This is a pair of journals that I recently completed. It was my first attempt at the coptic stitch binding. The internet is the best! You can learn how to do almost anything.
I love the paper that I used for the covers, it is from a company called WRMemory Keepers. I love the brown-ness of it all. I covered the chipboard accents with paper from Basic Grey and used a few brads to embellish them.
