The Good Life - Tri-fold Chipboard Folio By Ezme Hartman

Hello Creative Friends!

I am so intrigued with the new Foundations Memory Keeper Tri-Fold Chipboard Folio, I couldn’t wait to start with it! I love the quality of the chipboard folio and the magnetic closures. My two sisters recently visited me, they both live far away, and we wanted to preserve the memory with special photographs. My daughter took some of us here on the farm, perfect for this project and the new ARToptions Avesta collection. I added two waterfall albums to the folio and used paper from the 6×8 collection pack and paper ephemera as other embellishments would be too bulky. And also, lots of ARToptions Avesta rub-on transfers of course!

The 6×8 papers of the ARToptions Avesta fit nicely on the cover pages of the folio, both inside and outside. I adhered the pages and used the Sage stitch Washi tape from the Curators Essential Washi Tape Stitch Set all around the edges. I also used ARToptions Avesta fabric tape to cover the hinge areas of the outer covers of the folio, inside and outside. Then I used fabric tape on the inner flap of the folio. The frame with the photo is raised with foam tape and embellished with laser-cut flowers and some leftover leaves. I added a chipboard sentiment to the flap so it is easier to open. The sentiment is quite fitting.

On the outside of the right-hand cover page, I added a frame and photo again, raised with foam-tape, with rub-on transfers, laser-cut flowers, and sentiments.

I created a waterfall album to fit onto the inside of the right-hand cover of the folio. The pages measure 4×6 inches and fitted perfectly. I decorated randomly with stitch Sage Washi tape, file tabs, and rub-on transfers. The inner pages are decorated with paper embellishments from the laser-cut sheets and ephemera bits. I also added sentiments from the ARToptions Avesta rub-on transfers.

The inside of the folio has another waterfall album, the same as on the right-hand inside cover, decorated in the same way. I covered all the “spine” areas with washi tape to cover the white background of the folio. Tip: You really need lots of paper and embellishments for this project. Make sure that you have enough!
