French Country Pocket Journal

I love French Country and with the beautiful kitch designs on these papers, they were perfect for capturing that look. I love to create pocket journals, so I created this wonderful French Country style one using the Scraps Of Elegance November Kit~Tracey's Country Kitchen.

I first formed a 6 Inch wide x 9 Inch Tall pocket from the kit papers and then started layering!
I first added layers of distressed kit papers, fussy cut elements as well as layers of the Bo Bunny MiscMe Pieces.
Next came a layer of  Crochet Lace  and I then took some burlap ribbon edging and added it to the lace and to the angled pocket.

I added a sweet little, Brass Spoon, and took the twine from the kit and made a multi layered bow and added one of the Bo Bunny Brads from the kit to the center.
The Oh So Butterlicious Butterflies were created especially for this kit and you get a set of 2 with it.

For the floral layer I added a Petaloo Burlap Sunflower from the kit and some past kit flowers and stash foliage, then tucked in some scrap pieces of the burlap ribbon for lots of texture. 

I then took a Tim Holtz Metal Book Plate, cut out the word "Cozy" from the Bo Bunny pieces and added some of the Bo Bunny Brads to the holes.

The Tuck Ins include:
2-Large Double Sided tags with a teapot theme created from the kit papers and piecies
3-Medium Double Sided Tags created from the MiscMe pieces and layered with kit paper pieces
This pocket journal is so perfect for housing journaling, small photos, momentos and small treasures!!

Thank you for the visit!! I love Country pieces!! They remind me so much of my Granny and her "Kitchy" Style. Hugs ~Renea

Well it is fabulous Renea! Gorgeous work. You should know I would 'crow' about this one! LOL with the country and rooster theme. It is French country elegance. And your tags are beautiful my friend. I really like the French blue and white; and your twine additions gave it the perfect country charm. Thanks for sharing! Have a blessed Thanksgiving~ Karen O
