Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio Tutorial

Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio Tutorial for Frilly and Funkie “Layers of Lace” Challenge

Hello, Friends!  Is there anything more romantic and feminine than lace?  Today I have a shabby romantic Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio Tutorial to share with you.  I’ve made it for the “Layers of Lace” Challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  Before we take a look at the project, let’s see what Autumn, our lovely challenge hostess, has to say about the challenge theme.

Challenge Theme: Layers of Lace
Lace, oh so lovely lace!  Whether you add delicate layers of fine lace, or tattered and torn crocheted lace, we’d love to see you add dimension and depth to your vintage or shabby chic project with lace.  Perhaps you have a favorite lace stamp or will choose to lace something up, we’d love to see your creations inspired by this topic.
Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio: A Two Story Design

Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Once again, I’ve pulled my Mixed Media Boots out of the Closet of Shame for this challenge.  And once again, I’ve created a new style of folio, which is always really fun to do!  I’m calling this a “two story” folio with a 4.25″ x 7.5″ folio layered over a standard 5″ x 7″ top fold base with a 1/2″ spine.

This makes for a really fun, dimensional look, as well as lots of fun spots to stash goodies. I would love to make you think that I’m totally brilliant, but the truth of the matter is that this design came about by accident.  When I had finished putting the individual folio components together, which is my usual work process, I realized that the “tag” I had made to fit inside the folio was too tall!  So I had to think quickly…and this design is the result.  See?  No crafting catastrophes allowed!  Just crafting opportunities!

Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio: Cover Art

I love the look of Distress Oxide Inks over kraft paper.  If you look in the top right corner, you can see it…topped with some stenciling, a little random stamping and very light heat embossing with ultra fine gold embossing powder.

The flower is actually cut from the paper collection, spritzed with water, shaped with a stylus and then inked and painted.  Use an awl to poke a hole in the flower center, then add some stamens.

And I personally love the contrast of distressed edges, burlap and crocheted lace.  It just works for me!

Open the top story of this folio to find more lace, torn paper layers, some inked, stamped, distressed paper and a handwritten sentiment.   Make the little tea bag holder by scoring a Graphic 45 Regular Ivory Tag and lining it with designer paper. Wrap the base with more lace, just for fun!

Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio: The Ground Floor

Here’s a photo of the “ground floor” or the base for this flip folio.  Here’s how I made it.

  • Create a 5″ x 7″ card base with a top fold and 1/2″ spine.
    • First, cut an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of kraft cardstock into two 5″ x 8 1/2″ panels.
    • Place 1/2″ Scor-tape or other adhesive along the bottom edge of one panel.
    • Next, line the second panel up over the Scor-tape and press firmly to adhere.
    • Place the long side on a scoring tool and score at 7″ and again at 7 1/2″.  This forms the 1/2″ spine
    • Finally, crease along the score lines and trim away the excess paper at the bottom.

Once you have the base built, you will need to add your flaps.

  • For the gatefold flaps on the top half of the card do as follows
    • Cut two 4″ x 6″ rectangles of kraft  cardstock.
    • Place the short side on your scoring tool and score at 1/2″ on one panel.  This forms the left hand gate.
    • Repeat with the second panel, scoring at 3 1/2″ to form the right hand gate.
    • Adhere each flap to the folio base, then cover with your designer paper.
  • For the side flap cut a 5″ x 4″ panel of kraft cardstock.  Score a 1/2″ flap on the right hand side and adhere to the right hand side of card base.
Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio: A Peek Inside

This is what my folio looks like on the inside.  I paired the Stamperia Old Lace papers up with Prima Love Story.  The combination of pink and brown really works for me.

Gatefold flaps open to reveal a pair of kraft glassine pockets on either side of the larger center panel.  By gluing just 3 sides of this postcard from the Old Lace Collection, I was able to create a nifty pocket in about 2 seconds!

Each glassine pocket folds down to reveal a photo mount and a hidden journaling spot on a card hidden inside the envelope.

Stamperia Old Lace Feminine Flip Folio Tutorial: More Flaps!

Just look at the gorgeous paper on this flap feature!

Open the flap to find more interactive elements.  The back side of the flap features a pull out page with a hidden journaling spot.

This 4″ x 5 1/2″ mini folio fits neatly in the large pocket on the bottom of the base.  I’ve added some stenciled polka dots and painted edges to shabby things up even more.  But wait…there’s more!

The folio is actually a lovely little envelope.  I can’t take any credit for this at all, doggone it!  It’s part of the Old Lace paper collection.  All I did was cut it out, score and fold.  How lovely is that?  And what’s inside the envelope?

