I do love how Kraft card can instantly age a project, the perfect combination with your frayed fabric and Wrap journal topper. So many possibilities with this wonderful creation Nancy. I love it. Thank you for sharing and Happy Blogaversary.

Nancy, what a clever idea to use Kraft-tex, it looks like leather! I love how you decorated the cover and thanks so much for the tips on using magnets too! Hugs, Anne xx

Thanks for the info on how you made it.

That Kraft-Tex looks like amazing stuff must try some out. I love the stamped strip addition and the quirky cover art. The whole worn leather look is so effective its a great journal. Thank you for passing on all the instructions and happy blogaversary! x


Love your leather look cover and how the beautiful soft greens of your chosen papers look against the earthy brown. Lovely design and immaculate execution, as always.

Thank you for the great step by step. Love the leather look you have shared. Such a fun bloghop with such great variety of mini albums. I've enjoyed the inspiration so much.

Never heard of that paper that looks like leather - will have to check that out and the die cut as well [makes life easy] your work is stunning! TFS

A fantastic album Nancy, and such a super and clear tutorial!! I adore how you have decorated the front, and oh that moon embellishment, I love it!!

As I have resigned from the team, maybe you should remove my name from the bloghop list, as I am not actually part of the hop, though people are of course welcome to visit me :o)
xxx Happy September!

Love the inking on your faux leather journal cover - it looks so soft and supple - just like leather! Wonderful decorating inside and out with your images and pretty papers!

This is very unique and yes, it does look like leather! I've actually thought of using leather for my journal covers! Thank you for the step by steps on the magnets... they always intimidate me!

I loved seeing how you made this journal, Nancy. A beautiful cover. I especially love the kraft that you used for the base.

Nancy, congratulations on the mini album makers blogaversary, so many awesome tutorials and projects! I love the look of this kraft-tex, it is something new to me that I will definitely be checking out. Very nice step by step for this wonderful wrap journal. Thanks!


So fun. I love Kraftex!! One of my favorite things to use for flexible covers, or straps on covers. 👍🏻

Katie Baird

What a fabulous wrapped journal. This die is on my wishlist, and you have shown me another reason why it’s a “must have”. Also, while I had heard of Kraft Tex, I didn’t know exactly what it was. Thanks for introducing me to this product and for providing wonderful inspiration for the wrapped journal die. Hugs from Kentucky!

Wow this is gorgeousness! I so love you final cover and your seam binding is awesome!
Your attention to detail shows and make your journal that much more pleasing Nancy!
