Hard Cover Journal with Soft Touches

I love making and using soft cover journals, but I also love the durability of a hard cover. So for today’s project, I’m bringing them together to make a hard cover laminated journal with lots of fabric touches to give it a soft cover feel!

I used some pretty papers from the Boho Dreams collection and the Lime Colour Splash to make some perfectly matching cotton lace for the closure.

I laminated two of the papers to make a cover for a Traveller’s Notebook style journal where I could add some inserts from my own stash that seemed to match perfectly!

It was all so easy that I even added a cute little matching bookmark.

I sprayed some plain ivory cotton lace with the Lime colour splash to get the perfect green (I think it’s my favourite part of the whole journal!) and added some rhinestones for a little sparkle and shine.

If you want to see how quick and easy it is to make this fun project, check out the video below for step by step instructions.
