It seems we are always looking for some nicer, prettier, cheaper or just different papers to go into our Filofax. I tend to look at ready made journals and see if I can pull them apart to make them fit into my own Filofax. I've tried the spiral bound ones and if you slice off the hole side and re punch new holes, they don't look so bad, but if you have to add the new holes on top of the holes that are already there...well the results are not so good.
Yesterday, while out shopping in John Lewis, I came across these two beautiful Journals by Jill Bliss.
The paper is a lovely quality and is really beautiful, but this is the one I want to show you first.
So there's about 105 pages (210 sides) and at £7.50, I thought it was good value. Time to take it apart. Every 8 pages I found the cotton binding, I just snipped at this and pulled the sheets out.
Then I sliced the pages down the middle with a paper cutter and punched the holes in.
Then I popped them into my A5 Filofax.
I've even found this paper can be turned upside down so four designs now becomes eight.
This design is called Succulents eco-journal and is printed on re-cycled paper.
I haven't had a chance to do the Typewriter Journal yet, but it too has lovely sheets in it.....more on that one next time.
