Midnight Tales File Folder Album Tutorial!

This post is for all you Halloween fans out there like me. Graphic 45 has steered clear of Halloween collections the past few years, but the requests have been so strong they finally designed one this year! It's called "Midnight Tales" and like all Graphic 45 collections, this one is FANtastic! 

I've created a file folder album. Believe it or not, it's the FIRST file folder album I've designed. I hesitate to call it a "mini" album since it's a pretty good size. It has a bit of a different twist than most of the file folder minis you may have seen. 

It is filled with pockets, magnetic flaps, cool tuck spots, and secret hiding places! As I designed it, I documented all the steps, measurements, and took photos so I could write YOU a tutorial.

You can purchase my 14 page tutorial in my Etsy shop NOW. It's only $18 for the PDF download and it's easy-to-follow and super fun to make. The best part is, you can use the tutorial over and over again with other Graphic 45 collections. (That's what I'm gonna do!)

There are so many spaces for photos of your favorite Halloween pics and loads of journaling spots to record your memories.

I made a quick walk-through video today so you can check it out even further. Enjoy!

Mason Jar Garden Journal with Video

Have you seen the new Mason Jar/Snow Globe special from Elizabeth Craft Designs yet? Well, I've had all kinds of fun this past week creating a junk journal with this new set! Today, I'm featured over on the ECD blog with this journal along with a process video from start to finish, which I've also embedded below.

I incorporated many different textures into this journal, which is something I absolutely LOVE about junk journals. There's paper, fabric (pictured above), canvas, watercolor, vellum, and kraft. 

I hope you take a moment to visit the ECD blog today to see more photos and close-ups, and also watch the video so you can see all the steps and enjoy the process with me.

As I say in the video, I am listing this completed and signed album in my Etsy Shop tomorrow morning, so don't miss out on that. These one-of-a-kind, signed pieces usually sell out pretty quickly.

Here's the video and the supply list below. Thanks for watching!

Springtime Planner Pages with Video!

Hello again and welcome back! How about some more planner pages? This time, I'm sharing two spreads in my nature planner with a "Craft With Me" style video. In the video I share how I make my paper and color choices, how I decide on the composition of elements, and my thoughts on designing the pages. Here are some peeks, but be sure to hop over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog for even more close-ups and details there as well as the video. The supply list is below and also on their blog. Thanks for checking in today. Have a fantastic holiday weekend for those of you in the States.
