Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Gate Fold Album Loaded

  I won't waste your time by telling you all over again how to make this album. I just wanted to share it after I had the pages trimmed and the tags finished with ties.

   Yes it is bulging. But I make a lot of really thick ATC's. I love to embellish them. So sometimes they are quite bulky. This album holds more than 100 ATC's quite nicely. I am going to have to make another one day. This album only has room for two more ATC's and I am making them for swaps at this time. This really isn't hard to make. All I need is the time to make another.
   When I make another I will make the spline deeper. Other than that this album is all that I hoped it would be. The tags in the pockets work great. Actually I'm really not disappointed that it bulges. It kind of makes me happy. I made all these ATC's and I made this album that is stuffed with my art.

Take Care
