Last month I attended a crop at Scrappin' Time and I met a very nice lady that I am embarrassed to admit I forgot her name.  She showed me how to make these nice journals which make great gifts.
So I can't remember her name, but I'm hoping I remember how to make the journals.  You'll need a 12 x 12 piece of color card stock (CS).  Score it at 2-3/4", 7-1/4" and 7-1/2".  Make sure to crease the score lines well.
You will need to purchase a legal-size ruled pad cut in half.  Office Depot will cut them for a very small fee.  Place sticky tape to the top, bottom and sides on the back of the pad.  Remove the sticky tape and adhere it to the right side of the scored CS.  The finished journal measures 4-1/2" x 12".
Fold over the left side that measures 2-3/4" and place sticky tape to the top and bottom edges only, leaving a pocket to place miscellaneous items inside. 

Now you're ready to decorate the front of the journal.  I used the Fun Flower die by Stampin' Up and the Flourish #2 by Sizzix which are embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper and Swiss Dots impression folders.  Also added some pretty photo corners and red rhinestones.  This came out better than I expected and I will definitely be making a few more.

I want to wish everyone a great weekend and invite you to come back Monday for more creative ideas.

Sending you embossed hugs, Erlinda
