A quick and easy monthly ephemera book is the perfect way to store your ephemera on the go, while simultaneously engaging in some “mini” journaling. We recently showed a calendar journal project, but this one is more for quick notes and memories. My favorite part is using the star stamp on "goal" days. Make a New Year’s goal to set aside 20 minutes on certain days - just for organizing. To mark those special goal days, use the Cavallini number stamp set with orange ink. To begin, I punched holes in the calendar pockets and zutter chipboard using the 7gypsies binding machine. I embellished the cover with decorative tapes and then stamped the words “month by month” onto the tape with black ink using the ABSeas stamps. Use small binding rings to bind the book together. Fill the calendar pockets throughout the month with personal ephemera.
