It’s a new year!

So, one of my New Years resolutions is to get back on the blogging train.  My aim is 3 times a week.  So for the first one of the year I dug up and oldie but a goodie (that for some reason slipped through the cracks…).  This is a folio I made last summer.  (from Shannon Greens design)

folioIf you want to make one for your own, here is the video I followed… HERE …

Please if you do, send me a picture! I would love to see it… 🙂

Finished Recycled Book

This is my third book I started during Your Stuff… Use it! month.  For this art journal I used some craft paint on news print, and then used that to cover some packaging (I believe it was a pizza box top).  For a while I have been collecting advertisements that come in the mailbox.  They are mostly for carpet cleaning, real estate, dance classes in the area, dry-cleaning, etc.  I kept them because they come in various sizes (from post card to about a 6×12 inch) and they are a nice weight (card-stock-ish).  The draw back, is they are glossy, so might be a pain to work on when the time comes.  I bound these with my current favorite technique.  (Muse said use red and yellow sock yarn with blue and teal covers. Who am I to argue?)  That was about it for this one.  Not too complicated… Kept the cover really plain, for now, but strung some beads off the end.  If you look closely you can see shells, teal and coral glass beads, and some of my paper beads.  They make me happy to touch, and to hear clink together.  =D

Green Book Done!

Feels good to have complete a project.  My first one for this week of Your Stuff… Use It!  (my stuff?).  Anyhow. This is one of my favorite styles of books to bind.  It’s fast, easy, and I always have the stuff.  And it’s a great on to throw in my purse, to use as a sketchbook, note taker, list maker, ect.  I did go a bit fancy with this one, and added a layer of pattern paper on the front.

(The colors are NOT this bright in real life, but are they ever? heh)

To make this one, I used a file folder (old or new works fine, but if it’s a gift, I would go with new) pattern paper from Recollections, 20 pieces of printer paper, duck brand duct tape, a couple of green home-made polymer beads (optional and not shown) and some left over green sock yarn).  That is it.  3 holes.  Sew it up. Easy right?

Are you binding anything this week?  Tell me about it! 🙂

Any ideas on what I should/could alter next week?

Small hard cover note book

This is one I made a couple weeks ago.  It’s mostly re-purposed materials.  It measures about the same size as  an ATC (2 1/2×3 1/2) (I put a stamp in and a pen for comparison).  I would make more of these, I like it and the way it turned out…

How big to you print you photos?

I have been looking at mini-albums lately, and some of them are super small.  Was thinking of making one for my parents for their anniversary this year, but not sure of the size.  I was thinking it was help to get some other opinions… so…

ETA- will be sticky post, and left up for the weekend… thx for your help, as always =D
