Green Midori

So, I made my first leather Midori.  I love the thick, textured leather.  But I made it passport size, not Field Note size.  I already have one this size I love made of denim, so I am thinking of selling this one…

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?

Green Happy Birthday Card for YSUI…

It is day 3, and 3 cards for me! Whoo Hoo!  Hope I can keep this up 🙂  How are you doing using your stuff?  (After all, we know it’s Your Stuff… Use It!) lol

happy birthday layer card

My card today is another one where I just used scraps.  I grabbed 3 pieces that looked like they went together out of the scrap-box.  (I think all 3 are from the Recollections Mosaic Memories pattern paper pad). I mounted them on black card stock (also Recollections (and yes, I know a couple are crooked, I think that is what you get from making cards as 1 AM :P)).  The Happy Birthday sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp, and the green is a cheap, generic ink, I have no idea where I got it.  I wasn’t happy with the way this one stamped, so I colored over it with a complimentary Prisma Color Pencil, and I like the way it look a whole lot better now.  Also, it took the blinding factor off the bright white, always a plus!  And the bling is from a package I got at the dollar store here a while back.  There are things I would fix, but generally I like it.  My inspiration for this one can be found HERE.

So, do you have a card you would like to share? Post it in the comments down below… Did you use anything out of your stash this weekend?

Old Green Card (re-do)

Okay.  This one is… interesting.  I came across a card I make years ago.  And it was capital ‘U’ U-G-L-Y!  Ya know one, that hurt your eyes to look at, and made you cringe? Yeah.  So I ripped it apart, salvaged what I could, and put it back together.  And it is a massive improvement.  I still wouldn’t actually give it to anyone, but at least now I don’t feel like I need to burn it… 😉

Coptic Journal

I made this journal a couple weeks ago.  It was my first coptic journal.  I don’t know why, but I never make anything for hubby.  (friends, family, myself, but not him)  Mostly cause when I do offer, he says ‘No, thank you.’  But I had decided that it was his turn.  He likes turtle, so I sat him down and made him go through a book of animal patterns.  I was not overly surprise when this was the pattern he chose.  I am very impressed with my first try.  And I hope he is.  Maybe he will let me make something for him again some day…
