Games People Play at Paper á la Mode

   Time for a new challenge at The Outlawz Paper à la Mode and the theme is 'Games People Play.'  I decided to go with a Notebook/Folder sort of idea influenced by Dungeons and Dragons!  This is my own design using papers from Vectoria Designs.  

Front Cover

Back Cover
It has 2 large pockets - one is made of Acetate Alternative and holds the notebook in place.  The notebook has a fun cover and a small pocket on the inside.  

Pencils are held in place with elastic and a fun little bookmark/charm hangs off the spine!  

Wondering about my process?  Check out the video below. 

The Foundation is the much the same as the Keepsake Journal/Book in video below.  Sizes are different to fit the notebook I used inside the folder!  

Front and Back 6.3" x 9"
Spines 1.25" x 9"
Flap 2.13" x 9"
