I had so much fun doing this. I learned some good lessons for my next one. I used card stock for the end pages and they are way too thin. Also I used a nice vintage cotton fabric that was also a bit thin, but all I had. Maybe I'll use it again with padding. The glue seemed to bleed through and leave marks. I didn't trim all my pages either; but I did neaten the ends. It is all watercolor paper, each signature was 2 sheets. I am so happy I did this and I will definitely do it again. Nia's instructions are excellent, easy to follow and everything came together so well. YAY!!!
