Here's some additional info you may find helpful!

This is a standard composition notebook. You can pick them up at drug stores, office supply stores, grocery stores...pretty much everywhere...for less than a $1.


As noted in the swap details, you and your partner can decide on a different type or size of notebook, particularly for non-US swappers who may not have access to this particular type.

There are LOADS of great journal cover tutorials on the world wide interwebs Smiley. Here's just a few to get your creative juices flowing!

Questionnaire sent! I am really looking forward to this. I've got some ideas already. In fact, I might use the time waiting for partners to play with this idea and make some of my own. Wink

BAM! Just sent in my Questionnaire! I'm really looking forward to this! Especially happy I can focus all my energy on the cover and not additional extras! Thanks for that! I knew I kept about a dozen comp books in my craft supply for a reason! :::shrugs:::: they were on sale after the school supply season was over and I couldn't pass up on .25 cent comp books.... I told my hubby I would use them at some time!

I'm really interested, but I don't use composition books. I have a lot of Moleskine notebooks though, as well as a planner that is A6 size. Would anyone else be interested in swapping a different dimension with me? Maybe if we did moleskines we could send a different extra since they are kind of pricey? I'm very interested in this swap (I looooove making book covers for manga and would love to make a more detailed, personalized one) but I want to make sure someone else is interested in doing a different size before I commit. ^^
