Autumn Blessings Journal using DCWV & Pink & Main

Hi there,

Today, DCWV is hopping with Pink & Main. I created this little Autumn Blessings Journal with DCWV's Autumn Leaves stack and Pink & Main's stamps and dies. I loved this combination of products. The stamps and dies were easy to use and complimented the Autumn Leaves stack beautifully. My journal is perfectly sized at 8 ¼ x 5 ¾. Take a peek at my tutorial below.

DCWV Stack: Autumn Leaves (Journal Covers: 8 1/4 x 5 1/4)
Journal/Notebook (8 1/4 x 5 3/4)
Pink & Main Stamps and Dies: Wild About You, Thankful
Xyron: Creative Station
Black Ink
Hot Glue


Step 1: Cut patterned papers from Autumn Leaves stack to layering sizes and run through the Creative Station. Adhere to journal. Note: This step creates the back and front cover of journal.

Step 2: Run coordinating layers through the Creative Station and adhere to journal.

Step 3: Run focal image layer through the Creative Station and adhere to journal.

Step 4. Add leaves to journal using hot glue.

Step 5: Adhere bow and button to journal.


Step 6: Using black ink, stamp sentiment from Thankful stamp set onto DCWV patterned paper. Trim paper and adhere to journal.

Step 7: Using black ink, stamp image from Wild About You stamp set onto DCWV patterned paper. Use coordinating die and die cut machine to cut the image out and adhere to the journal. Continue embellishing as desired.

Your journal is gorgeous! You always make the most amazing ones of those :) I love how you used that fox stamp on the leaf paper and didn't color it. I am not a person who colors much at all, so that would be the perfect solution for me!
