This is what we will be creating. For the example of the Create Your Own Planner Journal Project shown in the video above, I have the paper with horizontal lines.

For the video, I have them with vertical lines as shown here. Apply adhesive to the chip board or the paper outer edges. Be sure the edges are covered to avoid lifting of the corners.

Apply the paper lining up the edges so the chip board is covered.

Your Create Your Own Planner Journal Project – Part 1 is complete! Rather than create the same exact project again for the tutorial versus the example, I thought it would be cool to see the difference in how it looks if you could see both completed which is why I did it two different ways. Here they are side by side.

Please be sure to stay tuned for the continuation of this project. Thank you for joining us and we hope you enjoyed going on A Creative Journey with Melissa.
