Easy Handmade Note Book & Personalized Magnetic Page Marker


Hi Everyone,

Thank you for visiting my Blog today.
You may remember that a short time ago i made a sweet pocket album and also a small notebook to go inside. I have had lots of people asking if i could show you how i made the note book so i have :-) I also decided to make a matching magnetic page marker to.

These would make great little Teacher gifts as i am sure they would put them to go use!


I use magnetic storage sheets to store my dies & i always seem to have loads of little pieces left over. This is a perfect way to use them up! Both of these projects are so easy to make. I do recommend using a crop-o-dile for these projects. I could not be without mine now.

I also used eyelets for both projects and they measure 5mm across the top of the eyelet. I also used the 3/16" hole on the crop-o-dile.

DIMENSIONS FOR NOTEBOOK

2 X DESIGNER PAPER MEASURING 4" X 2 3/4"

SCORE BOTH PIECES ON THE LONG SIDE @ 3/4"

APPROX 20-25 SHEETS OF 80GSM COPIER PAPER MEASURING 4" X 2 3/4"

SCORE ALL PIECES ON THE LONG SIDE @ 3/4" i ALSO RAN MY TIM HOLTZ PERFORATION TOOL OVER THE SCORE LINE SO THE PAGES CAN BE TORN OUT.

DIMENSIONS FOR MAGNETIC PAGE MARKER

CARDSTOCK MEASURING 7" X 1 1/2"

SCORE THE LONG SIDE @ 3",  3 1/2" & 4"

DESIGNER PAPER X2 MEASURING 2 7/8" X 1 3/8"

2X MAGNETIC MEASURING 1 3/8" X 2 5/8"

As always please check out my Youtube tutorial for full instructions. I will put the kink at the end of this post.

The paper i used for these projects is Festive farmhouse and i also used the large letter framelits.

Bye for now......

Love Ann xx

  6. Hi Ann,

    I love all of your tutorials and so appreciate you sharing such creativity with your followers. I just wish I lived in the UK so I could subscribe to your monthly (I think) craft box.

    Question. Would you be willing to share details on your crop-a-dile?

    Take care!

Exploding Box Mini Album!!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! I am so happy it will be Bank Holiday Weekend soon! We are supposed to be getting some gorgeous Weather to! Lets hope so. I hope you have a great Weekend whatever you do :-)

I am really excited about today's project, i think its so cool! Basically, from the outside it just looks like an ordinary box, however when you open it up, its anything but ordinary! Its a mini album! How cool???

I did see a project like this on another site but i can not seem to find it now. I saw the idea but used my own measurements etc. I really love this project and i loved making it to. Please do not think for one minute that this project is hard! Believe me when i say its very simple, it really is. Its not the quickest thing to make but its worth it!



My box was made with Berry burst 12 x 12" card, Whisper white card and the share what you love DSP. I also used Dragonfly dreams thinlits and celebrate you thinlits which will be carrying over to the new annual catalogue!

Gorgeous Flip Flap/Shutter card Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog and thank you for stopping by!!
I am really pleased with Today's project and i think you will be to! I am calling this a Flip Flap/Shutter card. It reminds me of those shutter blinds that people have in there window. Its a really cool design.

I came across this type of card on another YouTube channel called JK arts. I did make some changes to the measurements and also simplified the instructions a little as i found them a little tricky to follow. Please don't be put off thinking it looks really hard and complicated...its really not!!


I think this card would be great for Valentines Day but you could also change the Hearts for Cakes or Balloons and turn it into a Birthday card. It would also be great as a Mothers Day card.



Another thing i like about this card is that it folds totally flat. It also stands up perfectly to. A really great card for lots of different occasions.

Beautiful Triple Enforced Keep Sake Box

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to my Blog. Today i have a really sturdy & super strong box for you. I am really quite pleased with this box & i know you will love it to!!
It is not hard to make and i think it looks very professional to. As the title says it is triple enforced!! Once you make it you will see for yourself how strong it is.


As you can see in the picture above i used the Delicate lace edgelit dies to make the closure of the box look more interesting and quite ornate. I added a cute padlock charm to finish it off.


As you can see the inside is also very neat and professional looking. I even added a cute faux mirror to the inside of the lid.
