Gold Autumn Folio

 Hi everyone, 

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends. I had a nice Thanksgiving visiting with my Dad and brother and the rest of my family. 

Today I have a lovely Folio using the November Scrapbooking Kit from Tres Jolie along with some of the items from the November Card, Tag and More Kit.  I have a link to the Folio video tutorial here for you. 



Here are the supplies that we are going to use for the Autumn Folio. You will also need 4 magnets from your stash. 


I used orange cardstock for my base folio. I cut 2 pieces of 8 1/2 x 11 inch cardstock to 8x8 inches.

Score both pieces of the 8x8 inch pieces 1/2 inch on the left hand side.

Next place some glue or adhesive to the 1/2 inch flap and attach the other 1/2 inch flap on top of the adhesive.


This is how you folio should look after you adhere both pieces together. 


Next you should have a couple of pieces of cardstock that measures 1 1/2 x 8 inches, these are going to be our closures for the waterfall we create. You need to score the bottom of the strips 1/2 inch. I also have cut my pattern paper to cover the closures/arms.

Next cut 10 pieces of cardstock at 6 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches. Score the 4 3/4 at 1/2 inch so you have a flap at the top. (shown in photo)  These pieces are the waterfall for our photos.

Next cover the inside of your folio before you lay down the waterfall pieces. 


Next cover the closures and add adhesive to the bottom 1/2 inch flap. 

Place the 1/2 inch flap to the bottom middle portion of the inside cover to both the left and right had side. (shown in photo)


This is how the closures should look once the are attached. 


Next we are adding the waterfall photo mats. Place glue on the 1/2 inch flap. You will do this for both the right and left side of the folio. 

Lay the photo mat down on the left side about 1/8 inch or 1/4 inch from the top. 

Grab another photo mat place glue on the 1/2 inch flap and adhere directly under the flap you just adhered down. So place the fold of the photo mat you are adhering down at the edge of the adhered 1/2 inch flap.


When placing down the photo mats use your first photo mat as a guide to make sure the rest of the photo mats are lined up. (shown below)


Adding magnets - place one magnet at the top of the photo mat, place double back tape across to hold in place. 


Next place a another piece of double back tape with the sticky side up and place the other magnet on top. 


Next grab the closure and place on top of the magnet and burnish to the arm so it attaches. Do this for both the right and left sides of the folio. 


Now cover the all the photo mats. 

Next we have the last 2 pieces. these two piece will be scored with the 6 1/4 inch side at the top of your scoreboard. Score 1/2 inch down the left side.

Place adhesive to the 1/2 inch flap on the back side and attached to the inside folio spine. 

For the second piece place glue to front of the 1/2 inch flap and adhere down on top of the spine, this may overlap on top of the first piece, its okay. 


Cover the spine area with a 1/2 inch strip from top to bottom. Cut any excess off. 


Next I used the rest of the beautiful chipboard pieces from the Card, Tag, and More Kit. First I inked with Distress Vintage Photo ink, added glue around the chipboard and then added the Distress Spiced Marmalade on top.




Next cover the front and back of your folio. I used two of the columns from the kit and placed on either side of the window. I just love this image its my favorite.

Next I used the flowers from the scrapbook kit and decorated around the columns and window. I also fussy cut the leaves and pumpkins and butterfly from the cut-apart pages from this beautiful paper collection. I also adhered the glittered chipboard pieces in the left and right corners. 



Here is the finished folio. 


I hope you enjoyed todays project using the beautiful November Scrapbooking Kit along with the  November Card, Tag and More Kit. I just love the kits this month I hope you do too. If you haven't seen them or want to check them out press on the links to check them out, you will want to get them before they are gone.

Easy DIY Christmas Wreath

 Hello Everybody, 

Hope you are doing well today. Today I have a fun DIY Christmas wreath you can create using some chipboard pieces from Clear Scraps. I am excited to share how easy and simple this Christmas Wreath is to make. 


Here are few things you will need, in addition to this you can also use some foliage, poinsettias or what ever you have in your stash. The wreath is from dollar tree, I used the Candy Cane, Star Tree and the holly with berries. 

