Tag Album with my Digital Kit

Hello and welcome!

I have finished making a Tag Album using my own digital printables and I can't wait to share it with you!

Below there will be some pictures of the album's pages and after them I will make sure to post a video overview, too.

The album turned out great! It is super colorful, but has a vintage style and feel to it. There are various pockets, tags envelopes and tuck spots that make it even more fun to flip through.

I have used a hidden hinge binding method for connecting the pages of the album together, but you are welcome to use any binding you like. Tab binding could work great for such album (as an option).

Currently there is no tutorial on putting the album together, but I am sure that if you decide to purchase the kit, you will know how to work with it. If you don't want to create an album, you can always cut all the flaps off the tags and use them separately. The most important thing is to have fun!!

And here is a video flip through -

Once uploaded, Part 1 of the tutorial will be available here:

Have a great creative weekend!!

A "Steampunk Trains" Journal for Vectria Designs

Hello dear all!

I am very happy to be writing up this post, as it has been a bit quiet here on the blog. There is a new journal that I have finished, using a digital paper collection from "Vectoria Designs" - 
Steampunk Trains.

Links to the digital paper collection: 

My color choices for this project were determined by some of the color schemes on the digital papers.  You can watch the video overview of the journal on my You Tube:

I usually bind my signature onto a journal spine using 3 hole pamphlet stitch, but this time because the journal is tall, I had to use a 5 hole stitch. You can use a handy diagram that I created for your conveniency below:

At the bottom of this post (after all the pictures), I will include the links to two parts of the video tutorial, where I share how this journal was created, and the links to some of the gears dies from (that you might useful), which I found on AliExpress. The links are not affiliated and I am not sponsored by any of the sellers.

If you don't have any gears dies in your collection, here are a few that I found on AliExpress:

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
