Lisa: Here is a super sweet little album featuring the new journaling binders. By altering the cover with a knothole, an adorable owl peeks through for a “punny” album title.

We will start with a journaling binder, patterned papers, chipboard letters, and stickers from the Knee Highs & Bow Ties collection. You will also need a craft knife and cutting mat, brown acrylic paint and foam brush, paper trimmer, scissors, adhesive, and a pencil.

Place the owl sticker onto scrap paper and cut around edges. Draw an organic knothole shape on scrap paper using the owl as a guide for size. Cut out shape and trace onto journal cover with pencil.

Place the journal cover onto a protected tabletop with the binder hanging off the edge. Use a craft knife to cut out knothole. The album cover is very thick, so this will take many passes.

Put brown paint onto a foam brush and brush it several times on a scrap until the brush is fairly dry. Very lightly drag the brush along the ridges in the wood texture on the cover. Once dry, add a strip of patterned cardstock, chipboard letters, and a printed title to the front of journal.

To create title page, adhere the owl sticker to the black text tab insert page, taking notice of where it will show through the knothole. I used foam adhesive dots to make him stand out. Hand-cut a branch to place under him. Punch or hand-cut a few stars to put into the “sky” being sure they will not show through the knothole.

Now fill the album with special photos and memories…

  15. You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I feel I’d by

  22. Every weekend i used to go to see this site, for the reason that i wish for enjoyment, since this this website conations in fact nice funny material

  23. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. But just imagine
    if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this website could certainly be one of the best in its niche.
    Great blog!

  24. Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger,
    and I was curious about your situation; many of us have
    developed some nice procedures and we are looking to swap strategies with other folks, why not shoot
    me an email if interested.

  25. My spouse and I stumbled over here by a different web address and thought I might as well check things out.
    I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to checking out your
    web page repeatedly.

  26. Kenmore is really a unique case because there isn’t really one particular maker of Kenmore appliances.
    Next, use a small crescent wrench or a pair of pliers to tighten the white plastic washer-like
    ring bought at the base in the lid (there’s one on either side).

    A plumbing distributor also can be attractive providing
    most with the essential parts to stop the leakages. Internet is another premier source of getting a dryer and washing machine.

  27. Gradually improve your playing time, until you are able to play around
    the 2 without any problems. For the greens, pick the leaves off in the stalk and pinch from the leaf stem.

  28. Because from the higher psi (pressure per square inch)
    gas pressure washers produce they require a tad bit more caution compared to electric ones.
    Peg boards are another good option, as are floor storage for example stackable bins or wicker baskets.

    If you live inside a small apartment or dorm you
    lack to look elsewhere. Long ago people bought their washers and

    Most people who want to start their own business take out a loan on the
    equity in their property, or take out a second mortgage on their house,
    to get started. Another perk of many of the best online checking accounts is that
    most pay you interest on your balances.
