Prima's Time Traveler's Memories Altered File Folder Journal / Mini Album Combination



I hang my head in shame and confess that I have neglected my blog and haven't posted in awhile. However, I have been creating! I have a few things I would like to share so hopefully I can get some posts done and catch everyone up with what I have been creating. 

For this post I have an altered file folder journal / mini album combination featuring Prima Marketing's Time Traveler's Memories paper collection. The pages are made using manila file folders and chipboard is used for the front and back cover. Here are some pictures:
Some details about the file folder journal:
*Height: 6 3/4", Width: 5", Depth: 2 3/4"
*7 signatures that are hand sewn to the spine using the 5 hole pamphlet stitch.
*Lined journaling pages throughout the book. Total of 60 (120 front and back)
*Fabric ribbon tie
*Metal corner protectors for the cover
*3 top loading pockets that include a photo mat in each
*Flip tags inside the album with pockets on the inside front and back covers.
*Edges distressed with walnut distress ink
* Handmade tassel
* Faux leather covers the spine preventing cracking and tearing from opening and closing the album over time.


A couple of inside views:



This is a 2pc set with the second book being a waterfall mini album.

Some details about the waterfall album:

Prima's Time Traveler's Memories / Book of Secrets / Book With Drawers


Sneaking in one more creation for this year! We are about to change the calendar to 2016. Where did this year go? This little book is 4x4 and perfect for keeping secrets. I used Prima's Time Traveler's Memories paper collection and metal embellishments to create my little book. It has a buckle and strap closure:

A waterfall feature for pictures or additional journaling:

3 signatures of tea dyed paper and torn edge:

4 drawers each with a trinket and room for adding more:

I can't take credit for this design. It was inspired by a tutorial that I found on Blick Art. I did make some changes, tweaked here and there and added my own touch to their instructions. You can find their tutorial HERE.

Check out my video if you would like to see more views:
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing my little book of secrets.

Happy New Year!
