Bountiful Cornucopia Shaker Folio

Hello friends!  Today I'm sharing a Fall/Thanksgiving photo folio featuring Creative Embellishments Cornucopia Shaker, Autumn Leaves and Autumn Word set.  This folio measures 5" x 8" and holds 16 photos on the flip pages and several more journal tags and photos in the 2 pockets on each side of the folio.  I take a lot of photos of all holidays and occasions and this little folio is perfect for our Thanksgiving holiday because I don't take a lot of photos this day but I'm grateful for the ones I do take.

I tied some ribbon on each side of the flip pages to keep them from flopping around.  I added a chipboard leaf from the Autumn Leaves to each front page of the flip up photo mats.

When you flip up all the pages you will find 2 pockets on each side of the folio.  In these you can stash more photos and journal tags as well as little keepsakes.
I added a few more Autumn Leaves to the small pocket of my folio.

To alter my chipboard pieces I simply painted them with Metallique acrylic paint and then rubbed them with a copper wax.

Wishing you a bountiful Happy Thanksgiving!

Old Fashioned Christmas Portfolio and Card Set

Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a card and portfolio set featuring UKH Gallery Old Fashioned Christmas.  This collection comes with tags, word strips and card cut outs and you can create many projects from this amazing paper pack.  I really love that the colors are neutral and you can add that pop of color without taking away from the patterned papers and details.  I embellished the front of the Portfolio with Laserowe chipboard.

 These collection is available in the Rubber Buggy store, simply hit the link and it will take directly there.

I embellished the card using some flowers from my stash.

I also added a few items from my stash.  I added ribbon  as well as the poinsettia flowers. The glitter cards stock and adhesive gems are from my stash.

I painted the chipboard with Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint  in Dragons Eye.  I added red adhesive gems to the chipboard to decorate it.

The card is very simple and clean.  I simply layered some pieces from the collection as well as adding ribbon and flowers from my stash.  I matted the card with gold glitter card stock from my stash.

When you open the portfolio on the left is a flip page that holds 9 photos.

When you untie the ribbon on the left you get a flip page that holds 2 photos and at the bottom you have 2 pockets that hold photo mats and tags.
