This journal was enjoyable to make. Mindlessly (well almost mindlessly) sewing stuff together while your nerves are knitting over life events is a wonderful thing. I have actually used up all my snippets and all pieces and scraps in the drawers that would fit in this journal. I had planned to sew this into a hard cover old book cover but it didn't fit after a got all the signatures together so that was just another opportunity to sew another cover together. It was rather difficult to sew the signatures but it finally came together. Now I will start to use it as a journal and write in all of the blank places.
You can see here how the Distrezz it all tool distresses the edges of the paper.
HERE is a YOUTUBE video of the book if you want to see it all. It's only about 4 minutes long.
