Welcome Back

Wasn’t sure which blog to put this on, not sure if poetry is taking this blog too far off topic, so I posted it on my other blog

A Space To Heal instead.

Do pop over and have a look, be gentle with me, my dyslexia meant the finer points of English were lost on me at school, grammar and punctuation are lost on me. I just write from the heart, the sounds of my soul, borne on paper.

Here is my new poem

https://aspacetoheal.wordpress.com/2015/11/07/simmer-down-2015-november-pad-chapbook-challenge/

Thanks for reading, if you like what you see, do follow the new blog too. I will post craft stuff here, when I feel able too. Thanks for your patience in the mean time.

A Space to Heal

Welcome Back

I am not abandoning this blog, promise, but I need to write about things unrelated to paper craft and rather than taking this one off topic I have started a new blog.

A Space to Heal

Its about healing, recovery and trying to find ways to find peace, to de-stress. There may also be a little gardening, so expect makeover type pictures there.

If you like meditation, and tranquility type of topics, come and have a look round.

I will come back to this post, I just need a place to heal and recover before I can do that. There are lots of great how too’s and reviews here that are still relevant to today, so I hope this blog will remain useful to you.

best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Thought for the day

Welcome Back

Taking one day at a time. Trying to rebuild my life from the tattered shards of grief and loss. This sums it up rather well;

I hope to post something craft related again at some point. Right now I’m working on breathing in and out.

My new favourite author is Pema Chodron:

Hi All

I haven’t given up on the blog honest! I’m having a lot of trouble with internet connection and even more problems with WIFI connection. Its now very rare that I can get online, so I’m reliant on gaps in DHs schedule to get access to a wired connection upstairs.

There was meant to be a calendar here today but… its taking minutes to open pages, then either connection drops out or the computer gets board waiting and times out. I’ll try again tomorrow.

Sorry for the delay!

Best wishes

Billie

Welcome Back

If you like making your own pages for Filofax, these templates will help you punch your pages just right every time. I discovered that the Filofax website has lists for all the pages sizes used in their various planners. I’ll add a link at the end of the article. From here I cut 180 gsm cardstock to the sizes needed for my planners.

To make your Filofax Personal template, you will need

  • Cardstock
  • 80gsm paper
  • Hole punch, either a dedicated one to your planner size or an adjustable one such as Rapesco 66-P
  • Pencil & pen
  • Paper trimmer or ruler & craft knife or if you have to scissors

Method

  • Cut your cardstock and paper to the same size as your planner pages. Personal: 171 x95 mm
  • Fold your paper in half short sides towards each other to find the centre of the paper.
  • Draw a line on your paper to mark the centre point, draw it across the whole sheet
  • Copy this centre line onto your cardstock and draw a thin line in pen across your card as shown in the picture.
  • Move the punching parts to the spacing correct to your page size; if you are using Rapesco 66-P for personal; move the punches apart to create the widest gap in the centre.
  • Insert your cardstock into the punch lining the drawn line with the centre line of the punch, and punch.

You can save this cardstock template to use with any further pages you want to punch. Just lay your template on top of the page you want to punch and its easy to see where to line up to. Store it in the back of your planner so you don’t have to go on a major hunt of the house to find it.

Hope this makes it easy for you to get your own pages to line up to the commercial ones in your planners. Let me know how you get on.

Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

I discovered that the Filofax website has lists for all the pages sizes used in their various planners. I’ll add a link at the end of the article. From here I cut 180 gsm cardstock to the sizes needed for my planners.

To make your Filofax Mini template, you will need

  • Cardstock cut to Mini planner size; 105 x 67 mm
  • An adjustable one such as Rapesco 66-P
  • Pencil & pen
  • Paper trimmer or ruler & craft knife or if you have to scissors

Method

  • Cut your cardstock and paper to the same size as your planner pages. for the mini that’s 105 x 67 mm
  • Draw a line on your card 43 mm up from the bottom of the page and the full width of the page as shown on the picture
  • Using Rapesco 66-P move the punching parts to the spacing correct to your page size;  that’s all towards the middle together, with no gap between the punches, for Mini pages.
  • Insert your cardstock into the punch lining the drawn line with the centre line of the punch, and punch.

You can save this cardstock template to use with any further pages you want to punch. Just lay your template on top of the page you want to punch and its easy to see where to line up to. Store it in the back of your planner so you don’t have to go on a major hunt of the house to find it.
