If you have read this blog before, you might have noticed I love Austria, it’s our second home. This summer we have had two wonderful holiday there. For each holiday I make myself a journal. This is the one I made for our week in Obergurgl Tirol.
I made the base of the cover from recycled box card so it gave me a nice stiff cover.
I covered it with the beautiful Craft Consortium Winter Woodland papers and added some decorations cut on my Silhouette Cameo.
I added pockets for keepsakes and then for the journal itself, I folded A4 paper in half and cut a cover from one of the Craft Consortium papers and stitched it all together.
I used elastic to hold the journal into the cover so I could remove it to write in it each day.
I couldn’t resist the cute little metal acorns from Craft Consortium and tied them onto the elastic.
I also made a elastic wrap to hold the cover shut when it full of keepsakes.
Thought it would make a nice wrist wrap too!
