Dear Diary…

Emma's Diary

I FINALLY use my Bind-it-All. I got it over a year ago. M’s been wanting a diary — those fancy big girl ones — but they’re just too expensive for somebody who can’t write well yet. As you can see this book’s pretty simple. I used Kristin Cronin-Barrow, All About Him, paper for the base, Cosmo Cricket alpha (the apostrophe is American Craft), the birdie is Dear Lizzie, the flower is Prima and the crochet flower is one I made. This book is 3.5″ x 5″ and the BIA wires are the 3/4″ ones. I glued two pattern paper onto the front and back of a cereal box. It gives the front and back cover some weight. For the inserts you can use notecard paper or just regular printer paper like I did for mine. M likes to draw and write and she always takes a piece of my printer paper anyways so it wasn’t a hard decision. I think it took me 15-20 minutes to make this.

We’re hungry so I’ll make this sweet and short.

Oh, M want to write a message:

My   Mom   made    this   diree   for   Me
