Now here are the measurements for all the paper to make this folio. Yep that's right you too can make this awesome folio! LOL

2 cut at 8 1/4 x 7
score on the  8 1/4 side at  7  and  7 3/4

4 cut at 7 1/2 x 7
score on the 7 1/2 side at 1/2

8 cut at 7 1/2 x 4 1/2
Score on the  7 1/2 side at 1/2
Score on the 4 1/2 side at 1/2 and 3 1/2

score on the  3 1/2 side at 1/2

1 sheet at  7x7

Tags for pockets 
8 cut at 6 3/4 (or 7 if you want tag to stick out a tiny bit) x 3 1/4
8 cut at  3 1/4 x 3 1/4
2 cut at 6 1/2 x 6 1/2

All measurements are in inchs. 
When I say "score on the 4 1/2 side" I mean the 4 1/2 side is at the top of your score board

New simple binding.

Simple yes.. a little time consuming..not really.  But this hinge you can use on anything you want. And if you want to teach a class go for it. If you want to add it to your albums you sell go for it. There is nothing holding you back and you don't even have to pay for it 

See a few weeks ago I got a message on YouTube from someone claiming I'm teaching their techniques. While I have never claimed that I "created" any way to make albums this really irritated me.  

I have learned so many techniques from so many talented ladies throughout my years of crafting.  On YouTube, in store classes and at crops and in books. (I'm not talking about her book either as I didn't waste my money on it)

13 years ago I used to sell Stampin' up and learned most of my techniques through them. Then I sold Close to my heart. I have been to many crops and have picked up tricks here and there. 

We often duplicate what we see. That's called "Casing". We all do it in one form or another. For someone to send me a message telling me to stop making tutorials is crazy. 

This person never did answer me in what I supposedly copied and in the mean time I've been researching these "techniques" online, YouTube and through books. I found many examples of the same things I'm doing and teaching  all the way back to 2002. So for this person to claim she created these technique is totally bull hockey!

See I first saw a hinge binding system on a blog back in 2009 by Kathy Black at www.bublyfunk.typepad.com. Then I saw on YouTube by one crafter, how ever slightly different, then on yet another site which shall remain nameless. Who originally created it you say... Who freaking knows. All I know is it's been out there for long time, in one way or another.  

So with out further ado.. here is my version!

Scrapbook Folio style 3

Here is the 3rd style folio I made. Check out this video for a walk through. 


Now I made a tutorial.  



To create the base of the folio you will need 
1 - 8 1/2 x 9 Score on 8 1/2 side at 1/2, 1 1/4, 7 1/4 & 8
4 - 6 1/2 x 9 Score on  6 1/2 side at 1/2
2- 6 x 9

Attach 2 of the 6 1/2 x 9 and 1 6 x 9 on each side of the  8 1/2 x 9 sheet. 

The first panel on the left and right of the main page will contain 3 pockets

2 - 7 x4 - score 7 at 1/2 and 6 1/2 and 1/2 on 4  side
2- 7 x 5 1/2 - score on 7 inch side at 1/2 and 6 1/2 and 5 1/2 side at 1/2
2- 7 x7 score on 7 inch side at 1/2 and 6 1/2 and 7 inch side at 1/2

Attach the 7x7 pocket down first then the 7 x 5 1/2 pocket then the 7 x 4 pocket

The 2nd panels will contain 1 pocket. 
2 - 10 x 4 1/4 score on the 10 inch side at 1/2 and 9 1/2 and the 4 1/4 side at 1/2. 
Attach this pocket on the right side of the page with the folded edge of the pocket just a tiny bit away from the fold of the page.

The 3rd panels will contain  the multi pocket page which looks harder than it is to do. And many sligtly harder to explain in words. LOl 

2- 7 x 9 1/2 score on the 7 in side at 1/2 and 6 1/2 and 1/2 on the 9 1/2 side. 
Next you will LIGHTLY make a score mark 1 inch from the left and right side on the 7 inch side. now make a dot every 1 1/2 inches on both sides all the way down the 9 1/2 side. Now cut a line hhorizontaly across the page to the next dot. Creating a slit across the paper. You will do this for all 5 dots.  

The little reinforced sheet i made is cut at 1 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches you will measure 3/4 from the top and make a line across the paper. then a line 1/4 from both the left and right side. Do not cut past the 1/4 line. Now this piece can be attached to the pocket page.

Now flip the folio over. The first panel from the middle will be left blake. This will be the covers of the folio.

The 2nd panel will contain a pocket. 

2 - 5 x7 score on 7 inch side at 1/2 and 6 1/2 and the 5 inch side at 1/2
attach to the bottom of the page. 

The 3rd panel will contain a full pocket. 
2- 10 x 6 1/2 score 10 inch side at 1/2 and 9 1/2 and the 6 1/2 side at 1/2 
attach to the page. creating  full pocket

The tags measure
2 @ 4 1/2 x 5 1/2
2 @ 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
2 @ 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
2 @ 2 1/2 x 4 3/4
2 @ 4 x 4 3/4
2 @ 5 1/2 x 4 3/4
2 @ 7 x 4 3/4
2 @ 8 1/2 x 4 3/4
2 @ 8 1/2 x 5 3/4
2 @ 8 3/4 x 5 3/4
