more Monthly Moments: September...

Hello! I'm back with one more project made with the Monthly Moments: September stamps, dies and Journal Card Collection by Papertrey Ink. If you'd like to see all of the products separately, you can see them here. With the cooler nights and all of the back-to-school events lately, I was in a mood to create a fall-ish thankful mini album. I haven't added photos yet, but photos will be easy to insert, just punch holes at the top and add them in between the pages on the binder ring!

Along with the Monthly Moments products, I've also used the Autumn Adornments stamps on the front cover, stamped and embossed it with gold embossing powder onto a Monthly Moments Journal card. I cut a Phrase Play #7 die from watercolor paper and then just painted some color right over the top and used the Monthly Moments: September stamps in the cut out ("falling leaves, harvest, hay rides"). The thankful was cut from gold paper.

The second page is another Monthly Moments: September Journal Card. I stamped "fall" with the stamp set and embossed it in gold again, trimmed it out and added a leaf die cut from the Doodlie-Do dies.

The third page is a little pocket cut with the Journal Pocket 3 die using vellum and is stamped/embossed with gold again ("Autumn"). You could add photos, journaling, etc. in the pocket.

Aren't these journaling cards cute? I love all the sayings on them.
On the fourth page, I made my own little pocket made with two of the Journal Cards and used some of the stamps on the front, also added a tag made from vellum to tuck inside.

The leftover leaf cut out from the "thankful" piece on the front cover works well here.

On this page, I used the Monthly Moments: September die to cut out the word, then glued the word back on over the top, offsetting it slightly. I like how you can see through the cut out word. "Autumn days" was stamped with Dark Chocolate ink.

Here I attached two journaling cards together to make one long page. This would be a good spot for journaling.

On the last page I'm going to show you, I cut an Apple Prints opening in the journal card and backed it with red dot washi tape and added another "thankful" die cut over the top cut with Phrase Play #7 die.
Would anyone like to give this little mini album a home? Please leave a comment if you are interested, and I'll choose a winner by the end of this week. So glad you stopped by!

I just keep on thinking where you get all these brilliant ideas. Yes the supplies are gorgeous but it takes a special talent and an eye for perfect mixing and matching to create a mini album as lovely as this. I especially love page two and four. the two journaling cards put together ("fall into fun") and the super cute apple.....sigh :)

I wish I could attend a workshop from you to get some advice . Love this!
