Mini Journal






I found an article in a book The Art of Fabric Books by Jan Bode Smiley and it had a lovely little journal made of fabric. It is equally adaptable to paper so I have to admit to a small addiction to these journals. You will probably find at least one in every handbag, table, drawer or anywhere I need to make notes. I have a tutorial for the basic design of the journal on Scrapwest this week if you would like to give it a try sometime.


Here is one I did earlier :-) on blotting paper distressed with coffee and a few pages stitched together to make pockets. TFL.

Stunning, simply stunning. I adore the first pages and the one with the butterfly, but the others are gorgeous too.
