A Groovin' Scrapfolio

Well, we're back from our trip out of state, but I haven't had a chance to make anything new yet. So here's something fun we made at the first demo meeting I attended back in March. I don't know what it's called officially, but I'm calling it a Scrapfolio. It was a lot of fun to make and I hope you enjoy looking at it. I apologize in advance about the picture quality - I need to invest in a new camera and some photo editing software!

Scrapfolio coverThis is the front cover. I used the Live Your Dream set for the focal image and a sentiment from Enjoy Every Moment. The colors used throughout this project are the ones used in the Ginger Blossoms DSP: Groovy Guava, Ruby Red, and River Rock.

Scrapfolio - Left Flap OpenThis is a picture with the left flap open. There is a "card" on the opposite side of the front cover, and another "card" on the "outside" of the right flap. The next two pics show the left card open and then the right card open.

Scrapfolio - inside - both flaps and left card openThis is the inside of the Scrapfolio with both flaps open. The left "card" is also open. The center section is an "accordian file" made up of envelopes.

Scrapfolio - closeup of center accordian sectionHere is a closeup of the center section. It was made with 6 envelopes that had their top flap tucked inside and were then adhered together and attached to the scrapfolio. I used Snail in an "X" pattern to glue the envelopes in pairs back to back, and then those pairs were glued together (front to front). Sticky Strip was used to adhere the "accordian" to the folio.

I really loved making this album and I think it would look great displayed on a coffee table where visitors could open it up and discover all the neat little "hidden" pictures and journaling inside.
