My Project Book and I'm a Guest Designer Today!

Hi all my crafty friends,

YAY! It is finally Friday! I am so excited today because I am a guest designer over at my good friends 3 Girl Jam.  And they have a great line-up of some of my other crafty friends for their guest designer day. We all are showcasing their new crinkle ribbon bundles they came out with. You are going to love these new bundles! Awesome colors! If you have never tried this ribbon you have got to try it. I love it!

For my project I made this wonderful project journal, where I can record all of my project ideas, supplies, sketches and journaling ideas. I was thinking about how I could keep track of the projects that I make and if I have uploaded them to my blog and then the ideas just started flowing from there. So, here is what I came up with. I used the new Celebrations Bundle Crinkle Ribbon- this is a great set it has black and a silver color of ribbon.

This is the cover of the book. I make it 8 1/2" x 11". I used DCWV paperstack La Creme stack, which I love because the paper has velvety feel to it.

This is the inside cover, and I made a pocket to hold items in and used the Celebration black crinkle ribbon, as memorabilia holder.

The first part of the book is for Project ideas, this area is for project ideas and the supplies needed to make that project.  I used the black crinkle ribbon to make a page spot holder.
This is what the back part of the Project Idea page looks like, it contains information for the final project, including whether I took pictures, video, uploaded and blogged about the project and the final supplies, cuts, and measurements of the project. Then on the right side is a section divider.
This is the next section in the book. The left side is a divider section with pockets to put things in. The right side is for Journaling ideas on scrapbook pages.

This is the backside of the Journaling Ideas and the back cover of the book.

This is the back cover of the book. I used my cinch to bind the whole book together and I had to use 1 1/2" spine because it is a pretty thick book. I also used chipboard for the covers and inside divider.
If anyone is interested in the page files I made for the pages, let me know and I will add them to this post. I also made a video on how to use your Cinch so if you would like to see that let me know, and I will edit it and post it also.

Now, that I have had a chance to show all of you how I used 3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon, I hope you will go and check out their site. And to give you a little more incentive, they are giving away  a TOTAL PACKAGE BUNDLE and the new Celebrations Bundle and a Wine & Jewels Bundle (that's 64 yards of awesome ribbon!)  to a lucky winner who commented on every guest designers blog.
