Handmaded Stitched Journal / Diary

** SOLD **

This journal handmade by me has lots of pages to write your memories and also includes pockets and tags for scrapbooking photos.  It measures 6-1/2" wide by 8-1/2" high and is 3-1/4" thick. The book is made from scratch including the covers, spine and the 4 stitched signatures attached to the spine! There are 112 journaling pages which I coffee-stained and inked, giving the pages lots of texture and an aged look. I used good quality 60 lb paper for the journaling pages. There is some stamping throughout as well as a couple of paper bags, envelopes and file folders as inserts.

Use it as a journal, diary or scrapbook mini album. (If including photos, make sure to use copies - although the pages are acid-free the coffee staining process affects this.)

There are minimal embellishments on this book to make it more "portable". The covers are held closed with a buckle and strap. I attached a handmade flower to the spine and there is a small journaling spot on the back of the book for journaling or a date.   The covers and spine are made of wrapped chipboard.

Below is a video that shows the pages, flaps and pullout tags in more detail. I'm also including more photos below.  If you have difficulties running the video you can view it on my YouTube channel at

There are over 112 pages for journaling in this album - not all pages are shown in the photos below.

Comes from a pet-free and smoke free home.

Please do not let young children play with this item as small embellishments might become detached which could be a choking hazard.
