deconstructed….

so i had to cruise to Ikea today, and get a couple more "kassett" portfolio because i think they are so cool- and they are closing them out over at Ikea… i love that place!

tonight i did introduce the new fab Daily Gratitude kits.. and the "Ornate Alpha kit"… that is a MUST HAVE!!

Alpha
i am loving the new Daily Gratitude kits- as well as the reminder to look for things to be thankful for…the colors are fab! so i wanted to make something just for me! SO- i was looking for something to work with, and i found a left over portfolio thing, and it was perfect… i wound up creating 2 different projects from the portfolio- yep- i hacked it apart (without cutting myself…)  i really like how they turned out- so much fun 

Cutting
so this was the first project… a flip out- or "fan book"… not sure what i would call it… 

Flip book
not even really sure how to photograph this one- to really show it.. 

Flip
the portfolio is made into a little 'casing' for the pages. the pages are all attatched in the upper left corner of the casing.  then i put a book ring through the holes for all the pages to attach to.  i had fun decorating the cover with Parisian Anthology accessories: Flower darling, Brooch Brads, ruffle darling, flair

the 2nd project was a mini-book … the cover was the portfolio, and i attached the pages using the bind-it-all.

and i shared how to create instant coordinating paper out of the Parisian Anthology papers… using Distress Ink: i used: Crushed Olive, Mustard Seed, Broken China, Pumice Stone.

i'll have to show more photos when i get some photos in there… i used a 3/8" binding- i might have to pull it out and put 3/4" or something.
