Vintage Theme File Folder Album

Today, I am sharing this album I created using File Folders. There are many tutorials that can be found online if you want to make one. I did my own thing and was pretty happy with the result.

For my project the folders were sewn with my machine twice down the middle. I also used a variety of washi tapes, pattern papers, ephemera, vintage photos and distress ink.

There are many areas were more blank papers can be added to allow for journaling. I opted not to Modge Podge or use Liquidtex Matte Gel on the cover, but that would make it more sturdy.

I hope you can have some fun and try making a File Folder Album too!

A Little Sweetness…

Happy February! I always love when this month arrives because we are closer to spring. It also is my birth month and I adore Valentine’s (heart everything)!

I hope you are all surviving the winter and what a strange one it has been! Very little snow, and dark and dreary days. I think January saw the sun maybe 3 days? While I can handle the cold, I need that sunshine too!

Today, I was working on some prototypes for an upcoming event and this is the first one for a Collage Card class. I was happy with the results. Now, to get cracking on the other tomorrow.

Sweet Valentine Tag

Hello My Friends! Today, I am sharing with you a large Valentine tag that you can create. The tag measures 5 x 7 and can be used or displayed many different ways. Make several and create a garland to hang on your mantle, headboard or door frames.