A sweet little vintage button card with real vintage buttons and a little chocolate treat.

Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio for Frilly and Funkie

Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio for the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog

Hello, Friends!  Even though the weather has made it hard to believe, Spring is on the way!  And with spring comes beautiful blooms!  That’s what we’re celebrating this go round on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge blog where the amazing Zoe is our hostess.  I’ve created a Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio to share with you today, but first, let’s see what our gracious hostess, Zoe, has to say about this challenge:

Challenge Theme: Bloomin’ Marvellous
As spring pokes its head through the frozen ground, let’s celebrate the season and create a vintage or shabby chic project with flowers as the focus and in vintage muted pastel tones, (no brights).
Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio:  The Cover

You’d have to look far and wide to find a collection that fits the parameters of this challenge better than Prima Lavender. Not only does it make me think of the pretty hyacinths that are the first spring flowers to break through the soil,  it’s also filled to the brim with floral images and soft vintage pastels.

Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

This 4.75″ x 7″ flip folio started with two 5″ x 7″ side fold card bases.  I simply added a couple of extra score lines to create double 1/2″ spines.  Then I went to work adding all sorts of flips, flaps, hidden pockets and tuck spots.  What fun!

Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 03

One of the things that drew me to this collection is the beautiful rose gold foiled accents on the 12×12 paper pad.  Of course, I love the shabby/vintage vibe of all the papers, but that rose gold foiling reeled me in!  I decided to create a shaker frame using some of it along with Tim’s wonderful Ornate Frame Bigz die.

Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio: The Shaker Element

Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

Here’s how I made this shaker element:

  • First, die cut two sets of the frame from thick cardstock.
  • Now die cut another frame using the rose gold foiled paper from the 12×12 pad.
  • Next, ink both frames with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and a blending tool.
  • Then stack both oval chipboard centers and glue together.
  • Now cover the top oval layer with the reverse side of oval center from the paper frame.  Decorate with stickers or elements from the collection.
  • Now, cover the top frame with the die cut rose gold paper,  making sure everything is lined up.  I find that liquid glue works best for this task.

Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 05

  • Next, I used my crafting hammer to sort of bang both those ovals back into the center of the inked frame.  You might not need to use a hammer, but I did.
  • Then, trace around the inside of the frame onto a sheet of clear acetate cardstock.  If you don’t have this in your stash, you can always cut up clear plastic packaging. Cut the acetate oval out and glue it to the back side of the frame.  I use Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive for this.  Use a baby wipe to clean away any excess glue.
  • Next, with the frame face down, add a double layer of Kool-Tak Clear Foam Adhesive to the inner rim of the frame. I like to use this clear foam tape as it does not show through the openings in the die cut frame.
  • Fill the inside of the frame with your shaker elements.  I used sequins and glitter here.  Don’t overfill or the shaker won’t seal properly.
  • Finally, remove the liner from the foam tape and place the prepared frame back over it so that everything lines up. Press firmly to seal.
  • Now shake it up, baby!
Prima Lavender Blooming Marvelous Flip Folio: The ribbon closure

Before you decorate your folio cover, you will want to add a ribbon closure.  I added a layer of white netting and wide crochet lace before adding the gingham ribbon closure.

Secure these layers with 1/2″ Scor-Tape.

Now the fun begins!  There are 3 sections inside the folio, each filled with flaps and flips and all sorts of wonderful interactive elements.

This is just a sample of what lies within.  You can see all the elements in the YouTube Video tour below.

Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Tri-Fold Folio

Tammy Tutterow Creative Crew Friday: Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio

Hello, Friends!  Yes, I know it’s Thursday…but to avoid double posting, I decided to share my Tammy Tutterow Creative Crew post today.  When you see this Thankful Heart Folio made with Prima’s glorious Amber Moon collection, I think you’ll forgive me.

Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Product by Spellbinders Photo 1

This lovely little folio is about the size of a clutch wallet, measuring just 4.25″ x 7″.  It all started when I was cleaning up my work desk and ran across a piece of folded brown cardstock.  Rather than toss it in my scrap pile, I decided to make it up into a card…which then became a folio.  You just never know where a project is going to take you.  I have learned to follow along.

The folio has a ribbon closure.

