Project: Pocket Memoirs ©2007 Tim HoltzTM

This project featured artist/author Tim Holtz, Designer & Sr. Educator for Ranger Industries. Tim travels internationally to trade shows and stores to educate and introduce people to his world of inks and so much more. As a well known Designer, Tim has been a frequent guest on HGTV's The Carol Duvall Show, and his projects can been seen regularly in DVD's, books, stamping and scrapbooking magazines. The Scor-itTM Mini Board helped in the creation of his Pocket Memoirs

Steps for Creating the Covers: (click to enlarge)
Cut 2 pieces of chipboard 4 3/4”x3 1/2” for covers.


Cut 1 piece of 9x9 distressables paper in half at 4 1/2” then each strip at 3 1/4”. This will give you 4 pieces total (2 to wrap the covers and 2 to finish the inside covers)

Set your Scor-it Mini to 1/2” and score the 2 larger pieces at 1/2” all the way around. Line paper up against guide and score all 4 sides.

Apply glue stick to one side of chipboard cover and adhere to the center of the back of your cover paper within your scored lines. Repeat for other cover.
Cut off all paper corners at angle up to chipboard corners on both covers.

Apply glue stick along edges of chipboard covers and fold over paper tabs all the way around. Hold to secure and let dry. (Scoring the paper first allows for an easier fold around covers).

Apply glue stick along edges of chipboard covers and fold over paper tabs all the way around. Hold to secure and let dry. (Scoring the paper first allows for an easier fold around covers).
Apply glue stick to smaller inside page and adhere to back center of the covers.
Line a ruler along left edge of covers and measure 1/4” in from edge and 1/2” from the top and up from the bottom. Mark both with marker to punch.
Punch marked holes through chipboard covers using a Crop-a-dile.
Ink edges of covers (inside and out) with Distress Ink using Ink Blending Tool with Ink Blending Foam for a softer, blended application.
Steps for Pocket Pages:
Cut 3 pieces of 9x9 distressables paper in quarters to 4 1/2”x4 1/2”.

Set Scor-it Mini to 1” and score ONLY ONE end of each page.
Fold scored bottom of page up for pocket.

Secure on the RIGHT SIDE ONLY with stapler.
Place cover over finished pocket page and justify to the left.

Mark holes to punch for pages.

Stack up to 6 pocket pages and punch with Crop-a-dile. (This tool can punch through several layers of paper and chipboard at once). Repeat for all pages.

Ink edges of pages with Distress Ink and Ink Blending Tool. (see above steps)

Assemble book by stacking pages between both chipboard covers lining up holes on the left. Insert binder rings through both holes and secure.

Stamp on cover and embellish with found objects, ribbons, etc. Pockets are perfect for memoirs of your journey through everyday life.
Enjoy the Journey….. Tim
