Book of books, secret belgian binding with a twist

I finally finished my secret belgian binding book for the swap for the Hinges group. It took me quite a while to finish it. First trying and testing, then working out a concept and when I finally started making the book I ran into several problems. Making me want to cry, but I made it, it’s finished and it’s ready for shipping =).

I made some progress pics, some detailed shots of the finished book and a video, so you might want to go get a cup of coffee for this =).

A rusty japanese stab book

When I made my first japanes stab book for a swap, my husband liked it so much that he wanted me to make one for him. So I promised him to make one.

I started working on the book last week when I showed you the covers in my WOYWW post. I finished the book last monday.

As he likes steampunk stuff, I made it rusty and old looking. He’s quite pleased with his notebook.

I did take some progress shots, but not very much. So I won’t be able to show you exactly what I did to get this look, but I will try and talk through all the steps.

little blue book charms

A while back I posted a picture of some booklets I was working on. Yesterday I finally finished them. Somehow I kept bumping into a wall while making these. So I’m really glad it all came together in the end. 
Two of them are already spoken for. I don’t know what to do with the last one yet, but I’m sure it will find a good home as well.
I did make some progress shots while making them so I can show you how I made them.

Summer of Color 3, week 4 – charcoal grey and pale pink

I actually made two projects for the Summer of Color this week. I started with a journal page, that at first went horribly wrong. While I was thinking about how to proceed with the journal page I made two ATC’s. I think they turned out really cute.

I finally knew how I wanted to finish my journal page and even made a video.

Since I filmed the whole process, I don’t have progress pics, but I do have loads of detail shots. So be warned, this is a picture heavy post.

Very late 12 tags of 2013…not a tag

I know, I am really, really late making the june tag for the 12 tags of 2013. So this will be a really, really short post. I loved the tag Tim made as an inspiration and the techniques he used, butI just couldn’t get it together to go and make this tag.

This afternoon it hit me. I just wasn’t in the mood to make a tag. I wanted to make books. The feeling of booklets and the fiddling with paper just makes me happy. So I decided to make the cover of a booklet with the techniques Tim showed us.

I didn’t have all the products Tim used, so I used substitutes that I thought would work. I did make some progress shots and detail photo’s.

WOYWW 212 and winner birthday giveaway

It’s time again for yet another workdesk hop all around the world. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go and check out Julia’s blog, Stamping Ground and she’ll explain it all to you. From there you can also visit all other participating workdesks.

My workdesk this week is a rather funny one, as I’m getting to grips with making youtube video’s .

On the desk you can see the journal page I was filming. Which I finished right in time to post the video and the page here.

First things first. Last week I posted a birthday giveaway and I promised to let my daughter draw a winner from among the comments, both here and on Youtube.

Summer of Color – Week three

Yesterday I was playing with some new sprays and embossing with a new stamp. I made a page I was realy pleased with. As it turns out the colors I used were the colors from this weeks artists choise for the Summer of Color 3. So since I like the page and the colors match this weeks colors, I will be able to submit  my entry for this week really early =).

The above images are scans and It would appear that my scanner is not big enough for this booklet, because the edges are snipped off. Not much though. I forgot to make progress pics but I do have some detail photo’s to show you.
