So much fun! I used manilla file folders for the pages since I didn't have any time cards. I sewed the binding fabric to each side of the pages. I've never done anything like this before. I loved doing the collage on each page!
I'm entering this journal into the June challenge over on Mini Album Maker's Challenge.
This is the journal opened all the way out.
This is the back of the journal (and the front cover again). I used two Tim Holtz stencils and Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick to jazz the pages up. They can still be used for journaling.

How wonderful to have been inspired by another Cindy and I would never have guessed you had not created in this way before. What a lovely and unique design what a pleasure it must be to open it all out and see all your collage and embellishments. A fabulous way to display, i'm so glad you shared it with us over at Mini Album Makers.ReplyDelete

How fun!! I'm with Anne - your design is great, and the collaging is perfect! Love how you jazzed up the covers, but still honor the ability to journal. Best, LynnReplyDelete
