Twigster's Pocket Book...

I'm back! :) It feels so good to feel better and have energy again and be able to do normal things! Yeah! Like post to my blog! :) Anyway: I've had this book done for awhile. Sorry I haven't had the chance to post it. These are great mini pocket books where the book is made from ONE SHEET of Designer Series Paper!!!! The pockets and pictures mats are made from other sheets of paper and card stock, but the book itself is ONE SHEET! I'm sorry I don't know who the original creator of this is. I've seen different tutorials around, but THIS ONE is the one that I used. Now...I don't have a Bind it all, so I just made a spine for mine. You could use ribbon or other things, I'm sure. :) Plus...I wanted mine to be a mini scrapbook, so I added photo mats and then then tags I can journal on. So I didn't use all the pockets as actual pockets. Here is the book opened up:
There is no stamping in this except for the front. All the other decor is Rub-Ons! I have to admit that this isn't my fave decorated book. But I was still sick when I was trying to do this so I got to the "I don't care" point. :) Rub-Ons were SO GREAT when I just didn't want to get a bunch of stuff out and it made it so easy to be done quick.

So there is the book! :) They really are easy to do. If you try one, I want to see! Let me know if you have any questions!!!
