Stationer's Desk Altered File Folder Mini Album Journal

 I have another altered file folder mini album journal to share with you all. I used Prima's Stationer's Desk paper collection for all the designer paper used in the album. The basic structure and pages are made from manilla file folders. I left an open spine design with black satin ribbon on the spine and also as a tie closure. There are 3 top loading pockets, one side loading pocket, a couple of attached tags and some pouches that hold some removable journaling tags.

There are several signatures sewn throughout the album for a total of 26 pages that are lined on both sides.

All the pages can be viewed in the video I made featuring this album by clicking on the below picture:

I will also be listing this in my etsy store. I have a link to my etsy store at the top of my blog if you would like to check it out.

Thank you for stopping by!

"Owliver" Owl Shaped Card / SU's Top Note Die / Punch Art

Just a quick post to share a cute owl card with you. The card is made using StampinUp's Top Note Die and some other punched shapes. Super easy to make and a cute card for all ages. I had made this for a challenge a couple of weeks ago and just realized that I hadn't shared it here with you all.

If you would like to make your own owl card...check out this tutorial HERE by Wendy Cranford. I had seen this on Pinterest, pinned it and finally got around to making it. Her tutorial is super easy to follow.

Thanks for stopping by!

Teeny Tiny Itsy Bitsy File Folder Mini Album and Bottle Cap Paperclips "Raining Cats and Dogs"

Continuing on with challenging myself  with the task of using up an 8x8 paper pad, brings me to today's post. First I better back up a bit. I purchased Graphic 45's 8x8 Raining Cats and Dogs paper pad. Using file folders, I made a mini album for a friend (two posts before this one). I had some nice size scraps left so I continued on and made an itty bitty mini album also using file folders (the post before this one). There were still some nice size scraps left so the I made these....8 bottle cap paperclips:

I put magnets on the back of them so they can also serve as magnets.
Alas...there were still more scraps. So I continued on and made an teeny tiny itty bitty mini album that I also used file folders to make the pages. Now this little album is only 2 1/4" x 2 1/4".
It has an exposed spine with ribbon design that also serves as the tie closure for the album.
It has 6 pages and 4 top loading pockets. Each pocket has a pull out tag in it.
Here is one of the inside pages:
You can see the entire album...each page and tag by viewing my video:
Four projects in...I still have some good size scraps left!
What can I make next with these scraps?

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my latest creation!
