I've built the foundation for my Project Summer 2012 Journal. Months ago I had purchased a set of 3 Cartapaglia Tree Free Recycled Notebooks (made in Italy) from Barnes & Noble. Two notebooks are lined, one is graph paper. I knew I wanted to use them, I just wasn't sure for what. Then on a recent trip to Pat Cataan's, I bought two Little Yellow Bicycle Medley Album Kits. These kits are made up of envelopes, pockets, inserts and a tag. You can also buy coordinating products. The themes of the two kits are "Saturdays" (shown here) and "Paradise". The kits can be used on their own, but I knew right away I wanted to incorporate them with the notebooks for a more versatile and pretty journal.
I have been saving stubs and such over the past month and now that I finally got my book done, I can begin to fill it up.
