Stuffed File Folder

Hello there!  I've created a stuffed file folder for a swap that I'm in over on the FB group Flipbook Swapping and More.  Our theme was Summertime.  I've used a file folder, cut down to 8" in width.  I then covered it in patterned papers and then decided to stitch the sides for added strength.  I love how it came out!  I stuffed it full of stamps, stickers, bling, die cuts and even a tiny mini heart album that she can decorate herself :-)  I hope she loves it!!

Front with envelope pocket.

Back with bottom pocket.

Tall Patriotic Journal

Hello and Happy 4th of July!!  I've made a Vintage, Tall Patriotic Journal.  I've used lots of Tim Holtz goodies on this.  It was so much fun to put together!
Front cover.

First 2 pages.

Next 2 pages.

Journal open all the way.  

Back of the pages.  The pages are made out of manilla file folders.  I stenciled on the back sides.  You can still add some journaling.  For the binding I used some cream color fabric and my Singer sewing machine.  I was doing Zig zag stitch and then on the last panel (far right) I got a surprise.  My daughter changed the stitch on the machine and I didn't notice it until it was too late.  I just ran with it.  It ended up on the front of the book and I really liked it...LOL!

file folder
ivory fabric
Singer sewing machine
Authentique - Honor collection kit - patterned papers
3 Girl jam - blue crinkle ribbon
