Happy Fall Photo Folio using Maja Designs "Autumn Poem"

Hi Friends!

I am sharing a Photo Folio I created.  

I used Maja Designs "Autumn Poem" paper collection to create this folio.  I also fussy cut elements from 2 of Prima Marketing's "Pink Autumn" paper collection.I believe the Prima paper names are Pink Autumn and Sweater Weather.

 I created some die cut flowers with Spellbinders Large Die of the Month (January) - Club Blooms.  I inked them to give them some more dimension and interest. 


 It has a burlap ribbon to tie it closed, and it also has magnets holding it closed. 

Fully opened it is 29 inches long.

There are tuck spots.
And tags to journal on.
Or you could put photos there.
I have put a little envelop that is held closed with a ribbon.
It has a booklet inside the envelope.

A pocket with 4"x6" photo mats.

There is a removable photo booklet.  It will hold 4"x6" photos.
A waterfall that will hold 4"x4" photo's

Here you may untie the bow and remove the booklet.

A tuck spot with a journaling tag.

I counted a 30 places to put photos.  Sizes 4x6 , 4x4, and a few smaller. 

There is a video walk through HERE.

  Here is the tag I created for my swap partner Elizabeth. I thought a blue bird of happiness in a nest and lilacs would say spring. 

I used  Papertrey Ink Die Feathered Friends Set 15 for the bird. I inked on the blue color.

I created the nest with string, and the eggs with paper clay painted with acrylic craft paint. The lilacs are made by punching lots of small flowers.
There are various flowers from my stash. Chipboard pieces and Reneabouquets butterflies.


 I also created a little house for Elizabeth. It fits over a tea light and lights up.
Using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Paper Village Thinlits Dies

I created the flowers with a 1/8 inch hole punch and a 1/4 inch hole punch and flower shaper tools 

Thank you so much for stopping by to look!

Spring Time Village

  First time using these village dies. 

 Sizzix - Tim Holtz - Thinlits Dies - Village Collection

It was a bit challenging gluing the tiny parts (like the windows). but so fun! 
I used metallic paper behind the windows hoping it would reflect the light and look like the lights were on.

 The collection has so many parts that make it easy to create many different styles of buildings
I know will be making more of these in the future.  :)
Thank you for stopping by!!!

January Morning Walk 3

 Hi scrappy friends! I know I haven't posted more about my "Morning Walk Journal". It has been the January from....(you know where) .... around here. We had major wind storms and power outages that lasted for days. And then to top it of 2 weeks ago I had to go in for eye surgery to repair a detached retina. Surgery went well and I'm healing as expected, but for about 3 months I won't be able to see out of my right eye. Everything is just a big blur in that eye. I have just recently resumed walking with Ida Mae. And I do intend to get back to my Morning walk journal. This page I had begun before the ....(you know what).... hit the fan, and I just finished it.

 I remember thinking the quote "Red Sky At Morning... " When I was taking the photo's. I had no idea the storm it predicted would be so bad. Thank you so much for stopping by to look!!

January Morning Walk Journal Pages 2

 Hi Friends!

I have 2 more Journal pages for my "Morning walk" Journal.  You can click HERE to see my first post telling about my project. 


This page is about seeing these long spikes of ice growing out of the ground when it gets cold.  I think they look interesting, And my imagination would make them into things like a miniature ice castles, cities, or maybe ice troll hair. 

After taking these pictures I looked them up on the internet, and discovered the scientific explanation of them.   they are called 

Needle Ice!  (you can click on the picture to enlarge it if you would like to read it)

49 and Market Nature Study papers for the back ground. 49 and Market Nature Study General Laser Cut Elements.  I cut the flowers from Sizzix "Spring Stems" flowers die and brushed them with heavy gesso to make them look a bit snowy.  I cut the number "5" from's "Bold Numbers" die set.  I used a public domain image of a troll, altered it, and printed it along with the journaling on my printer.  I fussy cut the troll,  and also I used some ephemera from my stash. I edged some pieces with Vintage photo distress ink.


The next page "Snowy Sunday!"

This page is about the fist big storm of the year.   10 inches of light and fluffy snow.  So pretty to walk through!     
And not to difficult to clean up.  

"Less walking and more shoveling".  😀

2nd page creating:  I used 49 and Market papers as the base page.  I have lace to give a snowy texture. The quote comes from the children's book "the Snowy Day" .  I used decorative scissors on the edge. I die cut the pine branch from Echo Park's "Jolly Branch Trio".  The flourish comes from an old kaisercraft collection. The snow flakes are Reneabouques.  And There is a cutout green bow from 49 and market.
