I describe these "StoryBook" journals as Junk, Junque, or Smash journals. I use the covers of vintage books and premium double-sided card-stock papers along with original pages from the vintage book to create pockets, envelopes and words They usually have around 45 - 60 pages which include the premium card-stock plus a combination of lined writing, sketch, drawing, linen, vintage graph, vintage typewriting papers, watercolor or whatever fun vintage papers I can find, on which you may journal, sketch, draw, paint, and glue. They are bound either with sturdy o-wire or a 3 ring binder mechanism. Some of these journals may be over-sized, some may be smaller.
