Here's the Deets of the CTMH album!

Ok...after yesterday's sneak peek...it's time to share the entire project with details. I'm going from memory here...so no bashing me if my memory fails me.

To start with we used a 12x12 folder (or in the CTMH catalog it's the "True Fit Folio".) With the folder intact we scored at 6 inches one way and then flipped and scored at 4 and 8 inches. Then we opened the folder and folded on the six inch score (so we had one long folder 12 inches long by 6 inches tall). We then accordian folded on the other scores. Once the basic folding was done we reopened the folder and laid it out in front of us. We then covered each of the panels with decorative paper (in my case the paper is from the Free Spirit paper packet) to cover the panels. This paper was cut just a smidgen shy of the 4 inches (otherwise the folds don't fold so well.) Once these were all adhered we took the coluzzle and on JUST THE TOP LAYER we cut out a portion of a circle on each of the five panels to the right. Then lastly we completed it by decorating it and then using liquid glue at just the top to adhere the front of the folder to the back. And lastly...smaller pieces of cardstock were cut and slid into the pockets. I'm still not entirely done (I'd like to add some ribbon to my cardstock inserts. But all in all, I think it's adorable as is.)

All of these CTMH products can be viewed (and purchased) from Linda, my CTMH consultant. Here is her website: CTMH Personal Site. She is super easy to get along with and not pushy at all (one of the many things I love about her).

Last night I found my stampin' mojo again and made several cards that I really like...so more artwork this week! Yay!

Well, I'm glad you found your mojo again! This is a fabulous project and it never occurred to me that there were 12 x 12 file folders! *smack me on the forehead* TFS! I definitely am inspired by your piece to try one of these for myself!
