Thanks Dena for this inspiring project. I love the color scheme, very retro and fresh. Its the perfect project for a young tween or teen and it would make a great gift. Change up the color selection and you have a project that can be recreated for all seasons. Have Fun, Jewels

With school back in full swing and Fall at our front door, it's easy to forget that Winter is right around the corner. To embrace these very colorful days of Fall , I embellished a fabric journal with some vibrant, die cut felt flowers! This project is fun and easy and only requires a few basic materials. So go ahead... put some breezy music on, grab a cup of warm tea and invite your friends to join the fun soaking up these Fall days!

All you need is a cute fabric, paper or leather journal, some colorful felt, buttons and your Sizzix materials.

Gather:

  • Sizzix Machine
  • Themed floral dies or other summer-inspired motifs
  • Felt
  • Buttons
  • Scissors
  • Fabric glue

Create:

  1. Die-cut flowers or summer-inspired motifs out of colorful felt
  2. Adhere the felt flowers to your journal and let dry
  3. Embellish the center of the flowers with buttons (optional)
  4. Cut a scrap of fabric to match the width of the journal's binding, wrap around the inside and create a bow.
  5. Voila!
Pin It!

  1. Will you be blogging about the new Vagabond. I have been wanting a certain brand of fabric cutter and was told about your new one. I really love what it can do and the look is fantastic. I am a primitive quilter and I know the prim girls would love a machine that matches their decor.

    I would love to know more about it and what it can do and if there will be more dies for quilting.

  2. Hi Debbie, take a look at the Sizzix Westminster Big Shot Pro Die Cutting machine perfect for Quilting. We have an entire line of dies including the machine at www.sizzix.com
    If you are looking for a motorized die cutting machine then the Tim Holtz Inspired Vagabond is perfect! It has a 6 inch opening compared to the 12 inch opening on the Big Shot Pro but we do have quilting and applique dies that will work just perfect with the Vagabond. This machine will be shipping sometime mid November of this year. Let me know if you have any other questions, Thanks Julianna
