I finally got around to filming a flip-thru of my March notebook. I thought I would post a few pictures here as well. This was my favorite book to make so far and I think that had a lot to do with the fact that I have developed a pretty good process. It was the same thing when I was doing a pocket based version of Project Life...things went so much more smoothly once I had a system in place. While these books seem rather compact, I am now realizing that devoting an entire book to a single month gives me so much more room to document and play than I ever allowed myself when I was using pockets. This has been a welcome change.
I have received some questions regarding the notebook itself so I decided to create a little tutorial that I plan to put up in the next few days. In regard to the supplies, I just use cardstock and text weight paper from Paper Source. I worked there for years and have had plenty of experience using the paper for all sorts of projects. Creating my own notebooks has made it possible for me to choose colors I like as well as control not only the quality of the paper on the the inside, but the quantity as well. Because I'm using it more as a scrapbook rather than a notebook I don't really need that many pages. I also like that my paper is more substantial than regular notebook or printer paper which makes it better for stamping and light watercoloring.
