A while back, @theresa162 asked me to make a handful of journals...one for herself and four for various friends and family members. She wanted suede covers like my Bon Voyage style, but with the ribbon tie closures like the Red Velvet book. Here are the results:

Each one featured ribbon ties and label holders featuring the recipient's name.

For Brandon's book, I used a masculine, ruddy suede with tan, orange, black, and blue paste papers. The ribbon ties were black.

For Craig's book, I used black suede with blue, green, black, and white concentric circle paste papers. I did brown ties to contrast with the black suede.

For Heidi's, I used black suede with red, black, and tan paste papers and brown ribbon ties.

For Lenore's, I used a natural beige suede with multi-colored stripes paper and turquoise ribbon ties.

And for Theresa herself, I used natural, beige suede and a polka dot paper for the inside paste pages. The paper I used was from a collection I designed while I was working as a graphic artist for Hobby Lobby. I wanted Theresa's journal to have that extra-special touch.

Thanks, Theresa! You are such a fantastic customer! Looking forward to the next time I get to make books for you! :)
