Sunday Funday with a freebie

 Hello everyone and welcome! I decided to do a post today to share some fun projects with you, and a fun project needs a fun freebie too of course, so here goes:

Regulars will know that I love creating journals, but they take a long time and are a lot of work, so I created a new small collection for my Etsy shop  which you can use to create the kind of project I will show, or you can make it part of a journal too if you want.

It's basically a little file folder you can fussy cut and with it come loads of tags and little cards.
I like to make the little folders into pockets, by putting accordion elements inside. If you come back here on Friday October 2 I will show you more detail of how I do that.
I am also on a stash busting mission, so at the moment I am making lots of different kinds of pockets, that can be filled with little tags, cards or whatever else you may have in your stash.

 Here I am mostly using elements that come with this new collection. If you are interested, you can find it HERE

I have been making, in fact mostly mass making, two different kinds of pockets, one kind is made from leftover scrapbooking papers, here is an example
On Friday I will share a link to a tutorial on how to make these.
The other kind of pocket is made out of old book pages, many junk journalers will have stacks of these, I certainly do.
I found ideas of how to make this on several YouTube channels, here is a link to one option: Triple Pockets
Or here is another one: I basically combined them.

Now as to the freebie, below is an example of how to make a little fun envelope, using some of the elements, that will then neatly fit into the pockets show above:
Here first of all is the freebie, so you can see what I'm talking about:
And here you can see how I cut out and then glued together one of the little envelopes:

The front

The back with one of the little circles, used as a closure, by just gluing down the bottom half so the little flap can be tucked underneath.

The little tags fit neatly inside the envelopes, and then the whole thing can be tucked into one of the larger pockets as a little interactive surprise.

Well, that's it for today, I hope I have given you some ideas with this little project. I think these little file folders can be a fun gift for a crafty friend, or indeed be an element you insert into a journal.
Like usual, if you would like to get the high resolution version of the freebie for printing, just email me by clicking here:

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
