Create a beautiful journal to record you memories in.

Step 1. Trim patterned paper so that it is slightly smaller than the cover of the journal.

Step 2: Stamp honeycomb stamp on patterned paper, crumple up into a ball and flatten.

Step 3: Trim to size (approximately 2 ½ x 3 ½) and sand the edges.

Step 4: Position on the larger piece of patterned paper and use a pencil to lightly mark the bottom of the rectangle. Set aside.

Step 5. Use the long flourish from the 6 Piece Wood Stamp set and stamp the design with black ink.

Step 6: Put the rectangle back in place, secure in the place with a small piece of adhesive and stitch around the edges to secure in place.

Step 7. Use a scrap piece of patterned paper and secure the butterfly mask in place with removable tape. Apply white molding paste to half of the shape, let dry. Remove the masking tape and mask the other half, apply black molding paste to the other half of the mask, use the sample as inspiration. Let dry.

Step 8: When the molding paste is dry, cut out butterfly with scissors and attach to the patterned paper. Stitch down the center (body) to secure in place.

Step 9: Attach phrase: living in the moment as shown in the example.

Step 10: Attach completed page to front of journal using permanent adhesive.
