Hanging Calendar Mini in a Box

September is soon upon us, and we begin to really think about making Christmas gifts.

I'm sharing with you my latest project for Paper Architecture With Sabrina and it would make a very unique Christmas gift, customized by you for whatever purpose you want, to give as a gift. This 12 page hanging mini is great to use as a calendar, 12 Days of Christmas, 12 school years, a wedding album, a special event, and more.

Here are some photos of the project. With 12 pages I will not post all of the photos, but just enough to give you and idea of the project.







I have some different photos posted on "Paper Architecture With Sabrina" if you wish to see those. And here is a walk-through tour of the project.

Thank you for stopping by today and happy papercrafting!

File Folder Folio 6 - About Me/My Life

I have a new File Folder Folio to share with you today!

This folio is designed to be different for the other five I've designed. This one is for more journaling and is meant more for an individual to keep quick notes of their life, past, present, and future. You can however, add as many photos to it as you would like, they would just be smaller.

Teresa Collins designed a collection that is perfect for this project - "Hello My Name Is..."

It can be for yourself or given as a gift to someone else for that same reason.


For each month there are about 3 to 4 tags to pull, add notes to, or a photo to it with a quick note.




There are two policy pockets holding 4 x 6 cut-a-parts, or note cards. These are to record your dreams, goals or bucket list for the future in one pocket, and childhood, or past memories that may come to mind, in another.





Here you may view the project in a walk-through video of the project.


To purchase these instructions, please link to my online store at Zibbet. Thank you.

So next I want to ask you something. I've now completed the six folder folios I had initially had planned to create to fit inside the box for this series. However, I have had requests to keep designing more of them. So I'm am interested in finding out if more of you would like the same thing. Please leave a comment letting me know if you are interested in me continuing with more future folios.

Thank you for stopping by and having a look. And, happy papercrafting everyone!

Travel File Folder Folio - Come Away With Me


With Summer soon turning into Fall, and Summer vacations coming to an end, having a Folio to feature your favorite photos of your Summer fun is a great project to make. Using Graphic 45's "Come away with Me" 12 x 12 paper collection and a few file folders, I've come up with a folio to show them off to family and friends.

This project will first be taught in a class here in Victoria, BC, September 20th, and then the instructions will be available for purchase to all. In class we will be using a better colour of folder to go with this paper collection.

In the meantime I thought seeing this video would show you what the folio is like, and later I'll post a few more details. So watch the video, mark your calendars, and then come back to see some more.

This "Come Away With Me" travel folio can showcase up to 55 photos and journaling spots!

You will have to put up with music that did not cut off when programed to; something happened when uploading it. Sorry. But you can see the project, even if you can't always hear me.


Thank you for stopping by, and for watching!

Come Away With Me Cards With A Twist - Class



Welcome!

Today I'll be showing you the last card of four in the "Come Away With Me" Cards With A Twist Class being held in September. This one is almost like two cards in one, and has a hidden place for a gift card or prepay credit card. Great card for a graduate, or a loved one that has saved for that special trip! With different paper, it will work for any situation.

So let's have a look at the card in more detail.



You will note the tabs on the front of the card. These where created using my Envelope Punch board. When you untuck the center tab the bottom part falls down and you see this.


...the gift card tucked in it's pocket. When we lift up the top flap, you see this.


Lot's of writing real estate! Here on the front, AND just like on a regular card too!

Hope you enjoyed seeing these four cards, and that you are inspired to make more cards outside of the usual and traditional. Thank you for stopping by these four days! Here is a collage of all four cards.


Happy Cardmaking Everyone!
