I don't think it's any secret that I love to create mini books. I love all the layering, dimension and variety from making books. One of my new products is the prebound ESSENTIALS ALBUM. I love that the new book has not only designed pages, clear page protectors, but it has a sticker and die cut sheet included with the book.

I am now going to be teaching the book in upcoming workshops. I wanted to share a peek of the projects. I decided to create the ESSENTIALS ALBUM mixed with some of my DAILY STORIES collection too. I used the TC eBosser machine and dies to create the words and emboss some of the elements. I added the new file folders from the Daily Stories collection.
As I designed the album, I knew I wanted a beautiful box to place the book inside. So the book could be placed securely inside the BLACK box. The black box lifts open with a closure. I LOVE... well, am addicted to the gold frame on the outside of the box. *these "gold" frames are from my BLINGAGE collection from a couple of years ago. (they are sold out now but I "saved" enough for the perfect project- which is this class!!!) I am actually doing the TC metal frames again- so watch for them to come BACK!!!!!
Here is a view of the inside of the book. The right side is the two clear page protectors. I am majorly addicted to my sequins. I have to say I think the colors in each of skus are YUMMY!!!!!
Well, it gets BETTER... I had enough product to do TWO books that will fit inside the box. I decided to do the DAILY NOTEBOOK from the large file folder.
The largest file folder in DAILY STORIES is SUNDAY- SATURDAY and I placed a lined notebook pad inside the folder. This is a bonus project and I am so happy how it turned out. So two books... inside the box.
The word ARCHIVED is from the die cut sheet that comes inside each of the file folder skus.
Pocket pages don't always have to be photos....
Just note- if you ever take a workshop from me... always bring your stapler and clear adhesive. I actually carry my TC pink Xyron Stapler and clear adhesive with me in my purse.
I always teach projects that the stores or events feel best fit their customers and those who would like to attend my classes. I will be teaching this workshop for the first time at Hannah's Home Accents in Antioch IL- March 7-8th.
I am also teaching this DAILY STORIES CLIPBOARD for the first time there as well.
The clipboard is quite large. We will make the tissue paper flowers in class. Thank you HAZEL & RUBY for the donation. You will LOVE this speciality paper. The flowers are simple and fun to create.
Here is a full view from the front. It's quite packed now with products... plus I added all my favorite photos.
I use my TC Xyron Chipboard punch to easily punch the top of each of my pages. It is the exact size for the top of the these chipboards. I love "no measuring!!!"
This workshop has lots of flip up, flaps, envelopes and embossed elements.
This "was" plain white BAZZILL cardstock that we will emboss with my 8.5x12" h TC Herringbone embossing folder. In class we will use my machine (TC eBosser) so you can create this beautiful depth and texture to your pages. It's really amazing how deep and get such a customized look with my folders and machines.
I will show you how to create "embossed" tabs and use your die cuts in your design elements too!
Today is MONDAY and I have a new show that debuts today on My Craft Channel. It is showing my new FLIP BOOKS.
They have been so popular that we had to reorder them already to meet the demand. Hope you have a FABULOUS Monday!!!!
