HOW TO MAKE A 4 HOLE PAMPHLET STITCH
This is similar to the above 3 hole pamphlet stitch, but I thought it would be great for using in junk journals or books where you want to add smaller elements and bits of paper like envelopes, tags and tabs etc.  Click HERE to watch the video tutorial.   THIS IS A VIDEO TUTORIAL.

HOW TO MAKE A SOFT COVER WRAP AROUND BOOK WITH THE PAMPHLET STITCH

This is a great storage solution for your distress inks.  I don't have a great deal of space to store my distress inks so making a tower type storage unit was best for my limited desk space.  Click the photo above or HERE to go straight to the tutorial.  THIS IS A VIDEO TUTORIAL.

FLOWER TUTORIALS - Below are an array of difference flower tutorials I've done. If there is a flower that I haven't done a tutorial on yet but you'd like to see it done, please just ask me.  Before you laugh.....some of these flowers were made wayyyyyyy in my early days of crafting and could really do with being updated and redone.  See if you can spot the "What was I thinking posting that"flower  tutorial, lol.
