Duct Tape/Parcel Tape Journal

I did a Duct Tape Tutorial back in February  ( Duct Tape tutorial ) and I wanted to give you a few more tips that I discovered while making some yesterday and today.  The ones I did yesterday and today were 8 1/4 x 6 inch in finished size, so card stock cut to  12 x 8 1/4 and then folded down the middle.
The first tip I want to give you was given to me by my dear friend Vanessa, after I had complained my folds were not very accurate despite using a score board.  I had thought once you had scored down the middle and then folded, it should be accurate.  Obviously you need to keep the card up against the side and bottom edges, when you score, but what I was doing was picking the card up and folding it and then using the bone folder to finish.  
Tip 1What you actually need to do is this. Score the card, then keeping the card against the edges, fold it over so the opposite edge also butts up to the left and bottom edge.  Once you are confident all edges are correct, hold the left side down and…

Easy Back to Back Journal Tutorial

This is a very easy journal to make and you can make it any size.  You can make it from bought blank cards, bought birthday cards that are blank in the middle, or any craft card.   I usually use an even number, 6 , 8, 10 or 12.  I had stacks of 12 x 12 card bought as packs.  Most packs were quite cheap (which was the reason I had so much!).  The quality of the card wasn't brilliant, but you get what you pay for :)  some of card was good quality, but I couldn't think what to do with it.  So in an effort to cut down on my stash, I decided to make some journals.  I usually do these back to back journals with double sided tape, but as I had a lot of Mod Podge to use up, I decided to use that.  
I made mine 9 x 6.  I trimmed the card and scored them down the middle.  The first two I made I used too much glue, they took ages drying and warped badly, so they are sitting under paint containers flattening!  The Mod Podge is a bit runny and one of the tacky glues would be better.  I trie…

Psalm 51 (2) free

I created another card from Psalm 51 and as I changed the font I decided to do the first one again so it matched.

I also made another page.  I am going to do a Psalm journal so I shall print these out tomorrow to see what they look like coloured in.
They are all free if you would like them. see you soon and thank you for sharing your day with me x.

Psalm 51 Card - Free

The watercolour flower was free from 
I wanted to hand write the Psalm verses, but although I tried numerous times I gave up that idea  - for the moment at least.  I think I need to sketch it out first.  The drawings below are my own.

It's amazing how quickly the weeks go by.  There are loads of tadpoles in the garden ponds and a lovely profusion of flowers in the pond nearest the house.
Hope the sun is shining where you are x
