I recently took an online class with Mary Ann Moss where we made a journal. I really enjoyed this class and heartily recommend it - it also teaches a fab way to use up all that paper you've bought or saved and can't get rid of. The cover technique seemed perfect for this project so off I went. I don't feel I can go into too much detail regarding the process because it was someone else's class but the basics are to create a lightweight cardboard template sized to go around the pages, including a spine deep enough for them and then to create a fabric slip cover. All this is machine sewn. The pages are then attached using a standard pamplet stitch - I did each of mine individually so have 6 signatures.

These pages are really lovely as you can see - they are even better in 'real life' - loads of different techniques, depth and layers. Thank you all.
