I did get all my blog feeds switched over to Bloglines and I really like it. While I don't have time to keep up with all 400+ feeds on a daily basis, I do try to read as many as possible. After a week I was able to catch up on them all. I think this will work out quite well. The best part is the feature where you can "clip" a blog posting to save it in a special folder for reading later. I have a few different folders set up. I created one for blog candy, sketch challenges and another for card projects and ideas I want to try later. It's kind of my inspiration area.
This afternoon I went through my project folder and found something that looked like it would be fun to try. It is a manila folder Album. This was posted by Taylor at Taylored Expressions. I just so happen to have a ton of manila folders laying around so I just had to give it a try. Here is my first creation.
I can see so many uses for this. It could be a great album to carry around to show off your latest pictures of your kids. It could be fantastic for a new Grandma to show off her beautiful new grandchild. It could be a place to keep notes and shopping lists. I also think it would make a great Christmas/Holiday organizer. You could keep a to do list, notes, shopping list and then store all of your receipts. This is definitely one of my favorite projects so far. I had so much fun making this that I made a few more styles too. I will save those for posting later in the week.
Thanks Taylor for sharing this great tutorial.
