One Little Word 2015: THE COMPLETE ALBUM

Thursday, December 24, 2015

Years from now, I will look back to 2015 One Little Word. The word that change me forever. It was a roller-coaster ride that test my patience and faith. I didn't like it but hell, I did learned a lot of things about myself, my marriage, our family, friendship and work. A tiny word that turn me into someone else I never expect. I was  blown away and at one point, I thought I'm going to plummet into sadness but this tiny word is also the one that uplift my spirit. Such a powerful word. 

This is not the album I envision at the end of the year but it was better than I expected. 

Most of the journaling cards I used came from the Project Life Kraft Edition

First, I copy/paste all my one little word blog post to word document then print. I used my Martha Stewart Crafts - Scoring Board to create a scoring line as a cutting guide but as you can see, I still messed it up. 

I miscalculated the space needed for my printed journaling to fit in my cards so, I improvised. I folded the paper in half and add a tab. 

The tab above, I used manila craft tag, Switchboard Collection - Ephemera and Crochet Thread

The lovely paper clip is currently available in our shop, Ordinary Days clear stamp by Ali Edwards and the "you are my favorite memory"came from Switchboard Collection - Chipboard Stickers

The "rain rain go away come again another day chipboard sticker" is by Pink Paislee Hello Sunshine Collection - Chipboard Stickers

Without a doubt my favorite thickers is Patchwork by American Crafts

For binding, there are several options:

  • Sewing-I personally love this technique but there's no way I could sew the journaling cards side by side. 
  • Gluing-just like sewing, there's no way I could glue them side by side. 
  • Binder rings-the mini album is too thin for a binder ring. 
  • Elastic band/Rubber band-the best and only option I have and I love it. The gold rubber band match the over all color theme of my mini album. 

At the back of the cover page, I added my reason and why

This is going to be one of my favorite mini book. EVER.
