Tutorial - How to make a journal from a book



I found the book to make this journal from my local thrift shop. The covers measure 5-3/4" wide by 8-1/2" high with a 2-1/4" thick spine.  You can use any size book, just adjust the number of signatures or pages as needed.

The paper stack I used for this project is titled "Storyteller" by Linda Wood and I purchased it from Michaels. I picked up a sketch book from a dollar store that contains 60 lb acid free paper and used that for my journaling pages, and also for coffee staining. My dollar store also stocks bamboo cord which is perfect for binding the pages.

You can see a process video for coffee staining paper by Lori (Just A Girl From The Bay) on YouTube at https://youtu.be/dJlg-OWUtrI.


  

Below are the supplies I used to make this journal.
  • Paper trimmer
  • Bone folder
  • Hot glue gun, white glue, two-sided tape
  • Thrift shop book
  • Medium to heavy woven fabric for the spine (denim from an old pair of jeans should work too!)
  • Cardstock, scrapbook paper, white and coffee stained papers for journaling
  • Eyelets, hole punch
  • Seam binding for the closure
  • Doilies, clear sheet protectors
  • Ribbon ends, beads, safety pin, charms, chain for making and embellishing tabs
  • Large needle and twine to stitch pages
... and here are links to my two-part tutorial for making this journal:

Tutorial 3-Piece Special Event Set


Includes:

* Scrapbook mini album *
* Guestbook *
* Greeting Card/Money Holder *

In this 3-project tutorial, I show you how to create a scrapbook mini album with fold-out waterfalls and pockets, a guestbook, and a greeting/card money holder.  Make your next special event extra special by coordinating these three pieces. Perfect for a wedding, anniversary, special birthday or any celebration in need of that special touch.

The scrapbook mini album is a fold out folio style album that measures 7-1/4"w by 9"h with a 1-3/4" thick spine and holds a total of 10 pages. There are 4 waterfalls so there's plenty of space for photos, and six pocket pages for storing more photos, tags and memorabilia.

The guestbook measures 9"w by 6"h and is bound together with ribbon. It can double as a journal or a mini album. 

The greeting card/money holder measures 11-1/4"w by 11-1/4"w and 11-1/4" high and is made to resemble an elaborate two-tier cake. There is a slot at the top to insert cards that drop down into the bottom of the box.


The tutorial is in PDF format and contains 54 pages of extremely detailed step-by-step instructions with over 200 photos that show how I created each project from start to finish

Everything is made from scratch: the construction of the album and guestbook (covers, binding and pages), as well as the two-tier greeting card/money holder box and lid. Measurements are included for each piece you will need to cut. I also show how I embellished each item in my coordinating set. 

In addition to the written tutorial, I'm including free links to my series of unlisted ONLINE VIDEOS where I'm actually creating each item and explaining as I go along. The videos follow the same order as the written instructions so it's easy to follow along.


Below is a video that shows the scrapbook mini album, the guestbook and the greeting card/money holder in this tutorial.

Tutorial - Oven Recipe Card Box

In my video tutorial, I show you how to create an adorable little oven that houses 4x6" recipe cards. The oven measures approximately 8"h x 7"w. It's about 4-1/4" deep so there's lots of room for recipes.

For both ovens shown, I used papers from the Graphic 45 Cafe Parisian stack, but as always I encourage you to use whatever papers and embellishments you already have in your stash. I'm including further below a link to the list of supplies I used in this project, as well as the cutting sizes for the various pieces.

Here is a video that shows the first oven I made. The links to my 3-part videos will be included below as videos are uploaded. (You can also view it directly on my YouTube channel at https://youtu.be/Z40V4XxUuJI).

TUTORIAL - 7x9 Interactive Scrapbook Mini Album


In this tutorial, I show you how to create my Interactive 7 x 9 Scrapbook Mini AlbumThe album measures 7”w x 9” h with a thickness of 3-1/2”. There are 10 pages of interactive flaps, pockets and waterfalls (including my new pocket waterfall which I've never done before).  The album on the left (pictured above) is the actual album I make in the videos that accompany my written tutorial. The album on the right is the demo album I refer to as an example.


I show you how to make the album from scratch including covers and binding pages into the album, but you can also use a Heartfelt Creations premade Flip-Fold album if you prefer since they are exactly the same size as the album in my tutorial.

The tutorial is in PDF format and contains over 70 pages of extremely detailed step-by-step instructions with over 350 photos that show how I created this project from start to finish. Measurements are included for each piece you will need to construct the album.


In addition to the written tutorial, I'm including free links to my series of 20 ONLINE VIDEOS that show how to make the journal album as I create a brand new one from start to finish. (I plan on making these unlisted videos available to everyone who purchases my tutorial for as long as the service provider can continue hosting them for free.)


Below are videos of the two albums I made based on this tutorial. (If you have difficulties viewing the videos, you can click the links below each one to view them on my YouTube channel.)
