For the coming year, I'm going to list a swap each month for a 1-signature junk journal. We'll begin (of course ;+) with January! Each month, the journal you create for your partner will:

  • have some papers or embellishments reflecting the time of year

  • measure 5.5" wide by 8.5" wide (standard 8.5"x11" paper would work for this--just turn it sideways and fold)

  • have some type of cover reflecting the month

  • be bound with a pamphlet stitch (shown in THIS video).

  • have at least 8 UNFOLDED pages (more is fine)

You may use an assortment of papers for the journal you create--not all of them need to measure 5.5"x8.5"; only the cover MUST be 5.5"x8.5". There must be adequate space for journaling. If most of your pages are not suitable for journaling, simply add some extra papers/tucks/etc. inside.

If you've never created a journal before, this is the time! The 1-signatures, especially, are so much fun. Please don't be intimidated--jump right in!

Send by date each month will allow you to have the journal from day 1 of the coming month.

Any questions? Please message me; sometimes I forget to check the actual swap. No question is too simple.

Hope you'll join me for this year-long journaling adventure!

"have at least 8 UNFOLDED pages (more is fine)" can you clarify what you mean by pages? For example, if I take an 8.5x11 paper and fold it in half to add it to the signature, does that count as 1, 2, or 4 pages for that criteria?
