Today I’m sharing a hand stitched circle journal that I created to use for the 2020 Mission: Inspiration monthly art challenge Facebook Group. This is the pre-decorated stage! Click below to watch how I created it on my YouTube channel.
In this project for Day 6 of my 7 Days of Christmas series, I wanted to make a slimline handmade Christmas themed journal to record memories and photos of our family Christmas in 2018. This is what I created.
I’ve decided to put the gallery of photos before the YouTube video this time, as I think you can better get a feel for the journal before you watch how it was put together!
I will be making another video in the coming few weeks that will have some decorating of the inside of the journal ready for our Christmas get together!
If you’d like to watch how I created this memory journal, step by step and from start to finish – click the YouTube link below.
If you haven’t had a chance to catch up on my 7 Days of Christmas from 2017 – you can watch them all below!
This is a Vintage travel style handmade journal I created as a commission for Glenn in Arizona. Glenn asked for a journal packed with vintage travel themed ephemera and pages, with plenty of space to write in!

This is my first ever attempt at bookbinding and making my own “proper” journal. The project is in response to Nik The Booksmith’s classics challenge to create a journal based on a literary classic – in my case I chose H.G. Wells War of the Worlds. One of my all-time favourite books.

To watch the flip through of my journal click the YouTube link below. This is NOT a process video as it took me almost two weeks to create from start to finish with a few breaks in between waiting for various resources to arrive from around the globe! However, I’m sure you’ll be able to appreciate the work that I put into it and as it is my very first attempt at a full binding project – you’ll forgive me if I get a few things wrong or did a few things wrong…it’s a learning curve!
I have included a few photos in a gallery below if you want a closer look at some of the pages in this journal.
