Handmade Book Shabby Chic Journal



Sorry folks….Im whispering in this video! At least Im talking eh? lol. It was 6am in the morning and I didnt want to awaken my Scrubby so I had to whisper. But you’ll get the gist of it. I make my own books, Im self taught in bookbinding. So this has been made from scratch. I sewed all the pages together, made the covers etc. I will be uploading the process of making this book shortly, so if you fancy learning how to make your own books from scratch keep an eye out for that video. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me. Thanks for you comments.

    aw Lee.. how cute that yer whispering so you don't want to disturb yer Hubs! 🙂 I love the book… making one like that from start to finish is somewhat intimidating for me. But, like you, I never throw away books. My other passion/addiction 🙂 books/journals. love them! adore the simplicity of the cover… gorgeous! x's & o's –McCine

    @1craftchick Thank you so much for you lovely comment. Sorry I havent uploaded anything in ages, my room is a bit of a mess at the minute as we are decorating so its turned in to a dumping ground for paint pots…..and not the type I like to use, lol. TFW and I'll be back with more videos soon. Lee x

    @TracysTreasures24 Hi Tracy. Thank you so much for commenting on my journal. I have more videos coming soon. Thanks for watching. Lee xx

    @GWest5068 Thank you so much. I promise more videos are coming. Im trying to sort out my mess of a room. Its very surprising what you can squeeze in to a teeny tiny box room, lol! Its taking much longer than expected to clear it all out. Thank you for watching. Lee xx

    @CraftsDotCupCake Hi Becca. Thank you so much. It was actually my birthday on Friday 17th. I had a really lovely birthday, thank you. Lee x

    Hi Lee, Very nice project.. I must have missed the updates.. Sometimes when I get busy I miss a lot of videos.. I came over because I heard on Tricia's channel that it's (or was, not sure) your B-day.. So I came over to wish you a Happy Birthday, and if I'm late I'm really sorry, Hope you had a great day!! 🙂
    xoxo

    Lovely book! I especially love the cameo. Cannot wait for the tutorial for the binding. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, JJ

    @craftynena Aww thank you so much for your lovely comment on my wee journal. Thank you so much for watching. Lee x

    @101shabbychic Awww thanks so much Sherri. Coming from the Queen of Shabby Chic Im honoured you like my wee journal. Im in the process of uploading tutorials on the bookbinding process of making this journal. So if you fancy seeing how to make a journal from scratch, those videos should be up soon. Once YT decides to upload them that is! HD takes forever to upload. Nice to see you back again Sherri. Lee x

    @Alyluvsminialbums Awww thanks Alyson. I am in the process of uploading 5 parter videos on the process of bookbinding this journal. It takes forever to upload HD but they should be up by tomorrow hopefully. So if you fancy learning how to make your own books, watch this space. Thanks for watching. Lee x

    @linexxa Hi Line. Im actually uploading the bookbinding videos as I type this. However, Im uploading in HD so it may take all night for all 5 parts to upload. But keep a wee eye out, they will be up in the next day or so. Thanks for watching, Lee x

    @alittleshabbychic Hi Tricia. I got the cameo from a big bag of jewellery I bought from Fiona and I was so glad it was in it too. Thank you for watching. Lee x

    @janstok011 Hi Janet, thank you so much for watching. The clasp is a swivel clasp. Tim Holtz sells them but I actually buy mine on ebay. I will pm you the link if you like? Lee x
