Layered Cross Stitch

Create not one, but two eye-catching A6 journals with a leather or vegan leather cover and a mix of plain & patterned papers, all bound together with an eyecatching decorative exposed stitch.

These 48 page books make for great sketchbooks, journals and notebooks – a fun personal project or a gift for someone special!

My bookbinding kits are created with the environment in mind and are packed full of lovely remnant and recycled materials ready to be given a new lease of life – from the Artway recycled coffee cup paper I use in all my kits (great for sketching, watercolour and general note taking), to high quality leather offcuts and handmade tools, all wrapped up in eco packaging ready for you to transform in to unique and usable books!

My comprehensive video tutorials take you through the making process step by step and cover the main structure of your book as well as how to add a name badge, pencil holder and handy page divider. You will also be given access to a bonus video and a downloadable document with links to recommended suppliers, advice on sourcing & prepping materials and info on how to make books of different sizes with the same binding (bookbinding is addictive – you’ve been warned!).

Upon purchase, you will have continued access to my videos via a password protected page on my website. Please note: one purchase per login – these details are not to be shared with any third parties.

I currently have three limited edition, colour themed kits for you to choose from with a number of kit or tutorial only options, see below:


  • Access to my tutorial only – log in details for my how-to videos, which includes a downloadable tools/materials kit list so you can source what you need for the workshop.
  • Access to my tutorial, plus materials/tool kit – a specially curated kit posted to your door which includes all the materials and bookbinding tools you need to make 2 A6 journals plus a teabag and biscuits to fuel your creativity!
  • Access to my tutorial, plus materials kit (no bookbinding tools) – if you already have the tools required (awl, bone folder, ruler, punch board, bookbinding needle, clips) but are keen to receive one of my bountiful bookbinding kits then this is the one for you!

Update – please read before making a purchase: I am currently doing a restock of my self-paced kits. This means you can still order but your kit will not be posted until the 17 June, this is partly due to a hold up with my usual paper supplier. I will be in touch to confirm your order and again when your kit is in the post. Each kit is prepared by hand and is a treat to open, so I promise it’ll be worth the wait!

For kit options and to make your purchase, first select where you would like your kit posted to:
