Welcome to part two of tonight’s two part show…! Ahem.
I’m really anxious and excited to show you the results of 3 nights work slaving away on my living room floor surrounded by pink pages, ideas, sticky sparkly gems and girly embellishments…! On a personal level, I feel exhausted from trying to get out this burst of basic “creativity” that surged forward recently. Trust me, it is a godsend, but it’s also tiring!
As you know, I got bored with the setup of my Malden and found it to be too erm… well… not girly enough for my renewed love of pink thanks to watching my Heroine of the Modern Day: Ms Woods.
I got bored with my very basic “picture on a pre-made tab” and be done with it – I wanted something that looked interesting, creative almost, pretty and visually exciting. Oh, and the final reason (and should be most important but I forgot until now… oops), there were far too many tabs, too much information that didn’t need to be in there and generally… it was looking too stuffed full of things I didn’t really need.
As you know from my previous posts, I removed my business cards completely… but I also removed the “information” tab, “notes” tab, “inspiration” tab and the “A-Z” tabs. I have a heck of a lot of space left over! My Malden is now a Skinny Minx and itching for more information…
Anyway… without further ado… here are the new tabs:
And here is the new “today” bookmark:
Now, now that the initial photographs are up… I must show you what a grand job my laminator did of mucking up 2 of my hard worked on creations…. I admit, it’s all my fault though… I shouldn’t have gone so mad with the gems…!
The below photograph was of the front page to the diary showing the Organiser Number. On it featured an old fashioned showbiz mirror, and all the lights were made of clear gems. The laminator decided it would be ace to drag them away from their positions and um… halfway down the page at random. It also ate into the lace dollie and pulled it into one heck of a weird shape 😦
The only other problem I had was when I put 3 tabs in together to be laminated on an A4 laminating page… one of the larger gems got dragged off the original divider altogether, and ended up distorting this one 😦
Apart from those 2 issues (which will be corrected when I get my steam back…!) I’m loving, loving, loving my new ‘look’! Here is how it looks in the filo :). The floating tabs seem to have come out really well and are visible at-a-glance, which I’m really pleased about.
With all of that done, I think I can now rest peacefully until the next “surge” 😉
Have you ramped your filo lately?
