#393 FREE Faux-Dori (Faux-Midori) PDF Template Download!

Let's make this fun and easy Faux-Dori together using this DREAMY Dream Maker paper collection from Close To My Heart! I'll even share my FREE Faux-Dori PDF Template with you to download!

I've been making these fabulous journals for years now and my love for them only grows.  This was, however, the first time I've EVER used CARDSTOCK for the COVER of one of my regular sized faux-dori's ... and ... I.LOVE.IT!
For the cover above I've used Periwinkle Cardstock ... YES! this is Cardstock from CTMH's new Dream Maker Cardstock Collection.  This fabulous cardstock is printed with a pattern on one side and solid on the other.  This Periwinkle has stolen my heart ... actually the entire collection has.
I used Periwinkle Dream Maker Cardstock and for the spine I grabbed my Life's a Hoot Picture My Life Cards and pulled out the 4x6 watercolor stripe card shown on my cover.  
Although Dream Maker and the Life's a Hoot Collections are not exactly the same color palettes ... they compliment each other beautifully.  I used these Picture My Life cards throughout this Faux-Dori and also in my Pocket-Dori that I'll be sharing later.

This is the inside of my empty Faux-Dori.  I love that you can even see the brush strokes from my Gloss Gel Medium that I used to coat my cardstock.  I have TIPS for prepping your cardstock cover that we will be covering in my next post so make sure you are following me!  
Start thinking about your supplies and pulling things together that you might want to use in your Faux-Dori.  If you want to order your product, like mine, I encourage you to place your order ASAP as product sells out FAST at CTMH!  I will include the CTMH supply list below for your convenience.  You can also find the supply list on the last post.
