Making a Journal from Greetings Cards Tutorials are Done!

I feel like the title not only needs a capital 'D', but the whole 'DONE' in capitals. My oh my these videos have taken soooooo much effort, I didn't realise.
The journals are VERY simple in principle and to create so I had no idea the videos would take me so much longer than usual, but they are done now. Whoop!!
So if you want to know how to make one of these art books from your recycling I will be uploading the tutorials on my youtube channel tonight.
The tutorial will be in two parts, so the second half might have to be uploaded tomorrow, as we have notoriously bad internet connection around here on Friday evenings...but the three steps in the first video are enough to keep you going I'm sure :)
If you do head over please hit the 'like' on the video or leave me a comment so I know that they were worth all that effort :)
After these go up I have two more video tutorials I am going to show you, one is on 5 different mini books to make to put into the pockets of this journal, then the final one is the making of those chunky beads you can see on the spine. But it might be a few days, or more, before I get these up as I feel my eyes need a break from the editing machine lol
Dont forget the yellow journal is in this giveaway, linking with Paint Party Friday, Studio Sneak Peek and Artists in Blogland so I can see what everyone else is up to, much love Jennibellie xxx

  3. Jenny, your journals are fabulous. Colour is obviously one of your great strengths. These look like so much fun to make. I've always wanted to learn about handmade books, or book binding, so i'll be watching for those videos.
    Thanks for sharing such beautiful work.

  30. Wow, these journals are brilliant and I can imagine the time it has taken to do them. Briefly caught your first video last night, exciting, but will visit again with more time.

    You have remimded me that I have a stash of old birthday cards saved from over the years in a box somewhere, which I must now fish out and put to good use. I knew there was a reason why I had not thrown them away!

  51. I just found your video tutorials and studio. Thank you so much for sharing your creative spirit and ideas. I just finished making a greeting card journal. You make it look so easy, but the beading on the spine was very difficult. I really like your ideas and it was great fun. Thank you for posting your videos, they were awesome! I will keep checking back and hope you had an awesome holiday in Venice!

  58. Your Greetings Cards video gave me the answer for what to do with the cards my mother saved over the years. I had just kept them in boxes, knowing they were precious but no clue about how to turn them into something that would make them readily available to enjoy by others. Mother would have loved seeing them in a book. She also collected postcards. Any ideas about what to do with them? (P.S. I've also made a couple of books with other cards that didn't need to be kept intact. - love the results!)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Beautiful journals! I have been keeping my cards and plan to follow you video. You projects are always amazing and look forward to watching them!
