My Crafty Journal for Feburary 2011

A little later than I had planned, but I am happy to be able to share the February pages for My Crafty Journal with you today. As a bonus I have included a few extra papers that you can print out and use as page dividers or for your crafty pursuits.

For the tabs on the page dividers I suggest that you cut out the tabs as shown above, then fold in half. You will see that there is a feint grid line exactly in the middle to make it easy for you.
 Using a sharp pair of small scissors carefully cut out the the fold tab leaving 2-3 mm the white background. The folded tabs are now ready to attach as required to you page dividers.

Page dividers can be made from any heavy weight paper (approx. 180gms) or card stock. They don't have to be A4 size as long as they are the same width as the rest of the pages it will work. I have been using a mix of scrapbook paper, photos, my own artwork, recycled packaging, manila folders or regular page dividers purchased from the local office supply store. The choice is yours. Throughout the month I find that I am also attaching bit and pieces of ephemera and embellishing or adding some art to my dividers as I tidy my desk and try to stay clutter free.
If you are into scrapbooking and memory keeping, either paper or digi you may like to check out  Paperclipping They have live shows twice a week.. The Paper Clipping Round Table and the Paper Clipping Digi Show. I enjoy listening to these shows at the end each week and find this this it the ideal time to work in  My Crafty Journal and organise myself for the week ahead. I pay bills online, check emails, visit and leave comments on friends blogs and tidy my computer files also during this time, leaving me up to date and ready for Monday.
  I would love to hear how you are using your  My Crafty Journal month by month as a place to journal, chronicle, plan your projects and organise your crafty life.  Feel free to email me here... or leave a comment.
