Ustream Monday February 2

Hi everyone,  I hope you can join me Monday, February 2, 2015 at 8:30 p.m. EST  live on Ustream for some Mixed Media Inky Finger Fun!   I will be sharing a preview of some of the new products released at CHA by Limor Webber Designs and IndigoBlu along with some of my tried and true favorites from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.

We will create this mixed media tag from start to finish.

The theme of this tag is based on the Fruit of The Spirit  Galatians 5:22-23  
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."

As always we will do our best to record for those unable to join us live.

CHA Travel Journal


Hi everyone, I'm excited about my upcoming trip to CHA.  I absolutely love going and meeting new friends, hanging out with old friends and seeing all the yummy new products about to release.   I have created this awesome journal to capture my travel plans, photos from the show, make and takes, notes and contacts.

Books like this help me to keep everything together.  I started out using an Mini Avery Notebook  that is about 5.5 x 8.5 inches.  I found mine at WalMart in the office supply section. This is the perfect size, because it fits in my purse and isn't too bulky.   I love the three ring system, so that I can easily shift things around in my book.  

To alter the notebook I used Teresa Collins Designs Nine & Co. collection

Here are some photos of the album: 

On the cover I also included Flower Bouquet Silhouette Cameo Cut, and on the inside I used the  3 bracket File Folders for dividers on the inside of the book. 

I used created my own pocket pages by cutting down page protectors and sewing them with Gold thread.  

I also used glassine bags for pockets in the book. 

I created additional storage by using 5.75 x 8.75  inch envelopes and trimmed the top off to create a pocket page.  

I used the file folders from the collection as pages in the book, by cutting them in half. 

Gold glitter washi tape was added through out the book for added detail. 

I sewed all of the sticker labels down with gold thread.
 I also added a fun pocket for tags and added some sequins in the middle.  

 Binder clips and paper clips are always handy in book like this.
Here I have used one to keep my tag from flopping around.

I plan to use these tags for photos and journal spots. I may make more of the sheet protectors when I return and tuck them into the finished book. 

I kept all of my loose leaf paper in the back of the binder, so that It is easy to write my notes.  The back pocket is a great additional storage area as well. 

Here is a video walk through of the album. 

If you  are planning to attend CHA look for me!  I would love to meet you. 

Thanks for stopping in today,
