How easy was This?

Hello and welcome to Wednesday. I've been MIA as Life tumbled me about for a few days.
I have a madly ambitious class coming up this weekend using Come Away With Me from Graphic 45!
The album is looking fantastic but it is definitely going to be heads down!
BTW if you are reading this and coming....I'll be sending you info about some class needs...most of which you will have.

OK, ok what else have you been up to I hear you ask?
I made a little discovery, which is probably old hat, about the possibilities with one sheet of 12X12 paper.

Graphic 45 Good 'Ol Sport "Touchdown"
By slicing the paper into three horizontal pieces and using three pieces of chip board just a smidgen smaller than a postcard I created a mini book with a rolled outside edge on each page.

I wanted it to be fairly graphic and clean as it was most definitely designed for men.

Here's the first inside pages dressed up with a couple of stamps and a bit of texture stamping.
The outside edge rolls around so nicely, it is a terrific finish.

On the next two internal pages I used a new set of Time Holtz stamps that are so useful. I'm finding so many ways to use the Hashtags

The back page uses a Darkroom Door Stamp set that I also find versatile. The Simple Sayings that we use so often has each sentiment in 2 sizes. That's clever!

Cutting the holes for the string lacing with the Zutter caused much merriment when I used this design in a recent class. I couldn't get one of the prongs to cut well...until...I saw....only about 3 years from buying the tool a little piece on the side which said OPEN....yes it was so jam packed with paper punch outs the ladies had a little rest while I poked and prodded out the debris......pays to look closely at your tools is what I learnt!

Finally the mini book came together with some string and lacing.

Now I believe it is time to post this because the amount of class prepping I have today is.....WOW!
Enjoy your crafting
