A new book style

I was looking at suggested video’s and I found this

Mother’s Day Paper Bag Pocket Wallet Mini Album with Steff M

 

I stayed up way to late last night and then as soon as I had a moment today I started crafting.

This is what the island look like when I finished the first one that took at least 3 hours.

 

Second book only took 1 hour.

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.

IMG_20141206_131757IMG_20141206_131801IMG_20141206_131805IMG_20141206_131812IMG_20141206_131818IMG_20141206_131824IMG_20141206_131831IMG_20141206_131834IMG_20141206_131840IMG_20141206_131849

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

Noir Nora

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

IMG_20141027_134144

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.

IMG_20141008_142509IMG_20141008_142513IMG_20141008_142522IMG_20141008_191719

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.

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. 🙂

New again?

I didn’t go back to bed after sending Hubby to work but did this instead. IMG_20140822_064438 IMG_20140822_064456 IMG_20140822_064547

Got to admit I’m surprised. I thought I’d do a big book next. Now my paper poll is all thrown off.

It’s made out of the extra little bits we cut the other day. It’s the size of the fold over piece on the big planner. Taking it to the store today to see if I can find a paper pad that will fit it.

Ok it’s about 5pm and this is what I’ve done.

IMG_20140822_171208

I’ve not used up every bit of space.

IMG_20140822_171018

Need to decide on a closer.

IMG_20140822_171026

Left page is an envelope at the top too.

IMG_20140822_171034

Again envelope at top.

IMG_20140822_171047

Dollar two year calender.

IMG_20140822_171056

Lace looking area is a pocket and right area has a slide in pocket.

IMG_20140822_171104

Little slide in pockets and a scrap paper pad.

IMG_20140822_171140

 

I have one more coat of Modge Podge and then I need to trinket it up and add stickers.

By the Sea (Planner)

I just had to share my latest Planner. I didn’t care for the paper, then I slapped some on the cover and WOW! It just came to life.

IMG_20140821_171832IMG_20140821_171837

Decided on a belly band with a new charm.

IMG_20140821_171846IMG_20140821_173922

I think I like it better up and down.

IMG_20140821_173648IMG_20140821_173654

I like the smaller calendar from Michaels and I slipped in some Post it Notes.

IMG_20140821_173701IMG_20140821_173711

Went and bought a beach themed sticker set and some inspirational quotes.

IMG_20140821_173721IMG_20140821_173727

I used a sheet of transparency paper to give me more wave. The pack just had 2 of each sheet and it needed 3 or 4.

IMG_20140821_173734IMG_20140821_173751IMG_20140821_173802IMG_20140821_173806

3 charms a message in a bottle, a treasure chest and a small Thank you on the Elastic holding the paper pad in.

IMG_20140821_173815IMG_20140821_173821

Chopped up the cover to get a few more clouds.

IMG_20140821_173827IMG_20140821_173830

Added a pen holder, hoping it will hold up.

IMG_20140821_173838

Lots and lots of Treasures to find. I’ll add paper clips and such with the new owner.
