Pick Up Tool:
Art Glitter Glue:
Basic Grey Magnets:

1.      Cut your brown cardstock at 10 ¼”x8”
2.      Mark the left end at 1” in and 1” down. This will give you a starting point for your chipboard.
Lay the 3 ½”x6 chipboard down, starting at the mark. Place the 1x6” chipboard down beside this one leaving          about 1/8” gap between them. Then lay the last piece down, again leaving about a 1/8” gab between them.
3.      Go ahead and place your glue on the backs of the chipboard and glue them down in these places.
4.      Take your bone folder and go around the chipboard at the edge creasing the paper so it will fold over the chipboard well. Make your bends easily as to not crack the paper.
5.      Trim the corners – Leaving about 1/8” from the corner point of the chipboard.
6.      Place adhesive on the brown paper at the edges and fold over the chipboard gluing the long edges first and then the ends. Fold in the corners so as not to leave any chipboard showing.
7.      Take your bone folder and slightly crease the spaces between each piece of the chipboard.
8.      Cut another piece of brown paper at 8”x5 ¾” – place this chipboard down on the inside covering the raw edges of the other brown paper you applied around the chipboard.
9.      Again fold and crease the spaces between the chipboard pieces. Slowly fold your book cover over.
10.   Cover mats are cut at 3 3/8x5 ¾” you will need 4 of these. 2 for inside and 2 for outside.
11.   Spine mats are cut at3/4”x5 ¾” you will need 2 of these one for inside and one for outside.
12.   Glue your mats on
13.   Pocket – cut a piece of brown paper 3 3/8”x3, measure up on one on the right side of the 3” side 1 1/8” and then cut from that mark to the upper left corner creating the pocket. Glue this down on the left side at the bottom.
14.   Mat for the pocket – cut at 3 1/4”x2 7/8” measure up 1” from bottom right side and from this mark cut to the upper right corner. Glue this mat on the pocket.
15.   From brown paper cut your closure for the cascading part. 6 ¼”x3/4” score at 5 ¾”
16.   Mark the center of the right side where the cascading album will go and glue the ½” down here.
17.   Cascading part- you will need 5 flaps of brown paper cut at 3 ¼”x3 ½”, on the 3 ½” side, score at ½” on all.
18.   Your top mats for the flaps are cut at 2 ¾”x3” you will need 10 of these.
19.   Small mats are cut at ½”x3” you will need 5 of these.

20.   Mats for the closure are cut at 5/8”x5 5/8” – Before you glue these on, place one of the magnets on the brown paper right at the end. I cut one for the top and one for the bottom.
21.   Now to start gluing your cascading part on. Start by placing glue on one of the flaps and place it right at the top of the very bottom mat. For the next one place glue the flap and butt it right up against the other fold over you just glued. Continue this process for all the mats.
22.   Now place your mats on this cascading part.
23.   Outside closure - cut 2 at 1”x2 ½”, place your magnet in the center and glue together, round the corners.  Take your bone folder and run over this flap closure breaking down the fibers so it will create a nice closure.

24.   Place your opposite sides of the magnets down and embellish all.

Pallet Christmas Ornaments - Made from Chipboard

These are quick and easy and you can use products you have around home. Below is the full video tutorial as well as the products with links. Hope you enjoy and make a few of these. Use up those cereal boxes and shoe boxes and up cycle them into beautiful ornaments.

YouTube tutorial: 

Products used:

TH Glass mat:
Tim Holtz Scissors:
Score Board:
Pick Up Tool:
Art Glitter Glue:
Basic Grey Magnets:
Tim Holtz Oxide Inks:

Start with some chipboard, cereal box or shoe box just what ever you have around home. Use the stamp and ink up the chipboard to make it look like wood, if you don't have the sign just use some ink and ink it up. Then cut the strips at 1/2" the length will need to be cut to about 4 " each. You will need 9 of these.

Start by placing two of the strips down vertically about 1" apart, and then glue your first strip across the top horizontally, at the end. Glue all of your chipboard down the back pieces leaving about 1/8" between to resemble a pallet.  Then use a glass cup or something round to trace on top, use your scissors to make the cut creating a circle of the pieces.

Then just embellish as you wish. I used some tape I had here that is like an aluminum and scored it at 1/8" all the way across to resemble the top of an ornament. If you don't have this tape use aluminum foil. Then attach your twin, string and finish embellishing. It is finished!

Wallet Cascading Mini Album

This is a project that was created in the spur of the moment. I just saw a photo on pinterest and wanted to give it a shot. There was no link or instructions so I just guessed at it and made it the size I wanted. Hope you enjoy. I am calling it the Wallet Cascading Mini Album.

YouTube video tutorial:

Products used:

Kaisercraft stamp confetti - sorry I couldn't find a link for you Florette Bloom Stamp Posies: Webcam: Mic system: Memento inks: Tim Holtz Oxide Inks: TH Glass mat: Tim Holtz Scissors: Score Board: Foam Tape: Pick Up Tool: Art Glitter Glue: TH Ruler: Basic Grey Magnets:


Start with two pieces of paper that are 5"x12" I ended up cutting one of the panels off so you could go with a 5"x12" and a 5"x9". Score at 3, 6, 9 on both. Fold accordion style. 

Cut 2 pieces that are 3"x4 1/2" score on the long side at 3/4", 7/8, 1", 1 1/8", 1 1/4", 1 3/8" - do this on both pieces. Use a pencil to make these curve when the score lines are. Just to get it flexible. Glue the 3/4" to the back side of the second panel at top and bottom, this will be your closures. I rounded the corners on this and the first piece. Place your magnets on the top and bottom of these panels you just put down in the center across. 

Now we are ready for mats:

The mats for the accordion pieces are black - 2 3/4"x4 3/4" - white 2 7/8"x4 7/8" and then the patterned at the bottom are 1 1/4x2 3/4".

Mats for the overlapping closures are 2 3/4"x3" you will need 4 of these two for outside and two for inside.  

1st flap inside and outside mats are 2 3/4"x4 3/4"

Inside journaling mats is 2"x3" and the mat underneath is 2 1/4"x3 1/4"

The tiny piece inside is cut at 1"x1 1/2", this is the one I stamped on and placed on the 4th panel inside. 

Flowers are cut at 13/4", 1 1/2" and 1 1/4"

You can choose to cover the backs of the panels if you want I think I might on the next one.
