Making the Journal…BIGGER

I just came across Pam Carriker’s great journal tutorial today, and thought it needed sharing! I love a bigger journal with room to work in, and making my own is usually the best way I have found to get the size and paper type I want.

Making the Journal…BIGGER.


About kittyisnotamused

I am an eclectic crafter whose hobbies currently include knitting, crochet, making journals, cooking, and quilting, although I have also been addicted to jewelry making, scrapbooking, sewing, and many others. My passion for creating runs a wide gamut and jumps back and forth from new hobbies to old often. I live with my hubby and our 3 pets: 1 grown puppy with the attention span of a goldfish, and 2 lazy chubby kitties. Kitties who, despite my best efforts to gain their enthusiasm, show no interest in what I'm working on except to lay on whatever it is occasionally. The hubby's reactions are better, which is why he gets many handmade items and the kitties only a few, but his reactions are usually confused smiles and nods with "thats great sweety!" The dog shows the most enthusiasm but mostly that translates into her trying to snot and eat whatever I am showing to her... I suppose thats just life tho :) Thanks for stopping in, feel free to leave a comment!

    Love it. I downloaded on of the Interweave workshops with Pam ( for a preview) and found it really interesting. well worth a look. But I wonder. At some point in the dim and distant past “they” tried to market a 12 x 17 (!) scrapbook and it was an epic fail. Too big a space to fill, hard to do quickly in a time-available sort of way. I have been thinking a SMALLER sort of journal might be better for me. A bigger one is far too scary 🙂 But I do love handmade book/journal info even when I am not actually working on one. Loving your work with faces….


    • I think journal size preference is definitely subject to each individual. I started art journaling in a 5 x 8 1/2, and that as the perfect size for me then. Now tho, I find myself wanting more room, and a bigger journal is looking better and better to me for all the space to work! And the best part about making your own, is that you can make it any size YOU want, and whatever paper you prefer. 🙂 That looks like a fun class! I have one of Pam’s books and I really like her style.
