Hello friends! Get ready for some floral magnificence! I received the Parklane Paperie Praire Primrose Paper Pad from Joann’s to work with. Park Lane paper pads have something for everyone and every style! Bold, beautiful colours complement a variety of patterns and finishes to fit nearly any project you’re working on. 12×12 packs are perfect for scrapbook pages, albums, handmade cards and more. Pick and choose from a variety of colourful packs for a style that’s uniquely you! This pack includes 34 sheets of 12×12-inch paper in rustic floral designs. The Praire Primrose Pad has gorgeous textures, including foil, embossed and my absolute favourite linen textured papers.
I decided to make myself a new journal with the paper pad! The feel of the rose linen paper is amazing! It feels like fabric with the working qualities of paper! I knew it had to be the cover of my journal!
To make the journal, I cut, three pieces of book board and wrapped them with paper. I chose the embossed wood grain paper for the spine to coordinate with the floral cover. I could have 100 pieces of this woodgrain paper! I made the cover to fit a regular size travellers notebook insert. I added a simple elastic closure with a little charm for decoration, and some hand waxed embroidery floss with beads and buttons for a “charm.”
You will see that I kept the journal plain for now so that you could see the papers in all their glory! On the inside, I used the sweet yellow rose paper for the front and back cover. My first insert is made from a mix of the paper pad, vintage paper and coffee dyed paper. I used the gorgeous yellow rose floral for the cover of the insert.
Look at how lovely the papers are close up!
In the middle of the inserts, I made a pocket insert from white cardstock and slipped the pink rose acetate over top of it. I can use it for sticky notes or just admire it! I clipped a 3×4 card from the cut apart sheet included in the paper pad. The cut apart sheet has a mix of journal cards and sentiment cards! My second insert is similar to the first and full of florals and mixed patterns from the pad.
I adore how my journal turned out. If you love florals, yo,u will love this paper pad. I was impressed with the lovely quality of each of the papers! You can find all the Parklane Paperie Pads online at Joann.com.
