Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 3

Hi everyone! I am back with the final post of the Wonderland Tea Party Folio series. If you missed the first two posts you can find them HERE and HERE.

This page has no pockets or flaps but I used a printable as the main focus and added a leftover bit of decorative cardstock, lace and pom pom trim.

I dug into my stash of Prima flowers which I layered, added a button and used the leaf and leaf sprig thinlits from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to finish off the flower.

I used the other insert that I had cut from the Photo Box Folder Diecut (retired) as an insert. All I added to it was the pointing finger sticker that I had in my stash.

I created this page with an assortment of printables, teacups, ticket stubs and a rabbit. The pocket holds a tag and cut a part and next to that is the Waterfall card that I cut from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits. I glued three of the sides down to create a “pocket” to hold more tags.

This page I created a belly band to hold a little book.

The book I created from an assortment of scraps of cardstock, notebook paper and a page from an Alice in Wonderland story book.

I did take the largest tag thinlit and folded a piece of patterned cardstock in half, placed slightly below the “cut” of the thinlit to create a page to sew into this book.

The last page of the journal I kept pretty simple. I created a double pocket from a printable and dressed it up with more Prima flowers and another leaf thinlit.

I didn’t mention in the previous posts about the closure I “was” going to use on my folio. I had actually punched holes, added brads and strung elastic to hold the journal together but I didn’t go back far enough with the holes on the journal to keep the elastic in place…it kept slipping off. So I adhered a small strip of cardstock to the back of the journal and on the inside I glued a piece of cardstock on three sides to create a pocket. Not what I had originally envisioned but it works!

I hope you have enjoyed following along on the process of this journal and as always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 2

Hi everyone! I’m back and I want to share a couple pages from my Wonderland Tea Party Folio (part three I will try and share tomorrow). If by chance you missed part one of my folio reveal you can find that post HERE.

I used the Pocket Thinlit from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to create a place to add tags and printables. I only glued it on two sides to create another pocket behind the pocket. I added a scalloped diecut from the Gift Box with Scallop Edges and Label Diecut that I had leftover from a previous project to the fold over on the pocket.

I adhered a couple of leaf sprigs that I had cut from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to a crocheted flower that I had in my stash to dress it up a bit.

I adhered an empty tea bag ( I carefully cut the top of the tea bag to create a pocket) on two sides to create another pocket. I cut out two of the smallest size tags from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits and added re-enforcers to the top of both tags. On one tag I glued the fussy cut image of the Mad Hatter to the top and on the other tag I added an Alice in Wonderland postage stamp from my stash. With this being a tea party theme I had to cut out a few of the teacups from the Teacup and Spoon Diecut and add as tag through out the journal.

The next page I matted with patterned cardstock and adhered a multi teacup printable (fussy cut) to create a pocket to hold the largest tag and teacup diecuts. I also added a teapot with tea time stickers to the bottom corner of the page.

I left the top of this page open so I could add an insert. I cut out two Photo Box Folders Diecuts (retired) (one to be used on an upcoming page) and glued a patterned cardstock, Alice image and oval diecut to one side of the insert. I adhered a fussy cut image to the tag too.

I used another printable that I fussy cut and adhered to create a pocket.

I embossed the tag with Queen of Heart Embossing Folder (retired), lightly inked over the embossed area with chalk ink and added a decorative brad to the top.

The next page I added another printable as a pocket.

I used the King of Spades Embossing Folder (retired) on this tag, lightly inked over the embossed area with a chalk ink and added the crown brad to the top of the tag.

This page has another set of double pockets with lots of tags and journaling cards.

Of course I had to add another teacup diecut to one of the pockets.

I’m going to stop here and will pick up (I hope) tomorrow with the final reveal of my journal. Eileen also has a new blog post today that shares more creativity from her team and you can find that post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 1

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a partial reveal of my folio that I created for Eileen Hull’s Chapter two Release Party (Thursday on my blog I’ll do a part 2 and maybe a part 3 on Friday…there’s a lot to share). I will start with how I created the cover of this folio so lets get started.

I cut two of the Folio Journal Diecut covers out from a file folder. Since the file folder isn’t as thick as the chipboard/mat board generally used to create the journal I ran each cover spine end first into the Diecut Machine. I ran that ends three to four times over the spine before finally running the whole diecut through the machine. I also used a bone folder to score the indention further before folded the spine on each cover and adhering together. Since I only ran the “cover” part of the diecut through once there is no indention . Plus it will be covered with cardstock/scrapbook paper to make it more sturdy.

I cut the “book hinge” from the Book Binding Thinlit, folded and applied Red Line Tape onto every other fold and stuck together.

