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… 🙂

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?
