Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary padfolio

Standard

Hello to my little blogging family.  I have a very cool post for you today!  I made a very cute little padfolio using my September kit from Scrapn’ With Flair.  I contains papers from Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary and is gorgeous!!!  This padfolio was made following a YouTube video made by a wonderful lady by the name of Shannon Green.  You have to go and check out her video’s…..she makes the most amazing journals and has some of the best tips and tricks!!  Here’s a link to part one of the video for this padfolio:  Shannon Green.  You can find part two in her video listing.  Check it out!!

The pen slides through a little slot and this is what keeps the book closed!  Check out the I Am Roses roses that came with the kit along with the skeleton leaf (except for the gardenia which was included in the July kit).  And that wide eyelet lace along the bottom…..OMGoodness!!!  It is simply beautiful and also comes in the kit.  You’ll have to check out the YouTube video to see how I altered the pen to match the padfolio…..very cool.

Check out the two pockets on this page…..the one at the bottom and the triangle at the top is also a pocket!!  The sticker is from the kit along with the little I Am Roses cherry blossoms.  The sting of half-back pearls and the lace on the bottom pocket are from my own stash.  I included a piece of cardstock (8.5 x 11 folder in half) as one of the inside pages!

On this page I added the file tab from the sticker sheet included in the kit.  There is another pocket on the bottom of this page that’s been trimmed with lace from my stash along with the last of my half-back pearls from my July kit!

 This page has a diagonal pocket on it.  You can also see another file tab attached to this page.  The lace is again from my stash and I included one more of my I Am Roses cherry blossoms to this page.   You can also see another piece of my cardstock from my stash as a page insert in the second section of the padfolio. 

Here’s the last page of the folio.  It includes a pocket that has room to fit a note pad in it!  I also attached one of the chipboard diecuts included in the kit that has a piece of lace tied to it from my own stash.  There is also another strip of lace from my own stash along the top of this pocket.

So, there you have it!  My completed padfolio. 

Here’s my YouTube video of the whole project here:

I’m off to continue with the cleaning/organizing/purging of my craftroom where I’m trying to figure out why on earth I’ve kept and accumulated soooo much stuff!!!  As always, I love to hear what you think……till next time!!

Huggsss,

Yvonne  😉
