Foofy Fun!

My FOOFY Journal :-D
This past Wednesday, Sarah Spindell, one of my friends from Tracy Weinzapfel Studio's Mixed Media Monday's group, shared photos of a little pocket book journal she'd made in a recent class. 

Sarah was kind enough to do a little video on that process for me, as I was just not "getting" the method she'd described.  I'm a visual learner and a picture + video paints a thousand words for me.  lol

Today, I sat down to watch and make my own pocket book journal.  I am happy to report that I was successful and I am just thrilled with how easy this was to make!   I've named it my "Foofy Journal" and will devote it to all things foofy, feminine, frilly and fun in future!

 Now I know you're wondering just how this was made ... so if you click on Sarah's name at the start of my blog today, you'll be taken to her blog and can catch that video too!

I will be adding a gold filligree & pearl heart button to the front cover and an eyelet in the back cover to each hold a piece of ivory ribbon for a closing feature.

You can make these little pocket books as large or small as you wish - its really up to you.  It has SO much potential for versatility and gift giving.  Couldn't you just picture this filled with a few little ATC cards during an exchange?  Or how about making one to hold a gift certificate or gift card for a birthday gift! 

I hope you will give a try making one of these!  And tell Sarah:  "Von sent me!" when you thank her for the video.  :-)
