Do you ever feel as if the progress you’ve made isn’t visible to anyone but yourself? That’s what I felt like this weekend, when I worked on different stages of handmade books. It was a productive weekend; really, it was!

I sliced through various sizes of bookboard and chipboard for different kinds of books, rounding the corners afterward with my Zutter Round-it-All.


I printed inside pages for address books, lined journals, save the date books and password notebooks. Then I trimmed them to size, and rounded the corners with my Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper.


I assembled books, and decorated the covers with a floral embellishment.


Finally, I stacked the next group of books for today’s work session.


There’s always more work around the corner, but it feels good to push the peanut forward!

  1. You DID have a productive weekend!! Love the “insides” of your books, as well as the outsides — and the rounded corners are a really nice touch.

  2. I hear ya! There is always more behind the scenes work than anyone knows about!
    Glad you had a productive weekend 🙂

  3. very productive!
    It doesn’t seem to end, but that’s a good thing, right?

  4. You certainly were VERY productive, Judy!
    I love the papers! The cars & trucks are adorable, although it is different
    from what you normally use – is it a custom order?

  5. Love the rounded corners, and the books. Great job.

  6. Love seeing the process! Your books are always a favorite with me!
