About This Class


Did you know you can create your own journal for sketchbook in 15 minutes or less?

Recently, I realized there were not journals or sketchbooks with the paper that I wanted to use and so I decided to create my own.

In this class, I'm going to take you step-by-step through the process of how you can literally create your own journal or sketchbook in 15 minutes or less. The hardest part for me was figuring out the tools and equipment. I researched and it was very confusing to me. Therefore, I'm going to show you exactly what you need and provide links to where you can purchase the tools in your class resources.

By the end of this class, you'll have two journals or sketchbooks using a pamphlet stitch. This is a very simple stitch that you can do very easily and create a sketchbook you can easily take with you to practice your lettering on the go.

Anyone can do this and you will create journals you can give away as gifts, sell, or simply use yourself.

Shelley is a great teacher! Easy to understand instructions. This is a simple project. Knowing the actual items to buy for my daughter to make her own journal was very helpful.

Art can help you:

Relax and have fun. It's been an amazing form of self-care for me. Discover the power of color. Creating art can bring you so much joy. Create beautiful pieces you can...
