got some card and  paper and started from there
Both holders are made the same inside.

Both Wallets.
After cutting out the size i wanted to hold the note book
i cover with crafty secrets backing papers and distress
all the edges.
Inside of the wallet.

Hi It has been a while since i last blogged
I did make a card last week and for some
reason i couldn't upload my pictures,
This evening i have a Mini Envelope Book

Craft Stamper Mag as my daughter just came
back from holiday and wanted a small album
to hold a few photo's.

covered with backing papers i added some lace and
a few paper flowers.

I used C6 envelopes sealed and covered with patterned
papers, I added flaps and sealed with Velcro fasteners
to keep everything in place.
I added large tags to add photo's on and the
smaller tags for Journaling on.

I used TH Pocket Envelope Die and added TH mini
tags inside each pocket.

The papers to cover the tags are from the Crafty Secrets
Creating with Vintage Typography CD Rom
The large tags are 6inches cut in my Cricut and the medium
and mini tags are TH Dies.
