Show And Tell: Printable Journal Kit

Last week, my friend Hellen sent photos of the journal she just finished assembling with my new Secret Garden printable journal kit.

I thought she did such a great job that I decided to share it with you.  She really personalised it and added her own unique touch.

That's what I love about these kits.  The tutorial that I include with each one gives you the basics for assembling, but the creativity is all yours and the possibilities are endless.

For example here, Hellen adapted the journal for her own preferences.  Here's what she said about it:

'I made a couple of changes—glued a decorative paper inside covers; tied ribbon ends inside front cover and wound ribbon round book to tie across opening of journal; and I opted not to seal the cover. I had such a lovely time arranging all the embellishments and inserted some of the tags inside glued on envelopes—complete with ribbon or twine.'

She also added that she's making a few more for gift giving.  (I assembled one already and gave it to my mother for her birthday.  I saved all the embellishments, cards and hang tags for her to add in).

Hellen, thank you for taking the time to photograph your pretty creation.  I love it!

Pin It!

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I apologize in advance if time escapes me and I don't reply to each comment, but I read each and every one and they really make my day!
