Learn how to make a DIY leather journal with a tooled style! I love Cricut crafting with unexpected materials, like genuine leather! Yes, you can cut, mark, and use other methods to create a great gift such as a DIY leather journal. After some experimenting and help from the talented Kay Hall at cleversomeday.com, I’m excited to share a new cut file collection of journal designs that you can finish with traditional leather working techniques. They’re a great combination of old and new crafting!