To get started I painted the chipboard pieces first. I used traditional colors red and green. 

After the chipboard pieces dried I added some glitter to them. 


For the Star Tree Chipboard I added some Fran-tage sparkle glitter that I heat embossed. This glitter has been in my stash for years. 

Next I added some foliage to the wreath with hot glue. 


I added the Candy Cane Chipboard piece to the bottom by hot gluing on top of the tree foliage.


I tied some ribbon on the Star Tree Chipboard, just through the hole. 

I looped the ribbon through the wreath on top and tied a knot.  I also glued down both of the Holly Chipboard pieces, one on each side.

Next I added a sentiment I found in my stash and hot glued it to the top of the my wreath. I really like how the Star Tree Chipboard piece turned out, I like how it hangs in the center.

I just love how this little wreath came out. It was super easy and took no time at all. 
I liked adding the chipboard pieces and I think it gave the wreath that traditional Christmas feel.
What great way to use your chipboard pieces for a nice wreath during the holidays. 

I hope you try this idea out by using some of these great chipboard pieces from Clear Scraps. I have the links attached to the words so all you have to do is click on the words and it will take you directly to the Clear Scraps product I used., the little Star Tree Chipboard, Xmas Candy Cane Chipboard, and Holly Chipboard. 

Thanks again for joining me today. Wishing well and Happy Crafting.

DIY Fall Altered Cutting Boards


 Hi all my crafty friends, 

It's Debbie here today with a fun Fall project using the Tres Jolie's November Scrapbook Kit along with the remaining items I have from the Card, Tag and More Kit from this month. I have the step by step tutorial down below for you as well as the video. 

To get started here is what we will be using. These little cutting boards I did get from Walmart but we will be using the Scrapbook Kit to alter them.


To start off you will trace each one of the cutting boards onto the pattern paper of your choice. You will do this for all of them. 


I traced out all of my cutting boards first and then cut all of them out. 

I used mod podge to adhere the cut outs to all the cutting boards. 

Once you adhere be sure to burnish down really well, and trim any excess paper hanging over the edges. To get the paper edges smooth I used a finger nail file to rub all around the cutting board. Do this for all the cutting board pieces.

For this first one I used the rub-ons from the Card, Tag and More Kit


For the second cutting board I decided to paint the edges to add some color. it is a but larger again trace it on the your pattern paper, and cut 


Next Add Mod Podge to the top of the cutting board. I did this for all the cutting boards when adhering my pattern paper on top. 


Adhere your pattern paper on top of the cutting board. 

Next I took one of the extra corner pieces from the Card, Tag and More Kit, and placed glue on top first and then sprinkled glitter on it. 


I adhered the glittered corner piece in left hand corner and decorated the around the pattern paper with a few of images I fussy cut out from the cut apart pages inside the Scrapbook Kit. That little fox was just so adorable I had to use him, along with the leaves and flowers. The sentiment is from my stash. 

For this piece I used a chipboard frame from my stash and turned it into a shaker with a cute scenery behind it. The scenery is from the cut apart cards from the collection. I then adhered a couple of flowers from the Scrapbook Kit and fussy cut one of the pumpkins from the cut apart sheet. The sentiment is from my stash. 


Here is photo of the cutting board covered with the wooden paper from the paper and the cut apart showing the scenery that is behind the shaker. I did add double foam tape around the oval fram.


For the last cutting board I used the wooden tree from the Scrapbook Kit and sprayed with Distress Mica Stain Specimen that came in the October Mixed Media Kit. 


I sprayed about 3 coats on and set aside to dry for a few minutes. 


This chipboard word Blessed comes from the Tres Jolie shop I have it linked here for you. I did paint it and then I sprinkled with glitter which is the glitter I used on the corner piece for cutting board #2.  I have a finished photo below.


This turned out so cut as I love the little bunny and pumpkins that I fussy cut out from the paper collection inside the Scrapbook Kit. The chipboard word Blessed really adds a lovely touch a it rests between the tree. 


Here is a photo of all 4 of the altered cutting boards.

I hope you liked todays project and found from inspiration in using the November Scrapbook Kit for any of your Fall projects.
Thanks for joining me and Happy Crafting
Debbie
