Create to Remember Journal

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick little journal I created for Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team. I used the Passport Book Diecut and cut the spine and covers from Mat Board. Then from patterned cardstock I cut four covers for the insides and outsides of the journal, embossed and painted the spine and then adhered everything together.

Also the team is collaborating with Crescent Products this month and I used Rendr Paper for the inside pages on my little journal. 

This paper you can paint on both sides and there is no bleed thru on either side of the paper.

Each of the three signatures has five papers per signature. I used twine to sew in the pages.

The spine I tied off  ribbon, trim and fiber to each of the twine that is holding the pages in the journal.

Now if I want to draw or play with my watercolors I can. The journal doesn't take up a lot of room and will be easy to carry.

Be sure to hop on over to Eileen's blog to see the rest of the Inspiration Teams project and if you have any questions about this projects please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
