Well I have finally made my very first journal and really enjoyed getting messy again.

So here is my step by step guide,on how I made it,showing you my binding method.
I will be doing lots more,of different books,and how to,put them together so watch this space,

  So there you have it guys one tutorial hope the pictures are okay so sorry  there are so lots of them.

This is the finished journal.
As you can see I added bits of paper,etc,all different,many sizes too.

This is the back of the journal,as you can see I added,bits of,the phone,book,to plus I took some string and placed beads on it. then added it with ribbon.

 This is the front I took an old watch,face and a bottle top and placed the watch inside,the bottle top. added few bits of paper to the book too.   

So that is it one journal hope you liked the tutorial.  love Cheryl xxx

Just remember,if you want to add more pages,just add more folds the binding,always indicates,the size of your book so just alter the size of the binding if you wish to make a smaller or larger book.

The tutorial,if you want it still for the tiny mini books is 

So have fun and email me if you need any help or message me on FB hugs to you all love  Cheryl xxx

Hi guys,remember the tutorial I showed you about making,those tiny books from 6 inch paper.

Well after posting them all off to everyone,I was talking to Judy,and her husband suggested making some Christmas ones,so I thought about making some to hang on the Christmas tree.

Also I would love to know if any of you have any ideas what we could do with these books.

Thought it may be a good idea to,get some ideas going on our blogs any suggestions welcome.

Also,I was thinking of doing some,tutorials on how I make different books,for example,this one,below is made from one sheet of 12 inch paper.

This is made from just one sheet of 12 by 12 inch paper with lots of pockets to add things too.

So now onto,the tiny mini books,which I have made into Christmas ones to hang on the tree.

So what do you think?

I also thought of making them into like tiny advent calender's.

So if you have any more idea,please let me know,and we can get creating.
Plus if you would like some tutorials on,different ways to make books,I will get some,tutorials,done.

Love hugs Cherylxxxx

Morning guys well I have spent,the week playing with my grand daughter took her to the beach and yesterday we took her to the fun fair and she loved it bless her. She is only 13 months old and is so good love her to pieces.

Anyway I took some envelopes and began to play saw a few things on the internet but I am useless at following instructions,daft as a brush well thick actually. So I took them and just played and came up with this.
These are the envelopes I started with,
 Then I just played with them,by folding sticking,to create pockets,and then to bind them all to make a book.

Sorry there are lots,of pictures,but wanted to try and show you all the pockets and pages. I have used various papers trying to get rid of all my odd bits of paper,including graphic 45.

Love hugs Cherylxxxxx

Morning guys well its been really beautiful here the last few days,but today its pouring with rain,so back to normal.

Over last few days I have made a card and made this book it has several pockets on each page to hold things. The cover I used Tim holtz sticker book,taking the cover of that as I hate to waste things.

But firstly I will show you my card using a hunky dory image.
I have used spellbinders dies,and edging dies,plus a crafters companion embossing folder. Then I have added some little gems from my stash.

Now for my book I have used the binding system to hold the pages in place.this is how the pockets look inside there are 6 pages in total and you can add tags etc to both sides of the pages.
