Handmade journals, by YOU that is, are a great way to put all your thoughts and dreams into one place. Journals are very personal. It’s the perfect item to customize just the way you want it as it holds your inner most thoughts and feelings. We all have our favorite colors and textures, so why not personalize your journal to match how you feel. And the place to start is with a DIY Dream Journal craft kit. It has all the pieces but your creative style is what brings it all together and makes it the perfect journal for you.
Journals are one of the most versatile creative outlets you can have. Sketch an idea. Write your inner most thoughts. Keep track of your bucket list & cross off each one as you do them. Put your dreams on paper and make them happen. We love journals so much, that’s why we created DIY journal craft kits so you can handcraft your own journal and customize with your creative touch. They also make great gifts, especially for a fellow crafter. And if you happen to the be crafty one, make it for them and give them a special gift with a touch of you in the design.
IT’S A DIY CRAFT KIT
This is a CRAFT KIT not a finished piece, for you to put together and customize however you want. I enjoyed designing this DIY dream journal and giving you all the pieces. But now it’s your turn to handcraft a project that will mean so much more than any store-bought item. Put on your crafty hat and get painting, glueing, and creating for a craft project that will leave a lasting impression and actually mean something. When you pour your own creativity and time into something, it just means more!
We all have that little creative spark inside of us, but that doesn’t mean you want to come up with a project idea from scratch for every occasion. Not to mention the tools and machines needed to bring your design to life! This is your opportunity to take a handcrafted project kit and craft your way to a custom, one-of-a-kind DIY dream journal to fill with your own thoughts & dreams or give (either the kit itself or you make it for them) to someone who will appreciate a little positive inspiration in their day.

DIY CRAFT PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS & TIPS
All pieces are laser cut and ready for paint/stain and assembly. Use a strong bonding agent to glue the layers together. I’ve used Gorilla spray glue, construction adhesive, super glue, and wood glue to complete my craft kits.
All handmade journal craft kits may be shipped in their cutout sheets with removable adhesive tape to hold them in place. This is designed to create the sturdiest, safest method for shipping, so your DIY dream journal arrives ready for you to create with. Remove any tape and separate out all the pieces. Now you’re ready to go!
All materials are natural and unpainted/unstained. I recommend painting all the pieces first and then assembling your project. That way you don’t have to worry about smearing any colors or smudging your design. And for even more protection when you are finished, a clear spray coat can seal your whole art piece for years of enjoyment!
ORDER FULFILLMENT & SHIPPING
All orders are custom made to order. I make it when you order it, so it’s first come, first serve crafting. Since all orders are handcrafted by me, Jaime, processing times can be anywhere from 1 – 2 weeks depending on the number of orders in line before yours. Shipping waste matters to me, A LOT! All shipping materials are 100% recycled and either recyclable or biodegradable themselves. I want you to enjoy your inspirational craft supplies and not fill up your landfill in the process. Mother Nature is one of my biggest inspirations, so anything I can do to make her smile, the better!
