After making my first journal, I wanted to make a second, better one. This time I got a ruler, better scissors, and paper I really liked. I was a lot more focused for this one and knew what details needed the most attention. Like stated in my other post, I didn’t know I’d eventually make a blog, so I can’t show you step by step, only the process I followed.
Here it is (almost) finished:
To decorate the cover, I used pieces from all sorts of kits/pads:
The words in white are from the Tim Holtz chit-chat sticker pad which you can find here.
You can find the “Wanderlust” and “Happy Life” stickers from this MAMBI sticker pad.
As for the elephant, I cut that out from a scrapbook paper pad I’m still trying to find a link for!
The “Oh Joy” mason jar I thought could represent a honey jar, but the more I look at it, the more I see a congratulations for a baby boy, ha. I still think it’s pretty cute. It came from this Project Life kit.
Here is the inside!
Here’s a picture of the signature in place
I had 5 sheets of white cardstock left after making my last journal so I could only make one signature for this one. I decided to just staple along the crease to combine them all together. Usually it looks cleaner, but I missed the spot where I wanted it the first time.
Because I put more effort into this and actually knew what I was doing, I have grown to LOVE this journal. Just like the other, I still don’t know what to use it for! I want it to be perfect (ha,good one). Help me decide? 🙂
