Saw a great set of Heidi Swap HOW TO tutorials today and I just had to go and try it out. The only tool I am missing is a paper slicer with the score tool. It came out pretty good for a first try. (And considering I had a lack of good tools for this project) Its back to back binding covered with light chipboard. Each page is asymmetrical and flips up to reveal larger pages. Here is a sneak peek at the cover. Being I am often asked to show my finished pages, I have begun filling it with the theme "Hello NC, Goodby NY". I am using instagram and my cell phone pictures that I have taken since moving to NC.  I will post more in a few days when I am finished the pages.
My work table mess :)
I just wanted to show you that I have in fact begun work on the book and I hope to post the finished pages in a few days.

Happy Scrapping everyone!!!

 On a Daybook roll......


Finally got my new craft room up running and slightly organized. Thanks to a hubby who likes to build stuff :) Working on my February Daily and making a few books. 

Chevron Daybook.

Only mistake I made is the two center pages (the cloud page and the cloud writing paper are UPSIDE down lol) Sort of like my life right now, I guess. I was going to pull out the stitching and fix. ( I had originally wanted to put the book in my Etsy shop) but I have decided to actually use the book for myself. Since moving to North Carolina, my life feels a little upside down at times. That's O.K. though.......upside down or change is good.

French Writing Paper DayBook


Found Fry Paper Liners in World Market Store. Sealed up the one side to make a pocket.

Again, this was originally to be an Etsy Shop book, but I don't like the way the stitching came out. Just means more books for me to fill up and use :)
