Multimedia Covered File

Hallo Bloglanders

Still pouring wet in Sunny SA!! Let's warm the air with some crafting fun!  I'm here to show what I made for my mother's birthday.  They downscaled a bit more than a year ago and now there is no room for clutter in their flat.  Still, mum wants to keep letters, pictures and info on her children, grandchildren, garden and home.

So, I came up with this Multimedia A5 covered file:

I used some calico, painted it with fabric dye and then added stamping, ribbon and embellishments from my stash. And this is what the file looks like from the back:

Imagine all that smiling peeping at you from your bookcase! I even made divider pages for the inside:
And some close-up pictures:

I love how my project turned out and best of all - I didn't buy a single thing!  Most of the stamps came from different MME sets and the dies used to cut the fabric are from Spellbinders.

That's it from me.  I hope you enjoyed seeing my mum's birthday gift as much as I did making it.  I think I'll do one for myself as well.  Thanks for visiting my blog today. Please come back to play as I'll be back with some more crafting fun. Have a Terrific Tuesday!


  1. We've had tons of rain lately, too. What a great project and I just know your Mom has to be thrilled to have such a talented daughter!

    1. Thank you so much for the compliment!! So sorry to hear that you are having rain - you should be swimming and eating popsicles! I'm sure the sunshine is on its way.

  2. Wow! It's amazing!!!!! LOVE IT!
