DIY~ Turnng a Passport holder into a Traveler’s Notebook

Hello! In this video I show you how I turn a Passport Holder into a Pocket Size Traveler’s Notebook. To warn you ahead of time, there is quit a bit of banging with the tools so prepare to turn down the sound! LOL! Hope you are inspired to create one yourself if you come across a Passport holder! I did look online and there are other eyelet punches that can be purchased for the hard to reach spaces like the middle of the notebook, check the sewing area of your craft store too!

Summer Journaling Week 5~ Prepping Journal Pages

Hello and welcome to week 5 in my Summer Journaling series! In this video I show you how I prep journal pages for future journaling.  How many of us who paint our journal pages have to wait for the paint to dry? If your like me I am so easily distracted I find it better to add watercolor to pages before I am ready to journal so when I am ready, I have painted pages already. Does that makes sense? In this video I show you what I do. I hope you are inspired to be creative today!!

Thanks for watching,
