They’re calling it a Polar Vortex!
It’s very cold here in Wisconsin. The big temp today was -23 degrees F with a wind chill factor of -52 degrees F
Excellent day for indoor crafting.
I found at clearance price the Eileen Hull’s Traveler’s Notebook Inserts cutting dies. I didn’t read all the packaging, so I thought it was the whole notebook. After some research regarding the cover die, I decided to make my own cover to fit the inserts how I wanted them to fit.
This little booklet is about 4” X 6”
I had some special scrapbook papers that I was saving for something special. I decided this booklet was it. The papers are called Happy Accident. I used that part of the sheet to reinforce the front and back edges.
I’m not really a journaler except for my little calendar journaling squares. But I really wanted to make one of these. I finally thought about how my odd ephemera and rejected die cuts needed organizing. So this is my ephemera keeper booklet.
It really was a lot of fun to make the pages and all the pockets to keep the little pieces in. No more digging carefully through a box. I couldn’t believe how this little project cleaned up my mess of bits and pieces. Amazing.
I think the little see-through corner type pockets were the most fun to make.
This booklet has three folder style page sections. To attach the pages to the cover I sewed down the middle of each of the three folders. And stitched right through the selvedge booklet tie to keep it attached.
A little papercrafting and a little sewing. My two favorite things to do.
It’s so cute. AND it’s useful.
I’m trying to think of some other small something that needs organizing. I’d love to make another.
