But sadly, this wee book which is the same size as the Journal in the last post is, well, completely insufficient for the job as crafting has inevitably taken over my life! So I decided to make a proper Organiser with dividers so I could organise everything all fansy shmansy pantsy styly!
I wanted to get the binders that Tim Holtz was selling. But to be honest, I was not willing to spend £4 for two wee binder do-daa's. So Little Miss Tight A**e here went on to the old World Wide Web to see if I could maybe buy 10 or 20 from some sort of stationery supplier. Now if you have ever tried to find these things, you will know how much like gold dust they are to find other than the Timmy ones of course. But I eventually found a guy who was selling them in boxes of 1000 on ebay!!!!! So Im in no way behind the door in asking for something I want and I certainly wasnt paying hundreds of quid for 1000 binder ringy thingies. So, I emailed and said
"Pretty please Mr Binder Seller Man, could you by any chance pretty please sell me some of your binder rings in a smaller quantity pleasy? I be a teeny wee crafter and dont need to buy them on an Industrial scale!!!"....
So Mr Binder Seller Man emails me back and says "I appear to get quite a lot of emails from you Crafty Lot but to be honest Misses Tight A**e, it doesnt make financial sense for me to sell them in teeny tiny crafty bundles of 10 or 20."
So, I flutter my eyes at him.....even though Im emailing him and I cant see the guy and I type in my sweetest typing Northern Irish voice......"Well pretty please Mr Binder Seller Man, how many do you think would be financially viable for you to sell to little ole me?"
His reply, in an abrupt salesman typing voice " The smallest bundle that I could sell them in is a box of 100 but the price would be a bit more expensive per unit as it is a much smaller quantity than I usually sell".
"Yes" he replied, "but I will do them at a good price for you."
"Aye right" me thinks ......."he said 2 seconds earlier they would be dearer per unit because of the smaller quantity but now he's saying he'll do me a good deal! Hmmmmmm?"
So me being the complete and utter mug that I am thought to me self, "Awww well why not. I can give some away in Blog Candies, use them myself obviously and maybe sell some to people who need them but at a good price".
So.......Muggins here has a rather large box of binders sitting in my craft room. SO......if you see a lot of mini albums and binder books being made in the next few........centuries........you will know why!
Anywhoodles, here is the video of how I made my Craft Organiser Album. Its not filled with papers yet, not decorated on the front or inside or any wee pockets added to the inside dividers or anything. This is just the basic video showing you how to make an album using the binders. They are perfect for organiser albums, smash books, mini albums, photo albums....you name it. Wendy AKA Flower Girl Cards you will probably find this video useful as you asked me how to make an album with the ones I sent you in your Candy. Any questions just give me a shout.

Ps......you might want to grab a cuppa tea/coffee and a bicky or two to munch on......
I hope this has inspired you to have a go and make any kind of album of your own. Im going to have a go at a mini album next. Any questions.....as usual just holler in the comment section below or contact me through my wee contact me button on the top right above.
