Erin Perry sent me a whole package of tiny vintage postcards from Budapest. I’m using them as tabs on some pages. I’ll add some writing to this one later.
If you’re in the FTB class, I made this journal kind of the way I made my Inspiration Journal. Also like the Hidden Binding journal…Except I used one of those old photo scrapbooks from the 30’s and 40’s that are all over ebay. You know the kind with the tie on the side? Black pages on the inside. I cut that long rectangular cover in half.
Half of it is the front cover and the other half is the back. It’s leather embossed chipboard. I think. Those old scrapbooks have so much delicious potential! And they are ridiculously inexpensive. I might make another inspiration journal from the back cover.
Good thing I made my elastic closure really loose. It fits perfectly now and won’t get all stretched out. I’m still stuffing photos in, but I’m nearly done. I’ll post better pics of each double-sided spread once I’m completely finished.
