Card Organiser

As promised today I'm going to share my Card Organiser I made with you all. You can find the original Tutorial by Beate Johns here at SCS. After chatting with a friend and fellow demo that made one I wasn't sure if the original instructions would allow me to put enough cards in each section. Of course this would depend on the card you made but seeing how I usually use layers and sometimes add some ribbon, etc I thought I'd make some adjustments that may allow me to put an additional card or 2 in.

So here's the cover.

For the covers I've used some DSP from the Fall Flowers pack, the word 'Cards' is made from the Big Deal Alphabet stamp set and has been mounted using Stampin' Dimensionals. I've bound the book with my Bind-It-All but there are other ways to hold the book together just use your imagination.  I've tied Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Soft Sky double-stitched ribbon, Whisper White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and Really Rust Taffeta ribbon which I've made using Whisper White Taffeta ribbon and my Really Rust inkpad or you could use your marker.

The monthly pockets I decided to leave pretty plain and have added a little stamping on the Calendars. I cut the outer edge pocket and added some Soft Sky Ribbon to allow the pockets to expand a little more. The ribbon has been attached using eyelets for added strength but these aren't visible as the date calendar is layered over the top.

Not sure if you can see but I've still used that same stamp set. I just can't get away from it at the moment, although I have used other stamps from the set this time.
