About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

An A to Z of Me - Sum Up

Here's the cover of my "A to Z of Me" album, I did it near the beginning of this adventure and just added to the pretty patterned paper which was already on the album when I received it as a gift.

The album is spiral bound so I couldn't resist a few ribbons to coordinate. The back cover is just the same unaltered patterned paper.

Here are some ariel photos of the whole album. It has plain front and back covers plus 4 pages. Each page is made up of a envelope folded in a "Z" shape with pockets in either the end or a fold, all covered in patterned papers. The black card is used to create a binding on each page. A friend made the album so I don't have any instructions. The tags were all made out of plain white card.

I love my A to Z album.

Thanks again Bernice.

Beautiful. I love it. I think I've found a uTube video with instructions for z fold envelope journal so plan to make my own. I am so glad to have "met" you here. I so hope we can continue to "talk" and I plan on "visiting" you often.
