The Pocket Notebook measures 6 3/4" x 4 1/2" with a spine that can adjust from 3/8" to almost 2"! String it with elastic, hemp, ribbon or twine. So many options for this fun die!
My project for today is a a planner notebook and it is a bit of a hybrid because I made the cover using 2 different materials: leather and mat board. I love the look and feel of leather but I also love the shape and structure you get from the matboard.
Time to play...
I cut the back of the Pocket Notebook from mat board that I had covered on both side with designer paper. (and again I am using images from the other journal so the pictures don't actually match!) I adhered the front to the back with leather glue.
Here is the outside of the finished Pocket Notebook. The black elastic lacing on the spine is to hold the signatures inside.
I used a piece of flair to gather all the elastic on the outside. The flair has a pin back which makes it easy to keep the elastic closure attached when the notebook is open!
I created the focal image on the front with a stamp from Blank Page Muse and Sculpey clay (and I will share a tutorial on that tomorrow) and adhered it to the front of the journal with 1/4" Supertape.
Here's a quick peek at the inside. I found this weekly planner at the Dollar Tree. Fits perfectly!
I also found a monthly planner that covers 2 years. I replaced the cover with paper that coordinates with the inside of the book.
I still have room for one more signature (see the unused elastic in the spine in the photo below?). I will definitely be taking advantage of the fact that I can use the same die to cut pages. I need someplace to write notes and reminders!
