Poking around Youtube I have discovered a couple of video tutorials I think readers might enjoy.
In this first video from LittleCanvas demonstrates how to make an art journal from paper scraps. I also like her storage system!

This is part of a series where I post either free patterns or links to resources online that are useful for stitchers. All posts in the series are in the Friday Freebie category I hope you enjoy them.
