A while ago my cousin asked me if I would make her a journal – she has never kept a journal before – but inspired by my posts she asked me to make her a journal. What better way to share the gift of journaling.
What sort of journal do you create for a first time journaler? I have used a lot of journals – lined and unlined, sketchbooks, writing journals. For this journal I decided to go with her favourite colours.
For this journal I have used plain book board for the covers and Creative Memories photo mats for the pages and bound it together with spiral binding. It has 24 leaves, totalling 48 pages back and front a library card pocket and quotes on vellum – just right for a beginning journaler. Hope she like it!
I have about a dozen of these in this colour scheme as well as blue and pink – I’m thinking about setting up a Etsy store and turning my surplus scrapbooking supplies into journals – what do you think?

I am sure she will love this! How thoughtful and creative of you! I think an etsy shop would be wonderful!!
