About This Class

In this easy class I will demonstrate how I make my journals with:

  • Elastic band closures TWO ways, vertical and horizontal.
  • Inside cover pocket and expandable pocket.
  • Perforated pages at the end of the journal, so you can tear off a page if you want to.
  • New chain stitching for the spine.

I hope you can get excited over making this easy journal and can learn something new every day!

Hi I'm Maribel a Graphic Designer by trade and a lover of all handmade things.

I find inspiration everywhere and try to keep making things, some projects I finish others not so much...but I believe that getting my hands engaged it's half the battle, I love to share what I have learned thru trial and error, so you don't have to waste your precious time and can get your creative juices flowing.

Enjoy where you are, but get excited about the future!
