I enjoy new things.

My daughter left some empty crayon boxes on the island in my kitchen. I absconded with them.

I kept seeing really cute tag boxes for photos.

I think I’ve managed to make what i envisioned.

I made hubby take me shopping for some extra ribbon to finish the tails.

You pull the tags out then when you are done you pull the tails and reset the tags into the box.

 

 

Wedding Scrapbook

IMG_20141206_131722IMG_20141206_131735

I took the book wood for one of my planners and turned it sideways. I was in a desperate hurry because I’d had a surprise visit from my Awesome Grandson. I also used the little part that usually sits in the front of the book for the spine. I had not realized they were the same sign.

I tried to match the wedding invitation. I just realized I forgot to cut the snowflakes I meant to. I used the only cold weather paper I had. I think I used 6 12×12 sheets.

Each page is a regular sheet of cardstock trimmed long ways.

I drew this from the ribbon on the invitation and cut it out with the ScanNCut. I thought it would be on the cover but the names were too big for it to fit and I did not have time to cut them out again. Smile 

I won’t count on having no surprises again, lol but I had a great time putting this together while hubby worked in the yard.

Trying Cards again

I want to make cards to get rid of my book scraps.

Noir Nora

This book was inspired by Nora who reminded me Can’t isn’t a word in my vocabulary.

Drilled out a hole with my Silent Setter tool. Used Jewelry glue with a brad then duct tape.

Very happy with how this one turned out. It’s a bit bigger than normal but the perk is an entire calendar.

Paris finished

Paris Medium book

 

IMG_20141008_105734IMG_20141008_105725

Spent all my Ren Faire money buying paper. Picked these out just for the Paris book.

IMG_20141008_104311IMG_20141008_104326

Pulled out the parts for the book the glued it up. I use the wood so the book never shuts all the way.

IMG_20141008_104331IMG_20141008_113544

I put together the start of a big book too. I need to make at least three large ones.

This is what happens when I work. I always make a huge mess.

I’m very pleased with how this turned out! It’s got a lot of freebie extra tags.

More of my Book babies: Difference between a Large and Medium book

 

 

A large book has 6 pages. 3 of the pages are envelopes and the other 3 are fold out. Each page gets decorated then the front and back cover. It takes days to figure out what paper and what kind of embellishments. I use so much adhesive, glue and tapes. It always shocks me how much tape I’m using. Scor-tape, a big ATG, even Scotch double sided, oh and duct tape too maybe even some paper tape for decoration. IMG_20141004_055047 IMG_20141004_055100 IMG_20141004_055122 IMG_20141004_055135 IMG_20141004_055146 IMG_20141004_055152 IMG_20141004_055159 IMG_20141004_055205 IMG_20141004_055209 IMG_20141004_055213 IMG_20141004_055217 IMG_20141004_055221 IMG_20141004_055237 IMG_20141004_055242 IMG_20141004_055249 IMG_20141004_055304 IMG_20141004_055313 IMG_20141004_055323

 

Now here is a medium

A medium has 3 pages, one is an envelope, the other 2 pages are fold outs.

I really enjoyed these two 1950’s police box planners.

These are a labor of love. The mediums seem like a vacation after a couple of large ones. I made a medium in 24 hours once but that was all I did while I was awake that day.  I ate standing there deciding on papers, I even got up in the middle of the night to stare at it. 🙂

I’ve always wanted to make books and thought when I started writing it would take care of the craving, but thank heavens I took that scrapbooking class!

Bird Planner

 

I know I planned on doing the forest next but this one just took off. I added a bit more fancy to this one .

IMG_20140915_113656IMG_20140915_113713IMG_20140915_113719IMG_20140915_113726IMG_20140915_113731IMG_20140915_113736IMG_20140915_113742IMG_20140915_113751

Wanted to make this page picture friendly so who ever gets it can make these above pages a bit scrapbooking.

IMG_20140915_113800IMG_20140915_113806

I can not believe it started to rain right over my stump! LOL I ran inside and finished up.

IMG_20140915_113906IMG_20140915_113912

Added an envelope picture pocket to this book.

Working on books but not writing them?

I’ve got three covers made and glued. Two of the books I forgot to put Tyvek in and had to back track but I’m a firm believer in “Not a Problem,” attitude on my crafting.

IMG_20140827_173037

Two little front books and one 1950’s British Police box book.

IMG_20140827_192107

Here’s the Forest Book. I did a FB Pole and it won. I did do a mini planner before it but the muse took control.

IMG_20140827_215535

I just love this book if I were going to keep one it would be this but not happening. 🙂
