Photo-Organiser-type-thingy

Does anyone else out there in blogland watch the shows from TVWeekly? I joined their site a while back and I get an email from them everytime there's a new episode - some I watch, some I don't. Tonight I actually tried one of their projects for the first time, and it won't be the last!

They have a great system, you watch the show, then you download the step by step instructions and follow them. It made the whole thing really easy to do, and (if I say so myself) it came out just as nice as the one in the show! How often can we say that about instructions we've followed? Oh, just in case you want to try this one yourself, the file tabs on each section were cut from one of my freebie files from a few weeks ago, they're not part of the original project.

BTW... this was the first project I've made with my new ATG gun - it's my new favourite toy! :)

Anyway, here are the pics. (It's a gift for a friend that did me a favour recently, I hope she likes it!)

[EDIT] A few people have asked me what an ATG gun is. It's an adhesive tape dispenser made by 3m. I have the ATG 700 which takes 1/2 inch tape, but you can also get an adaptor for it that lets it take 1/4 inch tape. The tape has a very strong bond, so is great for minibooks or projects like this one. It's under £2 for 44m of tape, which works out VERY cheap when compared to the small tape runners you can buy in craft/scrapbook stores. The gun itself is a big outlay initially (£13 on Amazon UK, a lot more expensive in the USA, oddly!), but pays for itself in a matter of weeks if you use a lot of those tape runners.

it's a great site, Tricia Morris is a real expert at putting books together. I've had my ATG about 5-6 years - couldn't manage without it.

I have made this very same card box from Tricia's webisode. Their stuff is so totally awesome. And if you have never used a Michael Strong stamp you don't know the joy you are missing. You really should try his stamps they are fantastic. I love your card file box. And I love very much your work. Thanks for sharing.

Jennie said...

I've made several of those accordion files thanks to Tricia's video. I can't say enough about her show, and her company, Club Scrap. They have really great products, and they put together some really fun projects.

I love the way you used the tabs on your dividers. Which reminds me, I need to add a few things from your files to my cart :)
