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.
