You probably know by now that I like making all sorts of journals…
Whether that be art journals, travel journals or junk journals.
I thoroughly enjoy the process of creating these journals and once finished, I have a place to store my artwork, doodles, thoughts and dreams etc.
This week I created this pretty blue and mauve French vintage farmhouse journal using the Janaury kit from the Handmade Club.
I combined the papers from the kit with a few coffee stained papers from my stash.
This pretty journal has 3 signatures that contain a total of 24 pages.
I love how soft and romantic the cover design turned out. To keep the journal closed I’ve used a length of pale blue seam binding.
If you like the cover papers, I’ve just added them as a PDF to the Club kit as a bonus printable, so Handmade Club members are welcome to download it from the folder.
The inside pages are a collection of beautiful vintage French receipts, blue and mauve papers, and coffee dyed papers.
I’ve added lots of pockets to store the tags and journaling cards contained in the kit this month…
Plus, there are all sorts of pretty embellishments made with titbits from my crafting stash.
As I’m going to use this journal for a trip I have planned, I’ve left lots of blank pages to write on.
The finished journal measures 16 cm wide x 22 cm high and will fit easily into my carry bag.
Have you ever made your own journals?
I love that you can make them any size you like…. in fact, I think my next one will be a tiny mini journal… just for fun!
What would you use this journal for?
