I am so excited to share this project with you. I followed a tutorial by Marianne Kensington (click here for the tutorial), A Pocketfull of Vintage, on YouTube and used the Rosewood collection from Colorbok, which I adore, and created this recycled journal using a hardcover book. I had such a blast making this one that I am on role making more of them. Marianne did say they can be addicting. I am even making one for Hubs because he has 5 pages left in his current journal.
I love all the layers, brads, flowers, fussy cut elements and trinkets on this journal!
A cross stitch binding method from one of Marianne's tutorials.
I added a pocket to the front cover and created some decorative paper clips for use in the journal.
I am so proud of this journal and how it turned out!! Thank you all so much for stopping by and seeing what's up in the studio. A big Thanks to my sister Kenya for her input. Okay everyone, I'm out. I will see you all next time.
