How did I make that book?

This is this month's kit ....

I made it 12 pages plus the covers -

I have had several Newbies ask "How Did you make that" if you are new to the Scrap world or making mini albums "FEAR NOT" it is so easy!
First I cut my paper for the covers they are 4x6 covers from zutter - so you can decide which you want to be the cover!
Remember "There are no Rules.. you decide ....
Next I cut 4 sheets in to strips - each sheet will give you 3 - 4in pieces
3x4= 12 pages
Next I cut the 12 strips into 9 in pieces
Then I score them at 6in folding the 3in score
the 3 in pieces I cut off I inked with Chestnut ink
I used them as background for mini photo mats
Inside the folded section - I used some cardstock to make my 12 thoughts for next year-
Next I punched wholes with the Bind it all -
if you don't have a BIA - you could punch two holes and add rings or ribbon.
Next embellish and have fun!

There are a few kits left for this month if you want to order! This would also make a Beautiful Valentine's book - especially with the rose paper as your cover!

I am traveling with Hubby this week- he works I adventure, we have dinner and it is really nice to be able spend time doing what ever these days! It is the best part of NOT owning the store anymore.

I have painted a $1 notebook - waiting to see what happens- did a shopping trip to Gigi's found some great journal cards! Stopped at Hl and found some zutter pages really cheap .71 wow - I am really enjoying the Bind-it-all - I bought it two years ago!
Tomorrow I have 2 stores I hope to visit -- just hope there is NOT a big bridge ...I hate to drive over bridges -- LOL not good near the Gulf!
Have a great week,
