Joli Paquet Submission

Now for SALE in my Etsy shop! Only 13 available!

The lovely Jolie Paquet was looking for submissions from interested artists.
I have been wanting to be one of their featured artists for about a year and this was a great opportunity to get a shot.
I practiced with the Mon Ami Angel Kits. And I created a new kit today...

The Love Letter Journal. For you and a loved one to pass back in forth when the feelings of adoration hit. Write down the love you are feeling and cherish it as a memento.

Here is the mess that is the preperation and gathering of the beautiful supplies

Here is the sewing of the sample Love Letters Book

These journals would include gorgeous white, cream and pinks of fabric strips and lace to cover the front of the book. Seam binding to tie it shut and a pretty german glitter glass star to finish it off.
The packaging comes with vintage early 1900's Ephemera and a coffee dyed tag smelling of vanilla wrapped with all of the pretty trims.
We'll find out on Wednesday if I made it as a guest artist on Joli Paquet.
I thought it was only fitting that I share this with you before I know the outcome as I just told you in a recent post that making art is not about being accepted or rejected but having incredible amounts of fun. Which is exactly what I did creating these kits~!


It is Wednesday and I found out today that I will be joining these 3 ladies

Heidi Wallingford

Kelly Green

Sheila Rumney

in being Guest artists on the fantastic Joli Paquet website...

To Celebrate These kits are FOR SALE in my shop and The sample book I have made up as seen in the photos above will be given to one of you who comment on this post. I will randomly draw the winner on Saturday the 20th of March.
I will mail this gorgeous finished book to you along with more goodies of course!


1. Find the 2 strands of soft pink seam binding wrapped on the coffee dyed tag.
And open your journal.
Sew or glue 1 strand onto cover and 1 to the back of book to be tied shut after project is complete.

2. Now you can begin sewing or gluing on front cover. Start at the left side of the journal by putting down your first desired strip of fabric or lace. sew straight stitch or sew frills by scrunching fabric strips (push a bit of fabric under foot of sewing machine) 2. Work your way to the right on the cover of the journal with desired strips until front of book is covered.

3. Glue Glitter Star to desired area on cover with hot glue , add ephemera and embellishments to book pages.

Please feel free to contact me at for any questions or tips :)
