Hello, Friends! Are you enjoying the Petaloo Pets theme? I have a really fun little folio to share with you today. It's fairly quick to pull together (a day or less) and is built in a style that lends itself to display in your home or office. I used lots of pretty Petaloo posies along with Authentique's "Devoted" paper collection to make this shabby chic All You Need is Love...and a Dog folio.
The folio is made from a 5" x 7" card base with a 1/4" spine. This is an easy adaptation. When you are building your card base, score at both 7" and 7 1/4". Now you have a dimensional base that you can fill with all kinds of little photo mounts and pull outs.
The Authentique papers have a wonderful vintage/shabby chic feel to them. I emphasized this by adding Petaloo Spice Anemones, Blue Forget me Nots, and Ivory Textured blossoms. After layering up the images and patterns on the cover, I spattered them with a little diluted black paint to amp up the shabby/vintage vibe.
Here's a peek inside the folio. I find it's always hard to grasp the "flow" of a project like this with still photos, so I've prepared a YouTube video tour for you. I share lots of good tips and ideas for creating folios in this video. I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for joining me here today! If you have any questions, I'd love to hear from you in the comment section below.
