Tres Jolie Kit Club-August 2021 Moodboard Challenge-Shabby Little Notebook

Hey, all! Welcome back to my corner!

Today I’m bringing you my project inspired by this month’s moodboard—a shabby little notebook using the August Cards, Tags, & More Kit from Tres Jolie Kit Club!

I cut the papers in half, used a tab punch, my sewing machine, some lace, and my Mini Cinch to put this little notebook together in couple of hours* (*maybe that long, I got interrupted a few times so I lost track of how long it actually took! The sewing took the longest amount of time though!)

Check out my video to see how it all came together.

August 2021 Tres Jolie Moodboard:

I love this porch, which made me think of a sunroom where you can get some quiet time to rest and reflect—and maybe jot down a thought or two in a shabby little notebook! The Cards, Tags, & More Kit was already the perfect color combination for this moodboard, I just added the lace and put my pages together.


Here are a few close-ups showing the cover and a couple of the pages:

Here is a close-up of my cover cluster. I didn’t want to make it too bulky, I just wanted to add some dimension to the floral print on the patterned paper I used.

On the pages I added tabs, I just stitched the tab into place, on the pages that have lace, I stitched around the whole page. Since I was going to a shabby feel, I didn’t do everything to match! I have straight and zig zag stitching, my laces are different lengths—some longer than that page, some shorter.

As you can see, some of the pages may not work for journaling because of the pattern, but they would be perfect for adding photos or other memorabilia to!

Don’t have a Cinch or other binding machine? Some split rings or book rings will work to hold your pages together too!
