Hi! Today I have lots of fun projects to share. I created two DIY journals using dies by Art by Marlene. Depending on the paper you choose they can be used as notebooks or journal books. I am sharing a couple of ideas on how you can use the dies to create a vintage looking notebook and a bright and colorful art journal. So there is something for every style!

Here are some close-up photos on everything I created in the step by step video tutorial above. Link all the way to the bottom of this post for links to supplies
the vintage note book
In this version of my book I kept the small flap inside. I also used a metallic label as an embellishment and string to keep the book closed.
the bright and colorful art journal
In this version of my book I keep the small flap on top. I used an elastic and a lovely enamel flower to embellish the cover and keep my book closed.
