New Tutorial Available AND….did someone say SALE?

It’s Cyber Week at Etsy and MiniBooksRMe has joined in the fun with my biggest sale yet!

From now through midnight, Monday, November 26th, ALL tutorials in my shop are 15% off! No coupons or codes required. The items are already marked down for ya!

And yes, the sale does include the following brand new File Folder Mini tutorial. Read on for all the details!

I’m happy to announce that the tutorial for File Folder Mini #7 is now available! (And yes, it’s on sale, too!)

This is File Folder Mini uses Authentique’s beautiful, fall inspired, “Pleasant” collection. If you’re new to MiniBooksRMe, this project is part of the ongoing File Folder Mini Series. There are tutorials & walk-through videos available for all of the previous FFM’s, too. Yay! Here are links to my Etsy shop and YouTube channel. 

These File Folder Minis are made from standard manila file folders, then decorated with your favorite paper collections. Each FFM is 6” x 8” with a 1.5” spine and each one comes with a completely unique interior design.

This month the mini features a single page inside, but what a page design this is! The front has multiple fold outs, the page itself is a big pocket-page, and the back is a duplicate of the front, with the same multiple fold outs, spacious pockets, and more. The inside front and back cover add additional photo “real estate” as well. It’s a fun way to learn that you don’t necessarily need a lot of individual pages to create a packed-full minibook!

We’ll also use décor items and cut apart cards to create additional pocket space on the page elements, too!

Big, full-size pull-outs are included in these oversized pockets. It’s like getting multiple folios inside your file folder mini! I love the lush, colorful designs on these cut apart cards!

So many flaps and pockets, all with plenty of room for additional tags if you want to add even more photos or journaling cards.

The page itself is a big, side-loading pocket with room for a pull out folder!

The back of the page features the same over-sized pocket flap, more pull-out folios, and spacious pockets.

All of the pull-outs are mini folios!

So much space to include tons of photos and journaling. The color-blocked pages are easily customizable to fit your photos. Organize, replace, or trim down any element to fit the size photos you want to include.

Check out the full, finished project walk-through!

Thanks so much for watching. You can find the tutorial for this project HERE.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and happy crafting!

New Digital Tutorial!

Hello Happy Crafters!

I’m excited to share with you my own take on the “Midori-style” Traveler’s Notebook. You all know I can’t just do something plain and basic. I want more function, more practicality, and definitely more fun. So, I’m officially announcing my Chunky Traveler’s Notebook!

In this digital tutorial you’ll learn how to make the notebook cover using Kraft-Tex and cardstock, which allows you to have a decorated cover (rather than simply plain leather or vinyl.) This style cover also allows you to add more to the inside cover as well!

The front and back covers have magnet closure fold-outs, with multiple pockets for storing notes, receipts, mail, plenty of room to store lots of goodies.

You’ll learn how to weave elastic cord into the spine to hold four booklets. In this project, you’ll create two plain-paper booklets by hand, and learn how to take pre- made, lined paper booklets into something a little more special and functional.

The great thing about the elastic-strap holders is you can easily slide these booklets in and out, which makes them easier to use and more functional, but also easy to replace once the booklets are used up. (I told you this was handy!)

In addition to the four booklets, you’ll also learn how to make a “slide through” folder with dedicated pockets on the front and back. You could add additional pockets to that slide through as well. (And to all the booklets, if you want to make your notebook super-super chunky!) The soft spine and the elastic band that holds the entire notebook closed makes it easy to stuff this notebook with as many goodies and notes as you’d like. You can also easily remove notebooks to create a more streamlined notebook.

There’s even a cute charm woven into the spine, and a barrel charm dangle added to the elastic closure band!

AND I include a full pattern paper cutting guide as well, so you can mat and decorate your Chunky Traveler’s Notebook with Tim Holtz’s Wallflower paper, exactly like mine, or use any paper collection you wish!

Here’s the video walk-through. (Have you subscribed to my YouTube Channel yet?)
