Vintage Telegram 31 Day Journal

 I've been working on this beautiful mini album using Marion Smith's "Vintage Telegram" digital printables that you can find here. I decided to use it for my 31 Day Journal for the month of June, I can't wait to fill this mini up with wonderful family and friend memories! I will be sharing more on my journal here on this blog and my blog and I will be creating some videos be sure to stop over. With my journal I also wanted to create some wrinkle and stain paper which I created a little tutorial you can see below as well as a little video sharing it too.
I wanted to buy new supplies to use with this digital design but decided I needed to use up some of my stash...I love using one of the journal spots as my title focal point, tucking in a clock die cut and a handmade flower with fuzzy cutting out images from the line to embellish. Delish!
You know me I had to use something vintage and old in my projects..don't you just love the center of the flower! It's a olde ear ring that I repurposed fabulous!!

handmade tea stain paper
Tea stain handmade paper:
1. using copy/printer paper
2. boil water in a sauce pan with 3-4 tea bags
3. place paper in tea water bath
4. soak for desire tea stain look (15 minutes is good medium tone)
5. pull paper out of tea bath and place on wire racks to drip dry 
6. crumble the paper up in your hands and allow to dry a bit longer
7. unwrap gently to avoid tearing (but I love the tears)
8. let air dry or spead up drying by using your heat tool
9. cut paper down to size for your project
10. iron the papers to help shrink paper to fit flat in your mini
enjoy with your projects...
See how full and wrinkle the paper gets LOVE!
enjoy the video
