Hi everyone :-)
Have made a journal mini album that I will use for daily ideas and memories. This Gilded lily papers  from Graphic 45 are so so beautiful and I think it is my new favorite paper line :-)

Video with a short tutorial for the file folder pages,


Made the cover of this book by gluing the papers down on Tyvek envelopes with multi medium matte.The punch is from Martha Stewart.

Inside the cover I made an envelope with and cut out a frame so I can journal direct on the left over copy papers I used for the jounaling pages. Have a tutorial on how to make this dimensjonale envelopes and here is the link,Here is the link to how to make Pizza box, boxes, basket and 3D envelope,

Some fussy cutting going on again on the right side to make a pocket for some tags.

Inside the 1. file folder page I made a pocket and added a frame behind.
Made a magnetic bookmark out of 2 tags seen on the right side top to hold some tags or be used as a note holder.

Here I used the border to make a magnetic clip.


An other magnetic clip and on the right side I saved the frame when I fussy cut out images and addad an other cut apart under to make a pocket. Have a tutorial on how to make this tags and here is the link,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gg2R9UpOmqk

Used the same frame shape here and there is place for a photo inside.

Here I made a flip on the file folder page and inside there is a pocket. Punched the hinge to make an other pocket on the right side and the punch is from Martha Stewart.

Made a corner bookmark to hold some copy papers together  on the left and on the right side there is a side pocket.

The other side of the corner bookmark.

Backside cover with a note block also made out of the left over copy paper.


There is a frame behind the note holder.

The note holder frame can be taken out.

Close up picture of the note holder. 
Love love this Marie Antoinette ladies and flowers :-)

All the papers are glued together wit repositionable tape.

 Close up picture of the magnetic bookmarks.

This are great to hold different notes in place on the pages :-)
