SHABBY CHIC FABRIC JOURNAL


I Love to alter Journals and they make great gifts for Family and Friends, my little sister and nieces as well as my daughter Love to play with them, and it is so much fun to see them as they write and stick little notes of wonderful memories. I used Beautiful trims from Suhafuha's esty ( I will provide the link below so that you can go and visit her) and used fabric tack to adhere them to the cover. Saba has the most Unique and Wonderful trims, not to mention the prices for them are just as great :) I want to share with you all some pictures of the journal and talk to you a little bit of how I altered the journal, Hope you enjoy it :)




THE BACK OF THE JOURNAL

Here is the Back of the Journal, I outlined the cover of the journal with calico cream fabric and started to layer all the doilies and trims to the cover I had so much fun and went to town with all the Beautiful trims.





THE BOTTOM LEFT OF THE FRONT OF THE JOURNAL

I also layered tons of Beautiful trims here from Suhafuha and then I added the Beautiful soft pink rossette trim and added to the center some flat back heart shaped pearls. The little pink and green peeks you see there are peices of a trim that I cut out just to add color and interest to the journal.

Here you can see a better view of the trims , I just Love them so much, so Beautiful!! those flower sprays I found at Hobby Lobby and they are perfect to fill in spaces.

THE FRONT OF THE JOURNAL 

Here you can see the whole fron of the journal, I Love the way it came out and Suhafuha's trims made it so easy for me to alter this journal :) I hope you can check her store out as well as her Facebook page, and it would be a reall treat for us if you can leave a comment as well to show us what you create with all her wondeful trims from her store :)