Nothing But Love for Thankful Heart Folio Shabby Chic background

Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Product by Spellbinders Photo 4

Here’s how to create the background panel for the cover:

  • First, cut a 4″ X 6.75″ panel of wood grain patterned paper from Prima’s Amber Moon 12×12 collection
  • Next, stamp Nothing But Love Background with Versamark Embossing Ink.
  • Then, heat emboss with super fine copper embossing powder.
  • Now, machine stitch around the edges.  Use messy stitching like I did here, or keep it neat and tidy.  It’s up to you.
  • Next, distress the edges and ink with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Then, ink up the panel with Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Candied Apple, Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks.  Spritz heavily and tip the paper to let the ink run.
  • Now heat dry until it is still a tiny bit damp.
  • Then emboss with Tammy’s Blistered Embossing Folder.  Before running through your machine, rub Vintage Photo Distress Ink directly onto the flat side of the embossing folder.  Then lay your paper panel over the raised side of the folder.  By doing this, you will impress the ink into the paper.  It’s a very cool effect.
  • Next, heat dry the paper panel completely.
  • Finally, rub a barely damp paper towel over the embossed  stamped areas to refresh the shine.  I actually had to gently reheat with my tool.
  • Now it’s ready to glue to the folio cover.
Thankful Heart Folio Cover Art

The cover art for this album is from a Gecko Galz collage sheet called Be Thankful for Fall. I printed them out, inked the edges and/or matted them then layered them up on the cover.  The circular image is glued to a Prima die cut doily.  I raised it up with waste cardboard from a shipping box .  This way, I could tuck a little surprise behind it.  Read on to find out about that!

From My Heart Tabbed Mini Pocket

Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Product by Spellbinders Photo 6

What is it about little things that makes us go “awwwww.”  That’s exactly how I feel every time I use one of Tammy’s Mini Pockets.  Here’s how I put this Tabbed Mini Pocket together:

  • First, die cut the Tabbed Mini Pocket from Amber Moon paper.
  • Then ink around all the edges, front and back, with Vintage Photo DI.
  • Now score the fold lines and glue the pocket together.
  • Add a bitty posy to the envelope flap along with an acorn charm and a bit of fiber.
  • Next, use Archival Coffee Ink to stamp “From My Heart” sentiment from Sentiments 2 Stamp set.  I stamped with my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform so I could repeat stamp until the image was dark and bold.
  • Cut out, notch corners, ink edges and mat on brown cardstock.
  • Then slip behind the doily and attach with a mini clothespin.
Inside this Thankful Heart Folio

Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Product by Spellbinders Photo 8The side pocket holds this magnet that I made with Tammy’s Rejoice Shading Stamp from Happy Grams #4 .   After stamping, embossing, and inking, I colored the images with Distress Markers.  Then I stitched a magnet between the image and a cardstock mat.  I’ve adorned the magnet with Bitty Posies and Posie Part felt flowers.  I also used Shortie Tabs to make some little banner flags from designer paper scraps.

Blessed and Framed

Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Product by Spellbinders Photo 9I framed this butterfly ephemera card with Tammy’s Rose Border Stamp.  Here’s how that worked:

  • First, cut a piece of the polka dot paper from Amber Moon that is slightly larger than the stamp.
  • Stamp the image with Versamark Embossing Ink and heat emboss with Superfine Copper Embossing Powder.
  • Heat Set.
  • To cut the inside of the stamped image, I placed my ruler on a diagonal line from top left to bottom right corner.  Then use a craft knife to cut a straight line.  Repeat this process from Top right to bottom left.
  • Next, place the ruler at the base of one of the resulting triangles.  Cut out one flap.
  • Now that one flap is removed, you can fussy cut around the inside of the frame.
  • Next, ink up Big Cheesecloth and Dear Ruby with Coffee Archival Ink/Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink.  Do not place the stamps on a block.  Just roll a random section lightly over the ink pad, then roll randomly over the white portions of the Blessed ephemera card.  Ink the edges.
  • Now, back the fussy cut frame with small strips of foam tape and place over the ephemera card.  Glue in place.Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Product by Spellbinders Photo 9

Die cut the smallest Prim Heart from felt and layer up with felt flowers to decorate the sentiment panel.

Thankful Heart Folio: The Grand Opening

Here’s a peek at the fully opened folio.

The center panel holds this pretty 3.5″ x 6″ art tag.  I’ve used another Prim Heart embellishment here.

Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Product by Spellbinders Photo 12There’s a sweet little chocolate/gift card wallet in the panel on the far right.

Prima Amber Moon Thankful Heart Folio by Kathy Clement for Tammy Tutterow Designs Product by Spellbinders Photo 13

I don’ t know about you…but I’m grateful for chocolate…and so many other good things.

I hope you survived this very long post.  But I wanted you to see all the many ways you can use Tammy’s stamps and dies to embellish your favorite paper collections.  Thanks for hanging in there with me!

