Journaling part 1
Have you made a journal?
Do you know of a site that has journal galleries?
What are some ideas that you have or have seen that would help us to make a journal?
What is an easy journal to make?
What supplies do we need to make one?
use brown paper bags for the pages! Looks real earthly!
Corrogate the cover
Use small legal pads or pads of paper
The dollar stores have inexpensive paper pads you can get and cover.. they also have small note books that you can RE cover
Lots of embellishments! Dont be shy! Stamped images! Cover them with UTEE
Pretty wallpaper pieces would be nice on the cover, Julie! :-) Hugs Ellie
The only kind of journal I ever made was with half sheets of cardstock and I tied it together with jute. I made it for a friend who loves poetry and so on the front I stamped poetry. She loved it. One of my friends suggested a gardening journal. Kyrie

RS SWAP Journal for who you sent/received daily/weekly
Penpal Journal of letters sent/rec'd.
Health Journal (document your health problems when necessary)
What I Ate Journal (for those who want to document and watch it)
Grandma Journal (for granny to write about the kids, for them later!)

Beautiful sayings/quotes (for that tad of inspiration when you need it)
In my mind, a PRETTY JOURNAL can be used for most anything that needs to be documented by someone... its a wonderful gift that will make them WANT to contribute to it here and there. Espeically for creative gals like stampers, these could be wonderful to pass on or just for your own creative outlet.. and they HELP you too. Wendy, Inky Trail News
My favorite one is the one I made for my sweetheart for Valentines Day. "99 REASONS" why I love you. I use 3-ring note book so that I can add pages at will. I also use the ones that have clear covers so that I can decorate the outsides to relate what is inside. This one has old, favorite Valentines inside the clear cover. Down the spine (under the plastic cover) I also slip the title of the book decorated to match the front and back.
