  1. Thanks for posting this information, Yvonne! I had not seen the one about not needing a bind it all! That's good to know!

  2. Thanks for putting this in one place! I hadn't seen the button ones and now ideas are brewing...

  3. I'm just getting started making journals and these videos have helped me so much. Thanks

  4. Oh my goodness....I've just noticed that you've listed my Pamphlet stitch tutorial as one of your recommended tutorials. Thanks so much. Glad to see its useful. Lee aka Crafty Loops xx
