Waterfall Folio Albums

Hello again, Artsy Friends! Today was the first day post hand surgery that I have braved the craft room. I have been preparing for a lot of upcoming events, including a craft fair on Saturday November 8th from 9-3. I really wanted to create some more mini albums for the event, so I went back to a great layout for creating a waterfall folio album. The tutorial I used can be found here.

The first album I created, I used the Brushed paper pack with touches of the retired Chantilly paper pack.

I embellished the cover using cards from the My Crush Wilderness Assortment and Bling Gems Gold Assortment.

The inside contains a pocket on the left and the waterfall on the right.

For the waterfall, I used retired Chantilly (green) paper and created my own B&T with Honey Cardstock stamped with a flower from a Budding Friendship in canary. The strip in between is the zip tie from Brushed.

The second album I made was using the retired Sparkle and Shine paper pack.

The cover is embellished with the Sparkle and Shine Compliments and a heat embossed Classy Doily stamp.

The inside contains two pockets on the left and the waterfall on the right.

For the waterfall, I used Sparkle and Shine paper and trimmed it with silver shimmer trim.

For the pocket on the left, I added some cards from the Picture My Life Partridge and Pear pack.

I am entering these projects in this month's anything goes Take Heart Ideas.

Ingredients: Brushed Paper Pack (G1087), Honey Cardstock (X5668), White Daisy Cardstock (1385), Slate Cardstock (X5930), Canary Ink (Z2643), A Budding Friendship (D1602), Classy Doily (B1424), Gold Shimmer Trim (Z1985), Silver Shimmer Trim (Z1799), Bling Gems Gold Assortment (Z2023).
