Mini Notebook Wallets

Good Evening ,
What a miserable few days we have had
I thought it was never going to stop raining.
 Yesterday my daughter came round after work
 to collect her envelope book i had just finished
making this little notebook holder and soon as she
saw it she asked me to make one for her and six
more for her friends, well i made her one.
I just hope she was joking when she asked for six more,
I never done any measurements for these as i just
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.

I had quite a bit of card left and ended up
making 3 credit card size pockets.that fold
and covered the front and back.

 The note books are a packet of 4 from pound land.
I covered the front of the notebook to match the holder.
Added brads for the closure of the wallets
and a few beads i had in my stash
Have a  great evening
And Thanks for visiting
and leaving your lovely comments
they are all greatly appericated.

Mini Envelope Book

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
This is the first time i have made one of these
I got the inspiration from the June issue of
Craft Stamper Mag as my daughter just came
back from holiday and wanted a small album
to hold a few photo's.
Front Of Book
The covers are chipboard from packaging
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.

                                                     Another TH Pocket Envelope

Added some lace along the bottom of a few of the pages.

 Added a few tassel's and some Kraft card for journaling
Left a few of the pages with just backing paper
on to add extra photo's

Back of the book I used my Clinch to bind it all together.

Thanks so much for visiting and looking
around and leaving all your lovely comments
they are all greatly appreciated.
enjoy the rest of this bank holiday weekend.

Card, No Sentiment Yet

Good Evening,
Its has been raining on and off over
the last few where i am but it is still
 quite warm.
Just a quick card for me this evening
I coloured the image late last night and i am
not even sure this is the right colour for the flower
as i am hopeless at naming flowers, I have not
added a sentiment to this card yet.

I used free backing papers on this card
I used pro markers to colour the image and
the frame's was cut from my electronic cutting
machine, I added some trims and a few gems
I decorated the inside to match the front.

Thanks for visiting

Have a great evening
