BoBunny Boulevard Journal

Hello crafty friends!
Angela here with a new project made with BoBunny Boulevard collection. This time, I created a stylish mini journal using both papers and lots of beautiful embellishments from the collection. For an overall look through, watch the video below!


The journal has a hard cover made of chipboard and the binding is made of two rubber bands that hold all the pages in place. On the spine of the journal I attached a pendant made of a tassel and a few beads I had in my stash.


To keep a classy feeling, I chose to close the journal with two pieces of silk ribbon. I placed the first piece of ribbon underneath the chipboard embellishments of the front cover, adhering it with strong glue. Then, I placed the second piece on the side of the journal and I sewed it with my sewing machine. 


On the front cover i made a cluster of chipboard with gold foil accents and layered chipboard with glitter accents.  I'm completely in love with those roses! 


My intention is to fill in the journal with quotes and noteworthy words. Some of these are stamped or hand written, some other are from the journal cards and die-cuts form Boulevard collection.


The journal has a lot of space to write notes and thoughts. Some phrases, the more intimate are hidden on a tag placed inside a pocket or underneath a page flap. 


Other phrases are written on little pieces of paper directly incorporated to the pages.


I created a variety in the size of the pages, some are longer, some are smaller, to give movement fo the journal.


 Here is a Journal card from Boulevard collection with two tab stickers sewed on one side and hidden inside a pocket made of two pages glued together.


Here is an open pocket that holds a page of a book with a poem that I love.




I decorated each page with different kind of embellishments, chipboard, diecuts, stickers and little scraps of papers.



Here I used a brad from Boulevard collection to hold a little tag and underneath, a strip of washi holds in place a piece of paper ready to be filled with my notes.  


Since Boulevard is a collection that reminds me of French canvas of nineteenth century, I also tried to incorporate little bits and pieces of laces and fabrics here and there.



This journal could appear a huge project to some of you but, believe me the beauty of Boulevard collection makes the greatest part of the job. You just need to grab the papers and the embellishments you love and put them together without overthinking.




For the journal title the idea was something like 'Notes to the heart' but I wasn't 100% sure so I preferred to leave it blank for the moment.

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed this mini journal but most of all I hope you feel inspired to create your own with the gorgeous Boulevard collection.
