Organizer & Bookcase Tutorial

Featuring Le Romantique


By Madi Azar with Spectrum Art Creations


“Hello fellow artists,

My name is Madi Azar, and I reside in beautiful sunny Florida, USA. My husband and I are the proud parents of 2 incredible young people, one full grown son and our teenager Autistic daughter who is the inspiration behind our family art adventure known as Spectrum Art Creations on social media.

We started crafting as a motivation for my daughter to get through therapies and school lessons and soon realize that it was something that we both loved to do. Art allowed us to bond and taught us that anyone can craft. Crafting is therapeutic and healing despite of age, ability, or limitations. There is no right or wrong in art, just create whatever brings you joy.

I love creating and sharing tutorials that maximize your time and allow you to easily follow along (as a busy mom, I totally understand). I am eclectic in my style and love playing with everything from paper crafting to mix media.

Graphic 45 inviting me to join their ambassador creative team is proof that G45 believes in enabling and empowering inclusivity and promoting art at all levels. We are thrilled to be on this journey and hope that you will join us!

I love creating art for the sake of art, but I am also a very practical person, so if I can combine the two, then I am a happy person. There is just a win-win feeling to creating art you can use or gift.

For this project I chose to use the Graphic 45 Mother Goose Bookcase & Brag Book Kit. Having already put one kit together in the original format, I wanted to explore the versatility of the kit and try to reconfigure it and boy was that fun!



With having all the pieces precut, it was just a matter of making some minor adjustments in order to transform the kit into a multi-function organizer featuring plenty of storage in the middle and a double album bookcase on either side.



The new layout now features a total of 5 brag books and a top compartment which now serves as a sorter for photos, notes, cards, artist trading car, or tags. This was made using the Graphic 45 Folder and Sentiments Die set and once again, rethinking the die set allows it to easily be used to create tab files.



I used the Square Tag & Clock die set in order to embellish the chipboard center focal piece at the top and the remaining circle as a base for all the pieces. I love it when nothing goes to waste.



The Graphic 45 metal pieces just finish off the project beautifully. Lending it a touch of elegance and sophistication. Don’t you agree?

If you’d like to make one for yourself, I have created a step-by-step video tutorial. I hope you check it out and make one for yourself or as a gift. Simply click on the link below.

  1. I’d love to see a short video re the accordion base you referred to in the La Romantique book case & brag book video. I’m going to try it. Thanks

  2. Madi, I love your bookcase storage creation! It’s inspiring to hear about others who can channel their creativity into something positive that brings people together in a common bond! My little 8 year old grandson is severely autistic, plus diagnosed with ADHD, ADD, and a few others. He’s very violent. But working in my craft room with him seems to channel some of that, and allows an escape from all the craziness that goes on to the back of his mind. Thank you for sharing!
