A FanTABulous Journal

I've had this blue polka dot cover ready to be made into a book for a while. The trick has been figuring out what to do with it. cover

Then, I came up with an idea: A custom-made journal with tabbed sections!

I used this retro leaf motif for the inside paste pages. I loved the way the sage-y green paper contrasted so beautifully with the bright blue cover.

I used Adobe Illustrator to make a template for the tabs and divided the book into 5 sections, alternating blue and gray tabs.

Each divider is also a pocket...perfect for storing photos, receipts, ticket stubs, napkin sketches, etc.
