here) I had an A4 notepad that was just lying around the loft - (I think I bought it when I was 16 and decided I would become a novelist ... think too much Anne of Green Gable and Little Women responsible for that notion!!) So I chopped it up to make the Journal, and had some left over sections, and so I had the idea of making this book.
It means I have also got to play with my Cinch ... fabulous toy, that is rapidly gaining dust ... I dont use it nearly as much as I should. The diary opens up with a magnetic catch.
As I you know I am on a mission to clear my scraps ... I do dip into my scraps a lot however I think the frustration comes from the fact that I add to the scrap pile as quickly or if not quicker than I use it up, so my resolve now is when I do cut into nice new paper, I keep going until it is all used up and I have no scraps left.
As a result, I had just intended to decorate the cover of this book, however in the mission to use up all my papers, I have decorated all the insides too ... and have fancy matting and layering on the back page ... to house my "Handmade by" details...... so this will turn into a rather picture heavy post!!
I do have the tiniest pile of scraps left from this .... however it was 12pm last night That I finished so past bed time!! So next time I'm in the loft the 1st task will be to make a card with those few scraps.
