Sorry Quiltbea...the lining is the 11" x 15.5" piece of co-ordinating fabric or muslin. Finsh the short edges with a zig-zag stitch.
I just laid the notebook down on top of the cover to check the size after turning the flaps out to the front (shown in step 2). If the flaps are even with the edge of the notebook, you're good- otherwise adjust the flaps so they are even with the edges of the notebook.
Then, remove the notebook & set it aside. Keeping the flaps turned (as in the step 2 picture), lay the lining piece face down (right sides together) on the cover fabric. Pin through all layers on the 2 long edges (top & bottom edges)
My hubby bought a package of that white almond bark stuff at Wallies and he mixed in dried cranberries and pretzel bits and something else... maybe it was chopped almonds - YUM! It was a pretty 'bark candy' when made up. When we travel home for the holidays we're going to make it again with our family!
Thanks Angela.... you did good! Jill, I like your cover... pretty! I emailed a photo to WQFC... she will post it soon for me. (thanks!) If anyone needs more toffee just let me know! I've been making to give as Christmas gifts... the garage refrigerator is filled with 35 half-pound boxes!!! (Don't you wish you were here with me!!)
Where did I get lost? I think I started out lost trying to do this when I felt so tired. Plus my fabric was the size you gave us but my exercise book was bigger than yours. I think I will look for one of those at Walmart tomorrow & redo, salvaging what I have done so far.
Great job teaching/ hostessing this PJ party Angela. Looking forward to seeing the pictures of all the journal covers that everyone gets made thanks to your great instructions.

I'll have to finish mine tomorrow. Once I got off track I fouled up a bit and have to redo part of the cover. Like I said, my mistake, not yours. I didn't get much sleep last nite and had to rise early today to get my snow tires put on before our snow this weekend so my eyes aren't cooperating either. I'll finish this when my brain and eyes are working in sync. You did good!
Thanks Jill! The colors a little off... the light is more of a gold. This was fun and I will make more. I know some friends who would like one. Thank you Angela for all the work involved showing us how to do this!

Somehow I missed this last night, but I'm definitely going to make one. The directions look very easy. Everyone's covers are really nice and I really like the tablerunner near WQFCs journal! It's gorgeous! Did anyone else notice it?

Angela, I'm truly sorry that I hurt your feelings. Something unexpected came up last night (and it wasn't fun) I think I'll be able to make this from what I read. Your pictures are really great. I'm planning on making this for my grandaughter, she loves to Journal. Thanks for doing this class. Again sorry I couldn't make it. Looks like it was fun and I missed the famous toffee.
I am so sorry I miss out but after reading the instructions, I think I can do one. The ones that were shown are all real nice. I am real sorry I missed the toffee. I will never forget the night I came back to my room in Branson and started going thru my stuff and found the little box of toffee. I was a so good and I was so tired. I sat back and relaxed while it melted in my mouth. Thanks for the memory.
Angela, We got home way to late for the P.J. Party but I love your instructions. I'm going to make 3 of these for children of a couple of co-workers of mine for Christmas. I'll try to get them made this week-end & will post pics when they are done. Thanks for the great class!

If you've got a scrap of leftover fabric, you can make a matching pen. RSVP pens can be easily taken apart, roll fabric tightly around the ink part and put into the pen. I made a dozen journals with matching pens last week. http://www.splitcoaststampers....ls/altered_rsvp_pen/
It's nice seeing more going to give this a try! Angela's directions are do good... you'll love how they go together. Good idea with the pen! Happy Erme, glad you enjoyed that toffee in Branson! Jill, that table runner is just gorgeous! Loved that you gave us a good view of it. jessica, it's already wrapped for my friend! Hope we see more photos when you're done making one!
