I have several sample note cards with really messy hand writing on it and a sample of the technique I used or an element I made. I have decided to keep them in a journal with the step by step directions so that I can recreate them in the future. This way I can look through the journal, see the element I'm making and have the instruction all ready with what I need to do it. The best part is that I don't have to scroll through my favorites on the Internet or Pinterest trying to find it.
I'm using the large ring binders (2") to hold everything together as I expect this to be a chunky book.
I am using a snack/sandwich bag to hold any templates I may have and clipping it to my instruction sheet so they don't get lost. I pulled out all of my notes and samples, rewrote them onto 5 1/2 x 8 1/2" paper, glued the punched samples down and attached any templates to the front of the project. I had fifteen sample in my to do pile that are now in this little album.
Here is one of the pages inside complete with the template. I haven't decided how I am going to organize them on the inside: by type of punch or by what was made so I have not done any tabs. One project completed for the Finish It Fridays, and I'm afraid to count how many are in there to go.
Thanks for stopping by.
