Here's some pictures of my latest journals! 

I designed the pages using a bunch of different computer programs (Paint, Word, Photoshop and my trusting old scanner).

I laminated the covers myself, but the binding was done at the copy shop.  I would love to get a machine of my own, but they're a little out of my price range for the moment.  If anyone has advice on where to find a reasonably price machine I'd love to know!

So, the backdrop on the covers is vintage wallpaper with illustrations are from vintage ads.  The fonts were added using Photoshop.   ***To the best of my knowledge the images used on the covers are either allowed to be used and/or are in public domain.  Please let me know if you have proof to the contrary:)***

Too cute!!!!! I love journals, I've kept one constantly since about 6th grade, and everyone is always laughing at me for pulling one out no matter where I am.  These look so professional!

Haha!  I know what you mean.  I start with the best intentions, but then I forget to add things or forget to check for important stuff.

Thanks so much!  I think I'll be giving some of these away as Christmas gifts this year.

Have you seen zutter bind it all machines? I have one, they work really well, they even cut through chipboard, records, CD's etc...

It depends how much you want to spend, mine cost me about 50, but like everything they are so much cheaper in America Sad (about 30/$60)

So you get an idea of how the result looks, my sister made this with my one http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=207219.0
