Yep, spent the day home with an ill child, so managed to get some crafting done.
Here is the result:
I made the journal from scratch using a double thickness of cardboard.
the cover is 8x8, with a 3 inche spine.
I covered the first layer of Cardboard with paper as above.
I then made 1/2 inches pleats on an 8 x7 3/4 piece of black cardstock and
placed this on the inside spine section.
Then I covered 2 x 7 3/4 inche squares with co-ordinating paper and used them as the inside front and back covers.
Once this was completed I could start on the album pages.
The inside pages are 7 3/4 x7 3/4. Each are a double thickness of card. This is so there are no paper edges rather each card is covered and then 2 pieces attached
Then I basically did a 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 layout and place it in the album:
