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.
