He is Lord

I found myself making journals again this week! I hadn't planned to, I really prefer cards! I decided to let the SALT challenge for this week, "He is Lord," be my theme.

I still am in the learning process. I made a really huge error with this one. I accidently punched the holes with the cover upside down, so they didn't line up when I went to assemble the journal! Far too much time and effort to redo the cover. So, here is my compromise. Hopefully none of you will ever make this mistake, but if you ever do, just take two wide strips of cardstock that coordinate (my choice of yellow was not wise: you want it to be a subtle coordination, not something that draws the eye, as this yellow does), and punch them through making sure to count holes carefully, and leave yourself an extra half inch or more on the "top" strip to overlap to the other side. Trim the strip so that it does not overlap too much of your cover design. (Don't cut the strip first: it may crinkle in the bind-it-all.) Then trim second strip to slightly less than the full measurement of the cover, and attach to the back.

The Names of Jesus stamps are from Biblical Impressions, Eureka, and Stubby Stampers. Isaiah text is from Biblical Impressions, the other is computer generated. The lettering for "He is Lord" is from a set called "Hebrew Latino," I do not know the origin.

What a beautiful journal. This will be a work to treasure. And I am glad I am not the only one on a steep learning curve with the Bind it all...

VERY nice work! And I actually like your yellow edge - I think it gives the whole thing a finished look.
