Saving paper when making "the ultimate bragbook" photo album

I made this photo album with kathyorta on YouTube.  Go to her YouTube channel to get the link to her ustream Paper Phenomenon instruction video.  She is a hoot to craft with.   After I put this first album together, I wanted to be able to save paper.  Even though the album as made by Kathy is awesome, I wanted to mass produce some albums and saving paper was needed. 
Thanks for visiting and watching my videos.  Amy

2011 Spring Flood Mississippi River Pool 6 Crest 16.58 feet

Normally the river level in Pool 6 is usually around 7 to 9 feet.  Flood stage is 13 feet.  Crest on 4-16-11 at 16.58 feet.  As of the date of this post, 4-21-11, the river is at 13.3 feet and should be below 11 feet in a week.  Now if it would only stop snowing!!! It's the end of April already.

New crafting area, hopefully renewed creativity.

My oldest daughter moved out the first weekend of April.  I'm filling the void with crafting supplies.   Leaving the dark, dank basement is such a relief.   26 years ago, when I moved into this house, I always thought this room would be a great sewing room.   I don't really sew anymore but now that I get the space back, it will be a great crafting room!    It faces east and gets really nice light, especially in the morning.   I have been working on some projects.   I watched Paper Phenomenon's ultimate brag book on Ustream and I've made a couple of books.  I love this book because it holds 4x6 photos and is a perfect gift for the non-scraper.    I'll share those with you in another video.  After I made the first one following Kathy, I made another using less paper.  I've also tried some things with the pencil shavings and I need to get back to making some cards.      Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.  Amy
