So I thought I would share some of the projects that I have been working on lately.  I know that it has been a while since I have shared, but I hope everyone is doing well! Thanks so much for stopping by!

I have been working on a refillable planner, notebook book. I'm not sure what to call the project yet. I have used digital print files from Ephemeras Vintage Garden (the Vintage Queen Bee journal kit). I really love Debbie's journal kits and digital work. I have used them in the past either in projects here or on my YouTube channel

For the first project, I recycled a book, cutting the insides out and replacing them with pockets on each side of the inside cover. 

 In the pockets I will slip in my current planner and notebooks, etc, that I want to use. Once these need to be replaced I will replace them with new books. I will be making the insert books and will post pics when I am done.

 The second project is from a recycled book as well. 

This one though I did not remove all of the pages. I left about 8 pages at the beginning and end of the book then removed pages in this order; keep 4 pages, remove 7 pages, keep 4, remove 7. I did this through out the book, remembering to keep the 8 pages or so at the end. Then I glued pages together creating pockets throughout. I glued 2 pages before the torn area to 2 pages after the torn area. This places the torn out areas between glued pages and hides the torn areas. So, as I progress I will hopefully remember to post pics of the project. I am not sure what I will use this book for yet. I have a lot of different techniques to try out so maybe it will become my "try this" book.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend with family and friends. Stay dry and remember that we have these days with our family and friends in freedom that was purchased with the lives of real heros! God bless America and the ones that put their lives on the line everyday so we can live freely.
