Journaling Session THREE- Little Sisters (only)

Little Sisters Journaling Session Three is Sunday, March 18.  Please refer to the photograph below to see Class Plan example. Also, please let me know if/when you will not be attending any session.


  1. Finish your scrappy tags (oxide ink tag, tags are 1/8 inch larger than book so you can trim 1/8 inch before or after you add to book [or leave sticking out], ink the backside top 2 inches where hole is [it will show], stamp with flourish or background, add washi tape along the seam where the two tags touch in center, affix into the inside of the first page of each signature/chapter).  Call me if you have questions.
  2. Finish oxide inking all the paper/file folders I handed out in class. Iron flat before bringing to class.
  3. Begin designing your layout for six spreads, please do not glue/affix into your journal.  A spread is when you open the journal and you are looking at both the left and right pages, which are coordinated.  You might start by selecting a mini wall calendar image for each signature that sits to the right of the oxide tags you have added at the beginning of each signature.  Continue by creating mats and other layers, then use a paper clip or mini binder clip to hold onto the page (see photo below).
  4. Begin collecting share items for six or more sisters using the shared information sheet distributed  (such as stamps, die cuts, images … any tidbit that goes with their theme & colors).
  5. Your list of three chapter/signature/journal titles and/or words you would like Cherri to typeset.

This is a spread … open to left & right pages. Notice they are color coordinated. The right side has an image designed with a tag mat, a piece of ribbon, a flourish die cut, inked edges and one embellishment flower.  The left side has a word stamp and a quote sitting on top of the background-stamped-oxide-inked scrappy tag, with ribbons in the tags.
