Catching Up! More Tutorials

Hello my crafty friends, I feel like I need to catch up with all that I have been sharing. My latest is this easy to make one page wonder. A really easy to make folio to hold ephemera, and this one has a lovely surprise cover! I had so much fun making these.


I mentioned in the video that I would have the measurements for the smaller size also, so here they are:
Paper size 8 1/2" x 11"
Score on the long side 1 1/2", 5 1/2", and 9 1/2" turn to the shorter side and score at 1 1/2" That's it. You can make them larger or smaller!

We also made these really easy collaged postcards / journaling cards that you can make with all you already have in your crafty space. 


Have fun crafting!

Mini Album / Journal - Using One 12x12 Paper +

I super love how this mini album / journal came out. It is so fun to put together, and you only need one sheet of 12x12 paper to do it. If you wanted to add the centre pockets to it (optional) you will need an extra scrap piece of paper. I show you in the video how to make one, make sure to check my instagram for updates on others that I am finishing up. 


Here are the measurements I used for this project:

12x12 paper - if you have single sided paper / non directional that works best
Score at 5 1/2", 6" and 6 1/2"
Turn once and score at 4" and 8"

For the pocket page:
12 x 5 1/2" paper
Score on the long side at 5 1/5" x 6" and 6 1/2' 
Turn once to the short side, score at 1 1/2"

Have fun crafting my friends. Remember to tag me if you make one, I love to see what you create!

EASY To Make Glue Book - Smash book


LOVED making this so much. I have always loved glue books but this one is just my fave. As always, I love to reuse / repurpose paper and this was the perfect project to do that with. 

What is a Glue book? I define it as a book where I go and get away, my zen spot. In the video I give you more details on what it is, what you can use to make some and I also show you how I'm using the one we make. I have made these before and also have links to those videos in the description box.

For more ideas on how to reuse and recycle items for your crafty creations, check out my YouTube channel.

I hope you find some inspiration!

From packaging to a fun new project!

I had so much fun repurposing and upcycling packaging and junk mail envelopes, also known as mailers. I really enjoy making something new, out of something that was destined to be thrown out. I hope you find some time to craft a little something today. 

I did use some supplies from some of my fave shops. Check out their items and if you choose to purchase anything, use coupon code: lizthepaperproject for a discount!

Taperlogy: Click Here

I love this project because we add so many pockets, and secret areas to put things in. A great project to keep or to load up with goodies and send to a crafty friend! Also great for the environment, since we get to epicycle so much! Use your scraps to make this an even more environmentally friendly project!

If you want to see more project ideas on repurposing, up-cycling and rescuing paper, check out my YouTube channel for more how-to / tutorials and DIY's. 

I do hope you tag me on Instagram / Facebook if you do make one, I would love to see what you create!

Have a crafty day!

Folio / Journal Cover Using Some Repurposed Materials

I was inspired to make a folio / journal cover with some junk mail envelopes. I have made many projects in the past with junk mail envelopes, and I wanted to try another similar style. I also have a quick unboxing of some new to me supplies from your creative studio. I love their vintage style subscription boxes!
