Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary year book journal / mini album - tutorial

Cover yearbook  journal


Hi Everyone. I want to share this new year book journal  and i film it when i made this journal so there will be a tutorial how to make it. The journal has 4 pages and are made with thread binding.It also have a calendar inside. Used chipboard for the cover and the fold out flaps.
In the first video i will show what you need to make it and also the book binding cover. This can also be used as a mini album.Hope you will give it a try and have fun creating :-)

I used the gorgeous A Ladies Diary from Graphic 45 and Spray from linystamgang.
Had so fun making this and hope you can get some ideas to make your own book :-)

Here is the link to Fiona`s Etsy shop`where she has a lot of different fun things.

And here is the link to Clares great fussy cutting tutorial

Wish you all a good Day :-)

  7. Dear Anne, I discovered your YT tutorials from Fiona (Jennings64)and I want to tell you how inspired I am by what you do! I'm sorry I can't leave comments on your channel as I don't have one of my own. I am loving the tutorials on how to make this journal/yearbook and I just HAVE to buy these papers! Your style of presentation is wonderful and so informative. By the way, I also have a little dog exactly like yours who is by my side always in my craft room. He is called Teddy (because he looked so like a teddy bear) but I think I should have called him Velcro because he is always stuck to me! I don't mind that because I wanted some company in my craft room and he just curls up and goes to sleep. In fact my craft room is his bedroom, lol! Thanks again for being so generous in sharing your knowledge with all of us!

  8. Oh what a lovely album! goodness!
    Im very envious of your talent!
    Just gorgeous!

    PS. I am going to try and make your yearbook journal, can't wait to start it.

  12. Hello!

    I have just finished watching the videos for the Journal Year Book with A Ladies Diary. I was so fascinated by your skill and creativity that I watched all 12 videos back to back with one short break. I am so in awe of your talent and the work of art you created in the making of the journal. How I wish I could take a class with you. Your tutorial is excellent but to watch you work and learn how to create such beauty would be a dream come true. I have put your video list on my favorites and now I will start to watch them all. Halloween In Wonderland is my all time favorite of Graphic 45 papers and the next of your tutorials to watch and try to make one for my own.

    Thank you for sharing your wonderful talent.I am so happy to have found you and your blog and your fantastic tutorials! Wishing you a happy day!
