Santa Letter Box & Christmas Stars Greeting

I know I say this every time, but I feel that way every time! And that is, "this is such a fun project to make!" Some of you may be familiar with this project if you follow my "Aspiring to Creativity" blog, or took this class last year. I've modified it and added another component to it this time. Here is the original version -





 And here is the new version for you.


This piece can serve a dual purpose as Christmas home decor Christmas greeting to all who enter, as well as a drawer that can hold either letters to Santa or a unique sized mini album (to design on your own or by requesting me to design one).

The glitter and sparkle of this project truly adds to the season as it sits on a mantle, a sofa table, coffee table, dinning table, buffet, or window sill. You of course can choose whatever Christmas paper you'd like, and may want to make multiples as Christmas gifts.



This project can of course be adapted to other occasions, such as Hanukkah, birthday, Valentines, anniversary, graduation, baby birth/shower, wedding, and so on.


I made the two end boxes look like little gifts....


Love the little snowflakes! But you can also add die cut stars or Poinsettias for Christmas, or if making for another kind of celebration, there are hearts, butterflies, and so many other shapes that could be added!

Now, if you are interested in a mini album to fit in that space, you can make a comment below and I will make one. Just so that you know however, it will not be done before Christmas.

Here is a quick little video. (not much of one)


So if you'd like the tutorial to make this for any kind of occasion, hope on over to my Zibbet store.

Christmas Planner 2 (2014)

Last year we made a chipboard cover tri-fold Christmas Planner. This year the  tri-fold Christmas Planner, a 2nd design, is quick and easy to put together, made with 100# cardstock, and is a great project to make in an assembly line production method for several gifts if you so choose! No chipboard for this one!


The completed project measures 5 1/2"w x 8 1/2"h x 1 1/16" thick, and holds a 5" X 8" paper pad, a 6 compartment file pocket, and a calendar. There is also an hidden pocket behind the paper pad. This project can be adapted to be a wedding planner, a baby arrival or shower planner, a birthday party planner, a special anniversary party planner, a family reunion planner, and so on...

In the following video you can see the project as I walk you through the completed planner.



Thank you for watching! Have fun creating your planner with the easy to follow instructions and video tutorials.

Thanksgiving/Fall - File Folder Folio 7

I love working with Fall colours! This is the 7th in the File Folder Folio series, and depending on your choice of paper for the project, it can be for any occasion! It holds 60+ photo and journaling spots! It has booklet photo mat tags, larger tags for mini layouts, and regular tags for photos and journaling.



You will also find within a unique pocketed belly band system holding the tags tucked into position under what looks like a belly band. The flip pockets are a fun element for this folio, too.

Why not see more in the walk-through video tour of this folio!

"Come Away With Me" File Folder Folio #5

It seems strange to be posting this project now, since I had completed this folio a couple of months ago. But now I've taught the class and can go ahead and post it for the File Folder Folio enthusiasts. Thank you for liking them so much.

This one is a little thicker than some of the previous ones, so I recommend that you don't use heavy cardstock when making this folio. If you are using the same paper as I did for this project, may I also recommend that you use a kraft file folder. They are amongst the recycled folders. The colours will fit much better than the stark contrast of black with these paper colours.

With this folio you will have filled your first Folio Storage Box, and you can make another one for more Folios to come.

I hope that you will have fun constructing this project. Here are a few photos, and a walk-through video tour of the project.


Using Graphic 45's "Come Away With Me" collection makes this folio a perfect one to keep a record of your Summer vacation to share with family and friends.





There is a ton of photo space as well as plenty of journaling space to share your vacation experiences in this folio. And now for the walk-through video tour. You must excuse the music that ended up over my voice at the beginning. Something went wrong when uploading I guess, because it wasn't like that when I edited the video. Again my apologies.

Most days I check for purchases several times a day, unless I am out, and once I've been notified by PayPal, I will email you your purchased instructions.

Thank you for stopping by today, and for watching the video.

Coming soon File Folder Folio #7 with a Thanksgiving or Autumn theme. (Then comes a Christmas project) 

Happy papercrafting!

Make an Album with Magazine Envelopes and Lots of Tags!

Greetings!

This album is easy and fun to construct! it has several interactive components that makes it an enjoyable album to fill with photos and share the photos.

Completed it measures 11 1/2"w x 10"h x 3"d and has several pockets, a variety of tags in a variety of sizes, and has pages large enough for mini-layouts. Most of your photos won't even have to be cropped if you don't want to.

The generous 3/8" space between the seven pages allows for the additional thickness one photos are added, and even some thicker kinds of embellishment.

For my version, I used 2 packs of Fancy Pants "Burlap & Bouquets" and 2 packs of Kaisercraft "The Looking Glass".  I still have enough left for a small project. The size and pockets make this an ideal album for a wedding, even if I didn't think to use wedding related paper.




I'm not going to post my 25 photos, but will share with you the walk-through tour video so that you can see all the details of this album. So enjoy!


TO PURCHASE click here to link to my Zibbet store to find this project.
Most days I check for purchases several times a day, unless I am out, and once I've been notified by PayPal, I will email you your purchased instructions.

Thank you for stopping by, and for watching the video. I'm looking forward to the next project! A Christmas one!

For those of you that have purchased instrutions and made the Never Ending Flip Folio, I need your help. Would you please email me at -  paperarchitecture.sabrina@gmail.com - if you had any problems with everything lining up properly in concstucting the folio.

If you have had difficulties getting things to line up properly you could help me with this by letting me know what those problems were, so I know what I need to do to be sure everyone's project ends up like it should, that would be great. I would like to be sure everything is correct ASAP.

File Folder Folio #6 - About me or My Life

Hello Everyone!

For those of you that follow on Paper Architecture's FaceBook page you will know that I'm posting
File Folder Folio #6 before posting #5. I'm teaching a class on #5 and will post it after I've taught the class.

For these instructions I used my brand new iPad Mini to record, edit and upload the video tutorial that goes with the written instructions. It was a bit of a learning curve with discoveries and a couple of disappointments. Recording and editing video is a breeze, but discovering that I could only upload 15 minutes of video at a time from my iPad was a let down. So you will find that there are several parts to the video tutorial. Now that I know this, I can record with that in mind until I find a way to make the videos longer than 15 mins.

So, here's the project!


I wanted to make something a little different this time, something that would make not only the design of the project, but it's purpose different as well. This File Folder Folio is more for journaling and record keeping. It does have many spots that can be used for photos if you wish, so it is versatile in that way. But, it is meant to be about you, yourself. Or, meant for the individual you give it to.


It's easier to keep a record about yourself, when you can just grab a tag and write a quick note and stick it back in. It's easier to attach a small photo (instagram) onto the back of a tag and write a quick note. And it's a different way to keep a record/journal of yourself and have some interactive parts to it as well.


Here you can see a few more details in the walk-through video of this project.


To purchase these instructions please go to my online store at Zibbet. Thank you.

I want to let you know that I noticed in the tutorial videos, that at times the colors would go a little bright and strange. Sorry about that. The actual video recording is normal, but something happened when uploading some of them. It isn't through the entire video segment, thank goodness.

So next I want to ask you something. I've now completed the six folder folios I had initially had planned to create to fit inside the box for this series. However, I have had requests to keep designing more of them. So I'm am interested in finding out if more of you would like the same thing. Please leave a comment letting me know if you are interested in me continuing with more future folios.

Thank you for stopping by to check out the new Folio Project.

Happy Papercrafting!
