It’s hard to believe, but I actually made a … paper book.
Well, more like a scrapbook, with tons of pockets and envelopes, and all from scratch.
It all started because I was on Youtube looking for something else, of course. Then I spotted this journal from Anne Mika in Norway, based on my favorite scrapbook paper from Graphic 45, A Ladies’ Diary.
I really didn’t think I could make that book. Or even finish it.
But there you go, I proved myself wrong, and I really enjoyed making this book. It has many more pages and secret compartments, envelopes, etc, but it would be too cumbersome in one blog post.
This beautiful lady in the mirror actually folds out to the right, and reveals more pockets.
It uses up a full 8x8 pad, plus the 12x12 pad, plus the two collage sheets. Noticed? no lace, no fabric.
A lot of ‘fussy cutting’, which was really rewarding. ‘cept for the trail of little bits of paper all through the house. Well worth it though.
