Paperblanks® 10-Year Journals

At the intersection of keepsake and chronicle you’ll find our new 10-Year Journals. A real passion project for us, our first collection of Paperblanks® 10-Year Journals takes four of our timeless cover designs and turns them into a true family heirloom.

If you’ve ever dug through a box of childhood memorabilia, you know how emotionally powerful keepsakes can be. Our new Paperblanks® 10-Year Journals are an elegant way to compile a decade’s worth of priceless memories, and are sure to be treasured for generations.

As a parent, you can use these journals to record personal accounts of your child’s daily life, creating a fascinating link between the past and the person he or she becomes. When your child asks, “What was I like when I was a baby?”, the completed journal will have the answer. Within these timeless books you can hold the cherished memories and precious moments in your child’s journey into adulthood. Our 10-Year Journals offer an elegant solution to keeping track of highlights and landmarks, big transitions and cherished dreams, as well as art and photos. A classic family tree, dedication sticker, memento booklet and measurement chart all give a comforting sense of how deep our roots run.

Whether you are seventeen or seventy, your life is a treasure and so are your memories, which is why our 10-Year Journals are customisable for any decade of one’s life. We offer a downloadable milestone booklet on our website that can be printed off and inserted into the decorative folio that comes with every journal.

All Four 10-Year Journal Designs


Our very first booklet has been created with new parents in mind, with guided journalling questions and places to track teachers and best friends and even trace your child’s hand over his or her first decade of life. Our next guided memento booklet will be geared toward everyday life for the rest of us, and we look forward to your feedback about what sorts of memories you are beginning to compile in your 10-Year Journal! Whichever decade you choose to chronicle, your personal history will come alive on the pages of your 10-Year Journal.

Of course, all your other favourite Paperblanks® features are included in these journals, including memento pouch, smyth sewn lie-flat bindings, acid-free sustainable forest writing paper, ribbon markers and elastic closures. In addition, every 10-Year Journal comes with a subtly decorated folio for loose papers and milestone booklets, multilingual guided interiors, family tree and name plate, and a black slip case to both display and protect your memory book.

Milestone Booklets

While the interior of your 10-Year Journal gives you the chance for daily note-taking and reflection, the printable milestone booklets let you come back every year to see how you and your family have changed. We’ll be sure to introduce each new booklet as we offer it! Check out our 10-Year Journals product page to see our full Childhood Memories booklet!

Filling Out Your Journal

To begin, turn to today’s date and write in the year for the first entry. Here you can record accounts of the day; we’ve also added a family tree and 16 blank pages for longer entries. Fill in the first entry on every page until the end of the year and then begin again at the second entry for today’s date. Follow this pattern until the journal is full of memories.

      All of our 10-Year Journals are multilingual, with the names of the months written in English, German, French, Italian and Spanish. Unfortunately we do not currently offer a Dutch translation for these products.

  5. i really like it , i would like to customize it ,can i change the inside . like only be lines , like a big diary journal book. i need 300 book.

    • Hi Mohamed,

      Thanks for your note. The interiors of the 10-Year Journals are designed to have 10 entries/page, so you can write once a day for the full decade. If you are a looking for a journal with a large enough page count to write in for a long time, but with a simple lined interior, we do offer a number of our journals with a page count of 240. If you like the covers of our 10-Year Journals, they are all available in a 240-page version.


      Gold Inlay

      Silver Filigree Collection

      We also have a new collection of Signature Edition journals, all of which are offered with this expanded page count.

      We hope you find your perfect journal!

  6. Once again I’m in raptures over your incredible books. I would very much like to have the Moroccan Mares in an English 12 or 18 month diary/in horizontal. Do you have any likelihood of this becoming part of your range, say for 2018. Please say ‘Yes’ as I’m getting older and may not last to enjoy it!!
    Many thanks and I hope you all have a wonderful 2017.

    • Hi Christine,

      Thank you for the kind compliment! We’re glad to hear that you continue to like our designs 🙂

      At this time, we don’t have any plans to bring Moroccan Mares back as a Dayplanner cover, but we will pass your idea along to our Product Development team. Once the 2018 Dayplanners are announced, we will be sure to include a link on this blog!

      If you haven’t chosen your 2017 dayplanner yet, we do offer a few of the other Laurel Burch covers with the horizontal interior: 2017 Dayplanners

      All the best,
      The Paperblanks Team
