Autumn Blessings Journal using Harvest House by DCWV

Hi there,

Today I'm sharing an Autumn Blessings Journal that I created using the Mercury Glass and Harvest House stacks by DCWV. This combination is perfect for this time of year. The patterns are so beautifully coordinated and versatile. They really made this journal come to life. I’m going to enjoy adding photos and journaling in this journal on Thanksgiving Day.  The journal measures 3 ½ x 5.  I’m including an easy tutorial below:

DCWV Stack:

·        Mercury Glass Stack

·        Harvest House Stack




Ribbon (Stained)


Brown Chalk

Xyron Adhesive

3D Tape

Hot Glue

Step 1: Cut sentiments from the Harvest House stack.

Step 2: Run 5 x 7 ¾ piece of patterned paper from Mercury stack though the New Creative Station and adhere to journal. Note: Begin securing the paper to the front cover, wrapping around the binding and then securing the remaining paper to the back of the journal. When you are done, you would have covered both front and back covers with 1 piece of patterned paper.

Step 3: Add ribbon to the journal. Set aside.

Step 4:  Distress the edges of coordinating patterned papers and journaling spots from the Harvest Home stack.

Step 5: Adhere patterned papers and journaling spots together and layer onto journal.

Step 6: Adhere layered focal image on to journal using 3D tape.

Step 7: Add leaves and sentiment. Continue embellishing as desired.
