How to do Pamphlet Stitch inside Travelers Notebook Insert

Sharing How to do Pamphlet Stitch inside Travelers Notebook Insert. Using Calico Collage images for the focal point on my covers on top of various colors of cardstock I share how to sew the pages together using a Pamphlet Stitch and make Travelers Notebook inserts.

My inserts measure 8.25 in. tall by 4.25 in. wide. I use 12 sheets of paper folded in half for a total of 48 pages inside the insert. Some of the papers used, scrapbook papers, notebook paper, grid paper, mop up sheets when I spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and more.

Once the size of a journal has been determined I make a template for my hole placement. I like the holes to be evenly spaced. The template will have three holes. One in the center and the other two will be about 1.25 inches from the ends.

Creating these journals is a great way to use up those papers in your stash that you don’t madly love. Sometimes I look at the papers in a scrapbook pad and if some are not really to my liking to make a greeting card I’ll use it in a journal. These are still pretty papers, but may be limited to larger layouts.

Calico Collage images from the Spring Peacock, Natures Glory and Unicorn Magic journal kits were used on the covers. These print two images per a page. Designed to be folded in half and used as a journal page. I had a few left over from making journals and I thought these would make great cover images. I just cut the page in half and trimmed down the image to be 4 inches wide. Then I added either washi tape or ribbon to the top and bottom of the image. Lastly, I added sewing stitches all around the image.

Here is a couple of photos of my Book Binding Cradle. My husband made the cradle based off of my needs and scraps of lumber that we had laying around. I chose to have one made out of wood because the cardboard ones for sale seemed flimsy to me. This is very sturdy. In fact, it is almost the height of a short stool when turned on the end and my husband was using it as a chair while I was crafting. lol

I made a bunch of these Travelers Notebooks because I’ll be in a show in August. No need to wait until the last moment to get things ready.

Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit

So in love with Calico Collage Unicorn Magic journal kit. So I’m sharing a journal I made, Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit. This was a special request from Tracy that I met through Junk Journal Junkies.

Unicorn Junk Journal

The Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit is my second Unicorn Junk Journal. I really do love this journal kit, the colors are so beautiful, the images are fabulous.

For this journal, I decided to use some pink copy paper for several of the pages. On the back side of these pages are lines I printed. Then I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to add shimmer and texture via a stencil. The transfer from one page to the other from the stencil turned out so cool.

The new dies and old dies in my stash are getting a good workout with these junk journals. I’ve been able to dig through my scraps of paper and turn these into journal spots for the journals I’ve been making. It feels good to use up these bits of paper.

My friends may say I’m a hoarder, but I feel that it is justified when the items I save that might be trash to another are perfect for junk journals. If you have the space to save these items, why not?

This journal has already been shipped to its new home and Tracy sent me a message that she loves what I created in this Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit.

Here is a video flip through of Unicorn Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Kit.

Unicorn Magic Junk Journal

I’m so in love with this Unicorn Magic Junk Journal. Hopefully you love it too. I used the Calico Collage Digital journal kit Unicorn Magic to make this journal along with stamps, scrapbook papers and the mop up pages when I use Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.

There is so much beautiful color throughout the journal. If you are a pink and purple fan, then this is a perfect color combo for you. Because doesn’t everyone love Unicorns?! Ever since I was a young girl I have loved Unicorns.

When Norella the owner and creator of Calico Collage said she was making a Unicorn Kit I was super excited! I think I responding in all caps that I loved the designs.. Working with these images has given me such joy!

The journal measures 5.5 in x 7.5 in. with a 1.5 in. spine. It has three signatures of 10 sheets of paper which make 120 pages to journal or add items. There are 9 different altered paper clips throughout. I made eight pockets out of pages from old books and decorated these pockets with various colors of washi tape. Pink lace seam binding ties the journal closed.

When I spray items with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists I line a box with a sheet of paper. This sheet of paper is an old letterhead that belonged to my husband. The company logo changed and they told him to throw out the paper and they sent new paper to him. Well, I knew that was a waste of paper so I kept it and I used it as a mop up sheet.

The results of using this old letterhead to soak up the glimmer mists make a beautiful paper that is perfect for pages in a junk journal. I trimmed off the letterhead log as best I could. When some of the images remain I find clever ways to cover it up. In the Unicorn Magic Junk Journal, I created tuck spots. Some fo these tuck spots are long strips of paper. Some tuck spots are just enough to cover the corner.

On many of the pages, I used stamps to add more interest. I love looking at different images and colors in a journal. Adding stamps throughout helps to not leave any blank pages.
