Small Vintage Style Junk Journal with a Leather Like Spine

Hi Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I wanted to share my latest journal with you that I completed tonight.  I will be doing a video on this one a little later today and will post that as well.  I will also be listing this journal in my Etsy Shop, so if you like what you see so far, keep an eye out for that!

This is a hardcover vintage style junk journal, with a "leather like" spine, which is a textured vinyl. The spine piece wraps around the front and back and has the same decorative edge on both sides. There is a braided cream colored trim that adorns the spine.  There is a heart punched on the front cover with parchment paper and book paper within for a sweet detail.

The closure is a vintage button and elastic. 

It has 3 sewn in signatures.  All of the pages have been hand dyed for that vintage look and feel.  Several pages have divider tabs that are merely included for decorative purposes.  You could add a journal tag to those pages using the letter as the first word in your sentence.  For instance, "T" could stand for "treasure" or "togetherness."   There are 138 total pages, counting front and back.

The divider cards have been stained and dry embossed as well.  These are cute little pockets on several of the pages.  

There are heart punch-outs on several pages as well as, stained parchment paper. 

There are several pockets and tuck spots throughout the journal, 36 total.

On the front and back inside covers, there are pockets with a sewn detail around the edge.

This is the back cover.  This journal will come with several page tabs in various shapes and sizes.  I hope you've enjoyed this journey through my newest book.  Please stop by later to see the video and Etsy listing!  Thanks again for visiting me today!
