How to make a journal year book tutorial with A Ladies Diary part 1


Welcome to the first part of how to build a yearbook journal tutorial.  hope you enjoy this scrapbook tutorial on how to make the page, insert, page, thread binding and cover book binding. for a journal ore photo mini album.

This journal is made with A ladies diary from Graphic 45 and In this first video i show some supplies we are going to use and also how to make the cover.

This great idea to use Tyvek envelopes for binding i got from  from Kathyorta at Paper Phenomenon

Measurements for cover 
You need 3 of 9 3/4 x 5 3/4 if you also will make the flap on the front
one 9x 1 5/8 and one 9 3/4 x 1 5/8

Measurements for flap inside
You need one 9 3/4 x 5 1/2 and one 9 3/4 x 1 1/2

I used Tyvek envelopes to bind the chipboard together and i cut them at 2 inches ,
You can use Xyron ore other glue
Paint and distress stain

Have fun creating :-)


  1. Thank you for sharing the project. I buy tyvek from Bauhaus here in Sweden by the metre and it is much cheaper than using envelopes! ps. That was a mechanical pencil you were trying to name, lol!

    1. Thank you for letting me know. Will try to get it in metre. Have fun creating :-)

  2. You work with inches
    How much is it in cm

    1. 1 inch is about 2.5 cm. You can Google search to convert inch to cm. if you like to find all the measurements. Have fun creating :-)
