Altered Journals

When the school supplies arrive in the stores I always stock up on the composition notebooks. I had decorated one for myself and taken it with me to the High School Youth Group at church where I'm helping with freshmen and sophomore girls. They were ALL over it! So I decided to make one for each of them.

First up is Courtney's. I colored the spine with a Copic Marker to match the paper. I die cut a PTI coaster to create a front pocket for tags. Modge Podge gave the covers a nice shine.

I also put a library pocket inside the front cover. I love the spiral notebook PTI die.

Most of the tags I created have a Bible verse. I used Verve's wonderful Plain Janes. I also used the Words of Wisdom set from Verve. I used lots of dies, twine, and my Cricut. If you have a question about a particular element just ask.

I hope you don't mind a few more journals in the days ahead cuz I've got 5 more to complete.


  1. Great journal. You are so kind to make one for each girl. I'm sure they will love them. Looking forward to seeing the rest.

  2. Very cool Rhonda, I can see why they would be clamoring each for their own.


I love your feedback!! Thanks for stopping by.