I adhered the book hinge to the inside spine.

I cut patterned cardstock to fit/cover each side of the hinge. Instead of gluing each side of the page together I left an opening for a tag/insert. As you can see the initial folio started out tropical but with the cardstock being double sided I went with a colorful Alice in Wonderland instead.

The first page I used an assortment of leftover scraps, embellishments and printables. I glued only the bottom half of the heart to the page to create a pocket.

I applied an Adhesive Sheet to a piece of patterned cardstock before cutting out the wonderland sentiment from the Holiday Words Thinlits (retired). I glued/placed the chipboard letters that spell out Alice, the “in” sticker and the wonderland diecut onto the heart. The bunny is a printable and I used a flower and botton from my stash and I cut a leaf from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to complete.

As you can see there is a hidden surprise in the heart pocket! I cut two of the waterfall card thinlits out from Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits to create the covers for a mini booklet. I cut the pages inside smaller, punched holes in the covers, pages and tied together with bakers twine. I decorated with a fussy cut image of Alice and a diecut frame to finish.

I cut a tag for the inside of the page and added re-enforcer thinlit to either side of the tag before tying off fabric to the tag.

There you have it! As always if you have any questions please let me know. Also be sure to stop back Thursday to see more photos of the inside of this folio. If you aren’t caught up on the latest from Eileen Hull’s Inspiration and Educators Teams you can find these posts HERE and HERE.

We are Blessed Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on quick before this month ended and share another March themed tag I created. (I almost forgot…up oh!) This was the leftovers from the Authentique Calendar Paper Pad ( plan is to do something each month with the cardstocks…fingers crossed). I fussy cut several of the images out from the cut a parts that was included with that month. I used tiny scraps that I had leftover, inked edges and added a flower and leaf sprig from the Foilo Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlit Dies along with a piece of lace. I also shaped the fussy cut shamrock with a Stylus that is on the corner of the sentiment.

The back of the tag I kept it pretty simple with the layers. But I did used a shamrock stamp by Colorbox (no longer in business but still a favorite), fussy cut and shaped with a stylus before adhering to the bottom corner of the tag. I hope you enjoyed this quick post and as always if you have any questions please let me know.

Happy 8 Journal Page

Hi everyone! If you remember a week or so ago I shared the Vintage Girls and Flower Page (you can find that post HERE) and I wanted to share another page I created for my journal with you all today.

I wanted to create a page to commemorate mine and my husband’s anniversary. I dug into my stash and grabbed a wedding couple from a pack of the Paper Dolls, some markers and colored the bouquet of flowers, the head band and the boutonniere.

I used a scrap of patterned cardstock as the base for my page and more leftover cardstock, a lone diecut and half of a doily to decorate the page.

I found a marriage license that I had printed off but never used. I adhered the wedding couple to the printable and glued to the page.

I diecut the Happy and number 8 diecuts out and adhered toward the bottom corner of the page. I also cut one small flower from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlit Diecuts, shaped with a Stylus and added a leaf from a punch and placed onto the number 8.

There you have it! If you have any questions about this page please let me know.

Bunny Basket

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project this month for Eileen Hull! Since Easter is a less than a month away I wanted to show you how to create an Easter basket using the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits Dies and the Teacup and Spoon Diecut. Lets get started!

From the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits I cut two of the corner pockets with flaps and from the Teacup and Spoon Die I cut the “pocket” diecut out. I folded the “pocket” in half.

While still folded in half I cut a “v” out on either side of the flap.

While still folded I punched a hole at the top and added an eyelet on either side for the handle.

I adhered the corner pocket dies to each side of the flaps on the “pocket”.

I cut out two corner dies without flaps and glued to the inside of the pocket to cover the tabs and make it look neater.

I tied a 12 inch pipe cleaner to either side of the basket.

I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the bunny image and placed onto the front of the basket. Next I shaped flowers and sprig dies, placed a gem in the center of each flower and added to the bunny image.

I tied bits of lace to the handle and a shaped flower and a carrot sticker. Added Easter grass and bite size candies, a little bird and fake eggs to finish this adorable basket.

Leprechaun Kisses and Shamrock Wishes Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on and share a St. Patrick’s Day tag I created using the March cardstock set from the Authentique Calendar Paper Pad (I’m still shopping my stash).

First off I cut a tag out from the Tim Holtz’s Tag Diecut Set (largest diecut). I cut all the cut a parts from the March set in the paper pad out and even when further by fussy cutting certain images out. Next I shaped the shamrocks with a Stylus to add dimension, inked edges of the tag, a decorative diecut (from my stash) and cut a parts before assembling all the pieces together. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the leprechaun image and green thread bows before placing onto the tag.
