For my crafting organiser, I’ve used the base instructions for the Perpetual Organiser, which is a Cal Summers design at FB Paper Scissors Story. I’ve already done one using the full kit from Scraplab but this one was done using a couple of paper pads from The Works, which I got in the January sales for £1.50 each. I do love a bargain and I was really impressed with the quality of the papers in the pads.
I wanted something to keep track of all the crafty things that I’ve started but not yet finished, things that I’ve been intending to start for ages and odd sewing tasks that are piling up, all in the hope that it’ll get me more motivated to get cracking.
This is the front cover, with a pocket and flap with magnet closure. I didn’t have any matching embellishments for the paper pads so raided my stash for some flowers and brads and used my new-ish stamp and die set for the leaves and some more flowers. I printed off lots of different craft-related quotes and used them on the cover and throughout the book.
This is the spine. The large pocket pages are more or less the same, just in different colours. I’ve added quotes to the inside covers though. I’m using the pockets for pictures of any finished projects for that month. The stacked pocket pages all have different quotes but I didn’t add any embellishments as don’t want to make it too bulky. Sorry about so many photos. I’m really chuffed with this and really enjoyed making my own embellishments and using up some old stash. I’ve already started using it, as you probably spotted from my messy handwriting.
I’m so impressed with how easy this book was to make considering how complex it looks. There are so many uses for it too. I think someone is making one as a wedding planner.
