Book binding adventures

I love books, and as you know I love journals as well, so when I stumbled upon Karla Dudley’s workshop “Journal 3 Ways” I was intregued… and then I saw the journals we would be making and the fact that there were cool downloads as well… That was it. I was sold.  So all images you see contain brushes and papers designed by Karla 🙂

The first journal (I still have to cut the edges so they’re level)

Then after I finished that one, I just had to make another using some lush paper I had left over from “Express Yourself  DIY”

Week two was the Perfect Bind method. I honestly didn’t think about binding books this way. But having said that, one of my favourite books (Cathy Zielske’s Clean and Simple Scrapbooking part 2) is bound using the perfect bind method… and several pages have come away from the book through excessive use lol. Although I’d say it’s not my number one, I had a ton of fun doing it, it looks just lush and I only lost 3 pages after binding 🙂

And like a completely numpty, I put the covers on the wrong way so the book is back to front… DOH!

I seriously want to do another one of these 🙂  I’ve got the book binding bug now, and I’m seriously going to be making a few more things!
