    I’m so happy you have taken the time to make this video. It was great, and I hope it taking so long won’t stop you doing more. I love to learn by watching, and you were so clear with your instructions, you make it seem very easy. I can’t wait to be able to make some of these notebooks, but it will be a while. I have a broken arm, now out of its cast, but sadly, in need of a lot of physio and time before I get back full use of it. The thought of being able to make these and your other gelli print notebooks is a great spur to push for recovery fast.
    And your gelli prints are gorgeous.
    Thanks for all your effort

    As a bookmaker I look forward to your tutorials. They are easy to follow and visually well done. Thanks.

    What a lovely book, and a great way to utilize Gelli prints. I am aware how steep the learning curve is to produce videos, and applaud your successful effort!

    Hello–I have a question about the measuring part of your hole punching template. Is it a repeating pattern, using those three increments, or are the measurements you show and talk about just at the top of the spine, and then the spacing should be just 1/2″ between holes?

    I hope that makes sense

      Hi, yes that makes sense and it’s a great question! The 1/8″ and1/4″ holes are at the top only and then the rest of the holes are 1/2″ apart for the rest of the spine. Hope that helps!

    Hi Ali! I am actually going to finally try to make some books. It’s been on my want to do list for years. Always inspired by you. This was a well done video.
