I came across this channel while searching for info for journaling, wanting to make my own books for journaling and I found it very helpful.

I follow SeaLemon. Love her bookbinding tutorials, have saved them all.

I don't usually go on you tube much as it is famous for having 'false videos' and such that carry viruses etc.  But I did however watch two of those videos- the Coptic book and stitching. She explained them very well.. how to make the books and also her stitching method.  Her camera very steady too.  I was impressed with her video quality.. most are not that good in making videos... shaky, voice not clear, hands in the way, or something.  But she did really good.    I have made books and I liked that stitch.  it was different.  very similar to my books I do... so I will try this stitch.  and I like that I can vary the colors.  :)  but she used just plain paper... I never do.  Everyone is different in what they use... how they do theirs...  I use artist quality paper in mine, either heavy weight drawing paper or sometimes acrylic paper and I have added envelopes made of watercolor paper.   But that is just my style.  :) ( I always had to be different... my uncle is that way ( guess that is why he is an artist in California!  LOL  I call him the REAL artist, as its his profession and he gets paid a ton of money and is well known... and me, I am a STARVING artist... not known, not paid!  HAHA)
