New @ Studio 2: Handmade Vintage Journals, Notebooks, and Sketchbooks

The Studio has been busy, busy, busy! We’ve had our noses in vintage hardcovers, hiding within the depth’s of Colorado Spring’s local bookstores, because we’ve been stuck on our latest project: handmade journals.

Sometimes it’s really difficult to dismantle a well-preserved, beautifully illustrated book, but the end-results are stunning! Not to mention, our inner bibliophile loves a wonderful way to give a hidden bookish gem a second life.

Take a peek at our latest finished journals and sketchbooks:

We do our best in ensuring that the handmade process is paid a wonderful tribute, as well as being executed in the best way possible. Our favorite aspects of this project: creating handmade library tag, binding some of the original book pages within the journal, as well as treasure hunting at Who Gives A Scrap in Old Colorado City for the perfect handmade paper. 🙂

Take a peek at our Etsy shop to snag one of these beauties before they disappear within the craziness of holiday retail season! (I know… it’s just as early for me as it is for you.)
