Vintage Rose DIY Journal Kit, Video How-To

Vintage Rose Journal Kit by Digi Doodads

Holy Moly. What a mess!

Yesterday I pulled out a folder of papers (I thought) and found this adorable mini-album in there. I had started making it, all was done except the cover. So I said, brilliantly, “I’ll make a video!” and I did a walk-through of the whole album, discussing  how I made it.

Today I went to edit the video and I absolutely can’t find it. HOWEVER.… I found a video of the same album that I actually made 7 months ago, and never edited or uploaded.

Are you lost yet?

So today I am sharing the old video since I have lost the new one. It’s better anyway I think.

My Vintage Rose Journal Kit

If you love shabby chic, vintage, roses, grunge….this journal kit is for you. It’s coming out a lot pinker than the actual parts. It is soft and sweet. The colors are Blush, Cafe Noir, Chocolate —- YUM.

Call it a junk journal kit, mini album kit, or art journal. Call it and make it into whatever you want! It is a digital (printable) download file, which means you get to print it over and over as many times as you like. It comes set up  with 10 journal pages 6X6 inches all laid out and ready for you to print and assemble. Then you just use some of the stickers or cut files to embellish it. Or use the other papers to make a bigger or different layout. Here’s the video instructions for the simplest journal layout. I hope you like it!

Here’s part 2, where I started doing the cover. Honestly, you don’t have to follow my way; but maybe if you watch it’ll give you an idea?
By the way, a lot of people have asked if I will print the files for people. Of course I will, as long as you cover the cost of printing. I realize not everyone has the capability, or maybe their printer is on the blink or whatever. I have put a fee for the printed-out kit to cover my costs (I hope). Use this link if you want to purchase it that way. Not sure if that was just idle curiosity – we’ll see!

DIY Scrapbook Mini Album Start to Finish

I started a beach-themed mini album a few months ago. It got interrupted by a long-term house guest, who slept in my craft room. All day. Now my guest is gone and I’m sort of pawing through the album pages, videos made, videos edited, etc. trying to figure out where I am. So if I’ve left anything out, please message me!

(My email is the name of this blog at gmail. But you can also leave comments on the blog)

The paper I’m using is by the Paper Studio, and it is called Beach House. As you can see the colors are slightly muted tones of blue, red, and green – perfect for a beach album!

I chose to make the album’s base out of black heavyweight cardstock.

For the first video, we’re creating the beginning pages and pocket. It’s a fairly short one but it lays the foundation.
