Photoplay Winter Chalet Folio Project Share for Make & Take Tuesday
Hello, Friends! This sweet Photoplay Winter Chalet Folio is my “Pre-Thanksgiving” Make & Take Tuesday project. I had just enough time in my schedule (well, not really…but who can resist new paper?) to get this sweet folio put together. After this, I plan to hang up my crafting apron and put on my pie baking apron. You won’t hear from me again until Friday’s Heartfelt Creations Alumni Team Blog Hop.
This is a busy week for most of us with houses to dust and menus to plan and trips to the grocery store. Thanksgiving, after all, is “The Cooking Olympics”. But I thought you might enjoy grabbing a cuppa with me before the games begin!
Although there is no tutorial this week, I will share a lovely new paper collection and a fun “DIY” Photoplay folio to share with you. All the online sites are offering Black Friday specials, so I might as well tempt you with some new paper pretties to place in your shopping cart right?
Warm & Cozy Winter Chalet
Right off the bat, the color palette of this collection grabbed my attention. You just can’t go wrong with blue, green, brown and cream in a winter collection! Toss in the darling images and delightful patterns of this collection and you’ve got a real winner in my book!
Alter a Prima Resin Frame with Nuvo Toasted Almond Mousse and Metallic Wax to add to the winter vibe. Surround the shaker frame with sparkling snowflakes, winter florals and elegant ribbon. Now you have a folio that you’ll be happy to display all winter long!
Here’s a peek at the sweet little dangle charm on the album spine. I chose charms that will transfer over from Christmas to winter with no problem.
A Peek Inside
This flap style folio offers lots and lots of room for large photos. Each of these front flaps opens to reveal some really fun interactive pages beneath.
Look how huge this folio is when it is opened! There are so many elements to look at that I created a short video tour so you can see them all. I also share helpful tips as we walk through the project.

I wish you all a blessed, happy, and gratitude-filled Thanksgiving. Don’t forget to save a slice of pie for breakfast on Friday! I’ll see you then with my Heartfelt Creations Alumni Hop post.
I am truly thankful for each and every one of you. Sharing my passion for paper with you brings me so much joy. Group hug, everybody!

Kathy, this folio is just so beautiful! First of all the little snowman shaker elements are adorable and the cozy chalet in the background makes me want to be there drinking some hot cocoa in front of the fireplace. That shaker frame is beyond gorgeous and I am loving the contrast of that lovely plaid paper on the spine against the rustic paper. The charms are just wonderful and who can resist that darling little snow girl peeking out from behind her snowman? So sweet! Thank you for sharing this perfect Winter card! Have a wonderful, Blessed Thanksgiving! Hugs!
Thanks for the walkthrough and tips. This makes me I lived some place that gets lots of snow. Now go get those pies done and have a blessed Thanksgiving
Kathy this folio is unique, and whoever receives it will need time to pour over all that it reveals. Really cool colours, and as usual your embellies are the perfect match. We do not celebrate thanksgiving downunder, it is more about Christmas events this time of year. I hope you have super family time, wonderful food and plenty of laughter on thanksgiving day.
YIKES!!!! This is just amazing Kathy. It’s just jammed packed with lots of goodness. I doubt that I would even be able to follow the instructions on this already cut folio! I do like that everything is already for assembling the folio. Be well, be safe, a very Happy Thanksgiving to you & your entire family!
Beautiful folio Kathy!! You really turned this into a very “icy” look – great work, friend!!!!
WOW! That folio is amazing!!! Beautiful colour palette Kathy, I do love the blues and silvers and even pinks and gold for Christmas. The folio is truly FILLED to the brim with goodness! Have an amazing holiday with your family, just don’t eat all the pies before Thursday! hahaha. Blessings to you and yours. Thanks for sharing during this very busy time of year.
Beautiful. Have a wonderful holiday season. Wishing you peace and joy!
Beautiful folio, Kathy! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. I’m hosting, too, and right now I wish I could just hide away in my craft room and play with the paper, lol! Oh, well, back to cleaning….
