“Mom, would you make a journal for my trip to Mexico?” Gee, let me think, YES! It was a rush job to get her journal and ones for our other friends on the trip, but I got it done! I’ll put together a tutorial on the mechanics later in the week.
I start with stacks of various types of things to insert into the book. Tags, pages to write on, money envelopes, die cuts, scraps, plastic pockets, mini file folders, really, anything I have on hand. Since my daughter is prolific writer I made sure she had plenty of places to write. The bumpier things tend to go in the beginning so it is easier/smoother to write on the later pages.
