Creepy Horse Drawn Hearse Journal

I had to share this creepy journal that I made using a half composition notebook.  I loved this victorian funeral themed paper.  It is from the Midnight Dreary line from Got Moxie.  I’ve discussed how to make these so often that I am not going to repeat myself. 🙂 You can always visit my previous post for detailed directions.  And, if you want one for yourself but don’t want to make it yourself, you can alwasy visit my Etsy shop and purchase this one. 

Dracula Forever Journal

I have decided that I will feature Halloween projects and finds from now till Halloween.  This is a journal I made using a large composition notebook and covering it with vampire cardstock from Martha Stewart.  I love Martha Stewart’s Halloween style and I look forward to buying her new stuff every fall.  I wish I could be on her show making these journals using her cardstock!  🙂  If anybody out there knows her and loves my stuff, give her a call and set me up!!  🙂 

On to how I made the journal… As I was saying, I used a large composition notebook and covered it in cardstock.  I used Zip Dry Paper Glue to adhere the cardstock.  It is fast drying and doesn’t wrinkle your paper.  I then stamped the word forever  and tied a black ribbon onto the front cover near the spine.  The inside covers are also covered in black cardstock.  And lastly, I used walnut ink to stain all three edges of both covers to give it a finished, polished look.  It is a simple project, but it does take time and steps to complete.  If you don’t have the time but would still like the journal you can purchase this one from my Etsy shop.  This last photo is the back of the journal…
