Additional TLC Printable included in this Junk Journal
Cuttlebug Die Cutting Machine
Various Metal Dies : Die-Namics, Lawn Fawn, Sizzix, Spellbinders
Bakers Twine - Markers for some coloring of images - TH Distress Ink on some of the images
ATG - Scotch White Glue, Fiskars punch/Spellbinders circle die for circles

This first photo here shows the 2 pages when the journal is opened - each photo shot that follows, shows the pages in order as the journal is opened. There are pocket inserts to pull out and write messages - each pocket insert front and back has a coffee label that also came with the set.

These are the pocket inserts - each side of every pull out tag, has a sentiment such as show in this photo - These sentiments come with the Coffee Journal Kit - I printed the entire sheet then use a MFT Die-Namics Stitched die through the Cuttlebug to cut each one.

On the right side page is a Paper Clip tag I created earlier this month -  have a tutorial if you wish to see how I made that paper clip - click HERE

I used TH Distress Inks on all of these coffee images as well as a pink Marker

The Boy in this photo is by TH - the other images are included in the files - I used TH Distress ink on the image on the right side

I colored up the coffee cup on the left side image and added a heart die cut. A Die-Namics Banner die cut was used to cut the printed image - this was a free image by Paulette - I merged the free coffee sentiment by Paulette into the bubble before cutting. - I so like the sentiment on the right side as well, because I often say that about coffee, ice cream, chocolate - hehe - thanks for dropping by!
