Several years ago I remember making decorated notebooks for several people for Christmas. It was a lot of work to take off the spiral binding, then make sure the decorated paper was well 'stuck' to the notebook covers, plus all the decorating. A big job, and honestly, I didn't enjoy the process...not one bit! My joy has always come from the decorating/coloring/stamping/embellishing, never all the hard work to get the surface ready for all that LOL.
I have found the most wonderful alternative, which I am sure is not new to many of you, but it is new to me so I'm sharing. They are called Moleskin journals and they are gorgeous, sturdy, and so ready for the fun part I can't even tell you, so let me show you:
I love to ink the edges with Distress Inks before stamping. Here are my samples in both sizes for you:
