Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here today with a quote journal project. I don’t know about you, but I love quotes. I have a pin board dedicated to some of my favorites. Well, it was high time to take those words off the screen and turn them into a beautiful mini journal. My We R Memory Keepers Cinch and Typecast helped create a lovely quote journal that I will enjoy looking through when I need some inspiration and encouragement.
The plan was to create a 6×6 journal. I started by punching Cinch Bookboard for the front and back covers. The Cinch easily punched through the thick board. The Cinch is also easy to use, as the punching information is printed directly on the machine. Making a 6 inch book? Pull pin 12. Incredibly simple!
Each of the pages inside the book started as a watercolor paper base. On some of the pages, I wanted to experiment with different mediums, which is why I chose something other than card stock. So not only was this a journal for my favorite quotes, but a chance to play with papers, mediums, and colors that spoke to me.
Now my pages were ready to be decorated, before assembling the journal with the Cinch wires.
When you do assemble your book, be sure and place the pages on the ring first, topped with the front cover and then the back cover. Doing this allows the wire edge to be hidden inside the book. Once again, the instructions are on the machine for closing the wires.
Using the Typecast was a fun way to write out my favorite quotes. For this quote, I typed a few of the words on Typecast Paper, knowing that I would use stickers to spell out words I wanted accented. I found that advancing the paper twice created a nice amount of space between these words. I cut these lines of words out with scissors.
For some of my quotes, I typed them out in their entirety on Typecast Tags. It is easy to place any size paper in the Typecast, even up to 12×12” paper.
The quote on this page was typed onto a tag. I layered it with stickers, other Typecast papers, and a large word sticker.
This page was layered with a piece of patterned paper from Jen Hadfield’s Heart of Home 6×6 paper pad. The gold printing fit into my color scheme perfectly. Once again, the quote was typed onto a Typecast paper pad tag.
More patterned papers, die cut accents, and a quote typed onto a paper pad tag. I love how easily this album worked together with all the tags in the paper pad. So many typing options!
My final page mixed typed words with letter and word stickers. This might be my favorite page! I have to keep this mix of wording in mind for layouts and even a card!
What are your favorite quotes? How do you like to display them?