Until next time!

You’ve Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box

You’ve Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box for Frilly and Funkie Trick or Treat Challenge

Hello, Friends!  Are you ready for Halloween?   I created this super cute You’ve Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box for the Trick or Treat Challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  We’ll take a look at it in just a second, but first let’s see what our hostess, the sensational Suzz, has to say about this fun challenge.

Challenge Theme: Trick Or Treat 

I challenge you to create a vintage or shabby chic project with a trick or treat.  If you are feeling funkie you might want to incorporate a trick in your design or if you are feeling frilly you can incorporate a treat.  The trick or treat can be anything from a hidden pocket, unexpected design element, a treat hidden in the card or an unusual technique used on your project.  Make sure to include in your blog post a description of your trick or treat!

You’ve Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box and Treat

You've Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Photo 2In our area, grown ups enjoy Halloween by playing  You’ve Been Booed.  Sometimes called “Ghosting” or “the Phantom”, the Halloween BOO is an Autumn take on “Secret Santa” or May baskets. Usually seen in neighborhoods–but sometimes in the workplace–BOO-ing is a friendly tradition for Halloween fun.

To start a Halloween BOO, one neighbor secretly leaves a small gift basket, a BOO poem, BOO instructions and a BOO sign at a neighbor’s doorstep.

The lucky BOO-ee is asked to post the sign near the door, alerting others that “We’ve Been BOO-ed!” That way, new BOO recruits won’t leave a duplicate BOO on the doorstep.

In turn, the neighbor is asked to BOO two other households, leading to a chain reaction–and Halloween fun.

I thought it would be fun to create a little “boo box” for my next door neighbor as she looooves Halloween.

You’ve Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box: Prepping the Box

This cute little brie box was lurking in a dark corner of the Closet of Shame.  It seemed the perfect vessel for my Boo Box.   I created the shaker top with a little vintage image that I received in an order from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  (Linda, the owner, always includes a cute little thank you package with every order. )

You've Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Challenge Photo 1Here’s how to prepare the Boo Box.

  • First, ink all the edges of the brie box with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Next, trace the cover and base onto patterned paper from Prima’s Amber Moon Collection.
  • Then cover the lid, inside and out with the cut out papers.
  • Now, ine the inside base as well.
  • Then, run Scor-Tape around the outside edge of the box and cover with Prima Amber Moon Washi tape.  The Scor-Tape helps hold the washi tape in place.You've Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Photo 6
You’ve Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box: Building the Shaker Element

You've Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Photo 3Building the shaker top took a little time and patience.  And oh, the glitter storm that filled my studio.  Heres how I did it:

  • First, die cut a Tim Holtz Pocket Watch Frame from medium weight chipboard.
  • Then cut it a two more Pocket Watch frames from Prima Amber Moon paper of your choice.
  • Next, cut a 4″ square of clear acetate cardstock.  You can always use clear packaging if you have some on hand.
  • Now, ink the edges of the chipboard with Black Soot Distress Ink.
  • Next, ink the edges of the designer paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  • Then use a craft knife to cut out the center portion of one pocket watch frame.  Ink the edges.
  • Now, glue the whole pocket watch frame to the chipboard base.
  • Next, cut thin strips of foam tape and adhere it all along the edges.  You do not want any gaps.
  • Now, glue the clear acrylic circle to the back side of the open pocket watch frame.  I used binder clips to hold it in place until dry.
  • Then, glue the vintage image to the base section of the pocket watch frame.
  • Next fill the center portion of the base with sequins, small beads, glitter…whatever you like.  Be sure NOT to overfill.  Less is more.
  • Peel the backing strips off the foam tape strips and press the dome cover in place.  Use binder clips if needed.
  • Next,run a bead of Art Institute Dries Clear adhesive around the edge of the pocket watch frame, filling in any small gaps.
  • Dust the glue with Vintage Platinum Distress Glitter.
  • Repeat this step around the plastic dome area.
  • Finally, tie ribbon around the stem of the pocket watch and use hot glue to attach to the box cover.
You’ve Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box: Finishing Touches

You've Been Booed Halloween Shaker Box by Kathy Clement for Frilly and Funkie Photo 4Die cut Tattered Florals and Tattered Leaves from Amber Moon patterned paper.  I dipped mine in a lovely puddle of Spiced Marmalade, Wilted Violet, Seedless Preserves, Frayed Burlap and WIld Honey Distress Oxide Inks before shaping and stacking.  Fill the centers with mustard seeds and spatter with Walnut Ink Stain.  Attach to the box top along with a little tag made from scraps.
