Buy one composition book. You will then “Wreck” this book however you want!!!

You will decorate/embellish 10 pages inside the book. Space the pages out – so don’t wreck the first 10 pages only. Maybe every 10th page. Make it random.

You can fill the pages with washi tape, stickers, paint, etc. You can do all 10 pages with washi tape or all 10 pages with stickers or all 10 pages painted. It’s sender’s choice.

*Washi Tape (maybe washi and entire page if you want). Add a little washi to every page.



*glue/tape die cuts

*add tabs to the pages.

*add a pocket on the page.

*stamp images throughout the book.

*add ribbon / lace


*add whatever you want. Have a cool idea others might like, share it below in the comments section.

We are going to “WRECK” this composition book – in a nice way.

DO NOT rate down if you don’t like the book you are sent. If the sender wrecked 10 pages inside the journal then rate a 5.

*YES, you can wreck more than 10 pages. The more the better!

*Composition books can have any face, any color. Lined or unlined. You can decorate the front and/or back but not necessary.

ONLY serious swappers allowed for this one. Absolutely no flakers. 499 rating and above only. No newbies allowed.

Just an FYI - composition books are 50 cents this week at Staples (and I'm sure other office stores.) You can also find them at Target for 52 cents all year round. I thought I heard on a TV ad that they were one cent somewhere but I haven't heard it since.

I love this swap idea, and I hope you will host another soon.

Wingy 08/18/2016 #

Is this a round robin type swap

scrappermama 08/19/2016 #

Is this a book that will be sent a second or 3rd time?

AZmom875 08/21/2016 #

The last swap was a keeper journal swap, not a round robin or traveling journal.

TwoTurtles 08/24/2016 #

Thanks for answering that AZmom875 :) Host don't get notifications when questions are posted on their swaps so PM's are always a good idea

HELLLO Ladies!! Have you received your journals from the last round? (If you joined)...

Tell us about it..

I just got mine and it is AWEESOOOMENESS!!

So I must join this round.. he he.. i'm so excited.

MrsAndrews 08/25/2016 #

I got my journal from the last round, and it is so gorgeous I don't want to use it!

judgedbyabookscover 08/25/2016 #

@MrsAndrews .. I know what you mean.. Ive decided to collect 5-10 if the swap continues, then im going to cut off the binding, and use my spiral binder to combine them all into a large book.. I cant wait to see how it turns out!

motherpie 08/26/2016 #

im going to use a DEcompoistion book, is that ok? same idea, just a personal favorite.

cynaemon 08/26/2016 #

I love using my journals. I think of the people I made them every time I get them out. It makes them so special.

scrappermama 08/27/2016 #

Hoping my partner like grunge!!

lawchick 08/28/2016 #

I'm new to this art journaling and am not clear on the answer to whether the books we make will be sent out again once received? If we are making only 10 pages it sorta seems that way.. help? :)

TwoTurtles 08/28/2016 #

I'm so happy to hear everyone is please with what that have received!!!

TwoTurtles 08/28/2016 #

@lawchick you send the book and that is it. You can wreck as many pages as you like. 10 is the minimum. I think most people in the swap would appreciate a greater number than 10 pages wrecked. Remember to space out the 'wrecked' pages.

MrsAndrews 08/30/2016 #

Just a note to people on the fence--my shipping last month was $4.12 for 1 book in an envelope.

aligurl75 08/31/2016 #

This swap can be mailed MEDIA MAIL and it is way cheap that way. It only cost me about $2.50 to mail my book out last month. I don't remember if people remember the great rates of media mail :) You just need to ship it a little earlier since it is a slightly slower mailing time.

Jjean 08/31/2016 #

I got my Journal & it is my first of this type....I love it....enough pages were left for me to add my thoughts.....Thanks to my partner for a great job.....

user2637 08/31/2016 #

FYI @aligurl75 - the deadline is the deadline to send not receive. Shipping early isn't required regardless of shipping method. :)

@Jjean - I assume you mean you got yours from the previous swap...? ;):)

Could the ladies that loved their wrecked composition post a pic . I'd love to see it !!

WallflowerJenn 09/ 2/2016 #


AZmom875 09/ 2/2016 #

For those who asked, I felt that my partner did a different and better job than I sent out. I wrecked mine more, in the sense that it was not as orderly as she was. I will try to post some photos to my flicker page which is on my profile of her wrecked journal. I will also post some of one I kept cause I loved it. You will see how hers is more orderly mine was more wrecked, and I think both ways are acceptable.

Fenix825 09/ 8/2016 #

I am working so hard on mine, and I am loving every minute of it. My daughter is even getting in on the action! This is so fun! Can't wait to send it once it's done!

LunaMoody 09/20/2016 #

Can we use spiral note books? I was going through my craft room and found a bunch of brand new ones.

pkpeace 09/28/2016 #

I received my book today from @LunaMoody and love it! I hope to do this again!
