Hi everyone, I am sad to see this set go, I have just loved using the Magical Day Bundle.  It was fun making this cute journal. I laminated the cover, the 3 books and the 3 bookmarks for extra strength which is great for carrying around in your handbag and it wont get wrecked.  There are lots of tutorials for these journals and variety of sizes to choose from they can be easily adapted to what size suits your needs, this journal measures   11 3/4 x 61/2. I made the rosette using Bermuda Bay card stock and cut a scallop circle using the 1 1/8 punch.  Inside the front cover I glued on a post it note pad and added a 1/2 inch strip of unicorn paper and 2 cute little post it note flag size, these I purchased from a variety store similar to the $2 shops. To keep the notebooks closed I used the birthday mini binder clips. 
Pockets were placed on the front of each cover, 3 in total.  The picture above is the 1st booklet which I placed a diary I bought from Lincraft (you can pretty much buy them anywhere like the $2 shops).  I did not staple any of the pages from the dairy or lined pages so they could easily be replaced. 
The booklet above is the second one, I could not find any paper pads this size so I bought one of the school exercise books from Kmart and used my guillotine, I pulled the cover off and left the staples in until I finished cutting.  I placed the closed coverless book in first and measured 6 1/4 across and cut the excess off down the side then turned around and and cut at 7 1/4 this is the width so it opens like a book.  You can make them to any size that suits you. On the top of the page I added a piece of mermaid paper to pretty it up a bit.
I made a card using the Whisper White narrow card and envelope set and placed that in the back pocket.
And lastly I made these 3 cute book marks one for each booklet, these were also laminated.
