Arts,crafts and everything in bewtween: The art of making a scrabook album.

     Well I forgot to wish everyone a happy valentines day, sorry about that hope you all have a day filled with love either for one another or self love which is just a important. We all need to learn to love ourselves to give or get the love me want.





    Well so guys already know that this season two of my podcast show and in season one I talked into great details about scrapbooking  pages but I really did not get into to much details about the album itself. The book were you are going to store these pages+98 that will hold your photos.
     Todays show is about how to make a regular size scrapbooking album and minis which are just scrapbooking albums just on a smaller scale.  You can always just buy a mini album or full size scrapbooking album at your local craft store. You can also get them online and some sellers are etsy.com sell them as well. Scrapbooking albums come in many shapes, sizes and themes so the choice is up to you what you are looking for.

Supplies that I use to make my scrapbooking albums/ mini albums


I love to use chipboard covers and some times I get them from eBay or you can get them from binditall.com

This is the same company that make the Zutter bind it all to make the holes in your covers.

You also get the wires or the Owire to put your book together. They have a YouTube channel as well for more helpful information

I have also use from time to time their inner pages, cover alls and everything else they have on their website to make scrapbooking album.


I have used Tim Holtz large binders, or you reach for Tim Holtz small binders, I used Tim Holtz mini ring fasters, you can just search for ring fasters which some in a wider range of sizes and colors. You can get them at your like office supply store such as staples

I have also used cereal box, pop tart box or shipping box to make an album cover. You can use ribbon and strong string for your binding.

I have also used make customable hold for your binding the cinch from we are memoir keepers, if you can find it on their site, a quick search well help you find the it. They also have a You tube channel to see it in action. they also have their own binding wires and covers for the cinch as well.

You can always just use a hold punch and the best one for the job would be crop - a- dile 2 Big bite. It maybe a little pricey but once you see the video on how it works then you see what I am talk about.

I love to use brads and eyelets, an scrapbooking store or online store would have them which comes many different companies, sizes and styles. 

Project life is instant pocket page scrapbooking which I started to use. They also have an app to create pages on line.  I also believe their are other bands with different styles to this kind of scrapbooking or you can make your own.



    So that covers they supplies and later on I will be able to share with you all on a video from the little crafter show my You tube show some of the different styles. I also going to plan on making some month album.  To inspire me to craft more and inspire you as well to give it a try. Thank you for stopping by.

A new path.

I believed that when I started the down this road for better health that it so at the time what was best for me and for a time that it worked. The only problem was that I realized that my journey wasn’t just about my physical health it was about my mental health as well. I would not trade anything in for the help, the love and support that I got during my challenges. So thank you, everyone, for that.

     I am not a hundred percent where this new path is taking me, but I am feeling a lot more confident and focusing more on my inner self. I feel like I have made a significant improvement in my sessions. I do know that some months, weeks or even days are going to be better than others. I am learning to ride the waves, enjoy the journey and stop beating myself up. It started with looking at things that I wanted to change so clothing and makeup have played a massive part in this new mind swift.

     I know that some will say that those are just temporary fixes and your right. I …

While at the beach.

Yes, I am a plus size women at the beach. Yes, I am wearing a two-piece swimsuit to the beach. Yes, I am having a bit of trouble with my top, that I had to readjust it a few times, it is the beach, and these things happen.  So it the couple that kept looking at me that was very rude so much so that I smiled in your face. To older people made feel out of place, again I laughed and kept looking around the beach is so beautiful to look at.
    It is the beach for crying out loud, I won't stop going, stop smiling or wearing my swimsuit. It is brand new. I got it from torrid. Maybe a bigger size may have helped, but summer is almost over.  I know that I don’t have to explain where I go my suit at, getting a bigger size or even that summer is almost over. Maybe to help someone find a great swimsuit for next summer, avoid sizing issues and I don’t want summer to end.

       I have stuff like this happen to me all the time, with all my clothes. Doesn’t matter about the fit or the col…

Working out because you love your body.

Before I start this post would love to thank everyone that has been stopping by to read and give me your input on the blog post. So thank you for my Dia friends and sisters. You all are amazing.

   I am not a doctor, coach or worked for the health department in any way. I do highly suggest that you see your doctor before working out. Take it slow,  it is not about always about losing weight it. It about building your inner and outer strength.  You also may feel some stress relief as well and can improve in a lot of other areas of your life.

     Something that read which really blew my mind,  workout because you love your body. This has helped me a lot in finally enjoying the journey. I trying not bet myself if I miss a day and listen to my collection. I have been trying to not go by the numbers on the scale but how my clothes are fitting, and that has made me a lot happier.  I have also been doing a ketosis ish) diet, working out a few days, dance class once in a while.
