for lots of journaling and photo spots to collect some of those Sentimental pieces that we all have in. 

I hope you have a wonderful week, and as always, I am so grateful that you took the time to drop by!! Hugs ~Renea
