Happy New Year!! It’s Emma with you today, I’d like to share a look inside my ‘Creative Therapy’ binder!...what’s one of those, I hear you ask!?...well, like so many of us, I struggle to find time to take time out for me, and craft. So I came up with the idea of dedicating a Sn@p! Binder purely for ‘creative therapy’! It’s a place where I will fill it with prettiness, just for the fun of it! No rules!!
Sitting down and crafting, even if it’s just for half an hour, is so good for my head!! I’m sure you understand what I’m saying!!...it’s like therapy!! Hence the ‘Creative Therapy’ title I’ve given it!
I covered the binder with a sheet of the ‘made with love’ 12x12 paper from the Hey Crafty Girl Collection kit. I used some of the fab chipboard pieces to decorate!! The Hey Crafty Girl collection is just so perfect for this binder!!
I’ve used the Robins Egg 6x8 Sn@p! binder, and I love how these come filled with lots of goodies to get you started!! Chipboard Kraft dividers, paper, pocket pages and patterned card!
I’ve decorated both front and back of the Kraft dividers, for the tabs I used stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet, these fit perfectly!! I made pockets on the reverse of all three dividers, and filled with tags! The tags are just right for those days when I only have chance to grab a few minutes to create, I can pull out a tag and decorate with some stickers or a few elements from the bits and pieces pack!
I love filling pocket pages with colourful designs! You can use stickers, chipboard, bits and pieces, even fussy cut some of the cut a part elements!!
For this pocket page, I fussy cut the letters spelling create from one of the 4x4 cut a parts and stuck down on pieces of 2x2 paper, it looks really effective I think!! You can find a video of me creating this pocket page on my Instagram feed.
I also like to add sequins in the pockets too, just remember to seal the tops of these pockets with a strip of clear tape!! I hope you enjoyed hearing a little bit about my creative therapy binder, there’s a full flip through which you can find here if you’d like to take a look.
